LAQUAN is not an overnight success. He’s deliberate and meticulously on a level that has now become familiar and mainstream. He’s worked and kept working smart; after all in fashion sex sells and intelligence keeps it going. Instead of reinventing the wheel, Smith sought to stick with in the popular pieces that best represent the celebrities he’s dressed, his culture and ultimately himself. “It’s a looking-good, feeling-good collection with the understanding and the ownership of the fact that we are a Black-owned luxury brand, the designer said. Smith’s reality is one of bold sexuality and huge female power. The woman he designs for...

Kate and Laura Mulleavy have the minds that create dramatic creations that certainly blur the line between art and a fashion business. Their dual imagination has given us 15 years of magic. Now with a twindemic (Covid-19 + the wildfires) in full force we see a raging floral bomb that is so beautiful I can’t tear my eyes away of this. It is all fantasy and dreams and we need this fanciful channel NOW. Pajama sets, slips, robes, trousers, dresses, silk floral wreaths that frame models’ faces, real life fairies, nymphs, or other magical woodland sprites, we want it all. One word: wonderment. ...

Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong are based in Toronto, not the obvious center of the fashion world but they’ve managed again to create the most wondrous presentation of color palette that kept our attention glued to every piece. The luxury. The palette. The textures. The ruffles. Monochromatic looks that again proved that their hearts still beat in their home island of Jamaica. I love frills and fancifulness and there was absolutely no where else better to be than gazing at this collection. . ...

Nicky Zimmermann’s Spring 2020 runway show was pure and the pieces that shone through were all white. I’m only covering this enviable pieces. She spoke about her inspiration being the last days of summer and the documentary, The Endless Summer. Very bohemian which is the concurrent theme. The pieces can be played with and styled to perfection and for that reason this is the go to brand! ! ...

There was a time when you had to be invited to New York Fashion Week or find some clever way to get yourself in attendance at the well sought after shows/events. Some say it was a privilege. Technically, Fashion Week existed to serve those working in the fashion industry—buyers looking for new merchandise for their stores, magazine editors reporting on the trends, stylists pulling for their clients’ next big red carpet, and so on. But with every passing year, its audience grows wider. Through live-stream videos and Instagram Stories and other social sharing, there are more eyes on the shows than...

Armani Privé showed two sections this season. We love the dependable tailoring and structure but this time there were imaginatively crisp jackets topped trousers with a pajama-like ease; in most cases the pants were veiled with a net. If you know our team you know how obsessed we are with net fabrication or anything of a mesh nature. But back to the moment when the show turned red carpet; it was a beautiful range of evening offerings. Powder pink silk satin dresses embroidered with pearls and crystals in a lozenge motif swathed in lamé tulle and black tulle full-skirted gowns. This...

Erdem Moralioglu’s lookbook, with its eccentric “twinning” of models is the best visuals we’ve seen all year. The floral prints, billowy sleeves, and head-wraps all make up this intricate interim collection. The oversize bows, printed tights to match dresses, and the most wonderful polka dots are the delicate holiday dresses which reminds me of my paradise childhood dreams....

Stephen Wong and Kirk Pickersgill used their Jamaican roots to create their resort 2020 collection. To try to articulate this show with words  will not do it justice. It is truly a revival of vibrancy, each piece livelier and more colorful than the last. It is structured, unstructured, voluminous and ruffled. Pure joy to see the offerings, to see the BOLD MAGIC!...

             Michael Kors Resort 2020 collection includes black. Groundbreaking:). Resort has never looked like this, but I love it. Besides that, this is a mult-layered collection which certainly could not be described as basic, the pieces clearly can be worn in nearly all seasons. These are ‘urbane’ clothes mixing embellishments, polka-dots, and ruffles. The stand out is that the tailoring is impeccable as usual and equally important is that this season (aside from the one piece swimsuit) is absolutely a beautiful mix of...
