It would seem more than a few New York designers share our sentiment that there is nothing more romantic than a wedding gown covered in Swarovski crystals. Nadja Swarovski along with event designer Preston Bailey, and renowned fashion and accessories designers Monique Lhuillier, Phillip Lim, Anne Barge, Reem Acra, Nicole Miller, Roberta Chiarella, Romona Keveza and the Erickson Beamon design team launched a CRYSTALLIZED™ Wedding Experience last night at Rockefeller Center. An exhibit of one-of-a-kind creations by the world’s leading designers of accessories, fashion, jewelry and interiors embellished with CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements, this event was an impressive kick off to New York Bridal Market Week.

This eco-friendly Spring 09 collection had quite a few pieces we were fond of, most of all, that which was baggy or high waisted. Sure, the clothing was basic and the color palate played into the stereotypes of the eco-friendly aesthetic (i.e. khaki, burgundy, olive) but that really didn't matter in the end. It's wrong to expect everything to be complex in form and brilliant in color--even if it is easier to say those things are "cool". We're guessing that any fashion-forward buyer would know which of these pieces to order, and the collection would seem really fresh on the boutique floor. After all, a Los Angeles woman who wears a 1970's inspired pantsuit, a long striped cardigan, or a belted mini skirt and can call it all eco-friendly is very stylish indeed. If only we saw more of this during Los Angeles Fashion Week...

There's nothing more in fashion right now that shoes that are as tough as nails--whether it's seven inch heels, three inch platforms, studs, straps, or zippers, eye-catching shoes should be the starting point of a Fall 08 wardrobe. If you can't spend upwards of six hundred on this trend we think Jeffrey Campbell is a safe bet. The line is priced just around one hundred dollars and rarely looks like knocked off. Pair these shoes with faux-leather leggings, baggy jeans, or the most feminine skirt.
