Chris Benz’s Garment District studio is a magical place. Just as quirky and colorful as the clothing, and the designer himself.

One could spend hours browsing the art work, and knick knacks displayed throughout the workspace.

Like his past collections, Chris Benz’s Resort 2013 offerings were bright, fun, and print heavy. It’s easy to see why this young designer is one of my very favorites in all of NYC!

Chris’ trademark pink hair. We bonded over the trials and tribulations of having brightly colored hair. (Mine was partially purple, that day.)IMG_6047
I’m convinced Chris Benz is one of the nicest designers currently working in fashion.

I also got a quick peek at Chris’ S/S 2013 inspiration board. What I saw was gorgeous, and very exciting. Which reminded me why his collections are consistent favorites of mine, every single fashion week.

Rachel Comey Resort 2013 Photo Shoot: Behind the Scenes

A few weeks ago, I was invited to take a behind the scenes look at Rachel Comey’s Resort 2013 collection photo shoot. Now that everything is officially public, I can share my photos here!

The hair and makeup were pure “natural beauty”. Which helped compliment the gorgeous, fun prints Rachel Comey is known for.

The perfect, wavy hair-do.

I was surprised by the fun sprinkling of ultra bright colors into the Resort collection. And the addition of denim!

Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013

IMG_2051

One of the 8million reasons I love Oscar de la Renta’s shows–they keep me on my toes during the “off-season” from fashion week. Things seem quiet, and them bam! Time for another Oscar show.

Yesterday’s Resort show showcased what I would now say is currently my favorite OdlR collection. Yes, I say that about every collection, but that’s the point! After years of designing, the man understands the true meaning of perfection. And when you can create something new and inspiring, and re-invent yourself 5+ times a year, you are in my opinion, a true design genius.

I always know when I truly love a collection when it decimates my vocabulary skills. Suddenly, I forget all adjectives but gorgeous/beautiful/pretty/amazing and start repeating myself like some sort of fashion-crazed parrot, who has just learned to speak.

But truly, the show *was* beautiful as always. I — along with a handful of other photographers once again “live Pinned” the before, during, and after show happenings on Pinterest. You can see the results here. Below, some of my favorite images, along with a few exclusives that weren’t on Pinterest. 😉
