Wow, what a year 2015 has been for Fashion Nexus. I wrote almost 140 individual posts. Updates and creations of various site pages and features. I attended 2 seasons for NYFW, probably with invites to well over 150 shows, attendance at near half. And what I love is knowing that there is still more to come. I can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store for my fashion blog!
It was so hard to pick a few faves of the year, but I selected 12 fave features of mine throughout 2015. But, right here are the top 4 posts of 2015 — What’s Hot for Prom, 2015; Best Dressed at the 2015 Golden Globes; various Project Runway postings; and Best Looks 2015 Golden Globes AfterParty.
Onto the top 12, ENJOY!
DRAMATIZON MAKEUP’S ICE KING & QUEEN SHOW
I love attending fashion shows, specifically thru Dramatizon Makeup, which I was introduced to about 2 years ago. This show is all about creative makeup looks and fierce inventive hair stylings. And on a side personal note, this show really helped to make 2015 all the more better for me. 2015 would have been very different had I never attended this show, not meeting some very special people, one in particular, that night.
Actually producing my show and then writing about it, very much a highlight of my year!
FORDHAM’S ANNUAL FASHION LAW SYMPOSIUM
I wrote a few posts on the Fashion Law Symposium, but I selected this particular one because of the riveting sessions I featured and it was so great being able to meet top model Coco Rocha!
THE RED CARPET TRENDS OF THE 2015 AWARD SEASON
Inspired from collaborative work with Mac Duggal, I went back thru all of the recent red carpets, highlighted trends, and then identified looks from the Mac Duggal catalogue of dresses.
Take for example a gorgeous go-to for any red carpet, a sizzling, bold red look —
And then, here is a stunning Mac Duggal look to match —
2015 INDEPENDENT HANDBAG DESIGNER AWARDS
Such a pleasure being able to attend the IHDAs, being in the presence of such great talent — definitely looking forward to more award shows to come!
Huge fan of LC, so being able to dedicate this #WCW feature on this fashionable icon was so much fun, such a pleasure!
I am a huge fan of maxi dresses. I had such fun looking thru maxi dresses for my fave designers and brands, and then being able to highlight some very unique finds for the season!
Reem Acra is a designer brand I often feature on my own best dressed lists. It’s worn by such gorgeous ladies of Hollywood. So to be in attendance amongst some of the elite in the fashion industry — this is a true pleasure!
Tadashi Shoji is an amazing designer, with looks always on the red carpet, and it was such a thrill, a true honor, to attend this show again!
This show is always a fave of mine during NYFW; it’s lively, vibrant, and exciting!
Leanne Marshall was the first NYFW show I went to ever, way back when I first moved to NYC. Now that I am so in with my blog, it’s been great to witness Leanne’s journey thru several fashion weeks. I will always be happy to be in attendance.
This was my first time being introduced to this talented designer — wow, so many gorgeous, red carpet worthy looks — a new and instant fave!
