With New York Fashion Week in full force right now, it is important to keep in mind just how much work and effort goes into the impeccable outfits and the gorgeous models that display each intricate piece of clothing. That being said, we often forget that behind the scenes a lot goes on as well. A new U.S. based beverage company known as World Waters has announced the launch of a new drink, WTRMLN WTR, which became a pertinent part of New York’s Fashion Week when it sponsored The Line NYC at the Highline Hotel.
The cool drink is almost a fashion accessory in itself, with it’s precious pink tone, packed with watermelon, a pinch of lemon juice and chock full of anti-oxidants that make those models shine even brighter than they would normally. The company hopes to influence individuals when it comes to making healthy choices and let’s face it, if it gets us closer to looking like a model straight out of fashion week, then sign us up!
For more information on this chic drink check out WTRMLN WTR’s site.

Winter is here and we finally get to bring out our (California-ized) winter wardrobe. But what makes me excited is to pair these stylish outfits with equally stunning winter-style make up. This season we are seeing a lot of dark colors, deep reds, dark purples, and our personal favorite: black. Be daring this winter!

The iconic pink outfit worn by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis still remains one of the most well known outfits that helped pave the way for classic fashion trends. Yesterday marked the 50-year anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, in which Jackie sported the infamous pink ensemble. That historic outfit now sits in the National Archives and rumor has it the late Mrs. Kennedy herself requested it not be shown for another hundred years in order for the dress to not become a spectacle. Though we’ll never get to see the dress that has so shaken the fashion industry, pictures will have to do.

This week at the Magic Trade Show hosted in Las Vegas, the men’s market has come a long way and frankly, it’s about time . The industry has exploded in recent years, as said by Senior Trend Analysis, Tim Bess, there are rapid changes in technology. We are seeing performance fabrics and active wear in the designer market. Well tailored merchandise is taking the limelight and men consumers are under the impact of this powerful attraction. We see slim fits, classic seasonal fabrics, and a dark saturated color palette. The Doneger Group’s Mobility in Menswear presentation prior to the Magic/Project Trade Show on Monday conveys this overriding theme of tailored clothing and technology for the Spring season. Each look in the presentation comes together and embodies the quintessence of class. We are looking forward to more innovating influences menswear can bring while staying true to their simplistic nature.

As soon as the stores on Fifth Avenue carried her size, her mom would drive her into the city for shopping at Henri Bendels, Bergdorf’s and Barneys to name a few. As a teen, Nirvana ruled the radio so she turned to “the village” to perfect her grunge style, scoping out the local vintage stores as well as Patricia Field’s flagship, on East 18th street. There she would spend hours trying on, accessorizing, creating… hence a stylist was born.Her love for anything “fashion” carried her throughout her life. Dara Michelle studied fashion design at Parsons School of Design and after college worked atCotton Incorporated, on Madison Avenue in New York City, as a trend forecaster where she was paid to shop and predict the trends for upcoming seasons. There, Dara Michelle would present the trend forecast to a room full of designers whose upcoming collections all began with her words. Her playful approach to fashion leaves her friends and clients enjoying the “getting ready part” as much as the actual date or event. Why do her clients love her? Dara Michelle pushes her clients to try new things and experiment with trends while still staying true to themselves.“Style is how you feel, how you speak, how you move, how you live and your clothes should reflect that,” says Dara MichelleEasily navigating through a wardrobe or a collection, Dara Michelle uses her talents to consistently create looks that are styled to perfection! As seen on Miami NBC and additional style broadcast segments, Dara Michelle Style is known throughout the South Florida community for professional styling, personal shopping and trend forecasting.

There’s something about symmetry in an outfit that generates a refined, contained situation that seems too restricted. Especially during the summer. Summer is about the wild life, the imbalanced freedom in your clothes, because lets face it, you’re not even wearing any! As we hit the peak of the heat, switch up your summery boho maxis for a cool asymmetrical skirt. The asymmetrical skirt is contemporary, futuristic at times, and a modern best friend for any edgy fashionista. It’s time to practically obsess over the imbalance!
