Each Fashion Week brings something fresh and exciting, but Spring/Summer ‘15 is especially thrilling for me as the new NYFW host for Phoenix Media!

The one thing you can count on for certain when Prabal Gurung unleashes a new collection? Ironically, it’s the element of surprise. With a flair for the deftly dramatic and a gutsy, excitable kind of energy that’s so unique to his vision, you can always expect the unexpected from Prabal.
Jason Wu’s Spring ’15 collection gave way to my favorite show thus far. Simply put, it was beautiful. Sans bells and whistles, no stage antics: the clean, gleaming runway let the pieces, as well as the ladies wearing them, shine as they should.
I kicked off the week with the talented Peter Som, and his subtly Pop Art-inspired Spring ’15 collection felt the perfect way to start.
