This model at the Duckie Brown Spring 2013 show bravely made his way down the runway in a garment that very much resembles a fresh fabric explosion. Thank goodness he seems to have escaped unscathed.
New York Fashion Week has started, hot on the heels of the New Zealand shows. Beautiful, isolated New Zealand pushed out some unique talent — and some rather, um, creative displays for their work. Take this Kagi fashion show, where models are um, well, what are they doing? Tell us in the comments. Best answer wins our undying love.
New York Fashion Week is upon us (blergh). Which means more fashion, parties and skinny models with impossibly complex coffee orders in front of you in line at Starbucks. Truly, we love the fashion and the glamour of the shows, but the general hoopla around NYFW can be a bit mystifying/annoying. That said, we’re excited to look at what’s on the runways for Spring/Summer 2013 (what we’ll generally be seeing in stores next year). First up, feminine, but not overly precious offerings from Rachel Comey, Lauren Moffat, BCBG and more! Check them out after the jump! Keep reading »
If I could go to one Fashion Week event this year, it wouldn’t be the Marc Jacobs show (yawn), or some party thrown by Terry Richardson (blech) — no, I’d want to go to SPIN and Refinery-29′s party tonight at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, sponsored by Virgin Mobile. Why? Oh, Azealia Banks is performing and I love her. Who do I have to talk to about getting an invite? My evening in wide open. While I wait to hear back about my VIP ticket, let’s get to know Azealia, shall we? Keep reading »
People love them some pet fashions, it’s a fact. What’s better than a dog dressed up in a raincoat? Nothing. Nothing, is the answer. So we are mega-stoked that former music publicist Sophie Miller has filled the very large void in our lives (and our hearts) with her new collection, Designs by Sophie — and that she’ll be showing her latest collection at New York Fashion Week. The collection is “music-inspired,” though we’re pretty sure that dogs don’t care, and are just happy as long as they can continue to sniff each other’s butts and eat poop off the ground. And a portion of the profits from each piece goes to the Humane Society, which is good, considering most of these doggie fashions cost more than what we’d spend on ourselves. [Lucky]
To my Frisky peeps, I’m Simcha. But did you know I have a nail art alter ego? Yep, you can also call me Miss Pop. For the past couple of years, I’ve been doing up my digits, my grandma’s nails, and literally anyone’s hands I could get ahold of. And now this polish obsession has spiraled into a profession. In fact, I was just backstage at New York Fashion Week painting nails. It was so funsies that I wanted to share with you some of my fave hawt new nail looks as modeled by The Frisky staff. Check ‘em out!
This week, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week came to a close. In many ways, our fashion future has been foretold — what we saw on runways this past week will directly influence what we wear next fall and winter, whether we purchase the actual designer ready to wear (fat chance) or H&M’s take on the trends. It’s always interesting to see how real people take what they see on the catwalk and reinterpret it to make it work for them. Perhaps the best example of this are the attendees of the shows. Unlike a red carpet appearance, celebrities, models, editors, and questionably employed It girls turn up in pseudo-casual ensembles fit for the most stylish impresarios on the streets. Here’s my 10 picks for the most covetable looks on attendees at NYFW.
It was a wild and crazy week in the fashion world. In addition to the runway shows taking over New York, everyone was talking about the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and a few major fashion brands floundered financially. Meanwhile, we drank wine and plucked our eyebrows (as per usual). Here are the top 10 style stats that caught our eye this week… Keep reading »
New York Fashion Week F/W has come to a close, and we’ve seen all that the designers had to offer in their Fall/Winter 2012 Ready-to-Wear collections. We’ve assembled all of our favorite fall/winter looks from the shows in this gallery — tell us what you think of these designers’ looks in the comments!
Well isn’t this a nice change now. Taylor Momsen wearing something other than undergarments and bloody, ripped fishnet stockings with thigh-high boots that could be used as arsenal in their own rights. And doesn’t she just look lovely?
Taylor here was photographed at New York’s Fashion week, where she kept the company of Stacy Keibler, Bar Refaeli, and other prolific women not generally known for using electrical tape on their nippies, sacrificing goats onstage or wearing black leather all of the time and hooking up with questionably-aged music fans. Maybe girlfriend could take a few pointers from these classy ladies, huh? Read more…
