So this year for fashion week, I spent the days taking in runway shows, attending showcases, and capturing content with my boo Comfort, Style Blogger and Writer of CNK Stylebook (check her site out, her content is BOMB.) Comfort and I met a little over a year ago, as we were both doing press coverage for a charity fashion event in May 2018. I always love attending events with Comfort because we’re both about our business and constantly thinking of ways to grow our brands while having a dope time in the process.

This year’s NYFW experience was a little different than my experience back in September, being that I spent most of last year’s fashion week running around backstage, styling and perfecting designers’ collections before they hit the runway, with the exception of attending a BOMB group show sponsored by Fashion Bomb Daily on my last day. But this time, I got the opportunity to get dressed, flick it up, and just take it all in while in the audience. Though I’m sure it won’t be long before I’m right back in full stylist mode chaos, this trip was just what I needed.

We watched severals shows, with a few of my favorites being Ron Ramos, who brought sexy suiting in vibrant colors to the runway, Out of Order, the brand that brought us some of the dopest streetwear I’ve seen in a while, as well as a live showcase by Landeros New York, in which models sported lush outerwear in rich colors and fabrics, slick patent leather pieces, and cool trousers, an aesthetic that was unmatched. For some of my fave show moments, check out my events & NYFW highlights on my styling page’s instagram.

One thing that I always try to do while attending a fashion show, is to be a student of my craft and really soak in the designer’s creativity by paying very close attention to detail. Everything from the color story and fabric range of a collection, to the models chosen, down to the way the stylist or designer has accessorized each look, really helps me be a better stylist. Studying the details, both big and small, allow me to see where fashion is going, in terms of trends, specific silhouettes, and just the overall culture.

I’m always on the look out for new styles that I want to try for myself, as well as some that I want to introduce to my clients and try on models. A few trends that I see emerging and making their way around for the upcoming seasons are dramatically oversized outerwear in eccentric shapes, suits and co-ords being done in vibrant colors such as magenta, royal blue, lime green and citrus, as well as patent leather separates. All of these are dope looks spotted on the runways to incorporate into your wardrobe for a look that’s ahead of the curve.

Shop our Looks  :  Comfort  and I both channeled slight 70’s vibes for our Day1 looks.

I always leave fashion week with a new found sense of creativity, and feeling so inspired. Whether working behind the scenes doing what I love, or watching it all take place, it’s always the best time for me to network, build connections, and get inspired. I already can’t wait to do it all again for September! What were some of you guys’ favorite designer collections this NYFW? Let me know in the comments!

          In this photo series, I wanted to capture the style and attitude of a woman with both around the way appeal, and high fashion qualities and taste. Her style is always bold and a tad sporty. I combined retro feels with modern day pieces to create an eclectic version of street style with vibrant prints, colors, and textures. Model Kayana Howard embodied the concept naturally and perfectly. Photographer Damon Rice captured the many layers of each look impeccably. Makeup Artist Ty Hubert created gorgeous cohesive yet clean makeup looks.

A few images of my fave look from my most recent editorial shoot where I was lead stylist and creative director. I love working with model Dominique because she can embody just about any character that I can dream up. Here, her look was inspired by "a style super hero" type of chick that I created in my head a few weeks back. The super hero mixes prints and textures impeccably and uses her clothing and accessory game to create interesting shapes and silhouettes on her body. She shows just the right amount of skin and she has just the right amount of edge. She's on a mission to share her gift of garb with the world, aspiring to help others reach their maximum style potential. So, I decided to call her the Sartorial Savior. Street style photographers Sky La Flame & Lord Geezuz did an amazing job capturing the look.
