10 Fav Looks: Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren's Spring / Summer 2015 collectionRalph Lauren always takes us on a journey, be it the rolling green estate of an English manor, the perfectly fitted and delicately embellished world of Jay Gatsby or lost on the shining streets of Paris at night. This season we find ourselves embarking on the greatest journey of all- Safari. With a slight military embellishment and topped off with colorful crystals that take my mind deep into wilds of India, Ralph Lauren takes on trekking in the chicest way possible. The closing dress to the show gave me goosebumps and a rush of a thousands visions of photographic moments: running through the tall grass on a vast savannah, riding on the back of an elephant enveloped in clouds of red dust or climbing on to a prop plane under a setting sun in the most ‘Out of Africa‘ romantic way possible…

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…

Tadashi Shoji

New York designer Tadashi Shoji fall winter 2014 collection shown at NYFW.

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…
