Diane von Furstenberg, DKNY, and Thakoon Fall 2015 Collections: Glamorama

Glamour seems to be the theme of New York Fashion Week. From oodles of sequins and sparkles to evening slink by the runway mile, vamps, vixens, and red carpet-ready femme fatales are slated to come out in droves come Fall ’15.

Prabal Gurung Fall 2015 Collection: The Heat of the Moment

Prabal Gurung Fall 2015 Collection: The Heat of the Moment

As a designer, you will for that shining moment, the one when your roar rings louder than any other. Last night produced such an occasion for Prabal Gurung.

Derek Lam Fall 2015 Collection

Derek Lam Fall 2015 Collection: The American Dream

It’s odd that our most quintessentially American brand has the name Derek Lam. Or is it? With primetime shows entitled Fresh Off the Boat, Asian-American culture is currently as American as apple pie.

Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Collection

Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Collection: Women in Uniform

I knew I was in for a real treat when I walked into the Park Avenue Armory, the long-time site of Marc Jacobs shows, and surveyed the scene: glowing pink gravel, a Pepto-Bismol tornado-dropped pink house inspired by The Wizard of Oz (a film Marc happens to love), shocking pink, pink, pink!

Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2015 Collection

Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2015 Collection: The Simple Life

I’m going to make a grand statement, without a hint of hesitation: Minimalism has never looked so over-the-top, so plentiful, so generous, and well, so grand as it did bouncing off Calvin Klein’s most recent runway. As for anyone who ever said, “More is more,” you’ve never seen Calvin on a hot streak.

Ralph Lauren Spring 2015 Collection

Ralph Lauren Spring 2015 Collection: Utilitarian Euphoria

Think of all the things that come to mind when you reflect on Ralph Lauren: Buttery stretch suede pants, cinch-waist safari jackets, crisp tufts of ruffles, draped mock-turtlenecks, breezy coveralls, bejeweled statement necklaces and drop earrings, lean tunic gowns, layered tulle skirts, to name just a few.

New York Fashion Week Roundup, Part 3

New York Fashion Week Roundup, Part 3: Delpozo, Donna Karan, and Sophie Theallet

Modern but reminiscent of the past. Prim but not prissy. Crisp and clean but rich and wild. Oh, and brimming with unadulterated beauty. Delpozo is all of these things and more, and their breathtaking Spring ’15 collection brings all their trademarks of visual splendor and expert craftsmanship to new heights.

New York Fashion Week Roundup, Part 2

New York Fashion Week Roundup, Part 2: Anna Sui, Jeremy Scott, and Rodarte

I have loved Anna Sui since I was a kid in the ‘80s. At the time, there were no other Asians in fashion for me to look up to; naturally, I copied her signature bold red lipstick and her thick swipe of black eyeliner (still do!). This woman hasn’t stopped encouraging individuality and celebrity uniqueness since back then.
