Lets begin with The Amme Collection. This is a New York based designer who was inspired with creative ideas from childhood. Her line first focused on accessories, but later branched out to include garments that,
“are intentionally constructed to be unique in some shape or form either by the style of the fabric used or through detailing.”
Shante creates a line that is devoted to the essence of self-expression through fashion and the specific gift of being unique. This line is devoted to her late grandmother Emma; thus the name AMME, which is Emma spelled backwards.

Featuring Emerging Designers: First Highlights of The Amme Collection.
Below we see lustrous fabric tailored to look and feel, both comfortable and luxurious.
Here we see a perfect shade of rosy pink and the graceful stride of a model. How beautiful is this image , with the black and gold shoes adding an exciting bit of edge and contrast.
Twirling in turquoise below. This runway show is full of lustrous color.
Jewel tones are certainly trending. You, who follow me, know that I love my jewels and the saturated colors of each one. Sapphire blue beckons below.
Enthusiastic applause closes this runway show. Featuring emerging designers has a special , more intimate feel than other runway shows.
Switching gears a bit, I want to share two of my favorite dresses from George + Ginger, a pattern making design company that was on the same day of NYFW.
I love that these looks are accessible!
You saw this recently on Instagram.
How about this appliquéd perfection in canary diamond yellow !
Yes, please. Who is with me here!
Fringe moves perfectly when a graceful model walks the runway!
Below Is A shot of Oscar, that I took with my Camera phone!
Closing with a shot of me wearing my new red patent leather trench for NYFW.
Tip: the only must-haves for this season seems to be these:
A strong umbrella and a waterproof coat!
I really enjoyed covering these emerging designers and witnessing dreams coming into fruition.
Is there anything better than that?
I hope, dear readers that you are safe and well. Again, to my readers who are in the eye of the storm, I wish you Godspeed.
