New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 RTW: Alice + Olivia

No one does a pretty party frock better than Stacey Bendet. This year the head designer for Alice + Olivia threw a nod to 1950's nostalgia for her Spring 2013 RTW collection. Bendet used every color of the rainbow for spring, inspired by artist Ilya Bolotowsky, whose works mixed the decade's bold primary colors with sweet pastels. If you love color and wearing lots of it, you might want to pick up the striped, strapless, bustier crop top and the full skirt to match.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A girl could truly build an entire wardrobe from this collection. There is something for everyone including: fit-and-flare dresses, floor grazing maxi dresses and cool mixed separates. A standout look teamed white, billowy, gaucho style pants with a bedazzled bustier top and an orange leather jacket. We personally loved the chambray shorts coupled with the blue poppy top and glittering striped jacket.

Looks were styled with lace-up pointed booties, floral print sandals, ankle-wrapped heels, top handle bags and Lucite clutches.

 

 

Bendet expanded her cocktail dress expertise to full-length evening gowns and proved that you'll be seeing more of her designs at red carpet events. The embellished, ivory cap-sleeved gown needs to be feted by one of Hollywood's young twenty-somethings. We're looking at you Emma Roberts, AnnaSophia Robb and Allison Williams.

New York Fashion Week RTW: Whitney Eve

 Up and coming fashion designer Whitney Port proved that she is far more than just a gorgeous TV star with her Whitney Eve Fall 2012 RTW Collection.

The diverse collection included jackets, pantsuits, tank tops and a variety of dresses. The unique details of the clothing made the collection come to life with sparkling silver polka dots, jeweled trim and peek-a-boo fabrics. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The color palette of the collection ranged from blush to tangerine tango to royal blue. The end-of-summer meets beginning-of-autumn outfits featured mini-dresses with cardigans and maxi-dresses with sweaters. The versatility of the collection showcased how each piece could stand alone or be layered for colder weather wear.

 

 

 

 

The models wore bright coral lipstick and flowing, side-parted ponytails. Polka dot opaque tights and peep-toe heels were featured throughout the collection. The Whitney Eve Fall 2012 collection included a little something for every twenty-something fashionista looking to add pizzazz to her autumn wardrobe.
