NY Fashion Week Round Up - Fall 2014

Oh Fall Fashion Week, you have put me out of my misery of the snowpocalypse and put me into a dreamlike state filled with wonderful designers, inspiration, and draw dropping silhouettes. One of these days I hope to make it to at least a few shows, but for now, check out the top three shows, I have been obsessing over this week. Who has been your favorite?

Right before her runway show, designer Michelle Smith commented backstage that she "thinks some of the new ballerinas are the new style stars, like Maria Kochetkova from the San Francisco Ballet." This comment ties perfectly into her fall collection fit for any prima ballerina. All of her silhouettes floated down the runway in lush fabrications of sequins, fur, and velvet. I am purchasing one of these pieces and then headed to Lincoln Center this Fall to catch the Ballet in style.

Jordana Warmflesh, who got her start working for powerhouses Zac Posen and Alice + Olivia. Is an emerging designer who has become recognized for her unique original prints and retro-inspired silhouettes. 
Her recent collection was inspired by Bauhaus artist Paul Klee which she interpreted his expressionist paintings into a plethora of different ways. From swingy topcoats in beautiful blocked plaid to pretty watercolor landscape prints featured on dainty frocks and minis, she is on the right path to making a big name for herself in the industry.

Jill Stuart's Fall collection is a New Yorker's dream - black, black and more black. Although somewhat monotone, each silhouette is sweet yet sexy produced in a variety of lush fabrications. She was quoted before the start of her show that her muse this season is "a girl with attitude who likes to pick her clothes instinctively. She's massively unpredictable and boyishly poetic - an irregular beauty." With a muse like that, I will have one of everything please.
