Brunch in NYC

Felt like I had to share this find! Went to brunch with a girlfriend this weekend and it was fabulous. Went to Prune restaurant in NYC's Lower East Side. The place is tiny, has a really cute french, family vibe to it.

Definitely worth a visit. Bloody Mary's to die for!

Versace Resort 2011

Sixties cutie are the words that came to my mind when I first saw this collection. Donatella gives us exactly what a resort collection should be: fun! The strap-up heels gave an unexpected edgier vibe to the clothes and gave that extra sex appeal. I definitely give her props, I have never seen that style of heel used without looking slightly trampy and cheap until this show.

My personal favorite are of course the great many shift dresses, but the black gown (picture 4) really stole my heart.. The dress is sexy while still being strong, it makes a statement, definitely. Another great show Donatella!

Givenchy Couture shows cancelled!

WWD is reporting that Givenchy is no longer going to be doing couture shows! Instead, the designer Riccardo Tisci will be showing his couture creations in private appointments which are said to be costing 35% more than a show. So, it's clearly not a money issue!

Tisci wants to make sure that " People can really experience the couture moment:see it, touch it." The clients that usually purchase Givenchy's couture pieces are never present at the runway shows due to security reasons so this will be a great way to get around that. I just hope we still see pictures!

Another challenge that Tisci is to be taking is that he will not be using any black in his next show. Good luck to Tisci as we all know is very fond of black! I am excited to see what he will come up with!

New Designer Obsession

I am simply speechless! Dion Lee is a 24 year old AUssie designer. His designs are already a HUGE hit in Australia., he recently won the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival Designer award. There is a definite ease to his clothing. The designer likes to explore new materials and try and incorporate it into his garments. He recently used glass pharmaceutical bottles in his garments!

I am just absolutely in love with the prints, there is definitely an Alexander McQueen vibe to them. A characteristic of this designer is the futuristic feel there is in his garments. The cut-outs that are done in his garments are great as they give that unique edgy vibe.

I definitely wanna buy a few pieces! They come with a slightly expensive price tag tho! But how amazing would that white print dress look with some killer heels? Or that great print skirt?

What do you think?

The time has finally come ladies and gents! Rachel Zoe has confirmed that she is going to launch a fashion line. The stylist already has an accessories line done for QVC and will be expanding into clothing. The line will be upscale sold in boutiques and stores such as Bloomingdale's and Nordstrom.

The line will have her signature looks such as fake-fur pieces and Halston-esque dresses. No word on a launch date as she is still in the midst of hiring a design team. All power to her she is really leaving her mark in the fashion realm. I just hope she doesn't get too stressed out, girl has got a hell of a lot on her plate!
