Something I’m definitely going to miss…
New York City has been my dream for as long as I can remember, since the first time I read Vogue and knew fashion was what I wanted to do. From sketching outfits in high school to landing an internship with The Row and attending my first fashion week, I can’t believe my dreams are now my reality. But, I must say it’s the people I’ve shared the journey with I’m going to miss the most. Each one is more kind and caring than a lot of friends I’ve made in the past and I’m so thankful for that. Without them, I would have never had half of the adventures I did in NYC – from staying up all night looking at the building lights on our rooftop to shopping the streets of soho and everything in between. Miranda, Melissa, and Tatum, exploring New York together was a dream and I wish we didn’t have to wake up from, but its just a see you soon, never a goodbye.
After completing a class project on the 1930’s, and listening to other classmates talk about the decades of fashion past, I decided to bring this knowledge to The Garment Garden! I have always identified most with the 1970’s hippie style so, first I want to dive into the 70’s and talk about some key trends. The first trend I want to discuss is the influence of the wild west style on the 70’s as well as today.
New York Fashion Week is well underway with only two days left of shows, but already some major spring trends have emerged. I was fortunate enough to attend my first show ever (yay!!) at Skylight Clarkson Square on Sunday morning to see Francesca Liberatore on behalf of Halfstack magazine, read my show review HERE. The show was amazing; full of muted colors, classic plaid, and sheer lace embellishments – just some of the amazing, upcoming spring trends.

Today for our study tour class we had the amazing opportunity to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see the Rei Kawakubo / Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-between exhibit. This exhibit is truly like nothing I’ve ever seen before with each piece more unique than the last. The uniqueness is refreshing, especially when fashion is currently in a state of knockoffs and lawsuits over designs.
