Met Gala 2015: Red Carpet Photos

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute gala, also known as the “Oscars of the fashion world” has come and gone once again. This year’s theme was “China: Through the Looking Glass” – the exhibition of the same name (curated and organized by longtime MET curator Andrew Bolton) looks at China’s influence on western fashion and opens this month.

There was glamour, there was edginess, and there was (of course) ridiculousness on the red carpet. All courtesy of celebrities, models, designers and anyone else who was either a guest or paid the hefty sum of $25,000 for a ticket!

PS. Shoutout to the fabulous Chiara Ferragni, who was a guest of Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa, for making fashion history by being the first blogger ever to attend the MET gala!

Farewell Bryant Park

The end of New York Fashion Week on Thursday also marked the end of the tents at Bryant Park, which had been the centre of fashion week since 1993. Tommy Hilfiger was the last to show his collection at the tents before they came down, marking the end of an era. Beginning in September, NYFW will take place at Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park, after outgrowing the iconic tents. It’s unfortunate that some of us never got to experience fashion week at Bryant Park, but the show must and will go on.. this time in a larger (and potentially better?) location.

Showing at Bryant Park has been a major part of the fashion world for us. The tents have been an amazing venue, but things in fashion and the city change – we hope that Lincoln Centre will be as wonderful an experience.  — Mark Badgley & James Mischka



Look Back at NYFW

Although NYFW already passed, here is a look at my favourite collections for Fall/Winter 2010-2011. Included are DVF, G-Star Raw, Alexander Wang, DKNY, Michael Kors, and Lacoste. Unfortunately, although I love Marc Jacobs I wasn’t too impressed with either of his collections (Marc Jacobs or Marc for Marc Jacobs). Perhaps next time.
