Day 2 of New York Fashion Week was a blur. I ran from place to place all day and barely remembered to change from heels to flats in between so my feet are paying the price, but they looked damn good on the streets of New York!
Thank you for your comments and emails from the NYFW Day 1 post, much appreciated and I completely agree, far too many pictures and way too long. I’ve listened and although I’m still excited to share each and every detail I’ll hold back and give you the highlights. I encourage you to click through to the designer links to see their collections in their entirety.
Rodebjer was sparsely attended thus allowing me to jump right up and snap a few pics. The show was rather flat with robe-like tops and unflattering for most dropped crotches and boxy tops. There were a couple of stand-out skirts like the gathered ivory tulle and the matte multi-colored sequins. Despite the lack of excitement in the room, the space was a nice change from the tents at Lincoln Center as the show was held in an outdoor ‘cabana’ of The Maritime Hotel in Chelsea.
Noon by Noor was a lovely surprise as the whole collection felt soft and feminine. Who wouldn’t feel gorgeous wearing one of these floral embellished frocks.

The Mark & Estel New World Collection was the anti-Spring/Summer collection. As I’ve recently shared here and here, I’ll all about monochromatic looks both in fashion and at home. Mark & Estel brought just that in the most unlikely of warm weather palettes – black, white, and gray. Although most was a bit to heavy for the warm East Coast weather, I certainly found interiors inspiration via the collection.
The Latin American influence in Rebecca Minkoff‘s stunning collection was evident in the floral embroidery and prints which were selected. Janelle Monae’s live performance added an entirely new dimension. P.S. The shoes were killer!
What’s your favorite collection we’ve shared so far?
