The latest BCBG Max Azria collection to cascade the runway isn’t far beyond your buying reach. While getting the scoop backstage in hair and makeup (and taking selfies on Instagram with the designer Max Azria himself!) I discovered in a new social shopping twist, BCBG included “how to buy” the ready to wear runway looks by “liking” an Instagram photo from the collection.
The Instagram shopping tool stems from collaboration between BCBGMaxAzria and the LIKEtoKNOW.it service, which sends an email to users who have “liked” an Instagram photo a link to buy it from the designer’s website. In all, the design house said, nine looks were available for purchase via the new system.
If you fell in love with the spring show flowing with bohemian vibes and plenty of pale, pastels and ethereal colors like bare pink, light blush, aqua, gray violet and lavender, then you’ll be happy to know that the latest collection from BCBGMaxAzria has plenty to go around.
Designers Max Azria and his wife, Lubov, described their Spring 2015 collection as a mix of “timeless elegance with bohemian silhouettes.” The emphasis was on long, filmy garments belted at the waist, in subtle prints or, often, a simple one-color look. A white embroidered motorcycle jacket, though, was my favorite piece paired with a cotton skirt and cotton mesh embroidered top — all in white.
Check out some of my favorite pieces from the collection below.

“Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future…this is known as fashion week.” – Carrie Bradshaw ‘Sex and the City’
BCBGMAXAZRIA Then & Now
Every New York Fashion Week, I find myself looking back at seasons past to guide my Lincoln Center uniform and get a gasp on closet “must haves” for the upcoming season. Drifting through magazines in search for the season’s hottest trends, can become a bit cumbersome – so I thought, why not just go back to the source? Designer runways is where all the hot trends are birthed, so why not revisit designer runway pasts while in anticipation of next season’s hautest looks.
Looking for ways to transition your summer wardrobe into cool, crisp Autumn months? One word. Layers. Silk shift dresses laid the foundation of the BCBGMAXAZRIA gypsy-infused Fall 2013. Add cleanly knit, slouchy sweaters and beanies coupled with a choice of loose-fitting outerwear and you’ve got the collection down in a nutshell.

It was shortly after 6pm and excitement was buzzing through the island of Manhattan unlike anything else I’ve experienced.
It was Fashions Night Out and my set schedule was planned to the minute, who I’d hang out with, clients I’d go to see, celebrities I was bound to run into…the whole night was planned…that is, until 6:15pm rolled around…
“If you want to make God laugh…tell Him your plans…” – Unknown
My Fashions Night Out revolved around Fifth Avenue (aka the Mecca of NYC Fashion) from Drake at Versace to potent flutes of champagne at BCBG the ladies of DivasandDorks.com had a grand ol time – check out the pictorial of Fashions Night Out, through my eyes…
It began as a journey to Macy’s Herald Square…so up 34th we went…that is until club Famous Footwear grabbed our attention…no really, Famous Footwear had music blaring and a line down the street as if it was Ibiza…
Most stores lured you in with free food and drinks…(ding, ding…) – and the little pigs in a blanket served by the waitresses in overalls at Levi’s were divine…and yes, the piggies were grazing in a tray filled with grass…How cute!
Finally making it to the Fifth Avenue Lord & Taylor department store where not only the NFL Jets cheerleaders were found gyrating at the entrance – but also where the games and flutes of champagne seemed to overflow with participation from the crowds of consumers…
Finally, making my way to Saks Fifth Avenue (staying true to the Divas and Dorks mentality) we stopped by the Lenovo lounge where they launched the newest member of the Lenovo family laptop and highlighted a Lenovo favorite (mixing the music that kept the party going all night long…)…
Then there was Drake at Versace…
Onto the Coup De Grace of FNO entertainment, Bergdoff Goodman’s display windows came to life with live musical performances and interesting displays of fashion, flair and more…
Ending the the night, Tiffany, Cat Peoples and I made a stop into BCBG for some fly accessories, (more champagne) and more time with an old friend…
