This weekend I was lucky enough to visit the Nicola Formichetti pop-up-shop in TriBeCa… Twice! The space, located at 52 Walker Street and appropriately entitled Nicola’s, is the result of a collaboration between the Mugler creative director and Gage/Clemenceau Architects. The two ingenious forces compliment each other seamlessly, as proven yet again by the store’s appearance. Inside, the cave-like mirror installation is full of Mugler, vintage Versace, limited edition t-shirts, accessories and pieces for purchase by Gage/Clemenceau Architects. The space only runs until September 21st so if you’re in town this week I highly recommend checking it out!…

Between Fashion Week and starting school the last seven days have been hectic to say the least. Luckily, I had some time on Sunday to attend Teen Vogue’s Declare Your Denim fashion show held at Hearst Plaza at Lincoln Center. The show had such a beautiful backdrop and highlighted four fall trends using looks with denim. Thank you Teen vogue for hosting, it was such a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Check out the show below…

While September issues are often celebrated as the markers of the New Year in fashion, they are equally as renowned due to their gigantic size. Unlike certain people who instantly tear the magazines in half, maybe missing the editor’s letter but mainly just hundreds of advertisements, I like to keep mine completely intact for my archive. Yes, it’s annoying to flip through, probably, thousands of the same ads by the time I’ve finished my September haul, but I find it in some ways ‘cheating’ if you don’t. This year, however, I decided to take a new approach when reading and not only look at the ads, but embrace them. There were some great editorials in the 15+ September issues I purchased, but I feel I got to know the new collections best after dismantling a few magazines and putting together a spread using some of my favorite looks from the Fall 2011 campaigns.
