Earlier this month I made my way over to New York Fashion week. It was my first time there and I can honestly say it’s everything I hoped it would be.
Surrounded by fashion at every moment, hopping from one place to another, all of which is usually followed by a fabulous dinner and a night out on the town. I went on behalf of my personal blog in which I attended a few shows, had some meetings, attended a couple events and ended the nights with some fabulous fashion parties. Here are some of the shows I attended….

Rebecca Minkoff is known for her accessories, but her forays into designing has been met with open arms. Her looks have a wearable edge, which celebrities are already a fan of. Her Fall/Winter 2011 collection was no exception. From skinny printed pants (reminiscent of her already popular leopard print jeans) to skinny denim leggings with knee details, the collection was edgy but wearable. I’m sure this collection will be popping up on celebrities soon!

Rebecca Minkoff has brought out a new washed denim handbag collection. The bags and purses feature a cheetah print over the washed out denim fabric with leather trims. Some even have studded embellishment on the straps. What do you think of the bags? Are they your style? I love to see denim being used in almost everything now. Cheetah and animal print is very on trend at the moment so why not mix it with such a wonderful fabric? You can check out the collection at www.rebeccaminkoff.com.
