Plus Night Out was a thrilling conclusion to New York Fashion Week. Hotel Pennsylvania was packed with an audience dressed to the nines – inspiring looks were happening both on and off the runway. Leather paneling, geisha-inspired mini dresses, unexpected prints, and metallic elements were among the catwalk fare. From newcomers like Chocolate Sushi Couture to prominent designers like Ashley Stewart and Igigi, a variety of creative visions were on display. Take a look at some of the evening’s highlights!
Just like black never goes out of style neither does getting fabulous clothes for a value. We, at Gwynnie Bee, think rental is the new way to get more fun with fashion for your money.
Today, we launch a collection of pieces proven popular with members whose hips and shoulders are wider than their waists.– our Hourglass Styles. An hourglass herself, our girl Eliza of Dorothy Combs Models (you may remember her from her Model Profile) has tons of valuable advice for hourglass dressing.
Now that Fashion Week has come to a close, the runways and tents all packed away, we turn to the streets for our style inspiration, where unique styles always abound. Click through collections inspired by four U.S. fashion hot spots to explore the fashion identities of each city!
As you know, we’re obsessed with member photos because it’s a great way for others to see how Gwynnie Bee garments look “in real life” and how you ladies are rocking them.
We’ve seen lots of great photos come our way this week from Gwynnie Bee members posing in their latest items. Such an awesome variety of styles on a wide range of women! Here are some of our favorites:
Last week designer Eden Miller of Cabiria made fashion history when she proudly sent looks from her Spring/Summer 2014 collection down the runway at New York Fashion Week. We at Gwynnie Bee are big fans of Miss Miller’s and we couldn’t have been more thrilled to have had the opportunity to attend what has widely been acknowledged as a truly momentous occasion: the first ever plus size fashion show to appear in New York Fashion Week. The Cabiria Fashion Show was indeed a victory – not only for the plus community, but for the fashion industry at large. We’re delighted to share some of our highlights from the show with you!
