Interview w/ Daniel Silverstain on His First Presentation at NYFW

Daniel Silverstain has been making waves in the fashion community ever since he arrived on the scene in 2011. Early on, Daniel was selected by Vogue Italy as one of Muuse’s Top 10 Most Promising Designers, and in 2013 was a finalist in ELLE’s Fashion Next Fashion Show. Daniel was very recently accepted as a member of the CFDA+ and recognized for his outstanding achievement in Womenswear Design. With design experience under his belt from working at Calvin Klein Collection, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Ellie Tahari, the young Israeli designer is finally showing his own collection at NYFW for the first time. I caught up with the newbie to find out who inspires him to create, and how he’s learning to let go.

NYFW: Interview w/ Designer Kaelen Haworth on the Importance of Staying Local & Having Fun! via Guest of a Guest


Canadian cool girl Kaelen Haworth has the sort of self-possessed ease of manner typical of someone twice her age, with a sense of style that’s as authentically hip as they come. So it’s no surprise that her eponymous womenswear line, KAELEN reflects the same statement-making, yet effortless presence of the designer herself. Kaelen’s aesthetic tends toward minimalist designs with stand out elements like bold volume and luxurious textures – each more covetable than the last.

This season, we took a moment with Kaelen during her spring show at the High Line Hotel to find out more about what drives this young designer’s dedication, how she pulls it all off and still manages to have fun during NYFW!

NYFW: Day 7 Street Style from the Tents via Guest of a Guest

Though the sun shone down on Lincoln Center, it didn't go far towards warming the 21 degree day. Fashion week attendees rushed in and out of the tents in a hurry to escape the cold, but not without pausing gamely for a few street style photos first. Boisterous bloggers flaunted daring fashions, and Lynn Yeager raced by in her signature face paint as several cameras snapped her picture. In fact, we turned the lens on a few of the most well dressed photographers themselves. It seems they too deserve a moment of appreciation for looking good on the job, especially under such arctic conditions!

NYFW: How to Wear Gold Jeans, Day to Night via StyleCaster

Although it may be cold and snowy, that didn’t stop me from attending a number of shows and parties during New York Fashion Week. The problem: How to look festive and stylish while still paying attention to the inclement weather that’s been pummeling the city? Enter metallic jeans! On a particular busy day during NYFW, I slipped on my slightly slouchy, waxy gold jeans and felt just the right amount of appropriate.

But as I glanced at my calendar, I realized that while I’d start my day show hopping at Lincoln Center, I would end it with a party hosted by Vince at the Top of the Standard Hotel in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Luckily, I worked out that I’d have a small window of time to run home and pull an outfit swap before my evening activities.  In the interest of saving time, (and because I knew my jeans would fit right in amongst the venue’s gilded décor) I opted to keep the pants, and style them with more evening-friendly pieces.

Read on to see how I took these fancy pants from sun up to sun down, and tips on trying this bold trend yourself.

NYFW: Day 5 Street Style from the Tents via Guest of a Guest

As usual, the Alice and Olivia presentation was a treat for the senses. Held at the McKittrick hotel (home to the seductively mysterious theater experience, Sleep No More) show goers knew to expect something special. And they were right. One model lay "sleeping" in a glass box with an apple shaped wallet in hand, while another perched high above the crowd with 15 feet of blonde hair cascading down a mountain top. The storybook theme was a perfect backdrop for designer, Stacy Bendet's latest collection which included everything from brocade ball gowns to lace blouses. Also as usual, the venue was packed with friends and fans. We managed to corner the best dressed of the bunch for a quick photo amidst the mayhem.

NYFW: Day 3 Style from the Tents (via Guest of a Guest)

Mara Hoffman's bohemian runway always draws an equally hip crowd of fans, friends and family. Even a toddler or two were spotted wearing full Mara garb at the show. Last season her runway featured wide brim hats, which might explain the plethora of toppers outside of the show. From beanies to floppys, our hats are off to the best dressed guys and gals of the day.

NYFW: Day 1 Street Style from the Tents (via Guest of a Guest)

Yesterday marked the first morning of NYFW and the newly redesigned tents at Lincoln Center were buzzing with anticipation. Industry big wigs including Joe Zee, Ken Downing and Leandra Medine showed up bright and early for the BCBG show. Many show goers mingled around afterward sipping Smart Water and posing for photos, although security inside the tents was tighter than in the past - keeping out many photographers without credentials. Once inside, we snapped some of the morning's very best outfits - which included plenty of practical footwear. Check out this round up for some serious winter style inspiration!
