Fashion Insider: Familiar Faces And Surrealist Dreams
Fashion news, trends, topics and images straight from the desk of yours truly.
1/ As New York Fashion Week hit a high note despite the recent rocky nature of the industry, several trends prevailed. Although I have to say I personally have an affinity for the gothic punk looks that were seen everywhere from Rodarte to Fenty x Puma, the list creates an easy-to-copy palette that can take you into the rest of the year looking fly. Check out the top picks on Harper’s Bazaar.
2/ Recognize any of the new faces from the runways of New York and Paris—and soon to be Milan? One in particular should ring a bell: Alanna Arrington of NEXT and St. Louis-based Mother Model Management. Arrington’s signature curls have been seen in ALIVE Magazine, St. Louis Magazine and a recent ad campaign for local knitwear company SKIF International. She went on to warm up with national brands (like American Apparel) and hit the biggest runways of the year. She even caught Vogue’s attention, who’s recent interview with the young star proves that Midwest really is best.
3/ An easy highlight of London Fashion Week was the beautiful, nearly transcendent collection from Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. Equally romantic and surreal, the entire collection could be compared to a fabulous, fashionable night on Ambien—a sleepwalker’s dream if you will.
