NYFW in a NEW YORK MINUTE: Marlon Gobel SS2014

"We Built This City"

The theme of the Marlon Gobel collection is the "cowboys of the sky", the ironworkers of the 20s where this type of work brought brave young men from Europe and Canada to New York, the capital of skyscrapers, to "build this city". Documented by photographer Lewis Hine in his series "men at work" he showcases men laboring on iron beams up in the air, for the construction of the Empire State building in 1930. 

Such is the inspiration behind Marlon Gobel's Spring/Summer collection, and what better location to show than at NYC's Park Avenue Armory under an ironwork canopy?

I loved all the aeronylon blazers...I think I may have to borrow from the boys for this one...

Between shows, the E!Online Fashion Police film their Style Network segments and it's nice to catch a glimpse of Joan Rivers. And once you do, you want to see all of them!

I also loved seeing ANTM Cycle 18 Winner Sophie Sumner, how adorable is she?


NYFW Brandon Sun FW 2013

Last year at Brandon Sun's Spring presentation, I fell in love with all of the soft furs and flowy chiffon in greys and white.

This season, I was unable to attend due to the weather, but thanks to Anjali and Rohina, the shows were covered for Hogger & Co.

Here's Rohina's take on Brandon Sun's FW 2013 Collection:

Just got back from an amazing short trip to NYC. The show started really early in the morning which was perfect since I am a morning person. Got ready and took a New York cab to the Lincoln center. It was really nice to see the Mercedes Benz Fashion week sign. Since it was my first fashion show, I was overly excited. Thanks to Hogger & Co. we were able to attend the Brandon Sun presentation. As we entered the room the models were standing like statues. It was breathtaking. It was like an art museum. The press was surrounding the artwork, snapping away. All the pieces were on the darker scale; shades of grays, dark blues, dark green and black with touches of white. Uses of fur and velvet, silks and leather. Such an amazing and beautiful presentation.

Thanks Rohina!


NYFW Herve Leger FW 2013

I was so excited to have been invited to shoot backstage and runway at Herve Leger this season, however I was prevented from going to NYC because of THIS, so Anjali was gracious enough to cover backstage and runway for me, last minute! Thanks girl :)

It looked like a GORGEOUS SHOW with many celeb sighted with designers Max Azria and Lubov Azria including Petra Nemcova, Coco Rocha, Miss USA and Russell Simmons!

Here's what Anjali thought of the show:

PeTA beware, fur is definitely back in 2013.  After seeing a few fashion shows for FW 2013, one trend I definitely see is bold leather and fur.  Herve Leger's futuristic FW collection seems what a retro collection in the year 2030 would look like.  Modern materials with intricate embroidery and different prints in body hugging cuts seem to reign supreme. The leather cutouts are layered on top of fine knits and add a textural appealing quality. Black caps are used as accessories to give some of the fine quality garments a harder edge. In this collection, the attention is definitely in the details.

Thanks again Anjali! :)


NYFW Candela FW 2013 RTW

Candela's FW 2013 RTW presentation took place recently, and Anjali who lives in NYC was there covering for me. We were both at the Spring presentation last year.

Here's what she said:

The themes for this collection seem to be a blend of country chic and the roaring twenties. The romantic feel of some of the designs transport me to the time of the Great Gatsby. The flapper like dresses with bugle beads and sequins are a definite hit as are the long silk gown in a perfect shade of peach with a low sequined back. The deer sweater with fur collar mixed with the finely knit cashmere lace skirt show that the two can be combined. There are juxtapositions of hard and soft mixed together as with the black leather motorcycle jackets and flowy lace sheer skirts. The presentation made me feel like I was walking through an artist's studio as models became the subject of paintings. In this case, the fashion was the muse not the models.
