Fall Trends: Ruffle Dresses

The leaves have begun to turn various shades of russet, marigolds, and copper. Falling softly to the ground in silent homage to the snow that is soon to follow. It is Fall’s very own splendidly designed calling card, and a sign that change is the air accompanied by the smell of pumpkin spice. Soon we shall all begin digging in…

Fall Trends: The Tartan Trend is Back

When I think of the tartan trend, I immediately think of Scottish Kilts or the heavy wool blankets that we used to have growing up. Tartan, or ‘plaid’ as some people call it, originally was made of only wool. However, with growing popularity in the print itself, it is now also made in many other materials. The Dress Act of…

Fall Trends: The Velvet Underground

With its chic look, and simple elegance, it is without a doubt that velvet creates a sense of elegance that no fabric can. Whether it is a dress, on shoes, a handbag, or even a sofa, velvet has reinvented itself again and again over the years. What originated as a fabric for the wealthy, who used velvet in their outfits…

Fall Trends: Dress Your Neck

What started in the 1970’s as a trend for the women trying to add extra detail and accessory to their looks, has now reinvented itself and become a look of its own. ‘Dressing your neck’, or wearing a long thin scarf wrapped once around your neck, allows women to dress up their outfit with one simple step. In addition, these…

Menswear Spring Summer 2017

I never imagined what a menswear fashion show would be like. When thinking of fashion shows, the glitz and glamour of the famous women supermodels would always pop into my head. Little did I know menswear fashion week is just as important to the fashion industry. From the abstract collections to the classic pieces we know and love from our…

Daniele Calcaterra  Wearing Dress Daniele Calcaterra  Shoes Azzedine Alaia  Bag Giancarlo Petriglia I see my future style, future meaning when I’m 50 and older, copying as it is Marta Marzotto‘s long floating dresses with a colorful kimono thrown over. The first thing to be done is ditching the heels and wearing Roger Vivier flats in every color. The second step would…

Milan Menswear Spring Summer 2016

Fashion week is not exactly as it is portrayed in the movies. People are gathered everywhere, traffic is stopped within a mile of the show, and it is almost impossible to capture perfect images of the models racing down the runway in the blaring lights. However, every bit of the chaos is also what makes it so magical. As each…

MAC Perspectives at AW15 Milan Fashion Week

During this Milan Fashion Week I collaborated with MAC Cosmetics who followed my around the  runway shows to get a perspective on the Autumn Winter 2015 collections. A journey discovering what is beauty in these times. Times when we are overwhelmed by so many images sending us different messages on what we should look like, what we should wear and…

Just Cavalli Fall Winter 2015 2016 – Milan Fashion Week

Just Cavalli Fall Winter 2015 2016 I was overwhelmed by the prints, patterns and textures of the Just Cavalli Fall Winter 2015 2016 collection. Roberto Cavalli is bringing the 70s back, but bolder, more lavish and full of details. Surprisingly there was no sight of the signature animal prints and I think it was about time. Why limit creativity to…
