FIDM will present a two-part fashion show, consisting of the 2013 FIDM DEBUT Runway Show and the Cadillac Couture Competition. All proceeds benefit the FIDM Museum Fashion Council and their planned acquisition of The Helen Larson Historic Fashion Collection. Tickets are $100 each, and can be purchased at FIDMMuseumShop.org.

If it wasn't black and white, solid white, or solid black, it was saturated color—that was how Ralph Lauren's spring 2014 collection turned up on the runway on day 8, the final day, of New York Fashion Week. Lots of '60s-inspired looks. But, my absolute fave was the drop-dead gorgeous red deep V drapey dress. Love!

Designed and produced in Los Angeles, Clover Canyon has only been around for two years and is already fashion's little sweetheart. Creative director Rozae Nichols's eclectic prints and futuristic silhouettes are inspired by world cultures, art, and travel—and reflect the fresh spirit of California. Shown on day 7 of New York Fashion Week, her spring 2014 collection is influenced by mid-century California artists and architects, from Dan Flavin to the Eameses.

I quite like the tank top that resembles nori (edible sheet of seaweed). Also, the blueprint blazer is pretty rockin'.

If you cut me open, I would bleed J.Crew. I'm not kidding. Take a look at this sampling of their spring 2014 collection, featured on day 6 (yesterday) of New York Fashion Week, and just see for yourself what I'm talking about. The Aloha tee styled with the lacey skirt? I'll take it. And the paint-splattered pants? So, so cute.

Jackie Fraser-Swan presented her Emerson line for the fifth time at NYFW. (She's related to famous poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson—how cool is that.)

The designer was quoted as saying that her show was like “a group of punk rock kids crashed a private garden on the Upper East Side where the Ramones were playing a secret show.” Feminine and punk—I like the sound of that. You?

Charlotte Ronson did not disappoint on Day 3 of New York City Fashion Week. Cropped tops, white eyelet, cutouts, Peter Pan collars, and prints reigned supreme on her spring 2014 runway. Style.com reported Ronson describing her girl as "a Parisian in New York." She said, "She's studious and intellectual, but she likes to have fun. The dresses are sweet, but you can see the body underneath."

Is it spring yet?

What an absolutely thrilling treat that was, watching the Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2014 runway show livestreamed from NY. I was magically transported there, hanging out with the host, Kelly Osbourne, witnessing the Janelle Monae live performance, and of course seeing the amazing RM designs trapsing down the runway—all from my air-conditioned corner office in Downtown Los Angeles!

My all-time favorite looks from the show have to be the "Let's All Go To Mexico" t-shirt and the black sheer dress over the floral mini-dress. Love, love, love.

It's already Spring 2014 in New York City! Fashion Week kicked off today with it's usual roster of back-to-back runway shows.

We loved the BCBG Max Azria collection presented earlier today. Crisp whites, feminine flowy prints, basic blacks, and even some Art Nouveau influences. Check it out.

Chanel Fall 2013
It's always exciting to see what Mr. Lagerfeld will come up with for Paris Fashion Week. He placed a giant wooden globe smack in the center of the Grand Palais as the theme for Chanel's Fall 2013 collection! Of course there were tweeds, but they glittered (like the night's sky) and metallic threads glimmered (like the cosmos).

These are a few of our favorite looks, but be sure to check out the entire collection on style.com.
