THE BRAND NEW FASHION NEXUS IS UP & RUNNING, & I COULDN’T BE MORE ECSTATIC!!!
I’ve written posts, summarizing my fave looks for Day 1, Day 2, & Day 3 presentations for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. So of course I can’t leave Day 4 hanging out in the cold! Remember, you can check out each designers full collection by checking out the MBFWSWIM’s Gallery page. But for now, let’s take a look at some of my fave pieces from each Day 4 designer’s showcase.
MIA Marcelle’s 2015 collection is one where almost every piece I love! And how could you not with the use of my fave color, bold royal blue, intricate details such as side cut-outs, and of course some amazing menswear pieces (male models) — love that for any runway!!
Toxic Sadie swimwear has it all — eye-catching silhouettes, bold colors, very stylish pieces for any daring woman who wants to bring some drama to her beach or pool lifestyle!
Ahhhhh! The intricacies of Aquarella’s swimwear collection for 2015 is just so mind-blowingly phenomenal — the prints, the cuts/silhouettes, and the bold hues.
These are such special pieces Aguaclara Swimwear has designed & created — eye-catching silhouettes, and of course, a little, shimmer, shine, and sparkle!
Indah Swimwear’s 2015 collection is filled to the brim with exotic appeal and vibrancy, looked to be a fun show as well!
Minimale Animale for 2015 has designed and created an out of this world collection & runway show, black & white pieces to the extreme!
Basic & wearable swimwear, but still with eye-catching details & a luxe feel, that’s Liliana Montoya Swim for 2015!
Sauvage has created some truly amazing pieces for 2015 — passionate-filled attention paid to even the tiniest of details.
For A.Z. Araujo 2015 we have menswear, resortwear, intricate one-pieces, bikinis, & more, the brand has it all!
**SIDE NOTE: Since PR is all about showing at NYFW, I have a free GIVEAWAY opportunity that is all about NYFW — 2 VIP Passes & a $3000 Visa Giftcard — Full details here!!
aka Dazed & Confused! Of course, as a blogger, we know I’m not speechless, but I’m certainly all of the other alliterative “S” adjectives I mentioned above, along with a few others in fact! Despite the shock value, it was still a great Project Runway premiere night. I enjoyed watching the full 2 and a 1/2 hours. I hadn’t watched the “meet the designer” videos on Lifetime’s website so I really enjoyed the intro episode prior to the Season 13 premiere. It was great seeing that so many designers had really persevered to get where they are today and to make it on PR, whether it was from repeat auditions or a “rags to stitches” tale. And just as I mentioned in my own introductory PR post, it was hard to tell who would leave during this 1st episode. I had some hunches, but this was just one of the many shockers I was in store for during this premiere!
So of the 18 new designers, sadly, 3 were quickly eliminated. Each designer presented a few pieces to the firing squad, aka “the judges”, Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, & Zac Posen. I’m assuming the designers presented their audition pieces, basically showcasing who they are as a designer. So my first shock of the night came from who went home right off the bat!
You could definitely tell there were some early judges’ faves. But personally, I was very surprised that both Emmanuel & Tim were cut. Maybe one, but both?? Heck, when I wrote my intro post, two of the six images I used were from them. I wouldn’t say I pegged them as potential winners, but something about their previous work did catch my eye! I wasn’t quite as shocked by Nzinga’s elimination, but I still applaud a designer who has a clear POV; it just wasn’t the judges’ POV.
But we are still very early on in the PR process and that is how the PR cookie crumbles — each week, one designer must go. We just started this season off a bit differently, with 4 gone by the 1st episode’s end. But as we bidded adieu to three designers, one was “welcomed” to the fold. America casted their votes for the Runway Redemption candidates, Ken Laurence (Season 12), Alexander Pope (Season 12), and Amanda Valentine (Season 11). I’m generally not a fan of mixing new cast members with old ones, and this is for any competitive reality show. But I always considered Season 11 a bit unfair; it was very different than every other season. And I think if the designers weren’t forced to work in groups the entire season and further, were not eliminated based on those groupings, the season might have turned out differently. So just as I rooted for Katelyn Pankoke to come back last season, my choice this year was Amanda Valentine, and it was for the same reason. So I was very happy Amanda was the one chosen! With 16 designers ready to go, it was time for them to get their 1st challenge!
