Fab Fashion Blogs Weekly: New York Fashion Week

NY Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs

On Monday Marc Jacobs rolled out the shockingly 70s-green carpet at his Spring 2007 runway show for New York Fashion Week. The colorful rugs were a great backdrop for the neutral-heavy and gold-tinged line, giving the show a sort of Epcot Center vibe, while the clothes veered between trendy and totally theoretical. There were plenty of notable looks, including cool color combinations like pale yellow and dark gray, surprisingly attractive handbags, and unstructured multi-tiered dresses, as well as big bold prints combined in unfortunate ways. read more

Cobalt Blue, Emerging Trend

My favourite shade of blue is cobalt so I love the fact it was all over the runways this season. Of course only time will tell whether or not it will be the red and grey of spring/summer but here’s hoping.

Spring 2007 Fashion Week Notebook | Baby Phat

Key Takeaways:
Funky layering with a liberal sprinkle of vamp. We saw many separately wearable pieces but no sense of cohesion within the line. Detailing ranged from cowl to circle-cut necklines and tweeds mixed with opulent satins. Swimsuits are featured as summer-wear with short kimono sleeve coverings. Suit sets mirror the kimono detailing, while dresses feature short flowy tails. read more

Anyone else out there lovin' Fashion Week? While I like looking at runway shots to see what kinds of trends will be out in upcoming seasons, I also like to see what trends will still be in so I can reuse the previous season's looks. read more

FASHIONWEEK Spring 2007: Calling Elegant Red Carpet Goddesses, Monique Lhuillier is Old World Glamour Central

Dark outside and a sea of black dresses inside can make even the most festive parties and events feel rather grim at times. Thankfully Lhuillier came up with equally gorgeous & appropriate floor-sweeping columns in a delicious palette of cocoa, loden/olive, burgundy, cream, sage, and dark brown. Unlike many spring collections, prints were conspicuously absent. Waists were defined with a belt-like strip of pale brown embellished with a row of chunky stones. Complete with Robert Palmer-girl chignons & makeup, the collection epitomized classic glamour. read more

Ultra Studs


Alexandre Herchcovitch and Diane von Furstenburg found a common interest in their vision for SS 07, with oversized metal studs showing up on both runways. Perfect for creating patterns, Furstenburg mixed her metals, while Herchcovitch stuck to just one color. read more

Fashion Week Spring '07. Ashish N Soni

So far this is one of my favorite collections. Sorry it took me so long to post. Ashish Soni was the first Indian designer to be invited to participate in Olympus Fashion week a mere year ago. His aesthetic is deeply rooted in Indian culture but one can certainly see many western influences in his designs. His show last Friday was nothing less than amazing. He has honed his skill of meshing clean lines, draping, beading, brocade with stunning fabrics like silks, linens and chiffons. read more
