Tuesday at NYFW was a whirlwind. I went to a total of seven, count that SEVEN shows. Dumb, dumb me. I should have limited myself to five shows but it was my first NYFW and tried to do it all. Really though it wasn’t too terrible with a double espresso here and there from the convenient coffee bar at Lincoln Center but I was hurting at 5pm in between shows.
Post Collina Strada was an opportune time for Lindsay Pattan, Sarah Stallmann and myself to get some much needed coffee and snacks before we headed to Swiss Institute to see the Spring 2015 Cynthia Rowley presentation.
Walking into the Swiss Institute was eye opening. This was a real show with PR girls at the front checking people in with their iPads and hustling people into the presentation line, which was chalked full of media. We were guided to walk up onto the viewing platform where we spotted Whitney Port and Sarah Stallmann was interviewed by VougeTV– badass. I love the presentations because the photo opportunities are fantastic. If you’ve been following along on my NYFW adventures, photos have all been my own unless noted. But, that will soon change as I get into the traditional runway shows.
Cynthia Rowley Spring 2015 was a mix of bold floral prints, refined active wear and mod 60’s/70’s tent dresses. I’m so happy designers are picking up on the mod vibe. Hello, Twiggy! The mix of tent-like silhouettes, floral prints and lace up shoes had me head over heals. It was hard to miss the golden helmet in the presentation, which was the pinnacle of the lux gym garments presentenced along side the spring daywear. I can see that helmet fitting in nicely with my cycling wear- stylish, GOLDEN and very practical. Spring 2015 will bring mod frocks and I’m all about that.
After the Cynthia Rowley presentation I was on my own to catch a ride to the tents at Lincoln Center, where Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week holds it down, to see the Spring 2015 Pamella Roland show.
Stay tuned for my favorite looks from the Spring 2015 Pamella Roland show up next. Until then.
