Sep 10, 2013  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

If so, I don’t think Mara Hoffman got the message. Her Spring 2014 collection is so saturated with every color of the rainbow that it makes every other runway show seem cold and unfeeling in comparison.... Read More

Young Designer Creates a Buzz at New York Fashion Week

Sep 17, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh  |  1 Comment

If ever there were a young, up-and-coming luxury designer to watch, it’s Mathieu Mirano. The Manhattan native is a mere 21 years old — but don’t let that steer you away. With already two collections under his belt, his latest is inspired by dinosaurs, but the designs are anything but immature. His use of fossil fabrics combined with intricate detail resulted in a show of the utmost sophistication. Spectators were even left in awe of the luxe look the designer was able to produce with one bizarre material.... Read More