The designers were to create one piece this week that would give the judges a glimpse of what their Spring 2015 collection might look like. There was of course a huge twist though, “a trunk of doom!” Each designer was given a trunk with 5 fabric options, not likely their 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd choices! The designers didn’t have the same fabrics so they were left to just create or get to bartering! I think the other designers didn’t want to give the vet much help though, so it seemed as if Amanda wasn’t able to play the trade-game. And as per PR usual, the challenge only allowed for one day so the designers were off to quickly work! Tim was also back to his norm PR mentor status, giving a great mix of helpful advice.
Back in the workroom we were already seeing a few gossip sessions going on, mainly Mitchell & Korina — highly doubt they will be the only ones though! Mitchell redeemed himself somewhat, very nice of him to help out Sandhya when he finished his look. There were very interesting moments during the model fittings this week — many designers not ready and making some determinations as to what could be hanging out a little (side-boob, etc.)! The most stress and time management issues came from Angela & Sandhya this week, but no worries, no naked models went down the runway! Sooner rather than later it was time for the runway show. Heidi announced the Tim Gunn save would be back this season and that the prize package this year was over $300K. The judges were joined this week by Emmy award winning “Modern Family” actress Julie Bowen. With so many designers presenting this week, it had to be tough naming a top and bottom 3. It was no surprise that this was where even more shockers came to fruition.
There were certainly a lot of safe looks this week. Many will have to step it up — I will hold off on names for now! But two looks I thought stood out and I was surprised weren’t given any top contention, were Korina’s tomato red look & Sean’s chic knee-length dress, pure minimalism at its best. I guess that is what happens though when you have 4 different judges scoring 16 designers!
The bottom 3 wasn’t so surprising, but because of its unpredictability with so many designers, I was going to be shocked no matter who went home. Angela’s 2-piece look certainly had some mistakes, but I saw some other mistakes go down the runway too. There was a lot going on in this look, and with how much airtime she got this week, you could definitely see her bottom 3 placement coming! But I wouldn’t peg her as a repeat offender quite yet. I think she can bounce back!
Mitchell was another bottom 3 placement I wasn’t so surprised by. Tim wasn’t a fan of this look either. I think he mixed his fabric choices well, but the look was very basic, definitely not a show-stopper. It also seemed very “junior” and for this show, that is not what the judges are looking for.
The big surprise of the bottom 3 was not Jefferson’s placement, but that he went home. I was not a fan of his prior work because I’m not a fan of drop crotch pants. The main issue with this look was exactly what Nina said — proportions, mainly, the shorts were toooooooo short! I don’t think he should have gone home though. But Heidi seemed to not dislike Mitchell’s look quite as much as the others so I’m guessing Heidi had the final say-so on this one!
While the bottom was not so jaw-dropping, the top 3 was a completely different story. I, like pretty much every other designer, thought Sandhya was for sure in the bottom. I didn’t think she would go home, but to find out she was in the top, needless to say I was stunned. However, later finding out she was the night’s winner, I kind of went from shocked to disappointed. In certain PR seasons, the judges hang onto a fave (Patricia Michaels, Anya Ayoung-Chee, Alexandria von Bromssen). America is not always on the same page! I’m hoping Sandhya is not that token fave this season that will get by with work such as this just because the judges have drank some crazy Kool-aid and are in a love-fest! The judges said Angela’s look had far too much going on, well what the heck do they think this is — frayed edges, capped sleeves, dyes, prints, etc. Based off of Sandhya’s prior work, I also don’t think anything in her collection would look like this. And also, with this floral curtain-like print, the dye, the color chosen, it just looks like a stained old piece of drapery. I am still completely baffled by this decision, but that’s PR for you!
I think based on the task at hand and with who the judges picked for the top 3, Char should have won. This looked like a piece Char would actually have in her collection and it also read “Spring!”
But Amanda too had a very chic and well put together look. If this is the new Amanda aesthetic, I can’t wait to see more. I’m not sure if it screamed “Spring”, but I could see it being in Amanda’s wheelhouse. And I disagree with Julie on the use of the pattern. A basic top and pants would have been a yawner! But the print made the pants pop and I was also impressed by the great fit they had.
For my stand-out Aldo accessories look, I pick fäde zu grau — statement jewelry pieces (bracelet & necklace), but not over-the-top or overshadowing the look, & simple, elegant black heels. I also think he did a great job of intermixing his printed fabrics for the skirt portion of his dress.
Yes!! I’m so excited that Project Runway, Season 13, is back on Lifetime, kicking off later today. I always look forward to blogging about PR and the amazing interactions I have with fellow PR fans. But before the 1st episode tonight, I thought I would put together a little introductory post. First up, let’s discuss the “Runway Redemption”!
