Step into Spring!

It's finally starting to feel like Spring here in New York! The birds are chirping , the flowers are blooming and I'm falling in love with the weather of course (lol) ! It feels so good not to have to bundle up well at least during the day that is. At night there is still a winter wind that sends chills down your back! (not a pleasant feeling I must say)  Anyway I decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and do a photo shoot! I absolutely LOVE Spring! Not too hot not too cold it's the perfect weather combo. You can put on a summer dress with a jacket or rock some cute opened toed shoes. Here's to...

PFW / Part 2

My second show was a presentation by designer Martin Grant. Martin is an Australian designer who launched his first ready to wear collection at the tender age of 16. He was quickly noticed by the Australian fashion industry and was named designer of the year. This young prodigy went on to study sculpture at the Victorian College of the Arts, but soon after relocated to Paris where he established his studio. There he produced his first runway show in the heart of the Marais district.

NYFW / The Shows / Part 1

New York Fashion Week is always such an exciting time, from getting ready and becoming "fashionably fabulous" to waiting for the shows to start. I just love the glitz and glam of it all, but more importantly than that I value the people I meet during fashion week. I have met some pretty amazing people along the way who I now consider my friends. This past fashion week was no exception. I had a wonderful time seeing old faces and getting to meet new and exciting people in this industry. Some people may say that the fashion industry is full of self absorbed arrogant snobs who have nothing better to do then dress up and take pictures, well I certainly...
