Monika Chiang

It was Monika Chiang’s first New York Fashion Week presentation. She showed leather staples like leggings, long skirts, and gloves with classic jackets and sexy sweaters. Great fur vests.  Her accessories are major—shoes, jewels, bags, and hats. She is one to watch!

Looks from Chadwick Bell Fall 2012 runway (left and right) and Honor 2012 runway (center).


Honor’s quality of the clothes can be seen in her construction. Loved the 50’s housewife inspired cocktail dresses.

Chadwick Bell

Chadwick Bell’s first runway show was a strong and beautiful beginning of a big career. He was inspired by the glamour of the  ‘40s and ‘50s. It was very elegant and feminine using chiffon, satin, feathers, and even leather and fur. Shoes were by Edmundo Castillo—my favorite pair were the velvet blue and green.
