As with many of you, Fall is that time of year when I’m the most excited about fashion. There’s something about the after summer ‘back to business’ mood mixed with a change to more fashion versatile temps that makes this season fresh and unique. And when I see a collection during fashion week that seems to celebrate the art of fashion as well as respects the craftsmanship of creating beautiful, wearable clothes, I’m especially excited. Andrew Gn Spring/Summer 2019 is one of these collections.
During Paris Fashion week, I attended the Redemption Show for Summer 2019. Having gone to their show last year as well ( see my post ), I was particularly excited to view their collection. Creative Director, Bebe Moratti, has a style aesthetic for the Redemption woman that is in line with my own, and based on their previous shows I expected a beautiful mix of elegance, rawness and drama.
The Tadashi Shoji Collection for Spring/Summer 2019 was about hope. From the dress styles, to the choice of fabrics to the intricate design details and, most of all, the message of hope, I loved everything about it! The collection was elegantly glamorous, pretty and magical.
Whether it’s in New York or Paris (haven’t attended LFW or MFW yet!), one of the things I love about attending fashion week is the opportunity to discover amazing new designers and brands. KÛR by Kasuni Rathnsauriya is one of these brands.
During NYFW this past week, I attended the KÛR show for Spring Summer ’19. Founded in 2009, this clothing line is not new but was new to me. For this season, the collection, referred to as “Compact Traveller”, represented a blend of professional and off-duty looks. Per the show notes, “From office to urban adventures, this is the ‘new way she travels’.”
The end of summer always comes faster than I want it to and this summer is no exception! There are still lots of things on my to-do list including some things that were purely for entertainment like taking the time to enjoy NYC. If you’re from the area or familiar with NYC, then you know that summer is a weird time here. Compared to the rest of the year things actually seem to slow down (just a little at least) as many of its residents as well as regular population take off for long weekends to the beach and other vacay destinations. I, on the other hand, love to take advantage of this time to appreciate the city when the mood is a little more relaxed. Also helps to be free of all the layers required during the cold weather seasons… 😉
Fortunately, we still have a few weeks left of summer weather. So if you’re in the area, here are my fave things to do in NYC right now.
