NYFW DIARY: Day 1 at John Paul Ataker

Day 1 at fashion week...what an experience! First off, it was probably 20 degrees that day which made dressing to walk around + into shows VERY difficult! I went with my new Donald J Pliner booties in gray, leather pants from Blank NYC, a Helmut Lang cashmere dress, and TopShop bomber to keep me toasty.

So JPA/the venue was very interesting. The show was held at Pier 59 Studios in Chelsea and started with a line that wrapped around the inside of the building. I panicked when I walked in (10 minutes early may I add!) knowing there was no way this show was going to start on time. My second show of the day was going to be off the chain I and was not about to miss a second of it (you'll see what I mean in my next post!!).

After we finally walked into the venue I found my seat in the front row (in front of Lennon and Maisey who looked GOD AWFUL by the way....sorry Nashville fans...) and the show began. I picked my six favorite looks from the show and had to laugh at myself, wow Morgan...five 'all black' and one 'all white' of course. But really, I loved how versatile these pieces were. The white jumper is an evening party essential, the black tops with cascading 'tails' are simple yet SUCH statement pieces, and the tailored black pants were sleek and damn near perfect.

Overall, I was a fan of JPA's collection. I would absolutely wear the pieces I've posted pictures of. For more info on his line, and to WATCH THE SHOW YOURSELF visit his website at http://www.johnpaulataker.com/.

Oh hey...and if you watch the show, you can totally see me in the front row on the right side of the runway entrance!

All the best, loves! Feel free to e-mail me with any questions you may have about the show or NYFW in general(;
