If your eyes haven’t had the pleasure of seeing the incredible onslaught of visual fashion candy, it is Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week! Stunning Spring/Summer 2018 collections, varying from understated to the theatrical, are gliding down the Paris runways as we speak. Today we’re highlighting one such fabulous show. This Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week show highlight, the Maria Aristidou SS2018 Collection, welcomes you to the Secret Gardens of Alexander.

For her Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week show, Maria Aristidou, a specialist in couture knitwear, created a fantasy colorful world for spring-summer daywear-eveningwear for women that romance, positive energy, and freedom are the safety keys to happiness. A playground of flower patterns with silk viscose and metallic yarns where elaborate embroideries decorate the luxurious knit fabrics creations for the women today. Her SS2018 Haute Couture collection boasts carefree curves and sleek cuts with unexpected details, and accessories that complete the beauty of this womenswear secret garden story.

Maria Aristidou’s collection gets you ready for utopia, a fantasy land that euphoria is the only feeling of existence! A land with never-ending gardens of delicate Japanese flowers, that the human eye cannot grasp in one look!!! A land with human smiles that never will be forgotten and always watching over us. One of them, close to my heart is Alexander Boulais! My agent in Paris! The person that with his instinct believed in my work. A gentle human soul, a nobleman that was always calm, soft-spoken with a genuine smile and loved his garden! May you be the wind and the light that crosses your Secret Gardens and always be a shining star upon us!

By Judy Zhang Luxury Ready-to-Wear Spring 2018 Collection

It’s almost time for NYFW the Shows’ Fall/Winter 2018 collection previews and while we’re filled with anticipation, we’re so ready for this year’s Spring/Summer fashions. You see next month is when many Spring 2018 fashion begins to hit retailers. It’s the time when we can finally shop for all the stunning looks we saw last NYFW and fashion previews we attended a full season ago. We begin this round of Spring/Summer 2018 highlights with a fabulous bang, specifically the stunning collection, By Judy Zhang. Boasting chic everyday looks, elegant workwear, and luxury beyond compare, the Spring 2018 By Judy Zhang collection features unique creativity in both the materials used and functionality.

We had the wonderful pleasure of getting to know the By Judy Zhang collection at the Bandladies showroom in NYC. Inspired by a desire to create beautifully constructed clothes, By Judy Zhang prides itself on using the time-honored techniques of supremely skilled, local manufacturers at some of the oldest factories in the country. This collection gifts us with three design series – Sweet Punk and Profession Rock Series, Elegant Queen Series, and Extreme Luxury Series. It features figure-skimming little black dresses and black lace, which has deep roots in Sicily and tells a story of passion and love for one’s roots. The fusion of Sicilian heritage and Italian craftsmanship makes these items instantly recognizable. The collection is so beautiful, it’s virtually impossible to select less than ten favorites. We love the 3D appliques on the chic denim pieces and white shirts, the bejeweled PVC jackets, the handpainted artwork, and streamlined lace pieces. How can you not love everything!

Designer Judy Zhang is a speculative fashion rebel. Her soft external and independent heart, have been gently shown in her exquisite clothing and their details. Within the conception of fashion, Judy Zhang has always shown her “new woman’s philosophy”. Her rebellious and beautiful haute couture/ready-to-wear brand is intended to create a “category” that breaks the definition of traditional women’s clothing and merges the idea of traditional clothing into the “consciousness”.

Judy believes that Fashion design is the most direct way for women to show themselves, and she has created a lot of commanding heights in design and business areas in the last 20 years.

Is the By Judy Zhang Spring 2018 collection putting you in a spring state of mind? What are your thoughts on her collection?

NYFW: Sherri Hill Spring-Summer 2018 Collection

When it comes to glittering formal wear that is always feminine, fashion-forward, and all around fabulous, the go-to designer is Sherri Hill. Whether you’re hitting the red carpet, the prom, or any formal occasion, this formal evening wear designer should be at the top of your list. During New York Fashion Week, the stunning Sherri Hill Spring-Summer 2018 collection of occasion dresses debuted to a packed house of editors, celebrities (both on and off the runway), and influencers.

The Sherri Hill Spring-Summer 2018 Collection started with the bold shade of red. Red exploded down the runway in satin, intricate beadwork, large florals, and fringe. Speaking of fringe, the ornamental detail dominated the collection, appearing in crop tops, long and short skirts, and gowns.

Luxe fabrics, lots of sparkles, more intricate beading, and a variety of figure-flattering silhouettes, including pants and jumpsuits, were highlighted in the popular color palette of whites, pinks, and shimmery pastels were also present throughout the collection.

While all the looks were stunning, one truly stood out to us. Our favorite look from the evening was a stunning spaghetti strap “unicorn” gown with a very dramatic slit and pastel beaded bodice.

The highlight of the Sherri Hill Spring-Summer 2018 Collection was the presence of  Actors Jamie Foxx and Keenan Wayans sitting front row.


Both men were there to support their daughters, Corinne Foxx and Nala Wayans, as they made their NYFW runway debut. You may not know this, but both Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin made their New York Fashion Week debuts in Sherri Hill fashion week shows.

The Sherri Hill collection epitomizes the fashionable lifestyle of today’s contemporary women. Each look is designed to enhance and fit the female form with fashion-forward styling and wearability. Her design career began to gain recognition when various Miss USA, Miss Universe, and Miss America contestants won titles in her gowns. Today, the Hill family business has a network of over 1,000 stores selling the brand in over 30 countries.

What are your favorite looks from the Sherri Hill Spring-Summer 2018 Collection?
