More pictures and videos from the front row of New York Fashion Week FW2015 Day 4

I was invited to ETXEBERRIA a/w 2015/2016 "Poet in New York" Womenswear & Menswear collection. I fall in love with the collection and show itself. Even more ETXEBERRIA had the best music accompaniment this season.

ETXEBERRIA said that his last collections were developed around the idea of the search for wide figures and volumes, with scarcely seams or pleats, and built trusting in the patterns and the dimension of the fabrics in order to solve the objects. Nevertheless, this research eventually moved him away from the classical tailoring, one of my most important models and primitive driving force of his work. For that reason, and willing to revise and coming back to these origins, the collection that designer presenting places the classical tailoring as the center and base of its development. 

The volumes find their inspiration in the English tailoring from the 1920's, especially in the night and gala garments. The Neapolitan tailoring from the 1950's plays an important role regarding the silhouettes and lengths. Among the fabrics, fundamental in his work, he used wool and felt, combined with leather and fur as usually. The felts draw references to classical fabrics such as herringbone, pin-stripe, hound's-tooth and jacquard, and combine with each other by overlapping or simple cuts, in a search of mixes that puts them out of the common contexts. Shoes and boots revive the mixes of the garments as well.

New York Fashion Week FW2015 Day 4. Part I DEREK LAM

At the 4th day of New York Fashion Week FW2015  I have been working on DEREK LAM fashion show and would like to share some of my backstage photos. Later that day I visited front rows of some Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week shows at Lincoln Center Pavilion. In this post I`ll tell you about DEREK LAM show and my look so stay tuned for ETXEBERRIA, FTL MODA, PARKCHOONMOO 

This time I created total black grunge. I had Black Skinny Ripped Jeans, Leather Boots, Flight Jacket and Black Sweatshirt with The state coat of arms of Ukraine print. I got this picture stopping by the PANDORA Jewelry booth.

Derek Lam dedicated his terrific show to a group of ladies he called his "New York heroines," actresses Diane Keaton, Mia Farrow, Dianne Wiest, and Katharine Hepburn. 
Trenches are a good place to start. Lam has made a specialty of them over his 10-year career. He imbued today's with newness by adding a hood and a generous stand-up collar, say, or by whipping them up in double-face, with a contrast color on the interior. The peacoat got a refresh, too, cut with a swingy A-line shape in deep, rich shades of leather-trimmed haircalf. An emerald green version was a real beauty. Source
I took some EXCLUSIVE backstage footage and would like to share it with you guys.
