Statement Blouses

Finally! warmer weather seems to be gracing the streets of New York, but in memoriam of all the really cool outfits I was managed to assemble during the frost, this look was by far my favorite. One of my favorite things to do with my clothing is layer, layer, and layer some more. The only excuse to do that effectively without looking like a marshmellow is during the colder seasons. Now as many of you know monochrome colors are my go to and are typically my safest bet when layering, however, with these pieces, I chose to try something new. One of my favorite new brands Klean Seoul, has an exquisite array of bold and bright colored pieces that I immediately was drawn to! I paired their copper top from the F/W collection, with a beautiful white ruffled top from sheinside, with mom jeans from zara and my favorite silver loafers from guava, my look was complete. Yes I know I know this all sounds like an odd color scheme but it would be better to show you the look than tell you, so here it is! 7539722268 “Code to import my old blog: 7539722268

New York Men’s Fashion Week F/W 17

New York Men’s Week kicked off on January 31st with the customary NYMD presentations at Dune Studios, featuring a plethora of promising designers such as Uri Minkoff, Robert James, Max N’ Chester, Krammer Stoudt, David Hart, Woodhouse, and many more. These talented designers brought a mixture of eccentric, grungy, urban, minimalistic and sporty vibes to their presentations.  The 70’s were making a comeback, from the likes of Todd Snyder, Thaddeus O’Neil, as well as the minimalistic edgy vibes of Loris Diran. Corduroy was definitely the statement comeback piece of the season, as I noticed that it made many a comeback from both NYMD and throughout some shows later on in the week. Statement pieces were also quite the staple this season as well. As always I wanted to go home with many a piece from every collection, but I will have to settle for waiting to purchase one of my own.

New Year | New Things

Happy New Year everyone! I wanted to ring in the new year in one of my favorite looks, from this past holiday season, the perfect ensemble to a holiday event, the ideal New Years Eve look, ect. These gorgeous pieces from Dear Freedom, immediately caught my eye because of the unique geometric patterns of the top and the edgy design of the white culottes. This look paired with my favorite pair of Charles and Keith white slip-ons  and lily- kit choker made for the ideal outfit!

Shoe Things | Spring St.

I have always been an avid admirer of the perfect low shoe, sneakers, flats you name it, if it doesn’t elevate my height and force me to walk like a new born gazelle, then I will wear it! So of course you can imagine my immediate joy at purchasing  a pair of unconventional white slip on sneakers from Charles and Keith. Now I know I may sound biased as I own a pretty decent amount of their pieces but, what I love about their shoes are that they set themselves apart from other shoes, in that they do not fit into the mold of standard everyday shoes in terms of what fits the standard. There are also a pair of flats that I can say were very aesthetically pleasing. The flats from their new velvet collection have a pointy toe with a really cool rounded heel, low enough that I can wear it everyday, but dressy enough, where I can wear it out on special occasions as well. Donned with a pair of oversized jeans and a white button down, I share with you how I went from casual with white slip-on’s to slightly dressy with flats with the same outfit. Trust me shoes relly do make the difference.

NYFW S/S 17

And so here we have it the passing of yet another season of New York Fashion Week, the spring/ summer edition, another season to feel inspired and renewed as many a designer deigned to share their creative minds with us yet again through their respective collections. This season was the season for color whether it be bright or minimal or even in between, it’s presence was noted. Designers such as Marchesa and Leanne Marshall, adopted very ethereal, looks this season and while Marshall kept the colors to lavenders, pinks, and taupes with the occasional whites and blues, and a myriad of colors the music from the runway set the tone for the show as it translated an otherworld like setting. Marchesa was an absolute dream the gowns were absolutely stunning as the show set an ambient tone, each look reflecting a fairy tale of sorts. Photographing gowns on the runway are probably my favorite images to capture and none were more runway and red carpet ready than Michael Costello. Jeremy Scott projected a vibrant seventies mod look, with vibrant pops of neon color. Our favorite snapchat filters came to life on the runways of Desigual, in ode to the latest social media craze. I have noted in previous posts my obsession with a good button down blouse and nobody does it better than Taoray Wang, her entire collection is a reflection of my personal style and it was an absolute pleasure to have the chance to cover her show once again. Pastels and minimalistic pieces were seen in the likes of Noon by Noor, Dennis Basso, Vera Wang and Cushnie et Ochs. This season I had the privilege of working with famed fashion illustrator and good friend Emily Brickel Edelson, co-founder and illustrator of CHIC SKETCH, who worked very closely with designer Nicole Miller to bring her collection to life through illustration, her work opened up Miller’s runway show online! With the incredible showing this season February couldn’t arrive any faster! And for those of you going through NYFW withdrawals fear not as London, Milan and Paris are still hosting their own fashion weeks, but if that isn’t enough and the excitement of New York during the fashion month is the only cure to your ails, then stayed tuned in February for the Fall/ Winter edition! Here are some of the images  captured from my adventures during NYFW spring/summer 2017, with special thanks to the respective designers.

