12 February 2015 has finally arrived. I'm sure for those who are involved in Fashion Week feel excited but nervous in the same time. I, myself in Malaysia feel the same like you too. Again...This year, I feel very grateful and thankful that my local loyal readers able to observe a pinch of New York Fashion Week via live stream from my blog. I always love New Yorker style everything so inspirational even on the street to its skyscrapers. After 6 months of blogging, I guess; I'm on the right path and connecting to the right circle from all around the world. Recently, I've received an unpleasant message from anonymous regarding the way I write my articles. I've my own personal reasons and I'll never explain to an anonymous with negative comments. It never stop me from what I passion in. Okay. Let's put aside the bad negative vibes and continue our discussion about Fashion. I'm sure everyone feel excited the opening day of Fashion Month. I, Myself keep on guessing what will be in, stay or out this season. My prediction for this season Fall/Winter key trends; more textures, something unique & fresh and versatile. Not that so precise or complicated because I prefer something easy but outstanding for windy and snowy season.
I start my NYFW observation with BCBG MAXAZRIA show. Honestly, BCBG MAXAZRIA show were superb and breathtaking. Once more Lubvio succeeded showing her capability to turn something cultural and bohemian onto another level of style. Based on what I've observed from the show, Lubvio presenting her BCBG collection more to intricate and exquisite embellished details with layered silhouettes this season. From BCBG's beautiful oversized turtleneck shirt & dresses, silk BCBG tunics and poncho shapes, cropped trousers, flowing dresses, oversized coats with intricate details to BCBG sassy fur-trimmed jackets partner it with leather over the knee boot and sleek clutch; hit on the runway. Overall, I love the hard and soft elements in each of Lubvio's designs; its well-balance the whole look. Simply très chic.
I remembered the first time I saw Zimmermann collection back few years ago there few similarity like Chloe. Something sweet but unique.

It was refreshing to see something retro in a modern twist.
One of New York favourite designer, Jason Wu presented his FW'15 collection on the 2nd Day of New York Fashion Week. I always adore Jason's artwork. This season Jason come out with something sleek yet fierce in beautiful materials like luxurious fur, silk and cashmere. Most of his designs were well-tailored with a twist of modern-classic.

I ended my fashion week observation with true essence of NYC; Marc Jacobs. I'm big fan of Marc Jacobs from his diamond days with Louis Vuitton until today. It's one of my biggest dream to attend MJ's Fashion Show. I always love MJ's unique artwork and it's not easy to predict what he will present every season for his show. This season Marc Jacobs presented his FW collection with a beautiful combination as his main inspiration. Great inspiration of Victorian, 40's era sexiness with a little bit of gothic-punk turn its to something strong and unique. I loved the materials that Marc choose like sheer chiffon, silk, lace, metallic brocade to mink; simply exquisite. From Marc Jacob's beautiful coats with fur lapels, fitted dresses, A-line pleated skirts and dresses, tailored belted jackets and suits, luxurious fur jackets to Marc's amazing sheer lace dresses with appliqué details and completed the whole collection with gloves and patent leather boots and shoes.
