Mongol AW15 | NYFW

Hey Gorgeous Readers!

Last Friday I was able to attend Mongol's AW15 show at Lincoln Center. This was the collection's debut since it began in 2005. It was so gorgeous and I was in love with the innovative ways different textiles were used. Velvet, fur, and vinyl were used through the collection. The colour scheme was as eclectic as the fabric in deep burgundy, gold, pink, purple, and teal. Many of the looks were paired with beautiful intricate headpieces as well.



The show opened in the dark as a man played a solo on a Morin Khuur, Mongolia's national instrument, a bit like a violin with two strings (listen to one here). Then it merged with EDM and the lights turned on for the show! It was really beautiful and a really nice way for the designer to share her culture and modern fashion designs.






Designer, Bayarmaa Bayarkhuu, has traveled Asia, America, and Europe which inspires her deisigns greatly. She actually has a degree in business and finance so when she's not designing she runs her father's company too. 


The collection is inspired by a combination of traditional Mongolian costumes, urban casual style and an entrepreneur lifestyle mixing tradion and luxury with casual comfort. The ready-to-wear line incorporates sleek wearable pieces with Mongolian lamb fur lined outerwear, cashmere, a special material from Mongolia, is used to create glossy hues with added sparkle bold colors such as turquoise, amethyst, sapphire, and emerald, accentuate the raw materials used, keeping the essence of Mongolia.

Trending | Fur at Fashion Week

Hey Gorgeous Readers!

Yesterday I got to attend Mongol's FW 15 show at New York Fashion Week. The clothes were stunning and I loved the innovative uses of textiles. I'm busy editing those photos for you today, but I wanted to share a major trend I saw all over the tent- Fur.

It is freezing here in New York City so the pavillion outside was nearly empty and everyone in the tent was bundled up.





I love how glamorous all of the fur pieces looked and how they could be balanced with simpler slimmer pieces.

I wore another trend-white on white..

avocado tartines at Le Pain Quotidien.

Beau-ties | Casual Pocket Squares

Hey Gorgeous Readers!

Since I've returned back to New York, I have been noticing a ton of pocket squares paired with totally casual looks which of course I'm really in love with so I went to Pinterest  (♥) for some more chic and casual to looks to share with you.


Pocket squares are way easier to wear than tying a bow-tie. I think the square fold, the throw, and one front are all great for casual looks. Cardigans layered under jackets keep the look perfectly polished and casual.


And I love this menswear inspired look. Totally glam and casual for early morning coffee runs.

Also this Friday... I'm going to Fashion Week again!

Stay Fabulous,
xoxo Aimee