FASHIONWEEK ESSENTIALS

Whether you’re on the go or just pressed for time, these must have essentials during the fashion month are the way to go! So during NYFW, my social media was flooded with questions on what my go to products/appliances are to survive the jungle that is fashion week, here are some of my picks that helped me get through the week!!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Sunglasses | SMOKE & MIRRORS  Earrings | RUE GEMBON  Headphone | SUDIO SWEDEN Watch | FJORD TIMEPIECES Oil Absorbing Sheets |CLEAN & CLEAR

My Lo and Sons camera bag was the real MVP during this especially hectic week, besides the fact that it is a camera bag for ladies, it was convenience in bag form, with a removable compartment to place both your camera and other necessities, the simplicity of carrying my camera with the stylish appearance of a handbag.

Next up were my Sudio Sweden Vasa Bla headphones, now when I mention convenience these headphones take the cake. Whenever I take photos my headphones tend to get tangled with my bag or my camera straps making it harder to access my phone, whilst detangling my headphones, but not these ones. The Vasa Bla headphones are wireless headphones that connect with your phone via bluetooth for up to 8 hours of studio quality sound with long battery life, they are extremely light and offers so much freedom when I’m taking photos, not to mention that it also comes with multiple ear sleeve sizes, so you don’t have to worry about your headphones slipping out!

A cool pair of sunglasses where do I even start? The right pair can go a long way , and add that extra “cool” factor to any outfit, of course this is especially beneficial when one is vying for those coveted, street style shots. My shades from Smoke and Mirrors were my token go to sunglasses.

Water is literally your best friend! I cannot express, how important it is to stay hydrated, during the week running from show to show, it is especially imperative that you carry something to small to snack on while traveling in between shows. In a majority of the venues, beverages were provided which put exhaustion to a halt but if you didn’t have the luxury of taking a breather carrying a bottle of water is the way to go!

Keeping track of time is of course the number one priority during the fashion month and what better way to tell time with style, with my silver Fjord timepiece, I am THAT person that tends to veer away from over the top,” loud ” colors when it comes to watches and this one is far from that, it’s that timepiece that goes with almost everything you wear!

Band aids, bobby pins and  a small compact brush go a long way and no they won’t all be used together, but for those of us that choose to wear our highest heels or break in those new pair of loafers you purchased specifically for the fashion month, (I am guilty of this) your band aid, (or band- aids) should and will be a constant companion during these trying times, trust me on this one ! Or just save yourself the trouble and invest in a pair of fast flats!

Google maps will never lead you astray, there will be the chance that many of the shows will be offsite, should you happen to take the subway or need to tell your uber where to go organizing where which show is and when will really help, having a planner to tell you what shows are when are where will alleviate so much unnecessary stress.

How could I forget! PHONE CHARGER! Or a portable one at that, has saved many a blogger/ photographer during the fashion month, granted that many of the venues have charging stations, but it just feels a lot better when you have your phone charging in your hand as opposed to waiting for it to do so. Anything can happen during fashion week and missing those Instagram or Snapchat moments can be disappointing.

Besides these essentials, there are many more that I cannot conjure up at the moment, but as a photographer, having an extra set of memory cards are a plus of course! These and many more are the way to go, so if you have the chance to set out to London, Milan, Seoul, Paris ect. or even right here in New York, for fashion week, these items are perfect!

