“Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward
to the future…this is known as Fashion Week” – Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and the City).
How delicious is this quote which we hear and still love every Fashion Week?
If you haven’t already, keep up with out dope collection of Street Styles and collection favourites from New York. Its been amazeballs. Id go right into it as we might have quite a number of pictures.
Day 1 Favs;
Kaelen Spring/Summer RTW 2015
“I’m such a fabric freak…until I have the fabric I don’t know what the silhouette would be.” – Kaelen Haworth at her Spring 2015 presentation in Manhattan.
Tadashi Shoji Spring/Summer RTW 2015
Earth coloured pastels (if there is such a colour) with relaxed silhouettes. What I loved so much about this collection is the classical look of some of the pieces. Even where he had crop tops, they looked conservative with a touch of class.
Day 2 Favs;
Kate Spade Spring/Summer RTW 2015
So garden party chic. I would totally love to have a get-together with friends in this theme. Fresh looks with most of the pieces being in my fav colour, green. The dark green dress on the model with sunglasses is so 50’s and keeps giving me life.
Her purses were also really creative, playful and cute.
Monique Lhuillier Spring/Summer RTW 2015
She is most popular for her bridal dresses. For some reason I kept mixing up this collection with Tadashi Shoji’s.
I really heart the sheer fabric, and the embroidery sprinkled all over some pieces especially the purple ball gown and the pink from hem dress.
Day 3 Fav;
Christian Siriano Spring/Summer RTW 2015
I almost loved every outfit in this collection. Christian definitely has a knack for that finishing touch. The simple dresses have a certain slight cut or curve that oozes class. Loved the use of silk, this season’s deep neckline and lace.
Day 4 Fav;
Diane Von Furtsenberg Spring/Summer RTW 2015
Seeing Naomi Campbell (who closed the show) strutting in that flirty dress, Kendall Jenner (whom it was an S/S debut) just two people behind her in a pretty lace and possibly tweed dress was enough to distract me but no. The calibre of people at DVF’s show and the versatility of the collection, one could see this is the perfect collection for the America working woman.
There has been quite a number of checkered looks this week. Lace and strong silk were also spotted.
I saw my darling Ivanka Trump at the show as well. Pleased.
Day 5 Fav;
Carolina Herrera Spring/Summer RTW 2015
Flowers Flowers Flowers, definitely the inspiration behind this collection. Love the accentuated waists, length and the structured dresses.
Day 6 Fav;
Dennis Basso Spring/Summer RTW 2015
Very metallic colours. I really like the structured looks. This last one with a front slit (which loads of pieces this season had) is an amazing mix I’d say…serious and feminine.
Day 7 Favs;
Delpozo Spring/Summer RTW 2015
Omigosh! Ethereal is the word for this collection. The pastel is a tad deeper than usual. Such creativity with scriptural but also soft elements.
you also know I can’t help but stare when there is colour.
Oscar de la Renta Spring/Summer RTW 2015
Even before sighting anything from this collection, I was certain it would be one of my favs.
I read that there were toy elephants perched on everyone’s seats, these were gifts from the Clinton Foundation to raise awareness for poachers. Cuuuuuutttteeeee.
This collection was obviously classy as usual, but he also showed midriff. I’m in love with the Pants look with lacey top and pastel blue checkered kimono.
Day 7 Favs;
Calvin Klein Spring/Summer RTW 2015
Really dark and classic collection. Quite simple, great cuts and patches mix. Also , good use of leather to work in Spring/Summer.

–> Lisa Folawiyo Spring/Summer RTW 2015 – Day 4
Both my fav looks at the bottom. I thought Lisa’s collection looked rich. Possibly excessive on the patches/cut-outs, she still made them quite wearable. I wish I could rock one of these.
–> Deola Sagoe Spring/Summer RTW 2015 – Day 4
Oh my! I need these dresses at the bottom. So so classy.
Some pieces in this collection were flirty (surprisingly). *smiles*
I love the deep plunging necks and sheer cut out on the navy blue silk dress.
–> Clan Spring/Summer RTW 2015 – Day 4
SO damn impressed. The ladies at Clan styled these models perfectly. I love whats going on on their hair. The collection is easy, fresh, young and playful with a touch of edgy. I already see my self in the red crop look. Great future ahead.
That’s it from New York guys. Hope you are inspired?!!
Fashion Week would never be complete without at least a couple Street Style pictures. As I earlier mentioned, there are loads of pictures to keep your adrenalin up on our Instagram page (@Metrogypsie.)
Honourary mentions which I would post up on instagram later today.
These three people kept serving in New York daily all week long and were very consistent with impeccable style.

–> Blake Scott (@blakescott_)
–> Olivia Palermo
I just couldn’t get enough of the Burberry look
Big ups to these 3 and loads of others. They kept us alive in style.
#RandomThought: why are there 3 magazines between September 2014 and October 2014 with those on the cover in the same pink Chanel suit??!?
Do enjoy the rest of the Fashion weeks and do not forget to stop over here after each one to be served.
Have a lovely fashion week and weekend and do not forget laughter is always in season.
