NYFW Notas September 2016 – 3×3 Size NYFW Highlights

I decided to something a little different in my coverage of the collections for Fashion Week month since doing the same old thing of writing a blog post review in the same old format felt boring and stale.

So this year I decided to do post-it sized illustrations of my favorite looks from the collections I loved!

Here are my notas from NYFW!

5 Things I Learned from New York Fashion Week FW16

New York Fashion Week FW16 had extra-cold New York winter weather but that was not enough to keep the fashion and celebrity hordes from attending the shows.

Here’s what I learned from the first week of of Fashion Month

  1. The Marc Jacobs FW16 Runway Show ruled them all!

This is the one show that all the fashion cognoscenti agreed was outstanding and it makes perfect sense that Lady Gaga would be his special guest on the runway.

2. The Coach FW16 Collection by Stuart Vevers offered the coolest interpretation of the varsity jacket seen in a long time! 

Varsity flair rules Coach’s truly American collection. Visit to go behind the scenes.

All the cool “It” girls will want one.

3. Wide-Legged Pants work!

4. Yezzy Season 3

Love it or hate it, everyone talked about it and that is what a collection needs in today’s market.

5. The official NYFW site, app and social media channels set the standard for Fashion Month FW16!

If you missed anything from NYFW FW16, that was your fault! The Official NYFW site offered comprehensive info on schedules, designers, backstage and street style videos, events and more while their Instagram provided constant updates. They did the darn thing complete with mike drop!

NYFW FW16 Schedule



Lots of familiar names on the schedule but several new additions. Let’s hope the fashion critics curb some of their withering reportage and snarkisms cause even at a show that is not the best, there is always some element that is good!

Actually, given the interesting weather lately, it will be interesting to see how the fashionable people survive the NYFW FW16 season. Will they throw common sense literally to the wind, daring to catch pneumonia or worse wearing questionable garments and cruel shoes? I think not, but we shall see…

NYFW SS16: Vivienne Tam, Reem Acra, Libertine, Jeremy Scott

I don’t know if it’s because there is a Supermoon Lunar Eclipse coming up or something is in alignment somewhere because these shows proved that these designers have ascended to a new level of fashion greatness!

  • Vivienne Tam’s collection showed that grey can be a fun color when mixed with graphic floral prints and embroideries.
  • Reem Acra’s stunningly beautiful creations will be a must on every major carpet event.
  • Libertine’s collection showed that quirky chic is uber-cool.
  • Jeremy Scott showed that the fashions of swinging sixties never ended; they just come in much better fabrications.
