Mark & Estel Spring/Summer 2015

September 22, 2014

Mark Tango and Estel Day are best known as the rockstar designing duo behind the brand “Mark & Estel”. The musical pair launched the USA-made label in 2005 in Los Angeles and is known for their iconic leggings, flowing dresses and signature fashion tees. I first experienced this brand last year during Fashion Week when they debuted their first RTW collection at Lincoln Center. I fell in love with their designs and the fun rock performance by the designers during the finale of the show. I knew then that this brand was one that I needed to keep my eye on!

I was excited to attend the show again this Fall, but more curious to see what designs were going to make their way down the runway. I also wanted to see a fun performance during the finale! πŸ™‚

Mark & Estel did not disappoint on September 5th, when they delivered their Malibu-inspired collection at Lincoln Center. The models came down the runway in downtown-chic garments in black and white colors with a touch of dusty blue. The looks were completed with teased hair, long fabric bowties and a few brim hats. The best part of it all: All of the garments in the show were made out of re-used jeans, t-shirts and sweatpants! Now that’s what I call Fashion Sustainability! πŸ™‚

T-shirt dresses, oversized jackets/blazers with padded shoulders, and open-toe booties were mostly seen in the show this season. Each was giving off its own Malibu look, and I was here for them all! LOVE! πŸ™‚

Overall the show was a great experience that I thoroughly enjoyed! I could see myself wearing a lot of these deigns, especially the grey maxi dress with the black brim hat and open-toe booties! I look forward to using these items in future styling projects. πŸ™‚
