We approach one of a fashionistas most highly anticipated times of the year. A time when designers showcase their months of dedicated work, their vision, inspiration, and analysis of what is to come to the future of fashion. As a stylist my sole duty is to interpret the narratives set by designers and set the trends that soon will follow.

For those who are not veterans of Fashion Week it is proper etiquette if attending the show to come dressed wearing a previous piece from the designer. Some come in full looks whereas others come with a piece of the collection which is appropriate if you are not seated in the first row.

Last NYFW, S/S 2017 which took place Fall 2016. I styled my client Jessica Lowndes. As I glance at the photos I get an overwhelming sense of nostalgia for the Fall trends which I carefully wove together seamlessly in a most cohesive subtle manner. Never too loud or too obvious. Appropriate for influencing streetwear but never costumey.  The looks convey a feminine strong woman who isn't afraid to take risks. A 90's presence which was my clients formative adolescent years where she was much inspired by Britney Spears. The femininity is showcased through floral dresses and at times I slightly hardened them with Zana Bayne harnesses. Velvet and lace textures are woven through the looks taken from Victorian times which was another huge Fall trend.  I am not a believer in trends as much as I believe in the holistic approach to who we were is who we arrive to be. As well as taking into account ones greatest assets and showcasing them. Leaving imagination to work its magic. Again, it is the combination of how we interpret these pieces from runway to create a story of who we are and where we arrived from.

I greatly anticipate what the designers have in store for us this week!

Fashionably,

The Monochromatic Jumpsuit lengthened the figure. The cut outs highlight and cinch her Victorian Era tiny waist. The Eddie Borgo Choker in silver is subtle and doesn't overpower the look.

Floral Dress is colorful, feminine and playful. The Victorian lace full body suit strengthens the look and makes the spring dress fall appropriate. The harness adds a subtle edge to the lady like ensemble.

Sheer dresses have been a strong trend for the past few season. Loved this simple yet strong look where less is more.

Cushnie Et Ochs
Look 4: Cushnie knit dress, Metallic Eddie Borgo Clutch, Donald J Pliner Calfhair & Patent leather Oxford shoes

I loved this androgynous look on Jess! We usually don't see this subtle masculine side to her. A little power shoe for the streets of NYC with class act. This shoe commands respect and acknowledgement. I personally own this shoe and it has been a staple for me this season. P.S. They are 40% off now!

Nicole Miller
Look 5: Floral Nicole Miller Dress, Zana Bayne Harness, Alexandra Clancy Calfhair envelope bag, Donald J Pliner heeled suede booties, Marie Saint Pierre Neoprene Flower (in her hair)

This look was a fun play on textures from leather harness, calf hair bag, suede booties, neoprene hair accessory all on a Floral print canvas (dress).

Veronica Beard Presentation
Look 6: Veronica Beard Double Breasted Jacket, Black Pencil Pants, ARSquad Choker (by me), Malone Souliers Stilettos, Alexandra Clancy Burgundy Clutch.

With the daring deep plung there was nothing better to pair it with than my exclusive chokers. I gift them to every client I style. They will soon be available exclusively on The Lowdown for purchase. The Color of the jacket brought out Jessica's eyes and the burgundy clutch complimented the jacket color.
