by Esther Nash

Fashion Week began with a Blizzard. If you could shovel yourself out or pay someone else to shovel you out you were in good shape. Flights were canceled and delayed.

As a frequent traveler, I always reserve a flight at least 2 days early just in case something comes up. I also leave 2 days after just in case last minute events pop up so I may attend. Although the weather was less than desirable that did not deter the fashionistas who dressed to the nines in weather gear for the alps from head to toe. It was a fashion winter party. The tents were equipped with hair and make up professional to make sure the elite look their best no matter what.

THIS SEASON's BEST TRENDS: The clothes were vibrant and full of life and color. Animal prints/leggings/jeggins are not just for the ladies. men are now wearing them on the runway. Faux fur and genuine fur Boots are a must heels, wedges, flats any type to the ankle to mid calf to the knee or thigh there is a look for everyone.

Turtlenecks and vest leather, genuine fur/faux fur/multi-colored, multi-layered fabric are a definite. Big bulky jewelry/nails are a must not short long is the look.oval/pointy femine and round..color is a must glitter and embellishment and rhinestones/ jewels. No more one bland colors not even French manicure anymore . French moon is the new safe look. You can cut your hair short but not your nails.

MY FAVORITE SHOWS: Designer Hanako Maeda of ADEAM debuted her Fall 2013 collection at her first Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week Presentation. The ADEAM Fall 2013 collection reflects s juxtaposition between nature and civilization. Inspired by the musical "Into the Woods" and the works of Gerhard Richter, Hanako Maeda imagined a modern fairytale – city girl wandering into the woods, and being consumed by the eerie forces of nature. The ADEAM collection explored how a world made of fantasy could be relevant to modern urban life through its sharp tailored silhouettes and rich color palette. This collection showcased elements from different cultural sources and traditions, illustrating ADEAM's brand philosophy of infusing tradition and innovation.

Also at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Jenny Packham a name synonymous with eminently glamorous design, luxurious quality and craftsmanship showcased red carpet looks for iconic, talented and influential women. Jenny packman's looks are for any huge red carpet gala. Each one screamed awards ceremony grammy emmy why not all of them. Storybook details come to life.

Nanette Lepore and Trina Turk graced Mercedes Benz fashion week with their styles and their stylish attendees. Its always front row madness when it comes to these designers. Pooches and Babies and lots of large smiles and big hair. Nanette Lepore is known for her bold color, evocative prints and signature silhouettes that comprise her contemporary fashions.

Los Angeles based designer Trina Turk is known for her resort swimwear line that showed in Miami. This season her styles walked the runway in a collaboration of boy looks in bold colors. It is sophisticated playful, flirtacious and very young.

Ruffian never disappoints. Brian Wolk and Claude Morais are the designers behind Ruffian, the critically acclaimed cult New York Label. Their definition of style is between the improvised and the studied. Each collection teams opposites side by side, punk and princess, hero and villain, Devil and Angel, and classic with cutting edge. The style demonstrate the ongoing struggle within and offer compromise.

F.A.B. (Fashion Art Beauty) was a perfect match. A fun filled evening of taste, from gourmet and beverage delights to runway show, jewelry designs, paintings, photography, salon trends, make-up application, manicures-red carpet arrivals and shopping options. All were present at this lovely soiree.

West Coast Designer newbie Elliott Evan, presented “NEVER FOREVER” avante garde collection of distressed leather with dropping crotches and splashes of demure color.

As always readers, it was a fabulous time in NYC despite the blizzard and flu epidemic.
