Karen Erickson & Vicki Beamon designs
Today is the last day of NYFW and I’m sure it won’t be the last word for quite some time to come. Once the dust has settled all those lucky participants will begin their discussions. What was hot, what was not, and who had the best designs and why. While the clothing designs were really what it was all about, there was very little discussion about jewelry and accessories. Just a little disappointing or I’m not following the correct media streams.
To me, accessories really make the outfit. I’m a bit of a jewelry junkie and am always looking to see how someone paired a particular style with jewelry. It doesn’t come naturally to me and I can't always figure out how pieces all work together. Which is probably why I try and watch the live feeds for runway shows; it shows you how it was supposed to look.

It is a little disheartening to see such a lack of jewelry talk from NYFW. The closest thing was an article about designers Karen Erickson and Vicki Beamon and their new collection featuring clothing that was jewelry for the body. These designers started out in jewelry and expanded to ready to wear. Now they have their own show. But there still not much information available about the jewelry that was worn at any of the shows.
I did find a small article about Michelle Pajak-Reynolds, a former teacher who was downsized and was lucky enough to attend NYFW. It was human interest stuff. Since NYFW isn’t officially over and many people continue to discuss what happened at this huge event I am holding out hope that new jewelry ideas will surface. I’ll keep goggling and searching for new information. If anyone has some good leads feel free to send me a link. Always appreciate a helping hand.
