it’s that time again: [spring 2015] fashion week. whether you work in the industry full-time or just have an interest, this is when trends are born. it’s pretty exciting. as i do digital pr for one of the beauty sponsors, nars cosmetics, i’ll be scurrying around the city working backstage at some of the most-watched runway shows including thakoon, 3.1 phillip lim, rodarte, alexander wang, and marc jacobs. with that in mind, for my own sanity, be prepared for my blog content to act as a reflection of these experiences.

some features to expect:

  • a day in the life of a beauty pr girl
  • what it’s really like backstage
  • what are the must-have items in my bag
  • glimpses of non-work presentations and events

now, it’s your turn — as i try to implore each season, if you there is anything you’d like to see during fashion week, feel free to reply/comment/email me with suggestions.

months and months ago, fashionista published a hefty review of the joie fall 2014 presentation, which took place during new york fashion week in february — i know, i’m reaching real back here — but the collection itself was so memorable to me that i couldn’t not light a spotlight on it. serge azria, who helms the brand + equipment and current/elliott, spends much of his time shuttling back and forth between paris and los angeles and the mix of cultures is quite evident in both the clothes and styling.

regarding fall 2014, azria explained, “this collection is more about a moment, and the moment is saturday afternoon in paris, when you can wake up very late, dressed but undressed, and can walk around the streets with your hair a little bit unmade and you feel comfortable. sexy and tasteful.” i love a solid ‘inspiration story,’ don’t you?

though it is hovering in the fifties today, summer is on the horizon, which means that ankles will be showing their pale selves sooner than you can reach for your jergen’s natural glow. with that in mind, i’ve been thinking about ankle cuffs; they’ve been subtly appearing on the runway for some seasons now, but mara hoffman solidified my lust with her fall 2014 collection where her models donned those by fililí

in preparation for its annual, week-long scadstyle celebration, the savannah school of design enlisted some top designers to describe their latest collections, day-to-day life, personal style, and so on. within the short pre-event film, alexander wang explained that his spring accessories “were inspired by his friends who have trouble keeping track of their belongings when they go out partying at night, also known as “party chicks.” i don’t doubt that they thanked him mightily for the practical go-tos, which feature lighter cases on shoes and retractable key rings on the handbags.

i have this really weird feeling that phillip lim is trolling us with these fall 2014 bags.

something cool that happened during fashion week? opening ceremony revealed an upcoming collection inspired by the works of rené magritte. featured in the form of both clothing and footwear (birkenstocks and fans included), “the range takes twelve of magritte's iconic paintings and translates them directly into fashion.” basically, it is awesome. while i am scared of the prices that will accompany these pieces, you can expect me to be scurrying into the nearest o.c. in may when they become available.

pale pink isn’t just for pepto-bismol anymore, it actually makes an amazing color palette for a wardrobe, as perfectly demonstrated by kaelen's semi-monochromatic fall 2014 collection. i want all of it on me right now — and i don’t even like pink.

it’s been a couple weeks since new york fashion week, but i still can’t get public school's fall 2014 collection out of my head. for someone with a slightly minimal, slightly tomboyish personal style (me), it was absolutely glorious and a very impressive first line-up with regard to womenswear. basically, everyone is going crazy over this brand, which really jumped onto the fashion industry radar when designers maxwell osborne and dao-yi chow were initiated into the cfda incubator; i have a feeling this is the tip of their iceberg, so definitely put them on on your “to watch” list.

i am a sucker for a good coat and band of outsiders never lets me down in that department. its fall 2014 range is one for the ages and i’d really, really love it if the three shown above (and the rest of those outfits) delicately insert themselves in my closet.

for the first time, yestadt millinery displayed a range of gloves at its fall 2014 preview. the styles were the perfect counterpart to molly’s quirky-femme headgear.
