Helena’s Boudoir reports from New York Fashion Week September 2016

new york city photoA fashion week is a fashion industry event, which lasts for a week and allows fashion designers, brands or “houses” to display their latest collections in runway shows and buyers and the media to take a look at the latest trends. Most importantly, these events let the industry know what’s “in” and what’s “out” for the season.

September is a fashion week full month. New York fashion week is the first one and started on September 7th and lasted until September 14th 2016. During NYFW we saw all the new collections and fashion trends for SS2017! For those of you who follow my facebook page, there was a day by day, designer by designer and city by city report!

The Runways

Although many brands experimented with a “see-now-buy-now” format this season – Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Thakoon and Tommy Hilfiger being among them – the vast majority still did thing the old fashioned way, presenting their SS 2017 collections.

We watched the runway shows form Victoria Beckham, Vera Wang, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Alexander Wang, Coach, Tom Ford, Zac Posen, Narciso Rodriguez, Tory Burch, Desigual, Lacoste, DKNY, Oscar de la Renta, Calvin Klein, Escada, Custo Barcelona, Kate Spade, Jenny Packham (the favourite designers of the Duchess of Cambridge), Diane von Fustenberg, Marc Jacobs and many others.

Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue show us the best runway looks.

Street style

When it comes to fashion week, designers might be showing off the latest looks for spring 2017 on the runways, but there are plenty of notable fashion moments happening on the streets where the buyers, the bloggers and the celebrities attending the shows present all the must see styles themselves. This is what we call “street style” and it is as important as the runway shows.

Vogue’s photographer Phil Oh’ is a master on capturing all the street styles, so why don’t you have a look at his photos and be inspired for your next look?

The street style of the celebrities attending the shows is also worth looking. Victoria Beckham’s looks are among the best!

The new fashion trends for SS2017

Although fashion weeks are still on the go with London Fashion Week starting on September 16th, the new trends for the spring of 2017 are already here making us eager to wear super colourful stripes, garden florals, bra tops, all shades of blue, rock and punk, button downs, neon fabrics, ruffles, straps and cool khakis!!!!!

3+1 Ideas for Spring Nails

A stylish woman pays attention not only to her clothes and the way she dresses but also to her hair and nails. So today I am going to show you 4 ways to do your nails for spring.

This season not only bright colors but also pastels are in fashion, decorated with designs. I personally prefer simple colors with discreet designs and I do not like a lot of decoration on my nails such as pearls or other stuff. But if you like heavy decorated nails, you are free to have them.

So have a look at my nails, be inspired and make your next manicure appointment!
