New York Fashion Week AW15; Best of the Best

Glitz and glam + New York  go together like peanut butter and jelly but the former combination is definitely 1000 times better for me personally. New York Fashion Week AW15 did not disappoint and glam was taken to the extreme with excesses of sequins, feathers and luxurious fabrics. Some ingenious designers managed to infuse some quirkiness within their bold glamourous pieces and as I think more about NYFW I consider it to be the more wearable fashion week with something to suit everyone from the most timid person to the more eccentric.

Zac Posen started with understated chic leading onto full blown glam. My fave model Maria Borges did her thing strutting next to the Naomi Campbell.

The award for quirky factor goes to Rosie Assoulin who I forever love for incorporating an afro into a high fashion showcase (its probably been done before but is rare). I’m fascinated by her bold sculptured shapes which are oddly very feminine and flattering.

Milly also had an interesting mix of exaggerated shapes, bold colours but there was also a simplicity about the collection which incorporated more classic with slightly edgier designs.

The floaty fabrics with delicate floral prints of Lela Rose’s collection made me feel serene and at peace with the world. Who said fashion is frivolous!

Words can’t quite express how much I loved everything about  Naeem Khan’s collection from the colour palette to every last detail on the extravagant ball gowns. This is glamour at its finest.

I had to give a shout out to one of my fave Brit fashion designers doing her thing in NYC, Jenny Packham (Victoria Beckham can’t get all the glory). Not that Jenny Packham needs much help – she’s only dressed the likes of royalty, with Kate Middleton being a fan. This collection proved that she is without a doubt a designer fit to dress princesses as the level  of detail in the embroidery on her gowns was mesmerizing.
