Fierce Paris: Fall 2012 Shows

There was no mistaking the presence of strong, fierce, bold looks on the runway.  It showed women with strength and bravery.  Powerful women.

Get out there and walk with confidence. Amen!

Patchwork Paris – Fall 2012 Shows

It’s no secret that I do love patchwork. Mainly, I love it on quilts and throws and pillows. I haven’t been a big fan of it on apparel.

So, as I was looking at the fall 2012 Paris shows, I noticed that some of my very favorite designers were on the patchwork wavelength.

Patchwork on apparel done by these masters of design….yes!

Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week 1

I’ll admit it. I miss being in New York sometimes.  That doesn’t mean I would change anything about where I am right now.  It just means that I miss New York City and my friends there ( you know who you are) . Oh, and I miss being a designer. New York Fashion Week gets me every time.

So… I thought I’d share some of my favorite things from the week so far.

1. COLOR  I really can’t resist it.  Color just makes me happy.  The color combinations were inspiring.

1. M.Patmos  2. Nanette Lepore  3.  Tracy Reese  4. Diane Von Furstenberg  5. Narciso Rodriguez

2. PRINT   I am so excited about the prints I’ve seen.
