NYFW: Marchesa Fall 2016 [New York Fashion Week Fall 2016]

Ummmmm yea, this happened two weeks ago but just had time to upload my pictures and post now.
The Marchesa show was the third and last show I attended during New York Fashion Week. I also attended Herve Leger the week before but couldn't get one single good picture from where I sat.

I loooved the Marchesa show. The venue was smaller and got to be closer to the runway which was nice since the dresses are definitely very detail-oriented. The dresses were so yummy and dreamy. I was reminded about writing this post when I saw pictures of Heidi Klum wearing one of the dresses to the Oscars last night, probably straight from the runway! See more pics after the jump...

NYFW: BCBG MAXAZRIA fashion show [New York Fashion Week Fall 2016]

New York Fashion Week is back! I didn't think I would be able to make any shows this season but after being a milking cow (more about that later) for a month, I NEEDED to get out. It has been exactly a year since I attended a show (see Jenny Packham and Badgley Mishka posts) so I asked a friend if she's got any invites I could use. I'll be attending three shows. My first show this season is BCBG by Max Azria. The show was kind of a dud for me. The colors and textures were just not to my taste. I think I liked one jacket but that is all. Oh well! I ain't a fashion buyer so it doesn't matter what I think right? I regretted leaving the comfort of our cozy apartment but what was exciting for me was going to Whole Foods after the show to get some sushi haha!

This was my first time attending a show at NYFW's new location since they moved last year. 'Skylight at Moynihan Station' is inside the historic James A. Farley post office on 33rd street. The BCBG show was in one of the larger of the three venues inside Skylight, 'The Arc' which is fairly big and airy. They definitely can fit a lot more people here. However, unlike back in the tents at Lincoln Center, there were no freebies (drinks, greeting cards, complimentary makeup or blow outs etc.). No fun for hanging out.

For the show, I was sitting in the 4th row so I was not close enough to the runway to take decent pictures. This was the best I can do with my iphone and SLR...See more pics after the jump!
