Day Five of Fashion Week started off with an early morning bang with the William Tempest presentation at 8:30am. Nothing like a little fashion with your breakfast!

If I were to describe the Tempest woman in two words it would be “quirky goddess”. While elegant and chic in their silhouettes, each look was either in a bold, daring color or draped in a wacky modern print that reminded me of acrobats and lobster claws…which is a good thing. I fell in love with the prints and the cutesy dresses and onesies, but it was a bright pink acrobat/lobster claw printed shirt dress that stole the show for me.

Next up was Carlos Miele which was inspired by…drum roll please…PINK FLOYD. Before I could even wrap my head around it, Bebel Gilberto walked out onto the runway and began singing “Another Brick in the Wall”.  I immediately went into music heaven, but came back down and pulled myself together as beautiful floor-length gowns and sexy shift dresses walked the runway. The collection had a very South American salsa feel with its billowy fabrics of bright greens, poppy reds and butterfly prints. But obviously what really did it for me was watching Bebel Gilberto.

After Miele I had a little break before the Tracy Reese show so I went over to the Bon Appetit Café to hang out with my favorite PR girl, Sevan from Full Picture. She treated me to some delectable tomato soup with grilled cheese croutons and a dangerously good baggy of maple bacon toffee that melted in my mouth. On my way back over to the tents, I was snapped by New York Magazine photographer, Sam Horine as one of the “18 Most Stylish People from Day Five of Fashion Week“! I was beyond flattered and excited.

Tracy Reese’s collection was a throwback to the swinging 60s and 70s with over-sized round glasses, floppy hats, and crocheted dresses. Being a lover of everything bohemian, I obviously thoroughly enjoyed the collection, although I could do without the brown polyester-like pants. Blech!

Next on the agenda was Monique Lhuillier who always delivers stunning runway collections that feel more couture than ready-to-wear. Upon entering I met Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast and Bryan of Bryan Boy who were so fun and sweet. And I kind of need Rumi’s hat, so cute!

Monique Lhuillier’s collection was enchanting and glamorous and full of award winning gowns. When I get married you better believe she’ll be designing my dress. Her collection was so breathtaking I honestly found myself speechless afterwards, wishing I had some red carpet-like event coming up that would require one of these evening gowns.

The last show on my schedule was Alexandre Herchcovitch whose collections I always enjoy. This season he exhibited a colorful palette of boxy silk dresses, some with tetris-like prints, others with impeccable folds and drapes. Each look was paired with a matching lipstick (we’re talking purple, green, blue and black lips) and colorfully dyed hair to top it all off. This wasn’t one Herchcovitch’s best collections, but it was definitely fun to look at, and I wouldn’t mind some tetris printed pants!

Day Six coming up next!
