  • Farewell 2011, Hello 2012!

    Hello Fashion Friends,

    2011 was indeed a special year for many reasons. Firstly, it was the birth of this Fashion Blog, One Style at a Time. It was a great year of connections, interactions and meeting new Fashionistas from all over the country and the world. Among many other great events this year was a successful year attending New York Fashion Week and meeting one of my favorite Fashion Designers of all time Oscar de la Renta. 

    I am very thankful for this platform and for each and every person that visited and brought their fabulous comments and opinions to many of my past posts. I look forward to a very fashionable 2012 and to bringing as much great style and ideas to your day to day via this blog.

    Best wishes for a Healthy, Prosperous and always Fashion filled New Year! 

    Cheers! From One Style at a Time

    Star Studded NYFW S/S 2012

    New York Fashion Week is always filled with Fashion insiders, editors, celebrities and the who’s who of Fashion. Join One Style at a Time as we look back at the celebrities and fashion elite that were seen stepping in and out of the most coveted fashion shows. Our contributing photographer Jose L. Cartagena made the rounds throughout fashion week and came across some very familiar faces.

    A Sunny & Citrus Spring at NYFW S/S 2012

    Spring/Summer 2012 collections have brightened up the runways in a big way this week. Several designers have chosen to clearly present bright and vibrant colors in their ready to wear designs. One color that has punctuated repeatedly is the sunny and vivid color yellow. Whether used in organza, silks, chiffon’s etc, one after another we see it revisited. From light pales yellow tones to a stronger chartreuse, you can bet your fashion dollar that yellow is here to stay for Spring ready to wear.

    BCBGMAXAZRIA S/S 2012- New York Fashion Week

    New York Fashion Week opened its doors today just a few hours away from Fashion Night out. 
    I attended the BCBGMaxAzria Spring/Summer 2012 show today at Lincoln Center. As soon as you arrive you couldn’t  help but notice everyone was in great spirits. Despite the heavy rain all morning in New York you couldn’t help but feel the great energy at the Theatre today. Everyone seemed so excited to kick off fashion week. From sightings of editors, publishers and many fashionistas (some wearing the FNO t-shirt) the buzz was just about to begin and it was palpable. 

    So once the runway was ready, the audience was seated and the lights were dimmed. The music by Hercules & Love Affair (My House, “Stopmakingme Remix”) started and here come the models….
    The silhouettes were light and airy with bright and neutral tones. There were tribal prints dresses with embroidery and pleats. The hems were elongated and paired with platform wooden sandals and metallic clutches.  There was a sexy edginess mixed with a soft palette that made this collection glamourous but very modern.   
    Here are a few of my personal photos from the show. It was definitely a great start to the most fabulous and exciting week in New York.

    Recapping NYFW S/S 2010

    New York Fashion Week is just about a month away and the anticipation of what’s to come is already in the air. What will the designers be showing for the Spring 2012 Collections? Which designers will be showing at Lincoln Center and other venues around the city?
    In the spirit of what is the takeover of Fashion in the big apple, I have put together some of the moments that I witnessed last year during NYFW Spring 2011 at Lincoln Center. So who was in attendance? Well, from the glamorous to the very colorful and creative there was an array of Fashionistas on site. Of course, there were plenty of celebrity sightings and industry insiders that made spontaneous cameos. It will be very interesting to see who will  make the rounds at the shows this year. Just remember if you can’t make the live shows, many designers are now live streaming them online. Will you be attending any of the shows this year at Fashion week?  Which labels are you excited to see sashay down the runway? Come back for more NYFW news as we get closer in the days ahead.
