LFW: Richard Nicoll

I think Nicoll's use of color is what wowed me. In the midst of dark color pallettes and neutrals dominating the runways, Richard Nicoll's collection stood out proudly showcasing rich colors such as royal blue, deep red, and powder blue. Along with the beautiful color scheme, the collection also consisted of clean silhouettes and modest cuts. Richard Nicoll's collection was defnitely one of my favorite collections during London Fashion Week.

NYFW: Public School

In the midst of heavyweight champions of NYFW such as Alexander Wang and Rag & Bone, Public School managed to capture my attention. This up-and-coming brand has been under the heated spotlight as the designer duo won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award last November. The designers, Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, branched out to include womenswear in the collection's repertoire during the 2014 New York Fashion Week. The duo claims that the Public School girl was intended to be an androgynous counterpart for the boys. Thus, the ensembles for both men and women were similar in color scheme, silhouettes, broad-brimmed hats, and oversized outerwear. Overall, the collection was very suited for the ever-so-stylish New York City due to its cool, urban aura.

2014 A/W Fashion Week Favorites

I originally had this idea of recap-ing my favorite shows and moments that happened as Fashion Week was going on but wasn't able to get it into action due to an unexpected plethora of work that left me little time to blog. However, I thought this was just too fun of an idea to pass up on so I decided to report my favorite happenings in Fashion Week even if it may be a tad bit late. So let's kick off this mini-series with my personal favorite aspect of Fashion Week: street style. Just out of curiosity, which city's street style game was your favorite?
