Day 2 of Fashion Week

I saw three colorful fashion shows yesterday via Youtube's live broadcasts. Not too many people get the opportunity to actually go to New York for Fashion Week so it's a great way to be a part of the fashion biggest event of the year without the high cost.

As I said earlier, I saw three fashion shows the other day which were Rebecca Minkoff, Charlotte Ronson, and Nicole Miller and out of all of them I have to say Rebecca Minkoff was my least favorite. Overall, the collection carried a look that was sporty and androgynous, which is something I can appreciate. But toward the end of the collection, something seemed to go wrong. Spring prints such as florals were significant themes for all three collections but, in my opinion, the Rebecca Minkoff collection used it the worst way. It seemed like adding florals was an afterthought in the way the prints were used in the construction of certain ensembles. It became overkill after a while and I have to say, I was a bit disappointed. See the Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2013 Collection.

The Nicole Miller and the Charlotte Ronson collection were both very lovely collections. Nicole Miller used a floral print and a black/white geometric print in the clothes along with several other prints. To some, the collection could be perceived as overdone and confusion but to me, I completely understood it and I loved it. Certainly, some looks could have been axed but in all, the clothes were divine and when those floral and the geometric prints were combine, it created such a great balance.I particularly loved how those two prints were cut into ribbons and wrapped around the solid black dress, which you can see in the link. Overall, it was a good show and I enjoyed Nicole Miller's sense of style. See the Nicole Miller Spring 2013 Collection.

The same goes for Charlotte Ronson. Her collection used a few floral prints but it was mostly composed of pale greens, yellows, corals, and blues. I actually was surprised to see plastic being implemented into the collection in the pink, green, and blue plastic jackets, cuffs, and belts. Combined with the pale colors and the simplicity of the clothes, the plastic added a touch of whimsy that I could not help but love. The collection also featured handbags were very well done. In particular, it was a yellow tote that caught my eye. See the Charlotte Ronson Spring 2013 Collection.

Overall, yesterday was a great day for me as I watched these clothes make it down the runway.
