This February I was lucky enough to attend several shows during NYFW. I was fortunate to have my dear friend Melissa (@melissasoldera her Instagram) in from Montreal and we attended both Rosie Assoulin and Naeem Khan. For the day, I wore a Prada camel coat and paired it with a Mr&Mrs Italy fur collar, a Burberry belt, my favorite metallic blue Gucci Marmont Pumps and a Prada Cahier top handle bag in velvet. While Melissa opted for a pale pink coat over a By Malene Birger dress with classic suede pumps and a Fendi Back to School Bag in burgundy. INSERT OUTFIT PICK
The first presentation of the day was Rosie Assoulin, an up and coming designer who has found fans in numerous celebrities such as actress January Jones, Bond girl Naomie Harris and director Greta Gerwig along with blogger Leandra Medine Cohen. Rosie’s presentation brought both color and dramatic silhouette to daywear pieces while emphasizing bold prints and avante garde shapes in evening wear (that would pair perfectly accessory is a Bottega Veneta Knot Clutch from LNS)

Our last show of the day before we both ran off to business meetings was Naeem Khan, a designer known for lavish evening wear and embroidered day dresses. Melissa and I were able to get a Bird’s Eye view of the runway. The collection opened with heavily embroidered velvet tracksuits that would look at home on any supermodel and would pair perfectly with an embellished Fendi Peekaboo from LNS (INSERT GREEN MINI PEEKABOO OR LARGE BLUE PEEKABOO NEXT TO LOOK #1 From Vogue)
Next down the runway came a line of heavily embellished and embroidered evening dresses for which Khan is so well known along with beautifully embroidered suits that paired with the right bag (a Gucci mini Dionysus in Velvet from LNS) make the transition from day to night a breeze.
