DKNY, Spring 2012
DKNY is always a favorite, and I was thrilled when I found out I would be attending the show this season. Held at Cedar Lake, every seat was a good seat and the crowd was top notch. In a fun twist, models walked from the outside in, and the flock of paparazzi-style photographers and NYC taxis outside added to the excitement. The collection was full of floppy hats, amazing wedges, bright prints, and perfectly flowing dresses. It was the epitome of the DKNY girl, and a lovely way to look forward to spring.

Timo Weiland, Spring 2012
This season marked Timo Weiland’s first ever runway show, and it did not disappoint. Timo and Alan Eckstein put together an A+ collection full of their signature prints, bright colors, and downtown cool aesthetic. For the girls, backwards baseball caps complemented clompy flatform shoes and sweet dresses, and the men were anything but boring in floral anoraks and printed shorts. Also thrown into the mix were a slew of chic collaborations, including jewelry by Subversive and sunglasses by Warby Parker. With a solid collection like this and a spot in the next generation of the CFDA Incubator Program, these boys are definitely ones to watch.

Charlotte Ronson, Spring 2012
A perennial fave! Obsessed with the top print of the third look. And who else can make overalls seem like such a wardrobe necessity?

Christian Siriano, Spring 2012
When Tumblr gave us our schedules for the week, I was very happy to see Christian Siriano’s name. After rooting for him during his season of Project Runway, it’s been nice to see him succeed in the real world. While his clothes have always been pretty, I wanted more from him. The collections needed refinement and an overall focus on what he is great at: creating dramatic clothing that is in turn mature and ladylike. There was always one too many fabrics, one too many colors, or one too many details. This season Christian found his focus. Huge ball gown skirts were paired with simple tees and sunglasses to create casual but incredibly chic ensembles. The color palette of neutrals and bright citrus neons was refreshing and cheerful, and the use of heavily shagged feathers and layered chiffon was surprisingly light and airy. With the sharp eye of stylist Danielle Nachmani and a matured sense of design, Christian created a beautiful spring collection, and I can’t wait to see how else he grows in the future.

Prabal Gurung, Spring 2012
The genius of Prabal Gurung has been written about everywhere, so I’m just going to let the clothes do the talking. But in case you forgot: this man is beyond talented. The collection is space-age meets Balenciaga meets Star Wars meets rorschach blots. I mean really. He can do no wrong. 
For a fun look behind the scenes of the show, check out the lovely Jamie Beck’s photos on her blog, From Me To You.

Memory Lane

September Fashion Week: that wonderful time of year when the entire fashion community descends on New York City and fills our Instagram feeds with blurry runway photos and paparazzi shots of Anna Dello Russo, all without the burden of coats and slush. We live for it, tweet about it, and pray to the street style gods that we will be photographed during it. For so many years it meant furiously refreshing Style.com at all hours of the day to see the latest shows, but last year was a little different. One year ago, I was checking into the Hudson Hotel as part of the Tumblr 20. What began as a terrifyingly exhilarating introduction to the blogging community ended up being the launch into one of the busiest and most exciting years of my life. Since that fateful September day in 2011, I have traveled to London for fashion week, attended the shows of some of my idols, filmed a few videos, graduated college, landed my first grown-up job, made hundreds of new collages, attended an uncountable amount of Pizza Jams, and made a lot of wonderful new friends. I’m reminded every day how lucky I am to count talents like Holly, Noah, Liam, John, Sara, ChuckRich, and many others as friends, collaborators, and cohorts in this strange Internet world. This week I’m happily back to checking Style.com in the comfort of my own home, but now with the memories of last September to think back on. A lot can change in a short amount of time, and even though it’s the cheesiest thing I will ever type on this blog, that trip with Tumblr changed my life. Cheers to the memories, good luck to the new crop of bloggers attending the shows, and here’s to another great week of fashion. 


After spending last Thursday morning with Tumblr prepping for Fashion Week (just 4 more weeks!), I couldn’t help myself from looking back through my Instagrams and reliving some of the fun I had the last time I was part of the Tumblr Fashion Week program. The Spring 2012 season in New York and London feels like forever ago. Time really flies!
