Rebecca Minkoff is an American fashion designer and industry leader in accessible luxury apparel and accessories. She is best known for her iconic handbags that are subtly edgy yet timeless. The designer is also an inspiration to all girls who aspire to work in the fashion industry. Minkoff lived out her own version of the American dream at the young age of 18 when she moved to New York City to pursue fashion design. Now, she leads a global lifestyle brand and is an active member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Minkoff’s Fall 2014 collection stays true to her brand by being accessible and inspirational to women with all styles from all walks of life. There is notably an infusion of menswear in the collection, however Minkoff made the looks feminine with pops of color and accessories. Metallic tops and bottoms and trench coats of varying silhouettes were other stand outs from the show.
Nicole Miller is an American fashion designer known for creating modern, refined, and feminine apparel. Miller is highly trained in fabric manipulation and classical techniques of couture, both of which are signatures of her designs. Crafting stunning all-black looks has also become part of Miller’s signature style, and the black looks from her Fall 2014 collection are some of my personal favorites. What girl doesn’t love a fabulous black dress or perfectly paired black skirt and top? There are three other looks that were standouts from Nicole Miller’s Fall 2014 show: the leather studded mini skirt, the knee length plum fur vest, and the peacock prints (the peacock dress pictured above is my personal favorite).
REMEMBER! I’ll be watching many of the shows streaming LIVE on the Mercedes Benz site and LIVE Tweeting during the shows. After the show ends, I’ll post a clip of the final walk on my Instagram, so be sure to follow me on Twitter and Instagram @cmcross (or in the right sidebar!) for all things NYFW.
