unnamed

 

As I mentioned a few days ago, Stella Maze debuted the Stella Hues shoe line during the Michael Costello s/s 15 collection during Mercedes-Benz fashion week in New York.

With her signature blue soles, her shoes were the perfect accessory to set off Project runway season 8 candidate and  Project Runway All-Star  season 1 finalist, Micheal Costello’s collection of edgy and  feminine dresses. If you  are interested in purchasing any items from her debut collection, visit her webpage here.  Just in case you want a closer look at her runway debut collection, watch the action below.

Video: Edwing D’ Angelo Fall/Winter 2014 Runway Show

Edwing D' Angelo NYFW FallWinter 2014 Collection

The Edwing D’ Angelo’s fall/winter 14 collection was inspired by old British aesthetics and aristocracy.  With this collection, the New York based designer explored with simplicity  by expressing and injecting his own point of view into his designs by revisiting colors, shapes and some of the fashion details that originated from that  period. The silhouettes were very modern  with riding attire, for both men and women  as part of the day wear, particularly the redingote made to appeal both genders. Basically it is old British aristocracy meets 2014 era.

Take a look below at the runway in motion and tell us what you think below.

Show Review: Dennis Basso Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

Dennis Basso Fall/Winter 2014 Collection New York Fashion Week

Here at Sereine Magazine, we are big fans of Dennis Basso. The man has been in the business for 30 years and celebrated this milestone last February with a phenomenal collection that was followed by a standing ovation from the crowd. One of the main attraction to me every time that I go see his fall collections is the fur.  The furrier knows how to work the most delicate fabric and turn it into a masterpiece.

Considering that some of  Basso’s customers include celebrities such as Brooke Shields, supermodel like Carol Alt, Coco Rocha and socialites, the evening gowns were a big draw for me. Considering that Oscar season is in full swing perhaps we can expect to see a few starlets wearing one of the gowns modeled on the runway comes Oscar night. Leave it to Basso to pair an evening look with over the knees boots. Could that be a new trend?

This silhouette below  says it all and was one of my favorites walking down the runway. I love how he cinched the coat at the waist with a belt. Super elegant.

Basso’s kept the hair simple and the make up to a minimum. When you have pieces like these that are making enough of a statement on their own,  less is more.  At any rate, share your thoughts below on this collection.

Show Review: Edwing D’ Angelo Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

Edwing D' Angelo NYFW FallWinter 2014 Collection

What I like about Edwing D’ Angelo  above is how he is able to keep you excited about his clothes. There is always an element of surprise  and the man knows how to put up a good collection.

The Edwing D’ Angelo’s fall/winter 14 collection was inspired by old British aesthetics and aristocracy.  With this collection, the New York based designer explored with simplicity  by expressing and injecting his own point of view into his designs by revisiting colors, shapes and some of the fashion details that originated from that  period. The silhouettes were very modern  with riding attire, for both men and women  as part of the day wear, particularly the redingote made to appeal both genders (see photo below). Basically it is old British aristocracy meets the new 2014 era.

With that said, while waiting for official photos, here’s a few stills that you might enjoy.  Cell phones photos are not the best so excuse the quality of the images.

Emerging Designer At New York Fashion Week: Austin Wu

Austin Wu

Who said great designers are only made in Europe or in the US? Taiwanese designer Austin Wu who debuted his first New York Fashion Week collection is proof that we should take a look at what is happening in Asia.

As part of the Asia Fashion Collection,  an  incubation project produced and supported by Vantan and PARCO that aims to contribute to the development of the fashion industry across Asia,  the budding designer known for its digital textile print, well-executed dresses and lines would most likely use this experience as source of  inspiration for his next collection. Until we see more of him in the next few years, check out some of his designs below that were not part of the collection he showed on February 8.

Emerging Designer At New York Fashion Week: Danilo Gabrielli Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

Danilo Gabrielli is a NYC based brand incorporating feminine edge into classic style. Originally hailing from a small island off the west coast of Tuscany, Italy, he first launched his big stage collection during SS 2011. He is back during NYFW in his fifth season for AW 2014 and boy do these clothes look rich as the satin, silks and brocade fabrics add a touch of luxury. I love thoughtful, wearable clothes and these looks are a tad provocative without compromising taste.

Danilo Gabrielli 1

The collection seems to be a throw back to Medieval times, with tops mimicking armor and luxurious capes. This first look screamed Joan of Arc!

I liked the muted use of color here, with randomly  (or intentionally) placed paint splashes. It totally works.

This is a woman who means business, he really softens it up here. That sweater is everything and I want it. Now.

Emerging Designer At New York Fashion Week: Rebecca Vallance Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

Rebecca Vallence Fall 14 collection New York Fashion Week

Even though Rebecca Vallance has been on the scene since 2009 when she launched her ready to wear collection,  she is still considered an emerging designer. In 2012, Harper’s 
Bazaar
 Australia
 named her one of the top three emerging fashion designers to watch.

Rebecca Vallence Fall 14 collection New York Fashion Week

The designer known for her whimsical 
spirit 
and
 strong 
global
 aesthetic by creating 
timeless 
pieces 
that
 are 
both 
classically
 constructed 
and
 innovative 
in 
design stayed true to herself by delivering a collection that reflected her Tailoring skills.

Rebecca Vallance - Presentation - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014

Entitled ‘The Lady’s Man”, her fall 14 offerings were all about feminine, classy and elegant silhouettes with at times a menswear feel to it.  It seems with this collection that the menswear inspired trend is not about to go away anytime soon and that more women seem to want to wear more mens’ inspired pieces but that are still feminine and tailored to fit a woman’s body.