CHARLES & KEITH | HUDSON PARK

Every summer I find myself creating a mental checklist of what I want to accomplish before the close of August and the commencement of the fall season. Slowly but surely I’ve become increasingly better at completing the tasks at hand, I’m a work in progress I know.. But this summer especially I have found myself delving into more and more photography projects whether it be men’s NYFW, or a project or even working, convenience for me has always been key. When I say convenience, I mean any and everything that will alleviate the minute hassles of being a photographer, for instance organizing my bag to better locate my things albeit I was looking for a bag that was effective yet attractive as well as practical for whatever outfit I choose to wear with it. With Charles and Keith I found exactly that, their beautiful shopper bag tote works as both a backpack and adjustable tote bag, and if that doesn’t exude convenience I don’t know what does. The shopper bag comes in both black and white, and knowing how much I love to have my bags go well with my outfits I of course went with black. My outfit was from DEZZAL online Photographer: Jeremy Mitchell of The Novelty Report

New York Men’s Fashion Week S/S 17

July 11th kicked off the third season of New York Men’s Fashion Week, and needless to say it did not disappoint. This season offered an array of variety from the sporty chic attire of Nautica and Parke and Ronen to the vibrant pop of pastels from the likes of Brett Johnson,  Zachary Prell, and John Elliott. Monochrome pieces made their appearances on the runways of Todd Snyder Max’n Chester and Carlos Campos.What stood out to me the most was the reintroduction of once known fads throughout many a designer, offering a combination of casual style with unconventional trends. What I especially loved was that so many of the pieces I saw,were ones that I would actually wear, and that could be worn by both genders. I am a huge fan of the perfect pair of trousers/chinos  and/or drawstring pants and saw all of the above in the likes of Zachary Prell, and many others. One of many breakout trends of the summer is the aforemented bomber jacket, that appeared in David Naman ect.. my favorite was a blue, pink and purple ombre’d bomber from Ricardo Seco whose vibrant metallic colors were a statement for his collection. Overall, this fashion week definitely delivered, every show/ presentation I was fortunate to cover, left me coveting at least one or two if not all of the pieces I saw. Take a look at the photos I took from the shows I attended!

Of Seventies and Summer | A.Kamera

Anybody who knows me and knows me well, knows that I have never liked to, “go with the flow” so to speak. Particularly when it comes to fashion, my personal style though it is still evolving has always been my own. Don’t get me wrong I pull inspiration from many an individual, a very easy thing to do, if you live in New York City, but I have always found myself, veering towards the, “old- fashioned” so to speak, vintage pieces and that classic cut look that seems to constantly follow me from my child hood. Leading into this seventies inspired look, with a bit of a modern twist that I put together. The earrings from HM was a last minute decision as I had even forgotten that I had purchased them, I noticed them peeking out my jewelry box and thought, ‘why not?’ a minute pop of color that seemed to effortlessly complete this seventies inspired look.

MADISON BOOTH |GRAND ARMY PLAZA

In lieu of final exams coming to a close and the burgeoning of Summer, I thought it would be the perfect time, (and weather) for a photo shoot, one in particular that I had  in mind when frost still coated the streets of NYC. With the temperature finally reaching the ideal for an outdoor shoot, it was go time. This week I photographed Madison Booth, in a shoot that we had been planning for the longest time. Having photographed Madison before I was especially excited to bring our ideas to life, in the beautiful streets of Park Slope.  Park Slope offers an array of scenic locations, and the Prospect Park area was especially perfect for the theme I had in mind. It worked hand in hand with the grace and poise that I was able to capture behind the lens.

SOHO IN SPRING

After what seemed like a never ending tundra that is New York City weather, the sun finally decided to grace us with warm weather, and what better way to do that with a fun photoshoot in soho with your best friend. Donned in head to  toe winter/ spring attire we took to the cobbled stoned streets of Lafeyette in SOHO with talented photographer Ivana Miric capturing every moment. We selected these outfits because of it’s winter/ spring versatility, adding on to that are my favorite go to statement jewelry pieces from Gramerci Designs, the watch of every minimalists dream from Marc Bale, and my black and gold specs from zerouv.

NYFW F/W 16

February 11th ushered in the first day of New York fashion week, bringing together the greatest minds, influencers and style gurus alike to one of the biggest weeks in fashion. This season I had the chance to go behind the scenes photographing from backstage to the runway, and streetstyle in between, and seeing the magic that is fashion week come to life. From 70’s themed style to eclectic patterns and the classic modern look, this season was definitely one to rival all others, and I am super excited to share my experience with you all. I first off want to give a big thank you to everyone that was apart of this amazing experience, for the designers for sharing their creative genius with all of us and allowing me to get a glimpse of the work that goes into producing a successful show, to my fellow photographers for showing me the ropes and sharing their knowledge, and of course the models who grace the runways and bring the designers’ vision to life. My experiences behind the scenes have molded my perception and created an even deeper appreciation for fashion week. Here are some of my favorite looks that I photographed from all the shows that I was fortunate enough to attend. (All photos taken by me.)
