During Fashion Week, industry vets can attest that there is plenty of action - if not more - going on outside Lincoln Center.
Many designers and labels are choosing off-site venues around the city, to not only enhance the ambience of their collections, but to truly tailor and personalize the showing experience. With a myriad of venue spaces available throughout the city, many more designers have the opportunity to show rather than compete for prime real estate at one of the elusive spots at Lincoln Center; ultimately allowing for greater exposure, press coverage and buyer presence. Past seasons have seen it all from school classrooms, to converted mansions, to bars and this time around, the Spring 2014 collection season promises to deliver.
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has officially commenced here in the city of New York.
Bringing with it the ready-to-wear collections for the upcoming Spring 2014 season, waves of excitement and creative energy fill the air and descend upon the streets. This season we'll be keeping you up-to-the-minute with our Fashion Week coverage, from shows and presentations happening in and around the city, to collection reviews and street style, and much more so be sure to check in for your daily dose of NYFW.
There is a certain incandescent ambiance in the air as the beloved Fashion Week returns. Fashionistas wait impatiently for the first day to arrive so that they can pull their best ensembles out of hiding and hit the streets for some couture fun. Tinges of uncertainty bounce around every fashion magazine as contributors wonder what each designer will bring to the catwalk that year. However, with the recent elimination of the infamous event, "Fashion's Night Out," one has to wonder, will Fashion Week this year be as exciting? It was said back in February that the Vogue-funded occasion would no longer take place due to the revaluation of the event’s actual significance.
The BCBG Fall 2013 Collection during Mercedez Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center was inspired by the archiecture of Istanbul and the gypsies of southern Europe. There was a certain air of mystery to the packed show as Max Axria and creative director Lubrov Azria described how layering fabrics was influenced by gypsies that Lubrov encountered on one of her latest journeys abroad. Hair and makeup were kept simple, as most models had their hair covered by chic beanie hats. Nails were done by OPI in a dark matte grey which complemented blue hues, intricate prints, deep reds and black & white combinations that were showcased in the Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Leather leggings were also seen beneath many of the interesting runway looks. The music that played in the background made you feel as if you were ready to go on a fashionable adventure somewhere far-away and exciting.
