NY Bridal Week got off on a very sexy start Thursday with THEIA's Fall 2016 Bridal collection. Designer Don O'Neill's inspiration this season was the sultry spirit of 1920s opium dens. What I love about how O'Neill designs his collections is that he considers his theme both aesthetically and...

The dancing queens came down the runway at Reem Acra's spring 2014 fashion show. Metallic gold halter dresses, bared shoulders, bugle beaded starbursts brought back memories of Studio 54 for a generation of fashion fans who probably were probably never even there. Never mind, the glamour of...

The Blonds took you down the rabbit hole for NY Fashion Week for fall 2016. My favorite designers of over-the-top glam diva looks brought lots of pink, Marilyn Monroe and dazzling Preciosa crystals to the runway at Milk Studios. If you have ever seen a pop star (like, any of them) and...

Another entry into fall's 1970's luxe glam trend. Reem Acra's fall 2015 collection at NY Fashion Week was inspired by the bohemian and Gothic queens of the decade. There were coats and dresses of crushed velvet or lace. The palette ranged from textured blacks to cool rose and metallic silver...
