NYFW {My Favorite Collections}

New York Fashion Week for Spring 2013 has been over for almost a week now, but I’m still eyeing the beautiful collections that graced the cat walk this season. I find myself captivated by lady like cuts, effortless fabrics, and rich ethereal colors that are “oh so” feminine. But what’s really got me going are pants!! I’m a dress and skirt kind of girl, but I’m looking forward to spring’s structured and flowy pants that make a presence as you walk by. I’ve also been drawn to darker hues of green, plum, and navy as well as stripes…which is not my typical style. Every year I look forward to my favorite designer, and was surprised to see some new favorites make my list this year. Go here to take a look at all of NYFW’s collections.

My favorite collection was Zac Posen. His collection dripped in glamour and elegance, with soft and pretty details. You can tell he was channeling the greatest fashion icons {Grace Kelly} His pieces make women look beautiful and powerful!

I was intrigued by Diane Von Furstenberg‘s brightly colored seventies inspired pants and tunics that made me feel like I was traveling the Mediterranean. I love how her simple shoes become edgier with touches of metal and chains.

The epitome of my style was shown in J. Mendel‘s range of colors from sherbets to jewel tones and sheer fabrics that scream “femininity” and “grace”. What I loved the most was that for every soft hue, he introduced a richer dramatic version of the color. Next spring, I know I’ll be channeling these looks.

If one designer can take you from soft 1950’s inspired dressed, to rich bright colors, simple lines, and edgy textured lace it would be the genius of Oscar de la Renta. His lace cutout shoes and striped gowns were my favorite!

Oh, Vera Wang you can do no wrong! Her looks are sophisticated and not overly embellished. I’m a lover of lace, and especially loved her delicate yet intricate detailing.

Marchesa have always had stunning gowns, and this year their collection has me yearning to travel to India. I’m completely mesmerized by the beading and embroidery, not to mention its wildly rich color palette
