Feb 12, 2016  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

The hot topic of the season has been the idea of restructuring the classic Fashion Week model, and today Wes Gordon joined the ranks of designers forgoing the traditional runway.

As a smaller brand, it’s an opportunity to be mobile, do something different.”

Marissa Webb’s Everyday Runway Packs a Punch

Feb 12, 2016  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

At previous stages in her career, Marissa Webb has designed for J Crew and Banana Republic, so she has a talent for understanding what the everyday woman is looking for in a wardrobe. This was visible in her Fall 2016 collection, a line of simplistic separates that were created for practicality rather than flair. This isn’t to say the collection lacked appeal. On the contrary, most of the collection felt beautiful and stylish, but the streamlined, floor-length coats, windowpane plaid suits and chunky knit turtlenecks were intended for a more sophisticated palette.

Feb 10, 2016  |   Contributor: JustLuxe Team

It would be a mistake to think that major brands are the highlight of NYFW. Hidden amongst the Alexander Wangs and Ralph Laurens there’s an entire subcategory of up-and-coming names that are showcasing some truly conceptual designs. Katie Gallagher’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection, Veiled, is a monochromatic line of black silk, lambskin, buckskin, pony hair, velvet and lace that captures the originality that some of the more seasoned designers are lacking.

Feb 2, 2016  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Shown yesterday during New York Fashion Week: Men’s, Ooi's latest collection was inspired by the school boys of tomorrow, but nothing felt futuristic or kitschy, it was a down-to-earth look at what men might be wearing a few hundred years from now—or more realistically—next winter.

Jan 29, 2016  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Jean Paul Gaultier is good at putting on a show.
