I hope you all are having an amazing Sunday, and that you have been making style statements throughout the weekend. It’s about that time to wrap up my recap of my New York Fashion Week 2014 experience! In the last post, I gave you a summary of two of the days that I attended (day 2 & 3) ,but today will involve the remaining nitty gritty details of Fashion Week.
Lets get right into it!
NYFW Day 4
Day 4 was on a Sunday. I started my day at my church of course, The Rock Church- Manhattan (300 W. 43rd Street, Sundays at 11am). From there, I went to the Third. NYC F/W14 menswear presentation at Inglot Studios. I also attended the Designers Collective Fashion Show later that evening in Lower Manhattan. For my outfit of the day, I chose to have a casual layered look that was comfortable, yet chic since I would be going to different places throughout the day.
Faux Fur Vest: Steve Madden Girl // Cropped Sweatshirt: Forever 21 // Jean Undershirt: Forever 21 // Green Pants: Forever 21 // Brim Hat: Zara // Necklace: Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market // Bag: Boutique in Manhattan // Booties: Steve Madden
Third. NYC F/W14 Menswear Collection
The collection included leather jackets, sweatpants and layered shirts, some looks of which could be worn unisex. I would describe the clothing as relaxed minimalist with a unique edge. Even the few elevated outfits that I saw had a laid back style to them that gave off an “effortlessly handsome” look.

The Designers Collective Fashion Show F/W14
Eight collections of up-and-coming designers went down the runway at the “Designers Collective Fashion Show”. Both men and womenswear were featured in the show in an array of different styles. Unfortunately, I was not able to obtain the names of the designers lines, because I accidentally left my goodie bag with all of the designers information under my chair at the venue! 😦 I still wanted to showcase their looks because four of the eight designers collection’s really stood out to me and caught my eye. Take a look at a few of my favorite looks from the show.
The menswear was featured in a variety of styles from the different designers. From futuristic and artistic to urban and even preppy!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the detailing of this menswear jacket!!
I let out a happy “eek!” as soon as I saw this come down the runway! This SOOOO has my name written all over it, LOVE! 🙂
I also ran into Russell Simmons at the end of the show! He was nice enough to stop, speak and snap a picture with me. Right before we took the picture he said “I just turned down about 90 people for pictures…but you can consider yourself a star”. I’m pretty sure you can tell from my expression in the picture that I was super happy about that! lol 🙂
Welp, that’s it for this season folks! Unfortunately, I was not able to fit everything that I did into both post, but I think you all pretty much got the idea! I’ll be back for more coverage again in September! 🙂
