In A New York Minute...Or Ten...! (Part One)

Well it's all been a bit manic in the fashion world in the last few weeks and it's only going to continue for the next couple or so as Milan and Paris are just around the corner!

I thought I would try and give you my belated NYFW round up, but in two parts. Little bit tricky when there is soooo much to talk about but I will try and keep it as short and sweet as possible! to do this, where to start?! There are just too many great shows to talk about!
There are my usual favourites who did NOT disappoint by any means; Proenza Schouler, Helmut Lang, 3.1 Philip Lim, Oscar De La Renta, Marchesa, Rag and Bone, Doo Ri, Thom Browne and Alexander Wang (to be discussed in Part Two!)

Then there were the exciting new-comers such as Creatures of the Wind. Fellow bloggers went blog crazzzy over this new brand and when you look carefully through the catwalk show, you can see why. In my opinion it was a pretty playful collection but with a suave and edgy, country-like, tailored twist! Although on first glance you might be wary of its' avant-garde qualities, at a closer look it is a collection that is definitely wearable. They may not be 'safe' options in your wardrobe (i.e check out the red and black PVC dress!!) but they will definitely be fun and inspiring pieces to perk up those lacklustre wintery days!
My favourite pieces from the show had to be the cropped mint green (yes mint green is still around!) wide-legged trousers, the striped mohair jumpers and the incredible tailored jackets!
This creative Canadian duo bought something clever and diverse to New York Fashion week. It is a label that we should definitely keep our eyes on and I look forward to seeing their next deliveries at Dover Street!
