NYFW: Designer Roundup for SS15

My take on fashion week is brief and to the point; you won’t find the full collection with long-ass reviews here, you can go on style.com for that. You’ll only find my top picks from each collection with a descriptive line or two.

Marc Jacobs: the floral motif reminded me of Prada’s SS13 collection.

This is my mother’s Valentino 2-piece dress that is more than 30 years old, re-tailored. Basically, the top part of this outfit had a higher neckline and was originally around 10cm longer and without the golden trimming. To modernize it, I loosened the straps, cut off 10cm and added the golden trimmings along the hem. 

I did it myself - blue satin corset with satin straps, satin waist peplum, and lace midi skirt with back slit. 

UPDATED - First Looks: Alexander Wang for H&M

UPDATE: more photos from the women’s collection were added below.

The much anticipated Alexander Wang for H&M collection is set to launch November 6, 2014. Below are the first looks revealed from the men’s collection while Rihanna’s outfit at New York Fashion Week is the only sneak peek from the women’s collection so far. 

What to expect: a monochrome palette, a sporty overall feel and leathers.

My Experience with The Agenda Beirut

After 6 weeks, I can finally share with you my personal experience with The Agenda Beirut and with the Luxury Visual Merchandising class I signed up for. The workshop was lead by the lovely and talented Cynthia Tabcharany, who covered topics on VM from all aspects. I must admit that I attended 3 out 6 classes due to a couple of business trips, and since I work a full-time job, it was a little tricky organizing my time. But with all that, I still managed to attend the class on Friday afternoons at 5.30 and still benefit just as much as the rest of the attendees. Cynthia was always kind enough to recap with me on any important notes I had missed.

The Agenda Beirut

Hurry up! It’s already May and its time for you to sign up for your desired workshop with The Agenda. I’ll be taking Luxury Branding & Marketing with the founder himself, Tony Abou Ghazaly. I must admit, I’m pretty excited to be committed to a 6-week workshop that takes place every Saturday at 4.30pm. Yeah, you might think the timing is little annoying since it cuts off my Saturday, but trust me, the view from the venue makes it all worth while (and I work Mondays to Fridays :))

So, yalla! What are you guys waiting for? Forget Milan! Forget Instituto Marangoni and LCF. The Agenda has brought the same type of courses to the comfort of your country. The Agenda has now exempted you from traveling abroad and from all the hassle that comes with it. And the best part? These workshops are much cheaper than the ones you’ll find abroad.
