If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m not a complicated girl. I love jeans, t-shirts and overall comfort (first & foremost). With New York Fashion Week in my rear view, I’m reminded how I came into my NYFW fashion ideas with the thought of comfort in mind. Luckily, fashion and comfort can coexist under the tents at Lincoln Center.
Last week, as I rushed out of Lincoln Center to my next show, I was approached by FashionBombDaily.com photographers to be featured on the site for “Real Style”. (I had no ideas if I was going to be featured as a fashion HIT or MISS, but I was pleasantly surprised at what I found.) Check it out and let me know what you think!

Bringing a refined pizzazz all their own, the designs of Ruffian’s Fall 2012 ready to wear collection exuded wool, plaids in a variety of colors and the tailored look that only a row or two of buttons can bring.
From mid-length jackets to full-length coats, the consistency of button use was apparent throughout this entire collection – bringing us to terms that it’s okay to enjoy a conservative Fall wardrobe later this year. There were one or two pieces that were not consistent with the overall theme of luxurious, tailored looks – but overall the idea of well-tailored “English” looks transpired well and is sure to transcend fashion trend for years to come.

Now that New York Fashion Week has come and gone if you’re a veteran, you’ve noticed that you have plenty of Fashion Show “receipts” to remind you of the shows you attended…all thanks to Fashion GPS.
One of the hot new trends at Fashion Week this season arrived in the form of a barcode.
In the past, runway show goers had to RSVP by e-mail or phone and then wait on long lines inside the tents to receive a handwritten seating assignment from each designer’s staff.
This year, IMG, producer of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, has partnered with Fashion GPS to change that process. Now, attendees need only click Yes or No to RSVP on Fashion GPS’ website, check in at a kiosk at the tents, and scan a barcode for a seating assignment.
“The barcode is pretty efficient since there’s no line now to check in manually with a press rep,” said Robert Cordero, editor of JCReport.com, an 8-year-old site that reports on global fashion trends. “Fashion is known as an industry of rapid change, but it’s been late to adopt technology until now.”
This past season’s shows still required you to print your ticket w/ the scanned barcode. Maybe by next season, Fashion week will become environmentally friendly and you can scan your barcode from your smartphone instead…who knows? (I guess we’ll see in February!)
