Vogue Runway Retreat at New York Fashion Week Spring 2015

The lounges during Fashion Week can be fun and relaxing, yet the Vogue Runway Retreat was ultra chic. From hair stylists, to makeup artists using Urban Decay, you could get pampered like a celeb in between shows. Each guest received a gorgeous Brahmin leather cuff and a pair of Toms shoes that was specially made for the Runway Retreat. The champagne and small bites made for an all around great lounge to stop by for some downtime.

Brandon Sun Spring / Summer 2015 at New York Fashion Week

Brandon Sun Spring / Summer 2015 is inspired by shape and color viewed through the lens of De Stijl masters such as Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg then deconstructed and abstracted through the ideologies of Cubist artists. 

Check out my interview with Brandon Sun as he walks me through his collection, filled with color blocking, floral jacquard, swarovski crystal embellishments, and gorgeous fox pieces.

Luis Antonio Spring 2015 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Puerto Rican designer Luis Antonio made his debut at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with his Spring 2015 Maritime collection. The cohesive looks were filled with vibrant abstract and nautical rope prints. From tailored waistlines to feminine, flowing dresses and gowns, the collection is filled with lace, silk, chiffon and tulle pieces that can be worn during the day, at the office or in the evening. Since there are a variety of different hemlines, the dresses and separates work for different body types and sizes. 

It's hard to pick favorite looks out of this collection - it was just that amazing and one of the standout runway shows this season.
