Me, wear velvet...NEVER! Well, never came....
It was day3 of NYFW and I was not about to let the snow deter me from wearing one of my originally designed pieces. My clothing line LAPOSHE has been on hold over the pass couple years with a break for graduate school, adjusting to a new country, starting a new life and a new job...the list goes on, but it's time to get back to the basics and so I decided to get into designer mode and create a few outfits specifically for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
I fell in love with this velvet fabric the moment I saw it. One of the major trends seen on the runways for Spring 2015 was velvet. Donna Karan, Nina Ricci and Tommy Hilfiger all had it as a main inspiration in their 2015 collections. There is a certain luxurious and sophisticated feel to it that keeps us going back for more. I particularly loved the richness and regality of this royal blue color but wanted to do something more casual and sporty. After going back and forth, I decided a chic "sports-luxe" jumpsuit would be perfection for Fashion Week. But, then the challenge with the frigid snowy weather was, how to layer it so the jumpsuit wasn't lost under layers of protection.
I wore a turtleneck from Vince under the jumpsuit, a Rhyme Los Angeles tweed moto vest with hints off green and blue layered over it, and my a sleek Chanel jacket as another layer. Our curated gemstone "Catherine" necklace added a little glitz (on the webstore this week), and Aldo ankle booties and a felt fedora by David & Young completed the look.
