FashionStyle Studio at NYFW!

Fashion Week! We love it so much. So even though NYC ‘s forecast predicted a major winter storm, you better believe that we were on a plane all the way from California to bring another Style Studio to NYC. Nemo was lame anyway, totally unimpressive blizzard!

We partied all night with our favorite bloggers, gave away a ton of free fashion and beauty swag and had a blast while doing it! Take a look below for some snaps of the fun and shenanigans!

Emily of It Girl Rag Doll, Erin of Calivintage and Bianca of  Avant Blargh.

Tieka of Selective Potential and her beau. Such a darling couple.

NYX Cosmetics is one of our personal faves and they were so awesome to send over two super talented makeup artists to provide eye and lip touchups.

FashionFashion Around the Globe: Shanghai Fashion Week

Shanghai was once known as the “Pearl of the Orient” and it is clear that the same holds true with their very talented designers. China’s most creative minds came together to show their Fall/Winter collections at Shanghai Fashion Week and did they ever impress! Let’s take a look at some of these rising fashion stars!
 Helen Lee
 
Retro cool was definitely the theme for Helen Lee with colorful knit pieces that were all about the pockets. The all over kaleidoscope print was surprisingly chic!
Zix Guan
Guan’s collection entitled “Killers” was inspired by the one and only Angelina Jolie and the power she exudes while still be sexy. Yeah, I’d say they achieved that! Loving the leather Victorian-inspired jackets!
Oasis
The ultra feminine shapes and colors on Oasis’ runway were all about girls just wanting to have fun wherever they go. We’re definitely going to need those print dresses in our closets ASAP.
EY
A mixture of hard leather and soft flowing fabrics were a treat for the eyes at EY. Who knew tie-dye could look so hot? 
Kong
What would a fashion week be without a truly extravagant show? Well, Kong gave us what we wanted with structured dresses straight out of a sci-fi movie that were still so beautiful without being gimmicky. A light up dress? What a bright idea!

FashionFashion Around the Globe: Nigeria Fashion Week

From New York to London, to Paris then Milan. We all know of these fashion capitals, but it’s time to explore new fashion ground: Nigeria.  

Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city, played host to ARISE Magazine’s Fashion Week to highlight the work of many African or Africa-influenced designers. It was the event’s second year and a range of 77 designers offered outfits blending traditional fabrics with international flavor that really gave New York and Paris a run for its money! 

So let’s take a mini-trip to Nigeria just for a moment to ooh and awe at some gorgeous designs!
 Jewel by Lisa
It’s no question that Nigeria was definitely all about the prints. The models for Jewel by Lisa were so effortlessly chic with their fitted dresses adorned with bright stripes.
Madam Wokie

Madam Wokie created such beautiful, but very wearable looks with batik print minis with ruffled hemlines and pops of neon. Love the color!

 Eki Orleans
Sultry silk minis and gowns stood out at Eki Orleans, with abstract prints that were mesmerizing. 
Loza Maleombho
Structured separates crafted from batik prints, Kente cloth, and wax fabrics really had us hooked at Loza Maleombho. It was a perfect harmony of African influence and modern shapes.  
Maki Oh
Maki Oh was all about sultry and sophisticated looks with deliciously luxe silks and velour crafted into tailored looks we’d all want!
