Stuff you can wear regardless of your company's dress code.
And she's not the only one who's got first dibs on the new season loot.
We've given you a sneak peek at what fashion week is like for an editor-in-chief thanks to Glamour's Cindi Leive--but what does it look like for a fashion director? Glamour's own Anne Christensen is giving us the behind-the-scenes scoop on what fashion week was like for her.
If you’re looking for the next big designer, look no further than Parsons School of Design’s MFA Graduate show. Shown at MILK Studios, it’s a test tube for what’s next in the world of fashion. Last week saw editors, designers, and supporters alike (Donna Karan and Fern Mallis to name a few) pack the rows to view what could be considered New York Fashion Week’s most exciting telescope into the future. We chat with three of the showing graduates about the challenges of crafting their collections, their futures, and more.
If you felt a little alone watching the spring shows on your home computer this fashion week, you were actually far from it: According to Mashable (via IMG and Rightster) more than 630,000 people tuned in to watch livestreaming runway shows this New York Fashion Week--59 collections in total--an approximately 50% increase from last season.
Leave it to Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen to create a collection chock full of killer basics to close out New York Fashion Week. Their contemporary Elizabeth and James line has grown in recent seasons to include everything from a newly-announced fragrance to handbags, jeans, footwear, sunglasses, and jewelry. While their ultra-luxe line, The Row, went all resort-boho, E and J kept things calm and collected with clean day-to-night variations.
Another New York Fashion Week has come to an end, and as usual, we had a really tough time choosing our favorite spring collections. After much analysis, though, we’ve successfully narrowed it down to 10 that stuck out the most in our minds.
Invent as many fancy fashion apps as you want, tech world. Instagram will always (okay, well, maybe not always) be the fashion crowd's app of choice, and its influence has never been as prominent as it was during this past New York Fashion Week. Not only was everyone posting Instagram pics of everything, at all times, but, at times, it almost felt like designers and producers actually had Instagram in mind while planning shows and presentations.
It's Friday, which means that for better or worse, the circus that is New York Fashion Week has come to a close. But while we're icing our feet and catching up on our carbs (mmm...pizza), most of these models are on their way to the UK for London Fashion Week!
Since everyone loves an awards show, I decided to bestow all the most notable looks with completely made up awards. From "Best Neck Makeup" to "Best Giant Cornrow," no detail was left unrewarded. Click through to see the most original and innovative beauty from the spring 2014 shows.
How do you get Cara Delevingne, Sky Ferreira, and Georgia May Jagger on one runway? Be Marc Jacobs.
This year marks Francisco Costa's 10th year as creative director of Calvin Klein Collection. It's a big milestone so there's bound to be more attention focused on this spring 2014 collection. Of course, he delivered.
It was sort of fitting that a thunder-storm dumped sheets of rain on New York right before Marc Jacobs's spring 2014 show. As we came in to the Lexington Ave. Armory dripping wet (OK, those of us without drivers came in dripping wet), it was all the more disorienting to be washed up on the hot (really hot! intentionally hot!) shores of some post-apocalyptic, post-rager beach. Bits of drift wood, a life-preserver, a beat up bus to "Dark Hollow", a giant Adirondack chair, and pieces of unstable looking boardwalk dotted the massive set. Cigarette butts and mussed-up old Vogues were submerged in the black sand that covered the runway. So what kind of clothes could possibly make sense in this kind of setting?
