NYFW: Tadashi Shoji and Desigual

“Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future… this is known as Fashion Week.” –Carrie Bradshaw

Finally, after all of the years of watching/keeping up with NYFW online I have finally made my way to Lincoln Center. Every woman dreams of this moment and it’s a beautiful feeling to experience the madness and excitement of NYFW. The fashion editors at Women’s Health were kind enough to allow myself and another assistant go to the Tadashi Shoji and Desigual shows to represent the magazine.

IMG_1985The first show I attended was Tadashi Shoji. While entering the venue I was beyond excited to finally be in Lincoln Center during the most wonderful time of the year. I was even more excited when I found out I was sitting in the second row. While I was waiting for the show to start, I noticed June Ambrose and Jay Manuel sitting across from me. Anyway, the spring 15 collected started in Ca’ d’Oro, Venice, and this gorgeous place inspired Shoji for the collection. In the collection there was close attention to intricate detailing, which was paired with transparencies. There was mesh, tulle, multi-colored jewels, structured dresses that were airy and effortless. Beautiful pastels of jade, pink, and blue were incorporated in layers, along with ivory and navy. This collection was truly beautiful and breathtaking. I can already tell many celebs will be wearing these amazing pieces on the red carpet.

Here are some photos from the show:

IMG_2141The next show I attended was Desigual. This show was completely different from the first and I loved it! It was upbeat with beautiful colors and patterns. The designs were out of my comfort zone, but it was awesome to be there.  Adriana Lima opened and closed the show, so we already knew it was going to be phenomenal. The collection was inspired by natures florals and fauna. There were tons of Mediterranean and South American patterns that were being used throughout the collection. I cannot wait to see this collection being incorporated into everyday looks.

 

Here are some photos from the show:

After many months of planning, on November 13th, the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was taped. Women and girls around the world all have the dream of attending or walking in this amazing show. Luckily to fulfill these dreams we can tune in every year to admire these lucky women. Each and every year we all put ourselves in this awkward position, we drool at how beautiful these models are and self loathe while scarfing down junk food. Yet every year we all tune in faithfully.

At 8 p.m. sharp our favorite models, Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Cara Delevigne, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Candace Swanepoel, hit the runway. The beautiful models pranced down the runway rocking 67 different outfits and 28 pairs of wings. This year, the guest performers were Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World, and Neon Jungle.

This year’s show was a mix of London inspired looks, white, fur, glitter, and black sexy lingerie. Unlike other fashion shows the vibe behind the scenes were fun and playful. All though out the prep the models shared fun and quirky photos on Instagram. All of these gorgeous photos and videos from the models, fashion bloggers, and other important people really made us wish we were there.
