My second, and last, day of NYFW brought me to three very different shows from the uber-feminine, glamorous Jill Stuart to the playful, goddess-inspired Son Jung Wan and the quirky, futuristic Rafael Cennamo. My fashion week began and ended on a presentation, which felt very congruent and wrapped everything up perfectly. The glass of champagne courtesy of Mr. Cennamo was the ideal way to celebrate the end of an incredible weekend.
*I apologize, but my photos from this day are not the best. I'll be a lot better next fashion week!*

This show was a perfect start to my Saturday as it was filled with beautiful fabrics, feminine silhouettes and a muted color scheme. Imagine a lot of old-Hollywood glamour and an almost bedroom-esque feel. I adored the champagne belted trench above and the stunning gold sequin gown. The pale pinks were gorgeous as well, and though the collection exuded sexiness, it was definitely kept PG-13 to appeal to Stuart's audience. Full show here. All photos below are mine.
|Jill Stuart knows her neutrals. In love with that champagne belted trench.|
|Nightgown or ballgown? Either way it is gorgeous.|
|Kind of in love with this dress|
|Such beautiful neutrals in this collection.|
|So Old Hollywood (ps please note the awesome neon pumps on my friend Ms. Arienne Thompson in the front row!)|
|This dress works on the runway and in the bedroom, too.|

|I loved the wearability of so many of the pieces in this collection. Who doesn't want to rock this on an early Summer day?|
|The ombre shades made for unexpected variety throughout the show.|
|The details on this top were so ornate, yet tastefully done.|
|This twist on peplum keeps the trend interesting and fresh.|
|This looks like the perfect outfit to wear to a rock concert.|
|Definitely one of my favorite pieces in the show. The colors, the cut, the way it moved, everything was perfect.|
|I don't even remember this piece, to be honest, but when I saw the picture it felt really representative of Wan's attention to the details.|

My last show of #NYFW was the perfect ending to an out of this world weekend, with the minimalistic meets futuristic Japanese-inspired collection from Rafael Cennamo. The glam mood was set with the dimmed purple lighting and champagne being served, and the out-there models wore very structured gowns varying from red carpet worthy ball gowns to cocktail attire. I don't really think I'd ever have an opportunity to wear designs like these, but I was a bit taken with the snow princess-like ball gown above on the left. It was simply stunning. See a short video of the collection here. All photos below are mine.

|How much do you love this structured take on peplum?|
|Not a fan of the bottom, but I love the top!|
|For some reason this dress gives me evil rose garden vibes. I don't even know what an evil rose garden is.|
|Doesn't this have a Mad Men vibe?|
|Sexy in a poofy cupcake way.|
|Perfect end to the perfect weekend.|
Well this wraps up my NYFW coverage for now, and I feel so blessed to have experienced the whole thing. It was at times overwhelming, breathtaking and (excuse the corny cliche) an absolute dream come true. I have thought about being inside those tents for a long time now, and to have actually made it happen, well I can't ask for anything more, except maybe to be back in February :) Here's hoping!