PR decided to bring back the “Runway Redemption” twist from last season, which gives a previous designer the chance to get back in the workroom. One change for this year is that with the return of a previous designer, it will make for a total of 19 total designers competing. But in reality there is 1 final audition for this group of designers and 3 will not make the final cut. Last year’s recipient, Katelyn Pankoke, and her chance for runway redemption, was a bit more full-proof. But this year, with 3 designers being cut so quickly, will a full runway redemption happen??
My prediction is yes, since the 3 who are competing for the runway redemption are already familiar with the PR process. The 3 designers who competed for America’s votes were Ken Laurence (Season 12), Alexander Pope (Season 12), and Amanda Valentine (Season 11). Kate also took part in Season 11, you know, the one with all of the forced team competitions. That season to me always seemed a bit unfair. I still contend it would have ended differently had the designers not been eliminated based on the bottom group. There were always a couple of designers in the higher scoring group who were only saved because they were in the top group. Because of that, I rooted for Kate to have a real shot at the title and so with that, I also rooted for Amanda. But it’s anyone’s guess and I imagine whomever America chose will be a force to be reckoned with during Season 13!
Another major PR twist is also returning — the Tim Gunn Save! Justin LeBlanc received the save last season so I wonder who, if anyone, might be awarded the save this year. Also in store this season is the ever-famous and popular accessories wall and this year’s sponsor is ALDO. No Michael Kors again, but everyone else is back as per norm — Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Zac Posen, & Tim. In addition, there will be some huge guest judges joining “Project Runway” this season — Emmy award winning “Modern Family” actress Julie Bowen, Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss from “Mad Men,” Shay Mitchell from hit series “Pretty Little Liars,” Olympic gold medalist downhill skier Lindsey Vonn, entertainer Dita Von Teese, fashion designer Christian Siriano, British television personality and renowned photographer Amanda de Cadenet, and YouTube celebrity Bethany Mota.
I thought about going thru each designer’s past work, picking a few faves, who might go home first, etc. But really, 18 designers are just way too many to go thru. And then 3 are going home in the 1st episode!! It’s just way too hard to predict at this point, but I did put together some initial thoughts for each designer. In addition, I’ve selected a few fave pieces of previous work from a few of the designers, so here goes –
- Alexander Knox — I see Alexander likes to play with volume and is a little more on the avant garde side. Will timing be his downfall? Can he create RTW?
- Angela Sum — Angela clearly has done bridal & already had some runway experience. This should be a huge advantage for her in this process.
- Carrie Sleutskaya — A designer who creates both womenswear & menswear — huge plus!
- Char Glover — A little lacking in past work examples compared to other designers so will this impact her longevity in the competition??
- Emily Payne — Designs with comfort & wearability, but can she design at a higher level of fashion??
- Emmanuel Tobias — Looks for men, looks for women — I’m seeing someone who can definitely put on a show! Early fave, maybe so!
- fäde zu grau — A streetwear/urban designer, very different, I wonder how he will fare in the competition.
- Hernan Lander — He has presented during NYFW/MBFW. I’ve even been invited to his shows, but was not able to attend to see his work firsthand. But I expect he can go far in this competition. He’s already had celebs wear his pieces too — Rumer Willis??
- Jefferson Musanda — I see he can create his designs, but he might have to step it up for PR — peplum & drop crotch pants won’t be enough for the win. So can Jefferson push it to the max?!?
- Korina Emmerich — We know Nina loves a good jacket and/or coat — will these 2 be Fashion Besties!
- Kini Zamora — He seems to have a great range so it should translate nicely on PR.
- Kristine Guico — She’s not afraid of bold prints or daring silhouettes, but will the judges be fans?
- Mitchell Perry — Another designer with a wide range, but will his POV come across clearly to the judges?
- Nzinga Knight — On the other hand, a designer with a clear POV, but will the judges love it?
- Samantha Plasencia — Editorial, made for print, also some looks for men, another who should be ready and raring to go for this grueling PR process.
- Sandhya Garg — A woman who can design for women, but another one I could see who may need to step it up for this design competition, push the boundaries more.
- Sean Kelly — 1st designer of this bunch who designs for men, but I didn’t see any pieces for women, yikes!
- Tim Navarro — A lot of versatile designers in this bunch, including Tim, who design for both men & women, handles on separates — should make for an interesting season!
