NYFW: August Getty / Noon by Noor

By Nicole Clevenger

August Getty


Location: The Salon @ Lincoln Center

August Getty’s Fall runway show was one of the most powerful shows I attended at fashion week this year. The models’ outfits and stride syncopated to the crescendo of the music with each passing look. You would have never known that this was only Getty’s second time (and second collection) to be featured in this prestigious event. Celebrities like Kristin Cavallari, Lennon & Maisy, and Whoppi Goldberg came to show their support for the new designer. In fact, Kristin turned heads by wearing one of his more provocative spring 2015 pieces (as seen below. note: that is my blonde head just two rows behind her!). His fall collection can be summarized in just a few words: all black everything. Black leather, black sequins, black fur. Cut-outs were also a common theme throughout his presentation. While I wouldn’t classify this collection as “ready for everyday”, I will say that it makes a strong case that leather accents are here to stay. The woman who is bold enough to wear these fierce pieces is not to be messed with.

Noon by Noor

Confident + Chic + Charming

Location: The Salon @ Lincoln Center

Noon by Noor stole the show for me with their feminine silhouettes and effortless elegance as the models confidently walked the down the runway covered in winter roses, jeweled embellishments and floral sequins. I loved how the two Bahrain designers incorporated pops of purple and navy in the predominately grey, white, black and metallic collection. The sleek fabrics have an air of chicness about them while the lavish use of embellishments adds charm to otherwise, minimalistic patterns. The most noteworthy looks for me were the floor length, elegantly embellished evening gowns that put a modern twist on traditionally conservative styles. The woman who is confident enough to wear these strong metallics and embellishments during a more muted season, is a little more daring while at the same time still very charming – I think Olivia Palermo and Coco Rocha would agree.

To summarize the trends I see for Fall 2015: metallics, pops of color, lots of leather, sharp lines, soft textures, midi length dresses, and my personal favorite – feminine fall florals.


#NYFW – Charlotte Ronson

By: Nicole Clevenger

Location: The Pavilion @ Lincoln Center

Charlotte Ronson’s Fall collection was one of my favorite’s of the season. The reason why I love this collection so much, is because it is totally relatable and everyday wearable. I could actually see myself and many of my “yo-pro” girlfriends wearing her floral pieces to work. Her collection is “inspired by the serenity of nature coupled with an abstract urban setting”. She re-invented spring for fall by embedding heavy military green undertones into many of her pieces. I also absolutely adored the tasseled curled hair, styled by Raphaelle Saint Marshall – the loose curles flowed just as effortlessly as the silk jumpsuits themselves. This collection is for the ulta-feminine woman who wants her clothes to do all the flirting…

NYFW Day 4 || Nanette Lepore

After 4 days of amazing fashion shows, things can all start to blend together in one big {beautiful!} blur. Nanette Lepore’s Spring 2015 show was definitely one that stood out to me and was by far one of my favorites. I loved everything from the model’s messy chic top knots, the fun music, and of course, the beautiful clothes. From bright neons and silky fabrics, to flirty pleats and bold prints – this collection truly felt like an escape to a tropical island for a fun summer vacation. Here are two of my favorite looks from the collection! (Photos from wwd.com)

NYFW || Days 1 + 2

New York Fashion Week. The energy radiating from this city is one like I’ve never experienced before. Photographers, editors, creative directors, people-watchers, designers, make-up artists, writers…it’s like world’s population of creative people are currently all in one place at one time, and it’s a beautiful thing. One of my favorite things about Fashion Week so far has been studying the street style trends {details to come on that later!}. You see everything from boyfriend jeans, backwards caps, and sneakers, to Chanel handbags and Valentino dresses.

A few of you had asked about where you could get my looks from days 1 & 2 on my Instagram. I put all the links below. Enjoy!

Day 1 look: White Zebra Top from Neiman Marcus Last Call. Black pant from J. Crew. Black handbag from Neiman Marcus Last Call. Shoes (old). Similar here. Earrings – Kendra Scott from Neiman Marcus

bundle up.

I was laughing this week when I heard a New Yorker comment on the slight warm front that was breezing through the city. What?? To me, The Big Apple accompanied North Pole temps. When my face was almost too frozen to speak after walking three short blocks, I recognized bundling up was a necessity…like layers upon layers + new rules: no holes in jeans, no public exposure without a massive scarf, no texting without gloves. Oh and I needed to live in a bini (and I did).

Candela’s Fall 2013 Collection: Vintage Glamour

Shimmering beading and intricate patterns were imminent in Candela’s Fall 2013 presentation. Gabriela Perezutti took us on a journey in tones of soft layering, cosy add-ons and glistening detail. Candela’s collection took cues from vintage inspired looks of the past. Models looked relaxed as they donned this lounge-friendly collection that translates from the runway to reality in a low-key style. With high-glam bead work and leisure worthy pieces Candela’s presentation was every girls dream closet.
