the Rose Captain.

Fridays are for fashion. I know it is Saturday {edit: Sunday, I'm sorry!! I'm still trying to get into the habit of blogging!}, but I am a busy little girl. Friday night I participated in my first fashion show! I was fortunate enough to be hired on as a dresser for Kevan Hall.

If I have learned anything from the Hills or the City it's this:

Kelly Cutrone: Why aren't you wearing black?



My favorite dress from the collection.


There was a lot of steaming dresses. There was mannequin dressing. There were rehearsals. There was a lot of waiting (the show was an hour late.) Then came the madness - I zipped, hung, and buckled faster than I ever have. And in a matter of 30 frantic minutes - it was over. Those 30 minutes, were one of the best minutes I have ever spent. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am so thankful to of had this handed to me. I can not wait until next time, better yet - I cannot wait until MY clothes are going down the runway!


IT'S MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR!!


Friday marked the first day of New York's fashion week!

Thank god for my iPhone so that I am immediately updated from Style.com

Dark somber colors {black and various shades of grey} as well as draping detail will be big for Fall 2009.


Hell



Cushnie et Ochs


Where is the rest of the outfit???



BCBG Max Azria


I'm a fan of BCBG but the weird gold/bronze leggings and the stalky dresses do nothing for me.



Costello Tagliapietra


I'm thinking this is just a bad photo of the model...




Purgatory



Acne


I'm not sure how I feel about these clear vinyl pants/leggings {whatever you wish to call them} ... I find them highly innovative, I just don't think I like them.



Acne


I am in no way a fan of one shoulders, but, are you kidding me??? This dress is amazing!! I just cannot get over it! Ugh! It is gorgeous! And the shoes! Oh, the shoes!



Rachel Comey


Uhh...



Rachel Comey


Still a hot layering mess, but it works.



Shipley & Halmos


I'm not a fan of Shipley & Halmos' womenswear...


BUT


Shipley & Halmos


The menswear was to die for!

I picked this look just for the "Ducky" factor. When I say "Ducky" I mean the character from Pretty in Pink , not an actual duck.




Heaven



Abeté


What can I say? I am a sucker for a comfy tank and tulip skirt.



Charlotte Ronson


I count Charlotte Ronson as one of my top five favorite designers. This collection was not my favorite but I still have mad love for the girl. This floral jumpsuit was my favorite piece in the collection {I love my jumpsuits and I love my floral prints!} I am loving the draping detail at the hips! This element showed up several more times in Ronson's collection, as well as several other designers.



Christian Cota


I've never heard of Christian Cota before, but after viewing the slide show of his Fall 09 collection - I fell in love. Assuming these adorable tailored shorts are not leather, I would wear these all the time - give my "leatha" leggings a rest. If they do happen to be leather, then I don't want anything to do with them - even though they are so cute. The navy tights have my main focus though. I can't wait to rock a pair come fall.



Christian Cota


This brings a whole new level to the little black dress.




Christian Cota


This has got to be the most awesome skirt I have ever seen. Seriously. I have never witnessed anything like this skirt. This is the kind of design that A) makes me want to go shrivel up in a corner, because, never in a million years would i think of this and B) inspires so much creativity in my head, to the point that I have no idea what to do with it.


Christian Cota


Umm...have I mentioned that I love Christian Cota?


I don't even know what to say...



Jason Wu


Love the Frida Kahlo headpiece.





Jason Wu


Color is a good thing.



Jason Wu


This reminds me of one of my mothers vintage prom dresses.





Stærk



Stærk is another line I am unfamiliar with but so far it is my favorite collection. It was a collection that mixed tough with lady-like accents. Just my cup of tea. I really wish I had this bustier and skirt to wear as I danced to Madonna, circa 1980 of course.



Stærk


I'm always buying mens t-shirts to wear as dresses, so of course I'm going to love the idea of a men's tuxedo jacket as a dress.





Stærk


I told you I love me a great jumper. I am 172finity % positive this is the most absolute darling jumper I have ever seen. I need it!



Stærk


This is my favorite look from the collection. I love the stirrup legging. I love the trench, even though I would have absolutely no where to wear it. Most of all I love the deer antler accent!




I was planning on updating more later on tonight but it's taken me 5 hours to post this with complications and I'm exhausted. I'll be back tomorrow with # 2, valentine's day, and of course more from fashion week!