And of course, we can’t forget PR’s major prize package –
- $100,000 from Red Robin to launch their business and the opportunity to design a fashion accessory for all the Red Robin servers — NOT SURE ON THIS PRIZE STILL, NO CAPSULE COLLECTION OR DIRECT WAY TO GET A DESIGNER’S 1ST PIECES TO CONSUMERS & FANS??
- a complete sewing and crafting studio from Brother International Corporation
- a premiere entertainment center, courtesy of Samsung
- a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine
- a car from Lexus
- from Mary Kay, an entire year’s worth of beauty products for their fashion shows and professional makeup artist services for their debut show
- a shoe and accessory collection from ALDO to help enhance their upcoming runway shows
- Best Western International will also provide the winner travel and hotel accommodations to fashion capitals and inspiring locations around the world — IS THERE A BEST WESTERN THEN IN MILAN, PARIS, GUESS SO!
- The winning model will also appear in the winner’s fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine.

WOW — No denying Luli Fama’s presentation was the runway party to be at — dancers, bright colors/hues, bold/exotic prints, head to toe looks, intricate cuts, & more!
Suboo is the swimwear brand with a great deal to offer — daring one-pieces, innovative bikinis, and trendy jackets as cover-ups.

Out of this world swimwear, just use your imagination with Jankele Swimwear.
No surprise that a brand like Gottex, who has been in the swimwear business for over 50 years, can put out pieces such as these eye-catching prints & silhouettes.
Belusso is presenting the brand’s signature style of a luxe & laid-back lifestyle at its best for 2015 — metallic silvers, exotic prints, & soothing, sunset prints.
Beachwear, seeing the essence of an Hawaiian lifestyle, that is what you find with Meegan Elizabeth Hawaii for 2015!
Looking at the various designers for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim makes me very excited about the swimwear to come for 2015! Miami Beach was definitely the place to be this past weekend. Over 50 designers presented their 2015 collections and you can view any designer’s full collection by checking out the MBFWSWIM’s Gallery page. But for now, let’s take a look at some of my fave pieces from each Day 2 designer’s showcase.
Maaji’s runway presentation was I’m sure a “Can’t Miss” — pieces for both men & women (so basically great looking models workin’ it on the catwalk!), trendy pieces, bold prints, & looks that just scream “fun”! How can you beat that?!?
If you are in need of daring, bold, dramatic, or statement-making prints for your swimwear needs, I’m sure you instantly think of Mara Hoffman’s swimwear pieces.
Cia.Maritima, a brand with pieces where it’s hard to deny true passion, love, and inspiration, a very celebratory & inspired line.
It’s hard to imagine how intricate design fits into minimalism, but Mikoh has struck that creative balance — simplistically chic & minimal swimwear, but eye-catching intricacies to be found in each piece!
L*Space’s presentation was head to toe, a full-on and spectacular swimwear presentation — knits, bikinis, one-pieces, cover-ups, pearl jewelry accessories, & more! Everything was just thought of so creatively, even the tiniest of details.
Rip Curl is the brand that perfectly infuses trendy swimwear with that of activewear or sportswear, and does so quite amazingly with this 2015 runway presentation.
Caitlin Kelly’s work for 2015 is just immaculate — stunning prints, gorgeous silhouettes, & bold color choices!!
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim is ongoing & I’m ecstatic to be looking thru each designers’ 2015 collections — ahhhh, if only I could have been there, Miami Beach, in person! If you are just as excited as I am, but are also unable to be there in person, you can keep up with everything online thru MBFWSWIM’s Live Social page. And to view any designer’s full collection, you can check out the MBFWSWIM’s Gallery page. But for now, let’s take a look at some of my fave pieces from each Day 1 designer’s showcase.
This is a collection that you just have to peruse & enjoy altogether and for yourself. Each piece is different, bold, stunning, and unique, but most importantly, it becomes an instant fave! These are just the type of fun, flirty, and statement-making pieces you would want to be in for a fab day at the beach.
The dynamic husband & wife duo have done it again — innovative and imaginative designs for some bold swimwear choices. Each piece looks great and offers something new, very eye-catching.
It was very hard choosing a few Poko Pano faves from this 2015 collection — lots of great choices!! I enjoyed the collection’s unique appeal, from dramatic silhouettes to bold prints.
I’m not sure if with Beach Bunny Swimwear if I’m going to the actual beach, or maybe instead, a concert. But one thing I know for sure — you can’t deny these looks are sexy, kick-ass, hot, rockin’, and would definitely grab the attention of every passer-by or onlooker at your chosen destination.
