Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York is already off to an exciting start! On Tuesday, just 2 days before the official first day, Maison Jules showcased a very feminine, artistic, and chic FW 2014 collection at Art Beam. Hats and fun prints were prevalent in the Parisian-themed line. On Wednesday, the Couture Council of The Museum at FIT honored Carolina Herrera with its 2014 Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion at a beautiful luncheon at the David H Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. Notable guests such as Renee Zellweger, Lucy Liu, and Ivanka Trump looked stunning in Carolina Herrera dresses.
That same day, New York Men’s Day took place at Industria Studios and I was able to see 5 of the designer’s SS15 collections: Stephen F, Antonio Azzolo, Carlos Campos, and Original Penguin. Each one had some great bright colors and mixed prints. WHIT also had an SS15 presentation at ONISHI PROJECT Pop-up Gallery on Wednesday. Her collection included flirty, feminine, and floral looks. What a great kick-off lineup! Check out some of the photos I took at these events. More to come, stay tuned!
