Chanel debuted their Spring/Summer 2015 collection on a fake Parisian boulevard within Grand Palais in Paris. The show’s clothing had a 1970s vibe with the tweed pantsuits and bright colorful blouses.
It could have been a nod to the feminist movement in the seventies, since Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s creative director, ended the show with a feminist protest. Normally, I would be happy that feminism has reached a new audience but I don’t think the message was ... Read More

New York Fashion Week kicks off in two days (!!!), but it is not only for the elite, style-forward mavens of Vogue as one may think. Fashion Week is for the creative and the curious as well.
“HA!” you might be thinking. “This girl clearly has never attempted to attend a fashion week show, ever.”
And you’d be right, which is exactly why I’m not going wax poetic about the genius that is Proenza Schouler or Miu Miu ... Read More

As the lights dimmed in preparation for Rick Owens Spring/Summer 2014 presentation, photographers and editors got comfy in their front-row chairs, likely expecting yet another stream of sample-size waifs to glide in front of them. After all, fashion week is that special time of year when all of our senses are bombarded with delicate clothes draped over ethereal human hangers.
Instead, Rick Owens greeted the world with silhouettes of powerful, strong figures, ... Read More

With chic citizens and stunning innovation to spare, New York has clearly proven itself as a fashion capital. But is the city living up to its ambitious title?
Although New York’s fashion scene thrives in aesthetic value and skill, the way the industry treats its own is coming into serious question – although, thankfully, improvements seem to be underway!
Sara Ziff, former child model and founder of Model Alliance, reports that the labor ... Read More

Fashion elites clearly have a taste for the bizarre. Last week we showed you Vogue’s recent Hurricane Sandy disaster porn fashion shoot, and just yesterday the council of Fashion Designers of America upped the ridiculousness ante. In a statement for the "CFDA Health Initiative,” Diane von Furstenberg and her council cohorts outlined some New York City Fashion Week regulations, stressing that, “Health is Beauty.” Shocking absolutely no one, ...

We know, we know--if you see one more Fashion Week-related Instagram, you're gonna puke. But it's worth checking out this antidote to the NYFW blahs: Fashion Week Internationale, VICE’s documentary series devoted to exploring fashion weeks outside NYC.
Fashion Week Internationale takes us to Uzbekistan, South Korea, Jamaica, Israel, Brazil, and more to uncover what VICE calls “the freaky, the weird, the shocking, and the raunchy fashion ... Read More
If you’re in the know with the going-ons of the New York City nightlife then you’re probably familiar with DJ Venus X. Maybe you heard her DJ at Fashion Week last fall or dance your ass off at her GHE20G0TH1K parties. I personally saw the light when BUST Crafty lady Callie passed along one of DJ Venus X’s mixes.
The 25-year-old Dominican-Ecuadorian DJ from Manhattan, born Jazmin Venus Soto, first gained attention after hosting GHE20GOTH1K with ... Read More
I've thrown tons of Fashion Week street style your way, but I thought I'd come out from behind the lens and show you some of the looks I put together from that week. I'm all about fun when it comes to fashion. From pillbox hats to kitty-cat shoes, I'm not afraid to look a little kooky now and then. I also took comfort into consideration, and wore flats amid a sea of high heels. With some pep in my step and bright tights to spare, I'd say many of my looks are ... Read More
Welcome to Part Two of of my collection of looks from this season's New York Fashion Week. Fantastic street style seemed to be everywhere I turned, and I made sure to capture as much as I could. One of my favorite looks of the week (or ever) has to be this outfit on Vogue Japan's Anna Dello Russo, who never fails to bring the fashion crazy. I love it! With a bright fuschia coat and out-of-this world hat, she stood out in a sea of fashionable, yet ... Read More
It’s pretty much impossible for Rachel Antonoff to create anything less than ridiculously adorable clothing and accessories, so of course, her newest fall 2012 collection is nothing short of charming and wearable. From shiny jewels and Peter Pan collar dresses to Bye Bye Birdie sweatshirts and floral creeper shoes, there is a youthfulness to a lot of the pieces that feels both elegant and modern, but playful at the same time. You can't help but fall in ... Read More
