Happy Monday Fashion Femme Fatales and Gents! It’s that time of year – New York Fashion Week. This is it’s last season with Mercedes-Benz as official sponsor and final time at the Lincoln Center. Preggers belly and all, you know I had to experience all of the upcoming fashion for later this year. I spent my Valentine’s Day morning at the beautiful presentation of New York-based designer Jay Godfrey’s fall 2015 collection.
Check out this beautifully tailored collection filled with suitings, embellished tweeds, modern ultrasuedes, and metallic accented jerseys. When I asked designer Jay Godfrey what was his main inspiration he said – in short – tailoring meets dressmaking. In fact, the mood board (love those) for this collection referenced 1970s YSL, British tailoring mavericks like Tommy Nutter and Ozwald Boateng, and icons like Sex Pistols manager Malcolm Mclaren. What better way to spend V-Day than with clothes made with love? What really made my day was Godfrey touched my pink fuzzy sweater saying, “I like this!”
Look out for my YouTube special episode on this presentation coming soon!
