Backstage at VPL
ANDY & DEBB
This was my first fashion week. Unfortunately, I was only able to make it to two shows thanks to my class schedule. Oh, college, you botched my fashion week:[
Other shows I missed included Derek Lam (AUGHHHH) and Odd Molly (DOUBLE AUGHHH)
On the bright side, the two shows I did get to see were wholly spectacular and super fun. First was VPL, which is a line that I have always loved since Victoria Bartlett is absolutely fantastic with her lingerie and sportswear and knits. I wore a bustier over a t-shirt to the show to honor her aesthetic (which worked, she saw me and before I could open my mouth to pour praise over her she was like, "OH! I love what you did with that bustier!! It's so charming!" Score.). The show was fantastic, but I decided to only post backstage photos since you an see the whole collection here. You can't go wrong with lingerie-inspired pieces. The necklaces were made by Crumley, but I hesitate calling them necklaces, they were more like neckgear.
AND I MET OLIVIER ZAHM!!! I LOVE THIS MAN!! You guys, he was SOO nice and he liked my outfit, I nearly died shaking his hand. Is it weird that after the show I pretty much stayed around jsut so i could meet him? Yeah i know I'm a dork.
Later followed Andy & Debb, an amazing line out of NYC and Seoul. Andy & Debb's concept is basically to bring together minimalism and romance, and they do it quite, quite well I must say. Each piece translated SO well into both daywear and eveningwear. I loved the netted dress and skirts, they reminded me of victorian wallpaper. Pastels draped the models in forms of ultra-chic tailored pieces or minimal, backless dresses. I was totally inspired by the blazers with multiple panels.
Can I please be fabulously wealthy so I can surround myself with rows of mannequins wearing everything I saw at NYFW? No? Oh, alright I guess I'll just have to stay in school then.
