Asia Fashion Collection showed their top designers at New York Fashion Week on February 14, 2016. The show was held at Pier 59 Studios in New York.

I always love watching the Asia Fashion Collection show at New York Fashion Week. It is amazing to see what students from Asia are creating for the future of fashion. I loved all the street style influences, athleisure styles, timeless luxury, and artistic touches the designers infused into their collections.

The two navy coats pictured above are my favorite looks from the Asia Fashion Collection runway. Which looks are your favorite?

When it comes to New York Fashion Week, we wear pink faux fur. Literally. Not only did I wear faux fur on Saturday during New York Fashion Week, my friend Laura from Have Need Want also wore shades of pink faux fur; oh we were quite a sight together!

Seriously though, when in the world can you wear a shaggy, pink faux fur coat in a regular day to day life? It can only work during fashion week; or any fashion related event. Now, when it comes to shaggy black faux fur, it can be worn all the time, for any occasion! If you are thinking of a fun, faux fur coat to keep you warm now, and next year, my coat is in stock in black; and it is on sale! Love that!

I am so glad I packed this fun and furry, pink faux fur coat. The temperatures on day three of New York Fashion Week dropped down into single digits. This little California girl was frozen solid! Thankfully my coat kepy me toasty warm. Even the pockets were fabulous! When my iPhone battery dropped down to nothing due to the cold, I took it out of my purse, and placed it in my pocket. The combination of my body heat, and the warmth of this coat, kept my iPhone charged! Loved it!

This fun, fluffy, pink faux fur coat would also be a kick to wear on a trip to Tahoe. Wouldn’t it be fun to walk into a restaurant and be the only person not wearing a giant ski jacket? I am sure I would get some shade thrown my way, but hey, live a little right?

Day three of New York Fashion Week was a fun day. I started off the day at Taoray Wang, then felt really special with my assigned, front row seat at one of my favorite designers, Leanne Marshall. I got the most fabulous photos of her beautiful collection! Stay tuned for my write up on her show!!

After Leanne Marshall, I went to Michelle Helene’s presentation, and then went to one of my favorite shows; Monique Lhuillier! My assigned seat was straight up from the photographers risers, so my pictures show the models as they turned. Although I didn’t get really good shots of the models head to toe, I did get some fun photos which show the models turning motion. Since her inspiration was taken from the early 1970s, I thought the motion added a groovy vibe to my view. Loved it! Stay tuned for my write-up on her show too!

I had a blast being a giant, pink fur ball on day three of New York Fashion Week. It was little Pink Panther, and a little pink Cookie Monster. When Laura and I walked together, the street style photographers definitely started snapping! It was really fun. Now I need to find another avant-garde occasion to wear this pink faux fur coat again! It is quite fun!
