The Best Of NYFW: Rachel Comey’s Raw-Hemmed Glamour

The Best Of NYFW: Rachel Comey's Raw-Hemmed Glamour

Rachel Comey consistently makes clothes for the most glamorous arts and crafts teacher you’ve ever met in your life. Her latest collection shown at NYFW is no exception. Tons of volume — one can’t be too encumbered when in the midst of a macrame project! — a mixture of neutrals and nature-plucked colors (I love the red and purple moments, especially), and fabric edges left raw rather than perfectly hemmed, like her muse got fed up and went at them with a pair of sheers. Wearing clothes like this in real life is all about proportions. A voluminous swing dress works best at a mini length with heels — heeled clogs, preferably. Check out some of my fave pieces from Rachel Comey’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection below!

The Best Of NYFW: Jill Stuart’s Feminine Take On ’70s Utilitarian Cool

While I love clothes, spend way too much time pinning shit I cannot afford on Pinterest and love assembling fake outfits in Photoshop for regular style features like One Times Three and Fashion Math, I do not consider myself a fashion person. That’s probably why writing about my favorite shows at New York Fashion Week always results in me using and abusing the English language because I don’t know how to do so in a way that doesn’t sound ridiculous. For example, the headline on this post about Jill Stuart’s runway show — “[a] feminine take on ’70s utilitarian cool.” I know what I mean – that the collection had some crunchy, granola, ’70s vibes, with both an air of practicality and femininity to the clothing — but goddamn is it hard to briefly capture in a way that doesn’t sound outrageously stupid. So I decided to embrace it. Please enjoy my dumb headline above and the awesome clothes from Jill Stuart’s spring/summer 2015 runway collection below!

The Best Of NYFW: Tracy Reese Mixes Prints With Panache

The Best Of NYFW: Tracy Reese Mixes Prints With Panache

The only thing I love more than a bold print is multiple bold prints worn together, dammit! That’s why I’m so hot for many of the looks shown at Tracy Reese’s Spring/Summer 2015 runway show. Reese is known for embracing bright colors and standout fabrics, but I absolutely loved how she didn’t hold back on mixing foliage prints with cheetah spots and large florals. And of course, there were plenty of her adorable trademark frocks and lots of sophisticated black to round things out. Click through the gallery below to see some of my faves…

Shop The NYFW Trend: 13 Ways To Get Your Gingham On

Gingham was a big component in Diane Von Furstenberg’s NYFW runway show this week, and while her designs won’t be available until spring 2015, there’s no reason why you can’t rock the hell out of some gingham now. Here are 13 pieces to start with…

This NYFW Designer Featured A Quadruple Amputee On The Runway

The Most Inspiring Part Of Fashion Week

Designer Carrie Hammer began her “Role Models Not Runway Models” campaign earlier this year to feature and design for professional women who are underserved in the fashion world. In February, Hammer included a woman in a wheelchair in a runway show, not realizing at the time that her show was the first in history to do so. Karen Crespo, a 30-year-old who lost her limbs to bacterial meningitis, saw the show and contacted Hammer to thank her for including women with disabilities in her work. Last Friday, Crespo modeled in a New York Fashion Week runway show in a dress named after her. Keep reading »

The Best Of NYFW: Diane Von Furstenburg Goes Gaga For Gingham & Colorful Accents

When I think of gingham, I envision picnic blankets and pizza parlor tablecloths and 1950s’ school girls — I don’t think of ass-kicking lady bosses with six-figure salaries and about as many boytoys. But that is exactly what the gingham — accented with splashes of bright colors and island-perfect prints — at Diane Von Furstenberg’s spring/summer 2015 runway show at New York Fashion Week conveyed.
