Prints on prints on prints! Olivia’s bold print mixing stands out from the crowd. While we’re not seeing a huge amount of prints on the runway, the street style at Lincoln Center makes it clear that this trend is still going strong.
Thanks to the slim, classic cuts of Olivia’s separates, she’s not overwhelmed by her mix. After my grunge phase, I swore I’d never wear camo again, but Olivia makes it look chic. Maybe I need those pants after all!
One of the highlights of New York Fashion Week was the Red Dress Collection 2013. The annual celebrity runway show aims to inspire women to protect their heart health while bringing awareness to the fight against heart disease. Because it’s St. Valentine ’s Day, we invite you to join us in the celebration of the red dress, the symbol for the heart health movement. Check out some of the highlights from the show, which featured more than 15 Hollywood heavy-hitters decked out in fiery red designer duds.
Twice in one week: Ella, you’re a star! I love Ella’s simple, modern vintage approach to winter wear. It’s great to see a blogger (La Petite Anglaise) who is so committed to her personal style and not easily swayed by trends.
Her pink sweater and bag added some much-needed lightness to the dreary day.
With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we asked model Victoria Anderson to dish about what she’s planning to give her beau on Cupid’s most cuddly day of the year.
It’s the first New York Fashion Week season for Victoria, who is signed with Wilhelmina. The North Carolina-born beauty moved to the Big Apple just 2 years ago and hasn’t looked back since. We spotted the runway rookie backstage at Rebecca Minkoff doing a little knitting and immediately had to get the scoop about her artsy craft.
The Thread: Are you a designer-in-training? Victoria Anderson: I knit and crochet as a hobby. It keeps me relaxed at shows and it’s a great way to keep myself occupied in between castings and fittings. I taught myself how to do it about a year ago, watching how-to videos on YouTube.
What are you working on? Victoria: I am actually making a scarf for my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day. It’s so cold right now that I think it will be the perfect gift. I just hope I finish it in time!
Any special Valentine date night plans? Victoria: I love to cook, so I’ll probably make a special dinner for him. I’m really into baking and making pies. I do my own homemade crust—it’s so yummy.
Danielle has been making a name for herself here in NYC, thanks to her popular personal style blog (WeWoreWhat). This FIT student is sure to make it big in the industry, thanks to her strong following and web savvy. She describes her style as New York chic: a little tough but modern and sharp. Her look today is exactly that!
Not that you don’t already have ample Fashion-Week euphoria to bask in here on The Thread—but be sure to check out our male counterpart, Men’s Shop Daily, where Travis Gumbs and Joshua Kissi (pictured above, from left) of the stellar blog Street Etiquette will be covering New York Fashion Week from their own unique perspective. If you’d like to know more about the men behind the lens, check out our introduction to Street Etiquette from earlier this week.
Rebecca Taylor is taking a clean and organic approach to fall/winter ’13. Get ready for modern silhouettes, architectural embellishments, color blocking and fabric mixing. With the tone of the collection set, the New Zealand-born designer is determined to show her latest offering with just the right bevy of beauties.
Rebecca and noted casting director Piergiorgio Del Moro (left) were meticulous in their review of each model’s portfolio. British-born model Stephanie Rad (right) patiently waited her turn to present her portfolio for inspection.
Models Ranya Mordanova (left) and Dajana Antic (left) were all smiles, both relatively new faces. Ranya has been dubbed one to watch since appearing in the Givenchy fall 2009 campaign. This is Dajana’s second season at NYFW, and, despite having just flown in from Canada, she looked relaxed and refreshed.
Hailing from London, Leomie Anderson (left) made her runway debut in September 2010 at MARC BY MARC JACOBS and has since graced the pages of Vogue Italia and ID magazines. What she enjoys most about modeling is photo shoots—and she surely looks at home in front of the camera while being snapped by casting assistant Chrissie Guggemos.
Can’t wait to see which models make the cut? Stay tuned for the full runway report from Rebecca Taylor’s February 10th show at 1PM EST.
