Before the Runway Show: Designers Inspiration for NYFW

Inspiration is the driving force in any creative field. When it comes to designing for a runway show the source that inspires a designer is the heart and soul of the collection. Inspiration can come in various forms, perhaps a vacation, an art exhibit, architecture, landscape or maybe just an element of nature.

Check in with designers via Instagram where many are posting videos and images of their behind the scenes moments leading up to this week’s events. Happy…

Au Revoir, Gone to Paris!

Thomas Jefferson once said, “A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of life.” Those are wise words and this Fashionista is just hours away from taking that walk and making this life long dream a reality. That’s right, by the time some of you may read this post I will be Paris bound on vacation. It’s every art, fashion, photography and literary enthusiast’s dream to visit the city of lights. I am a blank canvas and only have the perspective of Paris from movies, books, photography and of course its fashion.
