New York Fashion Week kicks off tomorrow, Sept. 5th and runs through Sept. 12, 2013. One of the Spring 2014 collections that I can’t wait to see is Boy Meets Girl by Stacy Igel.
Fashion Week starts early with the first-ever public fashion show on the High Line, New York City’s elevated railway-turned-park. The Friends of the High Line will present the High Line Back-to-School Teen Fashion Show on Thursday, August 29 at 7:00 p.m. within the Chelsea Market Passage, the semi-enclosed passageway on the High Line between West 15th and West 16th Streets in Manhattan. The show will be free, and open to visitors of all ages.
Every Spring, the Metropolitan Museum of Art pays tribute to fashion with its Costume Institute Exhibition. The Met’s spring 2013 Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture, examined the punk movement’s impact on high fashion from its inception in the early 1970’s through its continuing influence today. The exhibition, which closes on Wednesday, features approximately 100 designs for men and women that include original punk garments and recent fashions to illustrate how haute couture and ready-to-wear borrow punk’s visual symbols.
On a recent summer evening, I had the pleasure of attending a “Style Night” event hosted by Caravan Stylist Studio at the Carlton Hotel in New York City. It was a night of jewels, vintage styles and rare finds, thanks in large part to Shopbevel and Wiseling.
The scene was relaxed as people browsed the tables and racks of beautifully displayed jewelry, vintage fashions and accessories. Nothing makes me happier than to sift through racks and racks of gorgeous clothing and try on dazzling jewelry, in search of that one piece that speaks to me.
