Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren Fall 2015 collection show at New York Fashion Week This might just be the coziest thing I’ve ever seen walk down the runways of New York Fashion Week. Ralph Lauren managed to perfectly balance the modern day woman that wants to look polished but comfortable, classic but current, with a life that is both urban and rural. I loved the creams, tans, chocolates, sage and gold which automatically puts you in the mood for autumn leaves and crackling fires. The first heart-stopping moments for me was a spectacular ivory lace gown with a victorian neck collar that reminded me of this old fashioned romance. Then, in total Americana glamour, he closed the show with the perfect golden goddess gown and I was once again, living in a Ralph Lauren world.

… before the show I went backstage to shoot some of the looks up close and personal which are mixed in below with my favorite runway moments!

Marchesa

Marchesa__02

The Marchesa show is always one of opulent fantasy and this season was no exception. Hosted at the glamorous St. Regis New York, models cascaded down the runway under swaths of sparking chandeliers, mirrored walls and classic molding. Tucked away in this grandeur of an intimate ballroom we floated into designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig’s inspiration of Opium Dreams translated into gowns of billowing smoke, 3-D floral embroideries, fiery explosions of poppy red, a dance of seduction in barely there crystal embroidery and an ocean of waltzing fringe reminiscent of far away parties from jazz era opulence.

Now this is a dream I could dream forever…

Oscar de la Renta

ODLR_02

With the passing of Oscar de la Renta last October we have all been wondering what Peter Copping would do in the his new role as creative director and the seemingly impossible task of carrying on the ladylike empire Mr. de la Renta built.

When I arrived at the venue over looking New York’s Bryant Park the first thing I noticed was the switch from a floral, white, lovely decor to something more sleek, modern and dark. As the show began I could see a lot of Oscar in the suit tailoring and chic styling. I like the way Mr. Copping used fur, I loved the way he tied silk scarfs around the girl’s necks and some of the gowns looks as if they walked off the set of an Audrey Hepburn movie, that classic glamour I’ve always looked for from ODLR. I noticed more solid black which I personally liked, wonderfully feminine shoes and of course perfect ball gowns.

Of course, no one will ever fill Oscar de la Renta’s shoes, but he can reinterpret them… on the runway… with little black bows on the side.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Photographer Jamie Beck photographs garden roses she grew from her own garden

I have a very, very deep love for roses that goes all the way back to my childhood. It first began in with my grandmother’s rose bushes, trimming them, cutting the flowers to take to my elementary school teachers. Growing up in Texas my father would always bring me a dozen yellow roses on special occasions and now from time to time when I come home from New York to visit.

This past summer I put a lot of love and attention on the terrace at the back of our studio in Tribeca. It’s a small urban garden but in a city this compact I feel pretty lucky to have the amount of outdoor space I do. I grew my first rose garden, the flowers in these shots I cut from these bushes. I was so proud every time a new bud would emerge and in the mornings when I sat outside with my coffee I would touch the petals and remember the sweet lingering memories of my childhood.

Tending to a garden, making sure that someone is there to take care of it when you’re traveling or working the hours away was a lesson for me. A lesson in care, patience and pride. I realized, it’s not unlike relationships. If you don’t tend to them, take care of them, they too can wither and die. It’s not much that we need, just some sunlight and water and it’s amazing what things can blossom into and make your life a richer place.

So on this Valentine’s Day I give you roses and I hope your own gardens are full of love.