What an inspired collection?!? Clover Canyon is generally all about imaginative journeys and you can definitely see how this collection represents the brand’s mantra; it really sticks to the Clover Canyon aesthetic, all the while offering even more options for the brand’s customers.
When I think of Frankie’s Bikinis, I think chic minimalism, but with a twist. The pieces are wearable and stick to the basics of what swimwear should be, but there are intricate details that really set the brand apart.
Finding the perfect bikini or 1-piece for your fun day at the beach or the pool is of course essential, but so is finding the perfect cover-up. Sinesia Karol is the brand that can help with both of those needs!
Dolores Cortés‘ 2015 presentation looks to be a celebration of fun, a non-stop party. There are some intriguing fabric manipulations and cuts — very innovative.
And that’s the way it should be when it comes to customized jewelry. Auburn Jewelry is a custom jewelry brand I’ve come across from since launching Fashion Nexus. I had the distinct pleasure of meeting one-on-one with the brand’s founder, Samantha Auburn Levine. Needless to say, I am IMPRESSED & am happy to share this wonderfully unique brand with the Fashion Nexus community!
Auburn Jewelry is a brand that offers exclusive lines of high-quality sterling silver, 14k gold, brass, copper, and enamel pieces.

And when making your selections, REMEMBER, there are lots of colors to choose from as well — 18 to be specific! This includes “New Fall Colors” such as Burnt Orange and Chocolate Brown, and ” Brand Best Sellers” such as Hot Pink and Mint Green.
Samantha is a true talent and visionary with each piece she creates, and of course, she strives to make customer satisfaction a top priority. That is why there are so many options when it comes to placing an order. And for those wishing to make an even more personalized statement of style, commissioned pieces are also available by request.

So my first couple of posts are up for Nolcha Fashion Week, introducing the fashion week event & continuing the countdown with even more designers set to present. There are a couple of more designers added to the line-up and I will get to them at the end of this post. But for now, let’s take an even closer look and get to know even better one of the designer brands presenting at NFW — Monstruosité.
Monstruosité was launched in 2010 by designer and creative director Dolly Donshey, with a clear vision and mission of being a high fashion millinery brand. The main focus was to look beyond the actual design, to bring the concepts to life by integrating music, art, and theatrical elements. Monstruosité pieces have such a keen eye to the details and are always pushing the boundaries by experimenting with the unexpected. The company releases two lines seasonally, a couture line of statement pieces especially created for celebrities, stylists, and fashionistas around the globe, and a ready-to-wear collection for the everyday woman to look both confident and sexy.
Again, the creative eye and visionary talent behind Monstruosité is Dolly Donshey. Dolly studied the art of hat-making under renowned milliner Jan Wutkowski. As far as Dolly & Monstruosité being a part of Nolcha Fashion Week, here is what she has to say — “My team and I are so excited to be a part of Nolcha Fashion Week because this event truly embodies the energy and creativity of independent designers and gives us a platform to share our vision to the world.”
There is a likely unknown, yet fun fact about Monstruosité that I’m sure you would be surprised to know — I certainly was! The concept for every collection is conceived and solidified within about & ONLY 15 minutes. WOW! It of course takes time to then bring the concept to life and full form, but rarely is there a deviation from the original concept or design plan. Make sure to check out all of the brand’s previous collections, from “Frostbite” to “Cycles” to “Lola.” You can also check out and enjoy some fun fashion films about the brand. And there are also several categories you can shop from if you see some pieces you enjoy — “Statement”, “Casual”, “Matrimony”, “The Races”, & “On Sale” pieces. Or you can take part of a full one-on-one special process and place a “Custom Order.”
Monstruosité has received quite a bit of featured press, from celebs such as Carmen Electra donning one of the brand’s creations to major features in publications such as Zink, Gothesque, Vogue, Coco, En Vie, & more! The brand truly does create some very unique pieces. It would be hard not to stand out as a major fashionista in a Monstruosité original. Make sure you keep fully updated with the brand thru social media — you can check out its Tumblr page, Like on Facebook, or Follow on Twitter.
So remember, as Monstruosité would say, THOU SHALT BE MONSTROUS!!
And now, let’s check out 2 more designers who are in the line-up to present for Nolcha Fashion Week.
Haupt speaks to a casual elegance, a designer brand focused on high quality and wearable shirts.
The Katty Xiomara woman is Elegant, voluptuous, poetic, idyllic and romantic.
