a look from the Rolando Santana show

On Sunday, I went to see the Custo Barcelona show. They used lots and lots of color, which is their signature style. According to their press release, they started out with a "clean" palette, with neutral colors and basic lines. However, as time progressed, "Custo Barcelona emerged in an explosive way: colors, prints, and graphics takes over splashing it all." I loved the mix of prints and colors. The collection was very fun, wild and quirky. "Warm dresses perfectly paired with graphic leggings and thick voluminous sweaters for men represent the key looks of the season." Below are a few of my favorite looks:On Tuesday, I went to see the Tibi show. The collection was heavily inspired by the sleek and modern simplicity of the 90's decade. According to its tip sheet, the pieces are "updated interpretation of American classics that are sophisticated, fresh and young are mixed with extreme elements for night in rich laces, appliques and Rococo style prints." I must say, this collection was one of my favorites this season; I loved the color palette and the garments were very girly, flirty, and chic. (I also spotted Olivia Palermo sitting next to Vanessa Hudgens!) Here are some of my faves (it was so hard just to select a few!):That same night, I was also invited to the Daniel Vosovic show. However, it was the same time as the Tibi show. I was torn - he was one of my favorite designers from Project Runway. Fortunately, The Eight Floor PR sent me photos from the night. Daniel Vosovic was inspired by the strength of the mid-19th century women and the control of the world of S&M. "The utilitarian aspects of both worlds collide and translate into a modern, contemporary aesthetic that allows women to exude both confidence and sensuality."Last night, I attended the Rolando Santana show. Sitting in second row, I was so excited that I wasn't able to take as many great photos - ironic, huh? Haha. (Although I managed to snap that amazing first picture you see in this post). I also spotted Alex from the Real Housewives of NY in attendance. Anyway, it was a beautiful collection. The models sported dark lipstick, and loved the mix of furs, sequined silks, and wools.I posted many more pictures in addition to videos on my personal Facebook page, you can request me as friend to view them :) Whew! What a week. A bit sleep deprived, but always so enjoyable! Tomorrow night I'll be attending a Couture Fashion Week show, so stay tuned for that :)

Great pics. The Tibi collection is my favorite out of this bunch. I'm very familiar with Custo, but their prints and colors are a little too much for me personally. It's interesting to see that they are capable of toning it down though (if only for a few looks).
