Favorites From NY Fashion Week 2012

It's finally that time of the year again when fashionistas from around the country flock to Bryant Park for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. If you aren't lucky enough to see the Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear runway shows in person,  you're probably glued to your computer so that you can see all the live videos and updated runway shoots like me. has definitely been my most visited website this past week without a doubt.

Of course the glitz and glamour of Fashion Week always seems to leave us awe-struck, but a few designers so far have completely caught my attention and made me wish I had a never-ending pocket of cash to splurge on all these gorgeous pieces. But I guess I'll just keep dreaming by living vicariously through my favorite celebrities and bloggers.

Alice + Olivia. I've always been a huge fan of Alice + Olivia, so it didn't come as a shock that I fell in love again with their feminine and flirty pieces.

Jenny Packham. There's a sense of chic sophistication when it comes to Jenny Packham's lines and this Spring 2013 collection was no exception.

Jason Wu. On the other hand, a little leather, lace, and cut-outs aren't so bad either. Even though the darker colors contrast my previous favorites, Jason Wu always has unique pieces for the women who aren't afraid to add a little edge to their ensemble.

Herve Leger by Max Azria. Geometric shapes, skimming silhouettes, and cinched waists were found on nearly every runway look this season for Herve Leger. The collection mainly consisted of dresses
that hit mid-thigh and are definitely show-stoppers.

And honestly, the show I'm most excited for has yet to happen. The very last show in Paris on October 3rd. Elie Saab will be the closer of a fashion-filled month, and I can't wait to see what kinds of gorgeous gowns he puts down the runway this season!

What were your favorite collections? Were any of your favorite designers disappointing on the runway this season? Were you able to go to NYC for Fashion Week?
