The Shows: Hanley Mellon and DORÉ
Doré: These detailed dresses were displayed presentation style at the Gramercy Park Hotel. The colors and details were amazing! Each model stood on a platform at different levels to showcase each of their looks. For the most part, the dresses were gowns and intended for formal and important events. Each piece was very different from the other while still remaining cohesive. The intimate setting on the terrace of the hotel overlooked the city making for a great backdrop for the presentation. I liked that it was a presentation style event because we as the audience we able to interact with the designer and actually look very closely at the detail!
Hanley Mellon: This presentation was by far my favorite! I helped out at the show as well, so my pictures are limited, unfortunately! Inspired by Havana, Cuba, the collection portrayed burnt yellows and deep faded reds. Not only was the collection flawless, but the set and venue were extremely inviting and right on point with the theme. There were old cars and home inspired backdrops where the models stood. Every piece was very wearable and added a great perspective to old world Cuba. I wold wear every piece! With music blaring in the background and mingling of professionals and socialites in the industry, it was a great way to end my NYFW!
This look had me twirling all around New York! Starting off at Doré, I needed to wear something that would work for a day event while still being formal. I found just that in this Club Monaco midi skirt! It is so elegant and fits effortlessly. Finding a top to match proved to be difficult, but Aritzia came to the rescue! I originally wanted to wear a looser fitting white crop, which looked great, but since I was going to be transitioning into a night event with Hanley Mellon, black was the way to go. The elegance of the skirt allows for the crop top to show a little skin without making the outfit look tacky. I've never done a lip this red, but I'm glad I did! The rest of my makeup, hair, and accessories were left very simple to make the reed lip the main pop. I'd love to hear all of your thoughts on this look in the comments below!
