Vivienne Hu sent her fall/winter 2016 collection down the New York Fashion Week runway at The Art Beam on February 14, 2016. The runway show was done in collaboration with AtoG Lingerie, which made it’s New York Fashion Week debut.

The fall 2016 collection by Vivienne Hu was absolutely beautiful! I instantly fell in love with her blue coats, navy coats, the beautiful black puffy coat pictured above, and the lace skirt. I also adored the black and grey dresses on the runway. The overall collection was sophisticated, sleek, timeless, and downright fabulous. Love!

As in stride with the new fashion week trend of making some items from the runway available for per-order, or immediately, Vivienne Hu had pieces available the next day at her showroom for clients to try on, and order. AtoG offered the same service to her clients.

I definitely would like to get my hands on the navy coat, light blue coat, black puffy coat, and lace skirt for the fall 2016 season. Which pieces from the collection are your favorites?

I wore this outfit on day five of New York Fashion Week when Laura and I stopped into Laduree SOHO for brunch, and of course to buy macarons!

I titled this look New York Fashion Week winter street style because it was lightly snowing that day, and Laura and I took each other’s pictures just before the snow turned into slushy rain. While we were photographing our outfits, photographers were coming out from another show and snapped pictures of us snapping pictures. It was pretty hilarious.

Day five of New York Fashion Week was significantly warmer than the first four days. The first four days of fashion week, the temperatures plunged below twenty degrees, and over the weekend, down into single digits. On Monday, it was a toasty thirty in the morning, and by the evening, it was in the fifties and humid. This outfit was perfect. I did not need a coat! It is funny how warm thirty or forty degrees can feel after you have been running around in single digit temps!

Day five was my easiest day of fashion week. I did not have to rush into an Uber to make any shows, or worry about being late. I saw Reem Acra and Vivienne Tam; both of which were located at the Skylight Moynihan, and were back to back.

After Vivienne Tam’s show, we attended Vivienne Hu’s after-party. There was a basketball net at the party. If you follow me on Snapchat, you may have seen Laura and I attempting free throws in our high heels. It was so fun, and pretty hilarious to watch! We also had a chance to speak with Vivienne Hu about her collection, and the current changes to fashion week. It was amazing!

I am a little sad looking at these photos. It was the last day of fashion week for me before flying home. New York Fashion Week is so much fun; despite that fact that it is work too! Now that I am back home, spring is here, and I am looking towards warmer weather, and fashion to match!

Stay tuned for my recap later this week where I will let you know about all the new trends for fall 2016 from the runways in New York! Thank you for following along, your support means everything to me!
