New York Fashion Week 2013

Czar by Cesar Galindo

Once again I haven’t the privilege of attending New York Fashion Week or NYFW. I guess this is good because I have been in New York at the end of January, beginning of February. It was cold and snowing which didn’t appeal to the California girl in me. I have to truthfully say it was one of the coldest times in my life and I don’t like being cold. Since NYFW was literally buried in snow it would be safe to say everyone experienced some weather. This would be the only thing that would make me glad to not attend. Not attending is a bummer.

 Diane Von Furstenberg

This makes my perusal of gallery photos courtesy of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week’s website both fun and warm. I haven’t seen any photos from one of my favorite designers, Chadwick Bell but I will keep looking. There have been some really beautiful designs strutting down the runway. Czar by Cesar Galindo had stunning designs with simple lines and excellent flow. I love the black leggings with the blouson top. To me it’s tight and loose in all the right places.

Another fabulous designer with staying power is Diane Von Furstenberg. She has awesome dresses, as usual, and her use of color is outstanding. Her palette stayed within the colors we would all expect to see for fall. Beautiful russet, oranges and browns with splashes of blue and fuchsia, the designs are feminine and creative. These are designs that can be worn by real women, not just Lady Gaga.


Last but not least was DKNY. I love the minimalist style and basic colors. Black, tan and white with an animal print thrown in for interest are some of my favorites. Once again these are clothes for real women. I will take these ideas and try and assemble outfits in a similar style. The short bomber jacket over a slim longer jacket and slim pants look comfortable, warm and stylish. The use of color blocking in wonderful and the colors are placed perfectly for a slimming effect. Overall I’d have to say that NYFW has turned out some beautiful clothes, as usual.
