I am back! I know has been less than a week, but to me it has felt like an age! I am now all moved into my new House and I love it, but the Internet and phone etc did not get fitted until today so I have been itching to get going on the blog again.
I will be doing a full post on my new room and accessory and clothes storage, but that won't be for a few weeks till I have it just the way I want ( I am very picky) but it is really nice to have lots more space and has given me new storage ideas which is good.
However even with my lack of Internet, I made sure I could keep up on all the fashion events, Vogue's Big Night Out, which I was gutted I had to miss and off course New York Fashion Week! They both were a huge success and I have been loving seeing all the pictures hearing all the backstage gossip, like the cat fight that broke out at Zac Posen over the waiting time for seats- how fashion is that!!
So this post is my top picks of New York Fashion Week, it was hard to chose, as there were so many, but one thing was clear, SS13 is going to be very different from SS12, and it's very exciting!
Jenny Packman is know for her stunning and often over the top designs and this SS13 collection was the same. It was full Hollywood glamour with sequins and sparkle placed on stunning fabrics, although in the middle of all the glamour, I loved the playful spotted dress that was the highlight for me.
This new collection was a triumph for Mrs Beckham. It was a move away from the signature dresses that she has made her own since her early designs and a introduction to separates and tailoring. However she still was able to bring a more relaxed feel to the pieces with a lighter material and some stunning pleats. A really wearable collection of clothes.
I am a huge fan of Jason Wu, his AW12 collection was one of my favourites and these designs are equally beautiful. There was a lot of structure to the pieces as well as a mix of leather and lace and the contrast was really interesting. And the show stopping navy dress is literally amazing!!
There was a real middle eastern feel to this collection, with beautiful fabrics and intricate details. The fringing was over the top and fabulous and still maintaining the stunning lines that Marchesa always brings to clothing.
I hope you like my picks, I just got so excited when I saw these designs, and to me that is one of the best things about fashion, everyone has their own take on things and that is what keeps things fresh and new. Who were your top designers and favourite collections?
Now New York is over I am soo excited about London Fashion Week! I have tickets for shows on Saturday and I can not wait. I will be tweeting through out the whole event so be sure to check in to my twitter and facebook for updates.
I am also going to one of my closet friends in the worlds 30th Birthday this weekend and it is going to be amazing. Loads of my friends are coming and it will be such great catch up as we are all dotted round the country now. I have got a new outfit for this so I will be posting pics of that very soon.
Anyway, I will go and get back to unpacking!
