The last day of this New York Fashion Week meant that I just had to wear my absolutely favourite Christopher Kane dress. I had always been such a huge fan of his designs since the unveiling of his first catwalk collection in Spring 2007 and it just astounds me that each and every new collection be brings out is more covetable than the previous (saying that, I would still die to have one of those neon and Swarovski belted bandage dresses - for any potential future boyfriend out there, track down one of those beauties for me and I have a small little spot waiting in my heart for ya, just sayin').
This Autumn/Winter 2014 show was no normal collection for Kane. Multi layered boasting all sorts from sharply tailored work wear and wool overcoats in the prettiest of pastel pinks to signature chunky knits with girlie frill and ruffle details. However this collection was a combination of rugged urban as well as his usual feminine style mixing almost bin-bag like nylon pieces accented with sumptuous mink fur. With only touches of his usual floral elements, Kane played on a botanical elements framing digitally printed flowers in a sheer organza on the front of A-Line shifts and mini skirts, yet scatters of crystals were seen on the fronts of suits and two piece ensembles creating an almost LED effect as the crystals shimmered and sparkled with the models strutting down the catwalk. Oh and what a way to close the show. Organza used to emulate pages in a book that moved magically down catwalk with a lightness and etherial finish that only Kane can do with such finesse.
A wonderful (yet bitterly cold) New York Fashion Week, and a huge thank you to Snapette for giving me such a wonderful opportunity to go to so many shows. Next season in Paris..? Lets see where this amazing industry takes me.
Heading off to a little shindig at the British Consulate in New York this evening, donning some printed trousers and a cut out blouse. Lets go rub shoulders with some of New York's and London's top social media professionals.
One more day till Friday guys, I can almost feel the weekend!
