Up Close & Personal With: Chanel ‘Cercle Prive’ Haute Couture Fall 2015 Collection

Every season, one of my highlights of flocking to New York Fashion Week, is the time I get to spend with my Chanel family at the seasonal Haute Couture appointment. Jump in the car uptown to the Chanel offices, ascend the model maintained elevator to the magic floor where dreams come true and there is nothing but Haute Couture filling up an entire room.. Then you blink twice and realize YAS, this is real (lol!).. This season like every other, I have had the pleasure of once again attending and getting my time with yet another exceptional beautiful and always crazily cool Haute Couture collection from Chanel.. This season, the collection as always had all the signature elements, the iconic jackets, suits, skirts & you know, that iconic Chanel look..

For this season, the collection was themed 3D… Fitting, after learning that pieces and elements from the collection were actually constructed using the 3D printing process to create shell like bodies for jackets and details for other looks… Another amazing element was (as we’ve seen in the past) the blend of elements, textures and textiles… Karl never ceases to amaze me when you really get to look up close at some of these clothes and realize just how much thought goes into everything… The aesthetic was a bit more military with more masculine shapes and silhouettes which obviously I was oohing and awwing over!!

Overall, as you can imagine it was another dream experience with the amazing team at Chanel! Thanks for having me again!! XoJay


Diesel Black/Gold Spring/Summer 2015

Every season I am always so excited to attend the Diesel Black/Gold runway shows, both men & women’s, not only because of the grand level of detail and cool production behind each show but because of the constant element of surprise. I feel that every season designer Andreas Melbostad, strengthens the energy of the brand by incorporating new and refreshing design assets to the sensibility and soul of the Diesel Black/Gold brand. Whether it be using furs for fall or the signature rock studs and leather details for spring, each season always has a exciting added flavour taking each collection to a new level. This season there was colour, skin, classic style and a whole lot of signature leather and studs. The show was exciting, energetic and I am definitely excited to get my hands on some of the pieces next season! Also, make sure you check out the Diesel Black/Gold Men’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection as well on my blog!!! Also, stay tuned to social media because I will be sharing my live videos from the show with the #HPPRINT Live Photo technology!!


LPDNYC Spring/Summer 2014

Right from the moment I landed in New York it was GO GO GO! That evening I had the pleasure of attending and co-hosting ‘The Line Up’ Spring/Summer 2014 presentation from COI & my fave’s LPD! I was so happy to support a close brand and be a there for them on their 1 year mark. It was also so amazing to see LPD expanding their designs and trying new things with a new unexpected approach adding a sweet amount of variety to the label. I obviously love the merger of high fashion and street wear and that is exactly what is happening here. Luxe looking textures with classic street-cuts, a perfect match if I must say so myself. See more of the collection below!!



So excited to be hosting this for one of my favorite New York brands with some really awesome people!! This is going to be a major night!! See you tomorrow New York City!!!!!!!!!!


Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2013

Give me monochromatic, give me black and white and you win my heart but do it with animalier inspired cutouts and the cleanest lines of the season, you just slayed me! I love the intensley sporty and downtown feel of Alexander Wang’s spring/Summer 2013 RTW collection. There is so much out of control insaneness here, how sections of clothing seemed to magically be floating and holding position. It was such an inspiring collection and definitely FASHGAZM worthy.

From the separates and dresses to the shoes you can feel that there is something magical about this collection that seriously made one of the biggest statements this season at fashion week. Alexander Wang always has such an ability to clearly and directly convey his messages and themes through his work. You know his mood and you really get a feel for what he is thinking. What you see is what you get and I love it! AND THEN THEY GLOWED IN THE MOTHER FUCKIN’ DARK – no, I’m sorry I rarely swear on my blog anymore but I seriously had to because that my friend JUST SHUT IT DOWN like, I can go home now. Thanks people!
