The New York Public Library isn’t just for book worms – it’s where Ports 1961 showcased their Spring 2012 collection. I think the library first received major fashion cred thanks to Sex and the City. Before I dish on the backstage beauty I wanted to say thank you to Jeannine for letting be in her shoes for a week! It was so great being a part of SS 2012 NYFW and most of all being able to share my experiences with you!
It was a nice change of pace from the NYFW headquarters at Lincoln Center to check out a new venue – Pier 94. After taking a peek at the Diesel Black Gold Spring 2012 collection it was evident that the ginormous warehouse was the perfect venue for their show. The clothes had a utilitarian feel with a heavy emphasis on metallics. In contrast, the hair and makeup with loose ponytails and fresh faces hinted at a sexy beach vibe.
Bright colors mixed with pastels and eclectic hairstyles were part of the beauty scene for Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet‘s Spring 2012 collection. The theme: walking through a secret garden during the 60′s.
I was lucky enough to check out the Spring 2012 collection of Carlos Miele which had long flowy dresses, vibrant prints and bold gold accents. Miele wanted to create an artificial paradise filled with fluid lines and sculptural forms.
Before we get started I wanted to take a moment to thank the NYPD and FDNY as they are the true heros and that we will never forget 9/11. With that being said, the L.A.M.B. collection was dedicated to the people of New York on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11.
