Known for her costume designing on HBO's Deadwood, collection for Banana Republic, and most notably AMC's Mad Men, Janie Bryant has been a design inspiration, bringing vintage fashion back to present day. Her work has even influenced other designers to delve into other periods and recycle old styles to modernize them for today's woman. As KORET New York's newest Brand Envoy, Janie hosted a preview for their A/W14 collection on Tuesday evening. We got the chance to chat with her about her career, how she comes up with designs, and what's up next for her.
At the CZAR by Cesar Galindo show this past NYFW, we saw a necklace that just blew us away. Jane Hruska, the designer behind the gorgeous jewelry adorning the models, is not only an amazingly talented and highly respected jewelry designer whose diversity and skill have garnered her clients like Lady Gaga, but also a woman who is truly humble and positively infectious. After our first kismet meeting, we knew we had to speak again, and we did! We caught up with her last week as she told us all about her philosophy, inspirations, and styling an icon that is always pushing the limits of fashion. More»
After years of obsessing over Carrie Bradshaw's wild romances and worldly escapades, who hasn't wanted to raid the iconic girl-about-town's extensive wardrobe? Well, now's finally our chance. Sarah Jessica Parker has teamed up with Nordstrom to bring fellow accessory-lovers a chic and affordable line of Italian-made shoes and handbags inspired by her glamorous life. The SJP Collection also includes a classic trench coat, with pieces named after her Sex and the City character, her favorite designer, and spots she frequents in NYC. We caught up with the actress-turned-designer at an exclusive preview event in New York on Wednesday, where we talked inspiration, grosgrain ribbon, and the ability to rock the "new neutrals." More»
Whether or not you attend any of Fashion Month, with the ubiquity of the internet, we all know that a full recap of every single show is just a few clicks away. Images straight from the runway are being published with more and more immediacy, giving fashion followers in the middle of Topeka almost as much access as any magazine editor in NYC. In fact, sites like Style.com and Fashion Wire Press offer a full encyclopedia of images from each and every runway show around the world, all year long. But what we take for granted, is the work that goes into creating these visual catalogues. From New York to Prague and everywhere in between, fashion photographers follow the industry wherever it may lead, in order to capture it all for us folks at home. It’s a job that can be both glamorous, and extraordinarily challenging. This week, CEO and Founder of Fashion Wire Press, Ed Kavishe took a moment out of his insanely busy schedule to tell us what it’s really like to live the life behind the lens. More»
There's nothing like the thrill of flipping through your favorite fashion mag and finding pages upon pages of stunning photographs (of stunning models wearing stunning clothes). Perhaps you've passed off your addiction to these glossy glamour shoots as a simple appreciation of imaginative images featuring fabulous shoes, but according to art advisor Marla Hamburg Kennedy, you just might be a fine art afficionado.

The year is 2014 and the strides made for women's rights and gender equality are at an all-time high. But while the suffragettes of the 1900s and the bra-burners of the '60s have already broken down major boundaries, there's nevertheless another struggle that women must arm themselves for: the battle with biology. Hailing from Sri Lanka and raised in Long Beach, Tanya Selvaratnam is a writer, producer, theater artist, and activist who, like many modern women, grew up on the principles of chasing her dreams and of building a career before settling down. It was during her painful pursuit of motherhood, however, that she realized the biological clock doesn't wait for feminism. More»
What do you get when you put holistic health, nautical style, and bright colors in a blender and whip them all together? Julia Dzafic.

She also runs a killer online fashion boutique, the Lemon Stripes Store. Her site is happy, bright, whimsical, and just downright charming with gorgeous pictures that’ll make you want to pile on the baubles.
Upon first meeting Yuvi, you can’t help but notice his impeccable style and attention to detail. Everything from his scarf placement to his skillful layering is street style snap worthy. I swung by the Men in Cities studio a couple weeks ago to check out their new collection and to hear more about the fresh new fashion startup. Their offices, located in Soho, is a perfect embodiment of the brand-- both eclectic and cultured. I was intrigued and left inspired by the story; the story of an accessories designer who had a bigger plan in mind. More»
In the ever-expanding art world of NYC, collectors and casual observers alike are always seeking the newest talent. That's why we were so excited when burgeoning artists Sean Vegezzi, Andrew Kass, and Abeline Cohen curated their first exhibit, "15 Warren," giving both fresh-faced and established artists 2 weeks to create an original piece outside of their usual medium. The opening night brought together over a thousand people from diverse backgrounds ("just to see a graffiti writer talking to someone that works for like the Chinati Foundation or something was like really fucking weird") who explored the pieces which remain anonymous.
