It's Show Time.

I feel so lucky to say I'm attending shows at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week another year. Each February my mom and I jet off to New York, completely indulge in Fashion Week and make memories to last a lifetime. Here are some of the amazing designers I am fortunate to be sitting in at Lincoln Center.

{The ever so elegant, Carolina Herrera}

“I love the idea of elegance and intricacy, but whether it is in a piece of clothing or a fragrance, the intricacy must appear as simplicity. I think that standard has served me well; women seem to love my clothes. I am extremely grateful for the success that they have given me.”
- Carolina Herrera

His designs transcend the influences of his Brazilian roots reconstructing them for new audiences. The designer also distills a variety of urban environments, drawing inspiration from very distinct groups of women: cosmopolitan, sophisticated and independent - becoming clearer that life's frontiers are imaginary.

{Reem Acra}

Reem Acra’s designs epitomize global glamour by offering women her innate fashion sense, European style and understanding of what looks and feels beautiful. Interlaced with her sense of luxury, her regal designs are developed with a modern aesthetic. The ready-to-wear and bridal collections evoke an ethereal quality, which appeals to a discerning clientele including personalities, royalty, and style setting women from all corners of the world.

{Cartwheel Queen, Betsey Johnson}

 “If Betsey Johnson didn’t exist, we would have to invent her, simply to remind ourselves that fashion can be fun. She’s the original wild child and set to paint the town pink!” - unknown reporter

{The Freshman of NYFW, Prete & Bruno}

"Our collection is for] a woman who wants to highlight her femininity without falling into banality. Silhouettes evoke the great refined women of the past...The silence, the abstract purity of form enriched with refined details. Tradition filtered by design and sometimes renewed by a sort of provocative copy and paste. The traditional elegance inspires elegance and sensuality: a sort of need to return to the origins of fashion. The colors of this season: black carefully matched to green and gold."
