Fashion Week Roundup- Best of New York, Spring 2011

Naveed Hussain has been taking a breathe and pondering New York Fashion Week- not as piece by piece show, but what stood out above the NYFW fray and complexities of the week. — S.H.We’ve been doing a lot of whining at the pace and scale of fashion in this day and age of globalism and an unsteady economy.Fashion today has become a world-wide beast, it’s everywhere, and isn’t that a good thing? Shouldn’t this mean we are all sitting at home with a closet full of the best we can buy? Okay well, that is possible, but we think it’s coming at a great cost in the long run.Most importantly, there is too much fashion too fast.Fashion is now rotating on a two month scale and frankly, by the time the items hit the shelves, we cannot even remember them. There was a time when we could spot something a mile away and tell you it’s label.Today, we look at the calenders each season and cannot pronounce half of the names on it, and now you can supposedly buy fashion on the Home Shopping Network & at J.Crew. This was not possible ten years ago and it is still not today.>> MORE: Fashion Shows and Runway Reviews

David Elfin Spring 2011 Fashion Show, New York and Madrid is Crisp, Clean and Modern

Davidelfin cuts a mean pattern…And sticks to his guns too! The Spanish designer who shows both at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York and then at Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week is true to his architectural and somewhat austere design aesthetic. Davidelfin’s fine modern classic tailoring is best appreciated up close.Particularly in New York, where floaty fabrics and sandy colors reigned supreme, the Davidelfin spring collection was a jolt in the arm for the woman who just wanted to stick to her 90′s minimalist guns or whatever you want to call someone who prefers her clothing lean, clean, and mean.>> MORE: Fashion Shows and Runway ReviewsOne of my favorite dresses was the black gown pictured above and below at both the New York and Madrid show. The well-placed side cut-out hallmarked the geometic feel of the collection, yet the flowing skirt added the right touch of femininity and figure-flattering wearability that was also edgy and timelessly modern.

Isaac Mizrahi- Spring 11 Fashion Show, Enough about Trends, Lets be Pretty

Every once in a while we need to cleanse our palette of trends and unneccessary froufrou and get back down to what a woman really wants to be when she gets dressed. For most of us over the age of 20ish, it’s simply to look pretty in a way without unneccessary artifice or pretention.Pretty doesn’t mean boring or dated. It means that you are in control of your look and want ot look stunning for yourself in a timeless and ageless way in clothing that is designed with YOU the woman in mind.>> SEE ISAAC MIZRAHI FASHION SHOW PHOTOS- COMPLETE SPRING COLLECTIONThe Isaac Mizrahi spring 2011 collection called “IM Xerox” delivered just that- look after look of simply stunning dresses that don’t wear the wearer but let her shine!My favorite being the short black beaded dress, pictured right. What appears in a photograph to be rather simple LBD, on the runway, in real life is a magnificinetly constructed garment with just the right amount of jet glimmer stones that increase in size as they aproach the perfectly suited knee-length hemline. It’s a dress that will surely become a go-to piece in your closet for seasons to come and will always look right on the money.>> MORE: Fashion Shows and Runway Reviews

Donna Karan- Spring 2011 Lighter, Softer and Very Beautiful

Most hair stylists will tell you that at a certain age we look better with softer edges and a lighter color. Well, Donna Karan is celebrating her 25th Anniversary in fashion this year and she has all but softened and lightened the look for Spring 2011.>> SEE DONNA KARAN FASHION SHOW PHOTOS- COMPLETE SPRING COLLECTIONOnce the almost shock of the all sand color palette passed, it was clear that the hallmarks of an urban wardrobe were still present, but this time the city looks were meant to travel to a more relaxed place and time.The “Raw Romance” collection may indeed be lighter and more dreamy than previous Karan collections but in no way does it lack the customary expert drape and flattering proportion that is unmistakably “Donna,” so much so that a diehard black wearer may actually consider a paler, gentler look for spring. >> MORE: Fashion Shows and Runway Reviews
