Z Spoke By Zac Posen

Wonderful designer Zac Posen decided to work out a lower-priced line called Z Spoke by Zac Posen. This is kind of old news because this line launched this spring exculsively at Saks Fifth Avenue with prices starting at a mere $78.
And just a little word about Zac Posen himself, he launched his designing career at 21 in 2001. Famous for his dresses, his lower-priced line features separates such as knits and khaki shorts.
Back to the line: According to WWD, Posen states that Z Spoke is "not a celebrity brand, but one more attuned to the street."
For the Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear Runway, Posen debuted his sister collection. Comprised of a majority of yellows, blues, and reds, Z Spoke features a rather "cartoon-y" feel to. Yet, definitely, his sister collection has pieces that can be worn by rather anyone and not just featured on the runway as well as celebrities. At a great price, these beautiful pieces are amazing and Zac Posen did a great job venturing away from his signature dresses to separates (and even some wonderful dresses) made for those who aren't going to spend $900 to $12,000 on a dress.

Charlotte Ronson

Time to begin the Spring 2011 Fashion Week posts even though it ended on the 16th. At least I'm getting to it!
And I'm starting it off with Charlotte Ronson's collection which presented on September 11.
Her collection perfectly mixes feminine with grungy, piecing together plaids and florals with dark colors. She brings forth a laid-back look with slouchy and sheer clothing and combat boots and heels worn with socks.

Charlotte's first collection, C. Ronson, came out in 2000 and two years later she opened her own flagship store in New York. Gaining much success and publicity, she changed the name of her collection to Charlotte Ronson. As years went on, Ronson designed a line called Play by C. Ronson for Urban Outfitters. A year later, in Spring of 2009, she signed a deal with JC Penny and came out with a line called I [Heart] Ronson. Never failing to disappoint, Charlotte Ronson's collections for Fashion Week as well her collaborations with retailers are always beautiful and carry charm.

Runways With Surprises

Chanel Iman. Karlie Kloss. Agyness Deyn. Coco Rocha. Maryna Linchuk.
When you hear those names, you know they're models. You know that they walk the designer runways that happen every Fall and Spring.

How about these names?
Miranda Kerr. Gisele Bündchen. Adriana Lima. Heidi Klum. Alessandra Ambrosio.
They're the Victoria's Secret Angels of course. They walk the runway for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show that presents itself once a year.

Getting straight to the point, the Victoria's Secret Models have walked runways before. They are models just like Chanel, Coco, Maryna. Yet, they're a different "type" of model, I guess you could say. So it was a surprise, albeit a lovely one, that some of those Angels appeared on runways of Fall 2010 Fashion Week.

Alessandra Ambrosio walked the runway for Giles and Prada this year. In the past, she's walked for Oscar de la Renta (Fall 2001), Vivienne Tam (Fall 2001), Balmain (Spring 2000), and more.

This Fashion Week, Miranda Kerr walked runways for Balenciaga and Prada. Previous years, she's walked for Betsey Johnson (Fall 2007), Jason Wu (Fall & Spring 2007), L.A.M.B. (Spring 2007), and Threeasfour (Spring 2007).

So hello amazing models that bring curves to the Fashion Week Runway.

That really is Miranda Kerr. From the Balenciaga 2010 runway. No lie.

Fashion's Night Out 2009

Fashion Week Begins With a Bang

Ports 1961, Richard Chai, BCBGMAXAZRIA, and more kick off Fashion Week Fall 2010 today. And although this is the start of an exciting week filled with amazing runways and beautiful models, it started off somberly.
British fashion designer, capable of bringing amazing designs to the runway, was found dead in his house this morning. Committing suicide, the designer is said to have been extremely upset of his mother's death, who had passed away days before.

His lower-priced line, McQ was supposed to show today, but due to his death it was immediately canceled.
McQueen brought unique-ness to his designs as well as the set. He never failed to bring awe, and even tears once, to the eyes of the audience.

Known for pushing up the bar, McQueen showed crazy prints, snakeskin, and heels that have never been seen anywhere else. His theatrical-like runway was simply amazing. No words can really describe how much of his passion for design and style were shown through his works.

As Fashion Week continues, it'll be evident that Alexander McQueen is no longer there, but his works will definitely live on to carry his name.

Happy New Year!

So it's kind of too late to say "happy new year" but this is the first post of the new year, so I thought I'd put it out there anyway.
Here's to a new year, a new decade.

First off, Fashion Week '10 is in less than a month (February 11-18) and the schedule is already up for New York. Can I just say that I'm already excited for this hectic week filled with wonderful designers, wonderful clothing, and wonderful models? Well, I am.
And an interesting fact I found out today...you've all seen the Burberry ads that feature Emma Watson. Well, also, in the new Spring 2010 Burberry ads, her brother Alex Watson makes an appearance. But that's not the crazy part, apparently he's set to walk the Burberry 2010 Runway next month in London. Helloo Hermione's real life brother on the Burberry Runway. I love it already.

Note: this picture is from July 2008, premiere of "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix"

That's all for now! I'll try to post more, especially once Fashion Week comes around.
