Venexiana debuts Spring/ Summer 2013 Collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

I never thought I would be sitting front row during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week ...but dreams do come true!!! Since I sat so close to the runway, you'll be happy to know that I have amazing pictures to share from  Venexiana's Spring/ Summer 2013 edgy yet stunningly beautiful collection. On Saturday, September 9th, designer, Kati Stern, showcased an array of evening gowns intricately designed with the perfect touch of luxury. As you'll see from my favorite looks below, there was a lot of shimmer, metallic sequins, glamorous feathers, crystal embellishments and overall va-va-voom! The show opened with a variety of softly colored gowns. But, towards the end, the energy shifted and everything became a little more rock and roll which is what Kati Stern is best most known for in the fashion world. The fabrics became darker and the designs were more dramatic. Check out Venexiana 's Spring/ Summer 2013 collection and leave me a comment with your favorite look below

Mara Hoffman's "Aloha" Spring/ Summer 2013 Collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Sazoneros! When I read the invitation to Mara Hoffman 's Summer/ Spring 2013 show in my inbox, I had a little trouble breathing...not going to lie! Mara is one of my favorite designers to check out during Swim Week in Miami so I could only imagine how fabulous her runway show would be once I arrived at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. I love the Bohemian feel of her designs and Mara's Summer/ Spring 2013 collection was certainly a hit on the runway! This season, the inspiration for her show was the word “Aloha” – from the origin of peace in it’s meaning, to the spirit of the Hawaiian islands that it represents. The collection reflects the vibrant colors and spirit of island culture. You can see this theme throughout the collection, from swimsuits worn on the runway, to Bermuda surf shorts, to long flowy dresses. As Hoffman explains, “Each season, my goal is to take the audience on a journey and express the transcendent feeling of love & positivity. This is what

Perfection in New York: Nautica Men's Spring 2013 Presentation at The Empire Hotel's Rooftop

Menswear never looked so good!!! On Friday, September 7th, I attended Nautica Men's Spring 2013 Presentation at The Empire Hotel's rooftop in New York. This was definitely a perfect day in the big apple in my eyes! As I arrived to the rooftop, I was greeted by a friendly line-up of sizzling men wearing a variety of different looks from beachwear to casual menswear. The view from this Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week presentation was phenomenal as you'll see below. The collection featured my favorite traditional Nautica colors like dark navy blue, bright red, white and green. I overheard everyone in the crowd wooing over the splashes of neon yellow in the collection. There was something about lining the male models right in front of the New York skyline that gave each look a sultry touch of style. Check out my pictures and post your comments at the end of this post to let me know what you think of the Nautica collection! After the show, I headed over to Times
