NYFW: The Empire State of Fashion! (Part 2)

As promised in the first part of my New York Fashion Week favorites, here is part two. This post is all about my top favorites of the Spring 2013 Collections during NYFW. I have to admit that choosing only one favorite to top the list was not easy. It is quite impossible to be honest. Therefore I decided not to rank the collections but just make a list of my ultimate favorites with the looks I liked the most. So without further ado I present to you my top favorites of NYFW Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear Collections.

Highlight of this show was definitely the Google Glasses :)

NYFW: The Empire State of Fashion! (Part1)

Whether you are a hardcore fashion lover or just someone with a slight interest in fashion, you should know that September is THE month in the fashion industry. September starts off with the famous September Issue of major fashion publications with Vogue's issue being the most coveted. Next, it is time for the anticipated fashion weeks starting in New York City and finishing in Paris at the end of the month. Like the title already spoiled, this post will be all about New York Fashion Week.

From September 6th to 13th it was time for the American (based?) designers to show their Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear Collection. With a considerate amount of shows spread over one day for a duration of 8 days, it totally makes sense not being able to keep up with all the runway shows and presentations. But I managed to make a list of favorites and I'll be presenting them to you next. Although the collections are supposed to be ready-to-wear, some designers raise the bar just a little bit too much. My picks consist of looks that are very wearable.

To be honest with you, it was the first time I heard of Chado Ralph Rucci and thanks to a couple of tweets. But I'm glad I did discover this designer.

In the Spotlight: Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival!

As I was looking back at another amazing year of the Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival, I thought why not share this pretty amazing & surreal experience with you guys? For those of you who don't know what the Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival (CNSJF) is, it is basically a 2 day festival happening in Curacao (duh!) with performances by different (major) international artists. The music genres varies from Jazz to Latin to R&B. This year was actually the 3rd edition of the CNSJF and oh boy, it was bigger than ever!!

We all have the dream of seeing our favorite artists in concert one day and if you live on a small island like me, that dream mainly involves traveling to another country when that artist is on tour. But for me now, it involves waiting on the line up for the next CNSJF!

As I already mentioned, in my opinion this year was the biggest & best festival so far. Not only because artists such as Alicia Keys and Mana were headliners for the festival, but mostly because of the whole "On the road to CNSJF" as I would like to call it. For me this all started on July 20th with the Prince Royce concert and from there it was the different concerts the week prior to the weekend of the festival. On August 26th there was the (free) Kirk Franklin concert. Not even in a million years did I imagine seeing him in concert and let alone on my island. And so there were more concerts that week, including artists such as Richie Ray & Bobby Cruz, Tania Kross, Gregor Salto, Alain Clark and Gregory Porter. What I like the most about this event is that our local talents are not excluded. Every year you can find local artists as part of the program.
