In the midst of Fashion Week Spring 2013, I am presenting you my second write up of the Fall 2012 collections I took in earlier this year. Check out Part 1! In Part 2, My final Fall 2012 recap will feature designers Rafael Cennamo, Ruffian, Vantan Toyko, Venexiana, Tibi and Lorena Sarbu.


Rafael Cennamo Fall 2012 Collection

One of my favorite new designer on the rise is Rafael Cennamo. His Fall 2012 is what Hollywood Stylists should keep a tab on. I attended his presentation earlier year and I was stunned beyond belief at the hand crafted dresses. My first thought was “He deserves a Major Hollywood Red Carpet moment–Like the Oscars”

I am still rooting and crossing my fingers for that dream to come true for Rafael. He has a big future ahead of him! Take a look at my favorite looks below from this collection to find out why.

My favorite looks are below:

Ruffian Fall 2012 Collection

First time seeing their collection up close at the Lincoln center. They are known for their 9 am wake up calls at the MBFW and this collection was a morning booster, to say the least.

My favorite looks are below:

Vantan Toyko Fall 2012 Collection

Fun and super super chic. As a lover for all things print and my tomboy personality, I could not be more happier seeing this collection. A modern take on Abstract Art if you ask me!

My Favorite looks are below:

Venexiana Fall 2012 Collection

They call her the Rock n’ Roll of Haute Couture. Her pieces may not be for everyone but you cannot fault her bravery and confidence for being out there with her 70 look collections. I enjoy her shows because they are simply fun to watch!

My favorite looks are below:

Tibi Fall 2012 Collection

One of my favorite collections from Tibi. Cozy at its finest.

My favorite looks are below:

Lorena Sarbu Fall 2012 Collection

Another new designer on the rise. Sharp collection and presentation of looks destined for the Red Carpet spotlight!
