New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 was a blast. So many designers like Marc Jacobs, Erin Fetherston and Anna Sui are drawing inspiration from vintage fashion. Did you see these shows? I absolutely loved them. Red Lips and Blue eyeshadow are huge for Spring, popping up at almost every show from Jason Wu to DVF. European visiting designer Givenchy is opening a new store in NYC and both the makeup looks and designs for the show did not disappoint, drawing inspiration from one of my favorite couture shows, Fall 2010.
The shows have moved from the Lincoln Center to West 33rd street. Grunge is in, the glamour was high and the street fashion was fresh. I really enjoyed mixing modern and vintage looks with trending beauty looks. Below is a sampling of my looks and press for the NYFW SS 2016 shows.
I was thrilled to be featured in Vogue.com's Phil Oh's Street Style: New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 Ready-to-Wear. The press photography outside of the show have a lot of competitive energy and it can be quite an experience. When I met Phil Oh, I was surprised because he is very quiet and polite. You would never guess he is Vogue Contributor's @MrStreetPeeper.
I wore a Vintage 1940s Dress from Wildfell Hall Vintage, a Vintage Upholstery Handbag from Amarcord Vintage Fashion, Vintage bangles also from Amarcord, Sunglasses from Miu Miu and Vintage Boots. Press features Pop Sugar Accessories and WWD What The Are Wearing, Instagram shot from @mgyoungphotography.
This season is all about floral printed dresses, upholstery fabrics and mod booties, shades of maroon and deep green.
For my second look I wore a Dress from Anna Sui from the Spring 2014 collection with an added
Pussy Bow Ribbon, a Vintage Coat, Vintage Dolce and Gabbana Shoes and a Botkier Hand Bag. Press from Vogue China, Racked, WWD and Glamour.
Again trending this season are deep greens and maroons, mini skirt lengths, patterned coats, platform shoes and pussy bows. For makeup, a clean face with a dark bold lip.
Look three is all vintage, but with the right hair and makeup, its easy to make it feel modern. Press was received from Vogue Russia and Vogue Italia.
I shot a few quick pictures of myself on the street in this look. Trench coats this season should be anything but black or beige. Play with a chic 70s vibe.
Vintage Dolce and Gabbana Dress with a Vintage Handbag and Shoes from Uggs. I paired this odd maxi length dress for a fun play on proportions with shoes to meet at the gap. I styled it with a Vintage Scarf tied in a Pussy Bow and Vintage earrings that took on a very punk feel. For my makeup I had fun with a bright orange cat eye.

Try maxi dresses, dresses with pussy bows and colored eyeshadow for Spring and Fall.
