It’s May, and spring is in the air. The flowers are blooming, fashionistas are waiting for fall collections to be released, and April’s Vogue Cover of Kim and Kanye is being used for mulch. Now that April showers have subsided and we’re all in a better mood, lets discuss what was lost in fashion’s most recent controversial moment.
During NYFW Fall 2012, J.Mendel gave us a big show. Front row seats were full of celebrity guests. Fashionable noted, two sunglass clad twins. Also spotted front row was fashion commentator and stylist, Mary Alice Stephenson. I got a chance to speak with fashion’s globe-trotting Queen backstage at J.Mendel.
For this year’s Academy Awards red carpet breakdown, Wendy Williams called on Stephenson. She has also dressed major celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker, and she is a major contributor to Harper’s Bazzaar, so I knew I was in good hands talking about the inspiration for the J.Mendel show. Minus her credentials, I may have been a little taken by all her compliments to my outfit.
Kristen Wigg won Oscar gold in J.Mendel this year. J.Mendel is known for amazing furs and modern evening wear, which did not disappoint. I picked a few pieces to highlight Fall 2012.
Fashion Week begins, and the Big Apple is all abuzz with excitement of fresh faces, and wonderful new friends. Packed lines are waiting to fill empty show spaces with anticipated guest. The RSVP’s are done, as guest roll in, one-by-one, to fill a fabulous location. Tonight was Designer Victor dE Souza–designer to the stars.
I had a chance to interview Victor dE Souza, he is a wonderful man and a spunky character. He has dressed everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker, to Lady GAGA, and Rihanna. Check my blog in coming weeks for the exciting interview and backstage view of his Fall 2012 collection.
I, and fellow crowd watches gazed with glee at his wonderful creations tonight, most of all his fabulous muse—“Lady in Red.” Chris De Bugh’s soundtrack was in my head all night, as photographers snapped her photo from every angle.
Here is a sneak peek so you can see why he is the designer to the stars. Fall 2012 is amazing—stay tuned…
Excuse my bad visuals, I promise my video is amazing… Also see if you can spot my fashion style muse in the crowd. One hint, she’s bootylicious! I have a wonderful interview and style post with her as well coming soon…
