An inside look at some of my favorite shows from #NYFW – Nicole Clevenger

I am so excited to take you into the world of fashion week where each new season, designers have an opportunity to share the way in which they’ve grown their personal style and aesthetic with the world.

Twice a year, hundreds of photographers, celebrities, bloggers, and industry geniuses come together to get a first-hand look at some of the brilliant collections and trends to come. They come to see how designers are either challenging or changing the “fashion quo” and leave inspired by the hair, the make-up, the models, and the clothes – the elements that tell story of what next season’s “woman” will embody.

Below you will get a first-hand look at some of the brilliant fall/winter collections you can expect to see later this year along with my perspective of the type of woman who will be wearing their clothes.

Rubin & Chapelle


Location: The Top of the Standard Hotel (aka: the Boom Boom Room)

Known for their light and crisp aesthetic, Sonja Rubin and Kip Chapelle debuted an elegant and angular look in what I like to call the “Great Gatsby” room at the Top of the Standard Hotel. The models were brought out before a band of photographers to show off the angular prints and asymmetric hemlines which were inspired by Scottish menswear. My favorite aspect of this collection is its surprising softness. Even though the contrast of light pinks against dark greys initially bare an edgier look, I imagine the silk fabrics lying delicately on the woman who is looking to leave a comfortable and elegant impression.

Collection Elements:

  • Colors: greys, pinks, black, mauve, sky blue:
  • Shoes: sneakers, rain boots
  • Makeup: muted neutrals, pale pink eye shadow
  • Hair: slicked side-part in a low pony-tail
