My love for all things fashion comes naturally as my mother was the first woman I knew who could own a room with such undeniable class and grace. She has a special talent for finding statement pieces for unlikely pairing that makes you feel like a million bucks no matter the occasion. Naturally, I feel a child-like euphoria when I read reviews on the latest collections from cutting edge fashion houses and designers as it reminds me of those special moments in which my mother and I escaped into a world where there were no rules, only self expression.
I live for behind-the-scene images capturing the not so glamorous work it takes to deliver highly acclaimed (or critically acclaimed, who are you if you don't have haters?) collections made for rave reviews and headline news. When I want to escape the cumbersome, sometimes mundane routines of my life, I lose myself in the sweet taste of creative freedom: Fashion Week! (Seriously, it calms me....let's just call it designer meditation?!) There are fashion weeks featured throughout the world that are not covered as heavily as NY, Paris or London; and, feature some of the most underrated collections in fashion. None quite compare to New York's Fashion Week.
This week, I took a front row seat in following the headlines and developments from NYFW, now that it's officially over, (yes, I'm going through withdrawals...I may need an intervention) let's look back at the moments that made fashion forward history.
Anniesa Hasibuan, an Indonesian designer, debuts accessories destined to add exotic color pop with headscarves in silver, gold and pink in her show at Moynihan Station.
J. Crew's "real people" presentation was THE most impressive move made by a "ready to wear" retailer at NYFW where all the models were either J. Crew employees or friends and family of the brand's team.

Let's not forget all the times street style put high fashion in its place this Fashion Week, my top pick is Michael Kors' "Show Me the Luxury" campaign. #AllAccessKors

Remember when Carrie slipped on the runway on Sex and the City? Even supermodels get a taste of being road kill. When you fall, brush your stilettos off and rock that runway...Bella Hadid did that!

Thanks to body-positivists, most notably Ashley Graham, who had a front-row seat alongside Siriano, normal-size fashion has been in the conversation for the past several months. However, Siriano's presentation makes history as one of the first high-fashion collections to seamlessly include women of all sizes.

When pom-poms, knee socks, tutus, arm warmers and ballet flats are pulled off without incident, it's a good day!
