Bright, Bold Fashion

29 Sep


Every year I look forward to seeing new and inspiring talent at the Academy of Art University Runway Show in New York. This year was no exception, and while I was mesmerized by many of the collections, designer Ginie C.Y. Huang’s show was my favorite.  For those of you who don’t know me, I am a huge fan of bright colors; bright dresses, bright running shoes, I love any all things bright. This collection was a burst of energy, from the bright green jackets to the enchanting fuchsia dresses. The lush color palette represented the freshness of spring and the colors used flattered each other without being overdone. Feathers accented the garments harmoniously and complimented the silhouettes, allowing for wonderful movement as the models worked the runway. The use of minimal trims and no patterns worked for her advantage, as our attention was focused on the silhouettes and colors, which were the main attraction. In her next collection I would like to see her play around with prints and incorporate them with her exquisite color choices. Textiles used in this collection included silk organza and wool, making for beautifully unique and comfortable pieces perfect for the spring season.  Dresses were feminine and form fitting, accentuating the models figures without being clingy. Ginie is clearly a designer who is not afraid to have fun with fashion and her bright and bold collection was a breath of fresh air from the run of the mill staple colors we see in almost every other collection. Reminiscent of 1960’s silhouettes, the playful colors and retro glasses transported me back in time. The collection as a whole worked extremely well together and I wish that I could fast forward in time to see these pieces worn. If you, like me, love bright and beautiful collections, make sure you check out Ginie’s Spring 2013 Runway Show, believe me you won’t be sorry. She is a designer to watch and I’m really looking forward to what she presents to us in the future.


Entering the big wide world of Blogging!

I am proud to say this is my first post as a brand new blogger. I’m excited to start sharing my life with the rest of you savvy bloggers. My life consists of school, work, food, fashion, friends, family and of course my dogs, who I’m sure you’ll see more than enough of as time goes on!! My greatest fashion inspiration is street wear, and I see such a wide range of it living here in the city. I also get inspired by my friends, who are all so different and unique when it comes to their personal style. This blog is going to be devoted to sharing the fashion I see and wear, as well as the food I love and other odds and ends from my life.
