Vivienne Tam is hands-down one of my favorite designers. I wore one of her dresses to my wedding rehearsal dinner! When I found I had a seat in the second row at her spring/summer 2014 runway show at New York Fashion Week I was ecstatic! I could see the models just before they went on the runway which enabled me to see the fabric up close.

Vivienne Tam’s entire spring/summer 2014 collection was divine. I loved the playful prints and vivid colors. The greens and blues mixed together caught my eye! You can see my favorite color story from the collection in the final walk photo above. I cannot wait for Vivienne Tam’s spring/summer 2014 collection to hit store shelves. I NEED many of her pieces!

Below is a press video from Vivienne Tam’s spring/summer 2014 runway at Mercedes Benz, New York Fashion Week. What is your favorite part of the collection?

Yvette is an amazing couture designer who is based in both Miami and New York. This Architect turned Designer makes all of her beautiful pieces by hand. After seeing two of her gowns modeled at “The New FNO” on September 7, 2013 during New York Fashion Week, I was honored to meet Yvette and be invited to visit her showroom in the garment district.

She has four designs on display in her New York showroom which were unlike anything other designers are creating. Yvette’s eye for fashion and her natural knack for architecture has enabled her to design artistic gowns which not only flatter a women’s figure but adapt to the owner’s personal style. Love this!

Many of Yvette’s pieces offer structure and softness; creating the perfect contrast. The structured gowns which do not have fabric underneath are perfect for a woman who would like to make the pieces her own. One could wear a bra-like top underneath for a racy look or a skin-tight cat-suit for a more dramatic and covered-up look. The possibilities for wearing Yvette’s pieces are endless!
