Jeremy Scott, fondly known for his eclectic and often times outlandish approach to fashion; will be heading to Moschino and adding Creative Director to his long list of fashion duties, including his partnership with Adidas as well as his own fashion brand. Scott is no stranger to the brand, having even interned for the fashion house during his final year as a student at Pratt University. The designer was approached by Moschino in July in a seemingy effortless attempt to snag the print-loving "fashionisto" as the brand ushers in a new phase. The rest is history.

Wendy Scalzo, a talented Rhode Island Cosmetologist, had the opportunity of a lifetime when she was asked to work on the Ruth Tarvydas show. Held in the Altman Building in Chelsea, Scalzo worked (along side other cosmetologists, Robin, Nicole, Hannah, Kim and Mayra) to make the designer’s vision a reality. “She [Tarvydas] had a specific vision that came to life on the runway with assistance from the garments, hair and makeup.” Scalzo says that Tarvydas’s vision was an underwater effect. “She wanted it to seem as if the hair was suspended in the water, floating up away from the face.” For makeup, the models rocked a “very strong mask, directly across the face. They had dark brows that faded to the cheeks.”

In true New York fashion, the city is gearing up for a week of sizzling style, long catwalks and haute couture. Many elements come into play to make New York Fashion Week the mega event that it is. One of the key elements in making the week a success is none other than the models. A fashion designer's creation is brought to life by a sexy curve, a special "smize" and the electric walk of a fashion model. We know the designer receives many things like acclaim and accolades, but what exactly do the models get after a week of strutting their stuff?
The greatest aspect to Jane Basch's pieces is they are fashion forward yet timless, elegant yet edgy, and can literally be worn with everything, from jeans to your most stylish dress. Celebrities agree, and at any given time you may spot Justin Bieber, Khloe Kardashian, Carly Rae Jepsen or Kerry Washington wearing a customized monogram piece of jewelry by Jane Basch.
During the presentation, Jane - who is stylish and elegant - shared how many years her company has been in business and that quality is of the utmost importance when designing her collection. "Many trends come and go, I've seen it all -- but we shall remain." It's that perfect melding of what's brand-new with what's always in-style that's the key to her continued success.
It also was an enjoyable evening, because we were able to chat with other writers and editors, such as those from Brides magazine. All of the fashionistas that attended the preview event were able to custom design their very own personalized monogram piece of jewelry -- choices were necklaces, earrings, rings and it was hard to decide. Joonbug decided on a bold ring with our initial in a script "D." There's an emphasis on oversized jewelry this fall with Jane saying "bigger is better." There still are her petite personals and other pieces of more delicate jewelry for those that favor a more sublte-look. We have always felt there's a sense of pride and power in wearing your initials and name on a piece of fine jewelry. Jane also makes her pieces affordable to all with many stylish designs priced from $60 and up! It was a beautiful evening at the quintessential Central Park Loeb Boathouse for a quintessential brand. Bravo to Jane Basch for custom designed jewelry that no matter who you are -- you always feel like a million bucks! Layer on pieces and create a look all your own.

But for all you dancing divas, there just might be the perfect and fashionable solution to sore and achy feet. Picture a shoe that is sexy enough for a night out on the town, yet extremely comforatable. So much so that you can keep going all night on the dancefloor with absolutely no side effects.
