New York Fashion Week 5 & 6

Cocaine Princess here.

Day 5

Carolina Herrera presented her collection on Monday. An original score, Capriccio for Carolina, recorded with the London Contemporary Orchestra served as background music. The Venezuela-born designer used fur in her collection by and dyed them to the colors of rich green and deep violet.

Pieces included fur as a bib at the front of a black turtleneck, at the cinched waist of a satin jacket and along the neckline of a strapless cocktail dress.

Many of her dresses featured high necks and cinched waists, with attention drawn to shoulders capped in black velvet or encrusted with jewels.

Hairstyles were very 1940s inspired and the makeup was kept to a minimal. To the right is the current "IT" model of the fashion world, Cara Delevingne.

To the left, Carolina Herrera who said, "my collection is for the woman of today who likes to be dressed up... Women are sometimes afraid of being called elegant or glamorous." (I for one am not afraid!!)

Day 6:

The hottest ticket in town for New York Fashion Week AW 2013-14 was the Marc Jacobs show. Marc presented his collection. The Australian group Tame Impala's song "Elephant" was the official song to play as models appeared on the runway. It was all about seventies with poodle hair,and retro prints.inspiration for Marc by Marc Jacobs. They say a picture says a 1000 words so I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. The accessories in particular the handbags bags aren't too bad but other than that I wasn't feeling the collection.
