Jenny Packham

Jenny Packham's fall/winter 2014 collection at NYFW

Jenny Packham‘s Fall 2014 collection was inspired by Bianca Jagger, the dark-haired beauty and 1970s fashion muse. The show was full of sleek silhouettes, full-length skirts, and intricate beading all with a laid back attitude and hands-in-your-gown-pockets-ease. If last season Jenny took us frolicking through the countryside fields, this time our muse has gone to the city and she is looking for a great night out on the town…

Carolina Herrera

Carolina Herrera 

Though the runway was filled with geometric shapes, funky prints, and fez-like headpieces, the feel was still of simple opulence. Fur-lined sleeves and delicate beaded embellishments took certain pieces to a whole new level of luxury. Carolina always has this amazing way of bringing classic, ladylike silhouettes into our modern day world. With this collection, which I loved so much, I felt as if I was transported into the world of a film heroine, a glamorous adventure where we ride in convertibles in Monaco and take private planes from work in Manhattan to our country estates…

Jason Wu

New York fashion designer Jason Wu shows his fall / winter 2014 collection

Powerful and sleek, the Jason Wu woman doesn’t walk down the runway – she owns it.

In a muted palette of blacks, beiges, and burgundies, she is Katharine Hepburn meets Sharon Stone, she is 90s heroin chic meets CEOs. You watch as luxury is visually defined via the ripple of plum velvet over her legs as she walks right by you. She borrows her husband’s oversize coat and pairs it with her slinky, sexy second skin of a gown. You watch in awe as she passes by, head held high.

Whoever this woman is, you can’t afford her…because she’s above your paygrade.

Tadashi Shoji

Together we roam through the enchanted halls of a moonlit Moorish palace…

Tadashi Shoji is well known for his gowns which seem to flatter women of all ages, shapes and sizes (making him quite the popular fixture on the red carpet). We even had the chance to shoot one of his glorious pieces last year, so I could not wait to see what he would send down the runway this season which brought to mind gorgeous desert palaces, brightly colored mosaics, and romantic moonlit nights. I felt as though I were miles away on a brand new adventure as I watched the models drift by in the luxuriously embroidered creations of Mr. Tadashi Shoji…
