Apparel from J Crew’s Spring 2015 collection shown Tuesday at New York Fashion Week

J Crew showed their Spring/Summer 2015 collection at New York Fashion Week this Tuesday in a presentation at Lincoln Center.  J Crew fans maybe in for a surprise when they see what’s in store for next Spring.  The collection looks very much like resort wear with a distinctly Mediterranean  twist.  For Spring/Summer 2015, J Crew womenswear designer Tom Mora was inspired by a recent trip to Ibiza. The result is a very relaxed look . I  had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Mora before the J Crew presentation and get more detail about what J Crew aficionadas can expect to see on the racks next spring.   Continue reading »

The beauty roadmap for models at the Lela Rose SS15 Spring show from Kevyn Aucoin.

This year at New York Fashion Week, I had the opportunity to go backstage at several fashion shows to see the make-up and hair styling artists prepare the models for the runway show.  It was literally an eye opening experience, there’s so much going on backstage.  Just as every fashion collection has a style and color palette,  the make-up for each collection also does.  The make-up matches the colors and style of the clothing and it’s an intensive experience getting the beauty and fashion in sync.  Here are the make-up tips from Kevyn Aucoin stylists from two of my favorite New York Fashion Week shows: Lela Rose and Milly for Spring 2015.

Target Partners with TOMS for Holiday Collaboration

Toms target tees FILEminimizer Target Partners with TOMS for Holiday Collaboration

Target Tom’s Boys’ and Girls’ Logo Tees

Today Target announced that they are teaming up with TOMS for a limited-edition collection for the holidays. My first thought is this sounds much more practical and accessible than the ill-fated Target & Neiman Marcus Holiday collaboration.  T-Shirts and cool slip on shoes will sell better than overpriced designer imitations.   Our spies tell us that TOMS for Target will feature more than 50 items, each under $50. The collection  will be available at all Target stores in the U.S.. Canada, Target.com on November 16 .  The collection is not just slip on shoes, there will also be home goods and apparel and accessories for women, men and kids. Continue reading »
