NYFW: The highlights

I am literally fashion obsessed. And as much as I love a good high street bargain, I can’t wait until I can shop in places that you’d find on Rodeo Drive, New Bond Street, Fifth Avenue or the Avenue des Champs Elysees. So considering my designer obsession, you can probably see why I love Fashion Week season. Kicking it off in style was New York Fashion Week and it was certainly an eventful one!

From Posh Spice To Posh Style

I’ve always loved Victoria Beckham’s brand, not only for her beautiful collections made up of chic tailoring and clean-cut lines, but for the woman behind the operation. Her transformation from 90s popstar to WAG to highly-acclaimed designer is one we can all admire. And with a handsome husband and model children to boot, she is living proof that some women really can have it all. Article-size_NYFW_7 Article-size_NYFW_6 Image source telegraph.co.uk

A Fallen Angel

If you use the whole ‘fallen angel’ chat up line on Candice Swanepoel at any point in the near future then I’m going to guess that she won’t take it very well. The Victoria’s secret model, lost her footing while walking the Givenchy SS16 show and landed on her hands. Like a true professional though, she got back up and carried on.

Model Behaviour

Over on the Diane Von Furstenberg show, it was like instagram brought to life. Leading the model pack was Kendall Jenner in a gorgeous sheer playsuit, followed by gal pals Gigi Hadid, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Aldridge and Karlie Kloss. Selfies were involved, naturally.

Face Lace

Luckily for Candice Swanepoel, her mishap wasn’t the star of the Givenchy show. It was the statement face lace that people can’t stop talking about. The collection was meant to be a “celebration of love” but this bold look seems to be more of a celebration of makeup and along with the tribute to 9/11, it was the star of the show.

Same Name, Same Style

Jenny Packham is definitely up there in my top 5 favourite designers - I’m sure the whole sharing-a-name-thing has nothing to do with it. Her SS16 collection didn’t disappoint - with floaty fabrics and bright florals, this is a collection that I’m really hoping translates well to the high street. Until I can afford the real thing of course. Article-size_NYFW_4 Article-size_NYFW_5 Image source vogue.co.uk
