If embracing strong color blocking and tailored stripes similarly to those of the 60′s are eye catching to you, then the Michael Kors 2013 Spring line is the way to go! The clothing kept a simple sleek style while incorporating popular classic looks form the 60′s that are catalogue fashionable today. Navy blue was the dominate color of the show, along with red, green, whites and there were pieces in the line that were a majority of bright yellow.
Consisting largely of preppy rugby stripes on bodysuits, pullovers, trousers and coats, this collection was heavy on the stripes yet delivered some of the Michael Kors constructive silhouettes that you know and love. Wondering which celebs you may spot wearing these looks next season? We’re betting on Ellen DeGeneres, since she has the style to wear select looks found in this fashion show as well as Anne Hathaway. What do you think?

One of my favorite highlights during New York Fashion Week had to be the HP Style event featuring an exclusive preview of Project Runway winner Anya Ayoung-Chee’s Spring runway collection. HP was back in New York for Fashion Week helping Anya Ayoung-Chee unveil her first collection since winning Project Runway Season 9 and the Intel & HP design challenge.
Anya gave guests a personal tour of her new Spring 2013 collection - “Carnival of Colour”. The collection, inspired by the eclectic Harlem area of New York City features beautiful bursts of colorful jumpers, floor length gowns & jackets.
Talk about a fun afternoon filled hors d’oeuvres and drinks at Morimoto NYC! Top fashion bloggers and stylists came together to fuse technology and fashion by styling her collection on HP’s newly announced HP PCs and designing custom textiles with HP TouchSmart PCs like the designers on Project Runway.
“Don’t I look completely engulfed in the designing process? This is serious business!”
This was my first time ever designing textiles, specifically using the HP TouchSmart PC and I have to say, it was super easy and super fun. I decided to create a D&D inspired textile using gold & black colors…After creating my design, I got a chance to print it out and create my very own custom Starbucks tumbler similar the this one below…
In addition to textile design, I got a chance to style a few of Anya’s “Carnival of Colour” looks via Polyvore for a chance to win an HP Pavilion dv6 PC with Beats Audio. (Check out all the styled looks on Polyvore via the #HPStylesAnya hashtag.)
The fun continues well after the event, right now you can check out the textile designs on HP’s facebook page, all of the styled looks on Polyvore as well as more photos from the event too. Looking for more of Anya’s collection? Check out Anyaayoungchee.com

If you’re anything like me, the moment you step into 5th Ave and into Bergdorf-Goodman’s you feel overwhelmed from the sheer force of luxe fashion royalty gracing each floor (then you take a look a a price tag or two and reality quickly sets in…) However, there is no doubt that no other retailer can match the luxury that Bergdorf’s provides thousands of New Yorkers, tourists & foreign clients daily.
Including a collection of 175 of its directors, clients, employees, designers and wannabe designers share their experiences and fondest memories of New York’s finest retailer of glamour, sophistication and fashion.

When it comes to effortless nighttime glamour, fashion stylist-turned designer Rachel Zoe knows the ends and outs! Using a variety of shades from orange, light blue, ivory and more each look represented her classic “Zoe” style from the crown with stylish hats to the floor length skirts and gowns.
Most shirts and pant suits were monochromatic in look and flowy in all of the right areas. One of the looks had a scarf tied around the head instead of a hat which made the entire outfit stand out from the fleet of fedora paired fashions.
Each look expressed an element of 70′s style to the fullest and were quite unique. Be on the look out for more celebrities and fashionistas tailoring their looks with a certain Rachel Zoe flair and chic look.

When you think of the jungle, rarely do you imagine animal prints billowing in chiffon down a runway. However, Carlos Miele’s Spring 2013 collection was just that, “a step into a hallucinatory jungle”. Many of the luxe print evening gowns were accented with heavy beads, stones & fringe for as far as the eye could see. The use of charmeuse, chiffon, color and patterns in Miele’s collection took you on a journey through a safari with looks reminicient of leopards, zebras and even modelesque giraffes.
The looks not only exudes animalistic glamour but with colors present such as blue, green, black and ivory this collection could be considered a tribal as collections can come. I could definitely look forward to fashionable celebrities like Cameron Diaz and Solange Knowles wearing these jungle-inspired designs next season but with some of his more elegant designs – it’s quite possibly that you’ll see a few of these daring looks on a red-carpet near you come awards season next year.
