Francesca Liberatore fall/winter 2017/2018 collection New York Fashion Week, February 11, 2017, Skylight Clarkson in New York. These photos were taken from my seat.

Francesca Liberatore has outdone herself this season! Every season I look forward to viewing Francesca Liberatore’s collection at New York Fashion  Week. It is always inspired and fresh; yet completely wearable. For fall 2017, her collection has gone a step further. She has taken her collection and made it more luxurious for fall. I am in love!

For the fall/winter 2017/2018 season, Francesca Liberatore took her inspiration from Hyde Park. Not just Hyde Park, but two distinctly different Hyde Parks. One in London in the 1990s with a nod to iconic music group Oasis, and one in New York which is home to the library and residence of Franklin D Roosevelt. Love this!

The collection was filled with powerful stripes in shades of rich blood orange, brick red, magenta, lime, grey, and black which “harken a progress parade on the world’s stage.” There were also shades of champagne, ivory, and pewter. Liberatore used beautiful fabrications which includes velvet and embroidery. Her collection took inspiration from the powerful and popular; how their words can effect society, and how society can shape or destroy them. A nod to current affairs.

The navy and champagne ensemble pictured above was my favorite look from the runway. I felt like it not only embodied her show’s vibe, it had a romantic air about it which I love.

Michael Costello fall 2017 NYFW runway and nails

Michael Costello showed his fall/winter 2017/2018 collection at New York Fashion Week on February 9, 2017 at The Skylight Clarkson in New York. It was all about the “Enviable Vixon” who is basically “the coolest chick on the planet!”

The Michael Costello girl loves rock and roll, she takes center stage, is extravagant and has a magnetic charisma. When she walks into a room she commands everyone’s attention; and all eyes are on her. Costello’s fall 2017 collection is about this fabulous “Enviable Vixon” telling her love story which is sure to attract the attention of all her admirers.

The runway show was amazing! There was a 1970’s vibe to collection. I can picture the “Eviable Vixon” walking into Studio 54 and attracting the envy of every woman in the room; while every man wants her.

In order to compliment Michael Costello’s theme, and help make his collection shine, Essie created fabulous nails for the runway which are sure to be a hit this fall 2017 season. Below you will find tips and tricks for re-creating these fabulous nails at home.

Tadashi Shoji showed his fall/winter 2017/2018 collection at the Skylight Clarkson at New York Fashion Week on February 9, 2017. The collection was absolutely stunning!

There was a secret, vintage nightclub vibe to the collection which hearkened back to the British Invasion. Velvet, silk and sequins were rich, luxurious, and flowing as each model glided down the runway. The colors were equally rich, deep, and intriguing. There was intricate brocade, lace, and silhouettes. The overall aesthetic was divine. Love!

The purple, red and all of the brocade took my breath away. If you can spot the black pantsuit above, it is the ensemble calling my name. I need to plan a trip to London, find a secret nightclub, and wear that outfit. It is pure perfection.

Which look on the Tadashi Shoji fall 2017 runway captures your attention?
