MERCEDES-BENZ FAHION WEEK
If you weren't able to find your way to Lincoln Center this year you may want to consider venturing out of the tent and support your favorite independent designer. Here is the (Part I) recap of what’s hot in the NYC studios. Three designers in particular made their mark this year starting with the choice to opt for alternative fashion week Nolcha Inc., instead of pushing four inclusions in the much crowded Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
From Fashion Week kickoff on September 6th until the 16th, EFFEN® Vodka will be quenching the thirst of models, designers and partygoers alike with their signature Fashion Week cocktails. EFFEN® Vodka created the "EFFEN® Hautini" and "EFFEN® Picture Perfect" for the EFFEN awesome guests attending the event.
However, you can re-create these tasty delights at home with their simple recipes here. They might need a little elbow grease (you will need a cocktail shaker) but the end result is worth the wait and they are delicious in any way, on the rocks or mixed drink style!
Jeremy Laing's compilation of leather and fur spun Fashion Week in a wintery direction at Milk Studios in Manhattan's trendy Meatpacking District. The rotating model exhibition combined handmade fur overlays with detail on folding and patterning. The delicate balance between high-fashion and streetwear offered a unique look to the traditional fur design.
Laing's stylistic approach modernized the classic long, fur overcoat into a waist cut jacket embellished with outward-facing folds of patterned leather, accentuating the model's features while allowing for a warm, winter appearance. Earth tones created an even more northern style juxtaposing black stockings and knee-high boots.
