New York-based Mexican designer Paola Hernandez doesn't usually present her clothes in a standard runway setting, and her show on Wednesday night was no exception. Her "Singularity" Spring 2014 presentation was held at Churner and Churner, a tiny gallery in Chelsea. This was also one of the first collections in which Hernandez used bright bold colors.
We're not sure if we were sweating profusely because we're not accustomed to such remarkable use of color at a Hernandez show, or whether it was seeing all those custom-made navy blue heels with red laces. Then again, our heart palpitations could be blamed on the male models. Or, OK, the minimal air conditioning.More »

Last week, fashion designer and fourth season Project Runway winner Christian Siriano debuted his first resort collection, but the best aspect far surpassed the beautiful posh dresses. Siriano hosted the ultra feminine line entirely in his amazing Fashion District apartment! And if you were lucky enough to step foot into his place, you'd understand why we're using so many exclamation points.

"Punk began as an impulse, as a feeling," curator Andrew Bolton said during a press preview this morning. And it was Television's Richard Hell that first had the spontaneous impulse, in the mid-'70s, to shred his T-shirt, holding it together with safety pins, spike his hair, ultimately influencing the Sex Pistols, and introducing punk wear to the world.More »

What is even more astonishing is that they've been married for the past five decades! So on today's very special love day, we asked the one couple who spends every waking moment together how relationships can function and survive in today's complex digital love age.More »
|Snow shoes: them (left); us (right).|
Wearing snow boots to Friday's Fashion Week shows is probably the most humiliating thing we have ever done. And this is no exaggeration. Apparently we were the only ones paranoid enough to prepare for the blizzard that barreled down on us a couple of days ago. We felt even more underdressed as we followed the silver-studded platforms and miniskirts toward the shows of two beautiful American designers that had us seeing birds and stars.More »
The first day of Fashion Week kicked off with major attitude, and not from the fashionista wannabes trying to sneak into front-row-seating, but from collections that included chains, leather, anti-girly models in caps.
Gilded Age, known for their cool denim and sportswear, hosted a rumble, of sorts, at Chez Andre at the Standard. Normally we'll run in the opposite direction if a nutjob is swinging a chain or holding a baseball bat, but if they're sporting blue frosted tips and behold a brooding chiseled face then we'll hang out for a bit.
The Mad Max-inspired Fall '13 menswear presentation brand also featured a live musical performance by electro-rock, New York-based, duo Weeknight. The rugged pieces had a cool toughness to them, but with an accessible feel that would transform even the nerdiest dude into a bad boy.More »
