We’ve been seeing a lot of red pouts for Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week. Everyone from Carlos Miele to Jason Wu had their models strutting down the runway with ultra bold lips. There’s nothing sexier than a classic red. Check out the rest of this seasons’ shows that have jumped on the lipstick bandwagon.
Vivid yellow dresses are the first thing we noticed when we walked into David Tlale’s Spring 2013 presentation at The Box. Tribalesque beats and a strong base filled the room as the turban clad models posed with fierce eyes. The collection was inspired by South African culture, and that was shown through the stunning floral tunics.
Peeps – I did a review on my blog so I’ll provide the link but, the designers were awesome across all 4 days!! The big winners for me were Kluk CGdT (Day 4), Fabiani (Day 3), and Michelle Ludek (Day 1). Most people ask why the Cape Town Fashion Week but most the designers are newer to the scene thus their stuff is much fresher; there is greater access to the actual designers (I did an interview with David Tlale and we’ll be connecting at NYFW); the entire fashion scene is much more encompassing- tickets are sold to the public; and there is really no air of pretense so you can truly enjoy what the designers have created!!
Also I had the opportunity to connect with several of the five-star hotels and review their services so, again, check out my blog!
