As a fashion journalist, I certainly get invited to many fabulous fashion shows and events throughout the year. But, nothing can quite compare to the magic of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Manhattan held at Lincoln Center. This is where the best of the best showcase their new seasonal collections for editors, media, taste makers and yes, celebrities!
One of the highlights of the Spring/Summer 2014 Collections was the Vivienne Tam runway show. DailyFashionista has been a devout Tam admirer for quite sometime and it was a pleasure to have a close-up view of her latest pieces. Taylor Swift, Michelle Williams, Eva Longoria and Julia Roberts have been seen wearing her gorgeous designs on the red carpet and for important appearances. It’s clear that Vivienne has her pulse on what flatters a woman and adds that certain something that will make you feel wonderful and look memorable. As we entered the runway at Lincoln Center it was to a packed house anticipating the show.
As the lights dimmed and then became ultra-bright, gorgeous models with sleek hair, bronzed/fresh makeup with a light peach metallic lip began walking or I should say strutting out of a futuristic city sky scape. The looks were a refreshing mixture of bold prints in black and white with pops of color. A DF favorite was most definitely a blush colored dress cut beautifully with a swing look at the top, accented by touches of sleek black at the shoulder. We also fell in love with a black and white plaid short ensemble worn with a swing coat and floral t-shirt. Crop tops with flirty bold prints also rocked the runway in a big way as the crowd intently watched. A great day to night dress was a white dress with incredible details at the neckline and cut to fit the body in an ultra-flattering way! A true Hollywood moment was when a stunning poppy red gown graced the catwalk. The crowd was overheard “oooh and ahhing” over this one — and so were we. DailyFashionista could easily picture a famous celebrity wearing this gorgeously designed gown to a major awards show. Bravo to Vivienne Tam for a breathtaking and wearable collection that many a fashionista can enjoy and feel confident in.
We also wanted to thank the designer for the gorgeous hand-written card she sent us! Vivienne Tam is the total package — fashion, beauty, creativity and intelligence.
