"If anyone really wanted to change the world, they'd bring in the fashion bitches." - Kelly Cutrone



It's been awhile since my last post, I've been busy adjusting to my new New York City life. I am currently the PR and Sales intern at Wildfox Couture's NY showroom and needless to say it's amazing.
A few weeks ago we flew out to Miami to launch the highly anticipated swim collection, Wildfox Swim. The collection was inspired by the story "Go West, young cow girl" featuring badass Aussie model Anja Konstantinova.
"The story is of a girl who loved roadtrips, roping cattle, and wearin' bikinis."

We kicked off the weekend with a wild launch party presentation in the penthouse of the Raleigh Hotel, where models worked the crowd to the music of DJ Mia Moretti and electric violinist Caitlin Moe.

I die for long-sleeved minis...and Balmain

Safe to say Christophe Decarnin is my fashion god.
Metallics are back in full force across the designers.
Decarnin has shifted from his previous punk-biker-badass look to a more glam rock look.

Decarnin was not at the show in Paris, and is currently resting as per the doctor's orders. Best wishes to the talented designer.

Wildfox brings back Woodstock

Tucked in the basement of the Hudson Hotel, Good Units hosted the intimate preview for Wildfox Couture's Fall 2011 collection on Wednesday.

The dark underground atmosphere contrasted the colourful and fearlessly dressed guests. Guests were mingling and bobbing around to The Misshapes, watched videos from previous collections and sipped cocktails named the "Jimmy Hendrix" and "Anita Pallenberg". Designers Emily Faulstich and Kimerbly Gordon wandered the crowd that had slowly turned into a dance party.

The walls were carefully speckled with giant flowers, which complemented the flower-child look of the collection. Unlike the Fashion Week shows a few blocks north at Lincoln Center, Wildfox models danced with guests and made their way through the crowd to the front of the room where they formed a tall, skinny, leggy spectacle. Photographers swarmed, making the show official.

True to their brand, the collection preview consisted of baggy t-shirts with Woodstock inspired words ("I left my heart at Woodstock") and an over-sized, fringed, smiley-faced poncho. My favourite: the baggy, yellow, "I need a taxi" t-shirt.

The 70s inspired makeup was done by Urban Decay.

A spring trend: Flatforms

Love or leave...

I can't quite decide how I feel about these... Nonetheless this is a trend for spring and they certainly look very comfortable. I think I would prefer a wedge or platform heel to these.
DG/4/2011: the more I come back to this post, the more I realize that I really, really do not like this trend.

Camilla Belle: a midriff baring beauty

Camilla Belle makes it impossible not to love this love-or-hate trend. The midriff baring trend is making its way from the runway to the streets, making people look twice and really ponder their opinion. The super high-waisted pants and matching tailored blazer keeps this skin baring look classy.
