On 9/5/18 the brand KUR by Sri Lankan designer Kasuni Rathnasuriya kicked off fashion week with their SS19 collection. Simplicity Redefined are the words that I would use to describe this collection. Clean white silhouettes with handmade Dutch and Portuguese lace, A-line skits and crisp cargo pant suits were worn by the models while carrying oversized leather bags. Comfy mules completed the look of the collection which Rathnasuriya named “Compact Traveler.” The collection was a mix of business casual and leisure. Perfect for any women on the go or just staying at home and relaxing.
Kur is an authentic women’s ready –to –wear brand that expresses a sense of freedom. The brand draws inspiration from the tradition and heritage of Sri Lanka. If you would like to see more of their collection or purchase any items please visit their online store at www.kurcollection.com
Amanda Mehl of the fashion label AMehl is the daughter of fashion designer Beverly Mehl, so some might say fashion is in her blood. With an eye for style and an imagination that would not stop, Amanda would hit the garment district at a young age. With a background in art Mehl creates unique fun pieces that are fun and fashion forward.
Her SS19 collection was certainly that. Unconventional and out of the box; Mehl brought the “flower child” to life when she turned a floral shop on West 28thStreet into a runway show. Mixed prints, glitter, ruffles, leaves and even some gardening tools were all incorporated in AMehl’s SS19 runway show.
Amanda was born in Buenos Aires and lived in Telaviv for 10 years. She is currently living in New York City. If you want to see more of her collection or purchase any pieces please visit her website at www.amehlnyc.com
For the first day of Fashion week I decided to go for a comfortable look. It was still hot up here in New York so I opted for cute and casual, so I found the perfect combo at www.foxs.com I am in LOVE with these cute high waisted bell bottom jeans from Fox’s Designers. You can honestly wear them in any weather. Just throw on some shoes or boots and you are good to go.
