Mary Katrantzou

My brain can still hardly process the brilliant collection of Mary Katrantzou for Spring 2011. Pure genius! I don't want to say that I'm disappointed in New York Fashion Week, but when placed against London's Fashion Week, the differences are almost too obvious not to state. London is just so progressive..and daring! 

For example,  Mary Katrantzou's collection- yes, digital prints have been done before, but she pulls it off with such conceptual and artistic flourish. Katrantzou's designs seem to blend together modern day minimalism while referencing Neoclassical architecture. What makes the collection even better is that it evolves within itself.

Geometry, Structure, Minimalism

What a breathtaking collection at Threeasfour. I love when designers are willing to move fashion forward and ignore all the bullshit behind forecasting, which results in designers all doing the same thing. I'm tired of draping and loosely hung clothing. I'm reading for structure again
3.1 Phillip Lim was quite magnificent as well. The clothes are much more wearable, somewhat following the lady-like trend, yet are conceptual. There was a lot of sheer fabrics, layering, and once again- structure. It almost seemed like a nod towards what Nicolas Ghesquiere is doing at Balenciaga. (All photos taken from

Fashion's Night Out- NYC

We had a great time: hamming it up outside the Comme des Garcons store, oggling people at Balenciaga, and checking out the goodies at the Collette truck parked outside of Opening Ceremony at the Ace Hotel!

Milk Studios, Fashion Week- Day 2

The photos I took of the "fashionable crowd" exiting the Costello Tagliapietro show at Milk Studios in the Meatpacking District of New York- including Julia Frakes from Bunny Bisous and Kate Lanphear of U.S. Elle. There was a point where every photo I took turned out black..or completely blurry. Haha. Most photos are also of the backs of people. Fashion photography takes courage..

New York Fashion Week- Day 2, Lincoln Center

New York Fashion Week 2010. 

I took these photos at the Lincoln Center this afternoon. It was so great seeing people dressed in all different kinds of clothing and styles. Even more interesting were all the people dying to photograph this "fashionable" crowd. Christian and I did, however, get interviewed by some British blog or website. We were previously warned- so we decided to deck out in our own "fashionable dress."
