Oh how I miss relaying my weekly musings to you, my dear readers!! It’s crazy what happens when life takes over . . . 4.5 weeks and counting until the big day (the adrenaline is already flowing );and, meanwhile, I’m in the midst of New York Fashion Week working away for DailyBuzz Style. Sadly my heart is just not into Fashion Week this season. My head is chock full of thoughts of succulents and white peonies, birch tree branches, antique looking table numbers, something blue, a certain long Marchesa gown, and on and on and on . . .
Today, at long last, however I was a able to steal an hour or two to partake in the fabulous circus at Lincoln Center, and was pulled in to the allure of all that is fashion week. For a few moments, once again, I was in it to win it, guns ablazing, in full fashion mode, no distractions allowed. The reason for this change of heart, so to speak: an invitation to experience a show, that of designer Mara Hoffman’s, from backstage, where I was able to witness and record the captivating process of the models getting prepped and ready to go ;and, in turn the vision of a collection coming to life.
Once I am back and settled in SF I will give you the full report on Mara’s presentation. For the moment here are a few pics. to keep you guessing .
I’m loving the tribal / Mexican / Aztec inspiration, the bright brights, the bold prints, and long, lean silhouettes, all of which seem to be emerging as early trends for Spring 2012.
