Fashion Designer Gita Omri poses for a photo-op with her models at her Fall 2014 Collection
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
For fall 2014 Gita was looking at the nostalgic childlike excitement of going to the circus. Her visual research was focused on old traveling circuses from the 1920’s-30’s. As the research and initial sketches evolved Gita found herself more and more fascinated by the costumes and headpieces. Everything was so intricately made. Lots of beading and fine embroidery covered the showgirls and clowns.

This high-end women’s wear collection is very feminine and romantic. It is designed in a way that enhances the wearer’s beauty rather then over shadow it.

My favorites at the Oscars included Lupita Nyong'o in fabulous Prada.  The first time Academy award winning actress for "Best Supporting Actress" chose a pastel sky blue that she expressed reminded her of the shade of blue in Nariobi of her native land.
 
Actress Jennifer Lawrence looked stunning in a Red Dior Gown with diamonds dripping down her back.
 
Actress Charlize Theron looked very Old Hollywood in a black Dior gown accessorized with the most beautiful Harry Winston diamond drop neckace worth a whopping $15 million smackaroos.
 
Best Actress Kate Blanchett looked divine in gorgeous intricately beaded Giorgio Armani nude gown.  The gown was complimented with tremendous Chopard diamond drop earings set in white gold and diamond, my favorite.
 
Actress Sandra Bullock looked stunning in a navy Alexander McQueen Gown.

NYFW14 LOVE by Diego Binetti Show
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
"The Love by Diego Binetti FW14 has a spirit that is Nomadic with a city-slicker vibe...Love collection is unapologetically street-inspired with a sophisticated bohemian flair," the fashion designer Diego Binetti expressed.
 
For his fall 2014 Love collection, Binetti was inspired by a woman’s eclectic taste in fashion after traveling the globe. The Binetti woman has a flavor for the luxury of life or as the Italian say "La Dolca Vita" which means the sweet life and a sense of adventure which is made evident in this precise collection. She is a sophisticated world traveler and is influenced by many lands and culture.
 
Many of  his influences included: American Western/Cowboy to Native American/tribal images to some bohemian 70s influences to jetsetter chic. Binetti’s mix of silhouettes, fabrics and textures reminded me of retro Missoni and Cavalli but in a more modern twist creating his own label and style.

Erin Fetherston Fall 2014
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Erin Fetherston Fall 2014 Collection was inspired by the nostalgic period when debutantes went to Charm School. The whole appeal of the show was "Charmed, I'm Sure." And charming it most definately was. When I was a teenager the Barbizon Hotel was where affluent young ladies attended before they went into business or married a millionnaire, You know that Upper East Side female residence hall where Grace Kelly, Sylvia Plath, Joan Didion, and Cybill Shepherd all boarded at one time or another in the middle of the last century right around the time I was thinking about getting into show business.
 
Ms. Fetherston showcased her collection of retro early sixty's inspired garments and dresses that offered a mod twist on how she would like young girls to dress for an evening out on on the town  in Manhattan, Paris and London.
 
Fetherston's models stood and sat together on risers in an unexpectedly elegant little room at the W Hotel in Union Square offering cocktails and champagne to her fasuion audience.  One show stopper in the collection was a beautiful floral appliqué gown with a ball skirt and a curved crop top,  "I wanted to show it in a tableau format so that you could see all the layers," revealed Erin Fetherston.

Lee Jean Youn Fall 2014
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Designer Lee Jean Youn being launched his artistic whimsical and  women’s ready-to-wear collection in New York for Fall 2014 at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week on February 7th.

Phoebe Philo is currently behind the collections most closely resembling the intersection of comfort and innovation that today's modern woman wants.  Youn’s playful artistic creations are an inspiraton to women who dare to be different from the norm and his creations embrace all that desire to be individual. 

As we all know Fashion has declined from being artistic and more conventional so it was a pleasure and refreshing to see this young brilliant designer create a more challenging collection. There was also plenty of headwear which I feel that every woman should complete an ensemble with a hair or head adornment.

Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear
Tadashi Shoji

Fall Tadashi Shoji inspiration was Moorish architecture, which Shoji showcased through expert fabric cutting and detail embroidery.
"For the past couple of years, I've been moving west to east. Now, I'm going from Africa to Europe," revealed Designer Tadashi Shoji.
The runway show closed with a series of velvet cocktail dresses and gowns with distinct seaming—were the real dazzlers.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Tome Fall 2014
 
 
The dynamic duo of Tome‘s Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin launched their brand after waiting 13 years after graduating from design school to establish their own label
It was the designers’ first ever runway show. Of their decision to make the switch from presentations: “It was time, no?” quipped Lobo. And the collection was deserving of the more grown-up show format. They experimented with new, elevated materials including Blackglama mink, Swarovski crystal, jacquard and double-face wool, which moved the designers into a higher price point. “The collection is more expensive this season. Literally and figuratively, he explained.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Desigual Fall 2014
 
Spanish house Desigual presented a a flirtatious collection of ensembles for Fall/Winter 2014, but the highlight of the runway show had to be its approach to moving the models in a playful way down the runway.

Models were encouraged to show emotion passing high fives and blow kisses to photographers to support the theme La vida es chula which means "Life is cool."
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Todd Snyder Fall 2014
 
The very cool inspiration for Todd Snyder’s fall 2014 collection was in mod theme. “I was looking at old photos of the Stones and Bowie from the early sixties and they reminded me of Quadrophenia. I have always loved blurring the lines between rebellious youth and sartorial tradition, so it was perfect,” revealed Snyder. “I wanted to modernize it with active elements. For example, taking a traditional tailored fabric and bonding it to a weatherproof membrane to create a technical fabric that repels rain.”

My last show of the evening on the first day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week was the The Heart Truth Red Dress Collection on Thursday February 6th at The Theater at Lincoln Center in New York City.
 
The annual Go Red for Women / The Heart Truth Red Dress Collection fashion show raises awareness for women’s heart health.

The American Heart Association’s event — kicked off with heart truth speech by Star Jones, who herself underwent open-heart surgery in 2011 and admitted how terrified she was.
 
After the show I had the pleasure of interviewing TV Realty Star Husband Greg Leakes of NeNe Leakes and Realty TV Star Cynthia Bailey from "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."  Watch my interview above to hear what they have to say.
