Tommy Hilfiger FW15 backstage // New York Fashion Week

Posted on February 18, 2015

 

Two days ago I had the pleasure to take pictures at Tommy Hilfiger FW15 backstage. It was all about American football, mix of sportswear & elegance from the 70’s. For me the most important thing in my everyday style is that balance, to look elegant, but not too smart. Or to look sporty but at the same time classy, elegant and feminine. These are also my feelings about the collection. I could wear every single look from the runway.

Elle Poland, January 2015, London,  ph. by me

Sometimes I like to be on the other side of the camera. And this was one of those times, when I shot streetstyle pictures at London Men’s Fashion Week of guests and models busying themselves between the shows. It was an exterem pleasure for me to have my pictures published by Elle Poland. It was so important to me, mainly because I used to read Elle as a young girl, with a torchlight under my sheets when my mum had already turned the lights off.

So head over to Elle’s website to see the full story here. And I hope the fun doesn’t end there! I am now off for a month of travelling between fashion weeks, with my camera safely in my luggage. To me photography is like smoking, once you had a first taste, you would want to have more!

Have a lovely weekend guys!

Golden hour in Soho // NYFW, Day 4

Posted on September 21, 2014

 

This is my outfit from the 4th day of New York Fashion Week. I was wearing my new Reformation transparent dress which is easily the most beautiful thing I have ever owned. The pictures were taken straight after the TIBI show in Chelsea. The sun was at that point in the sky that it was shining golden, so we just jumped into the cab, straight to Soho and took a few snaps. The light shawn through my dress and to be honest I looked a bit naked, but the effect was incredible. The weather was like that most of my stay, which was a really nice change, since I could go round bare legged once again, so summery! Also I wanted to talk a bit about my new Stella McCartney shoes. These were probably the most hunted down shoes I ever bought. They were sold out in every single department store in London and online stores around the world, and when I was about to give up, someone returned the last pair in my little size 35 to the flagship Stella store in Mayfair. I was so excited, because they went well with all my outfits and were super comfortable to walk in. And then a massive let down.. I got horrible blisters! They were so bad I couldn’t move, I was beating myself up trying to figure out what was wrong with them, and then it dawned on me. Stella is vegetarian and she never uses animal materials in her garments, so the shoes weren’t made of real leather. And that was the problem, because synthetic leather + skin = blisters and irritation. I’m all for animal rights but one has to put their opinions on hold when making something as important as a shoe to ensure it is wearable and doesn’t inflict pain. I’m really disappointed in them, these would be the perfect shoes if they were real leather. Now, I’m still nursing my blisters almost two weeks later.

West Village

I came back from NY a few days. I had a great time during fashion week, not only because of the shows I had a chance to see, but also because I could explore NY better than one month ago and spend a time with my sister who I haven’t seen for a long time. I fell in love in NY more than ever. We’ve been staying in a lovely The Jade hotel in Greenwich Village, as I wrote on my Instagram one of my favourite area in New York. Maybe it’s because it brings me back Portobello and Notting Hill. The architecture is quite similiar, there is the same artistic atmosphere in the air and it’s more green than other parts of Manhattan. You know that flowers and trees always make me smile and I just felt like home in West Village.

Let’s talk about my outfit. I was wearing my number one piece from A/W14 season, a jumper from Isabel Marant runway collection I’ve been thinking since I saw it in Paris last February. It turned out to be super warm, oversized and suits to all bottoms I wear everyday, from trousers to skirts. Sounds like a perfect autumn jumper! This time I matched it with a simple black skirt, high heel sandals and a gold hoop earrings which I wear pretty much everyday. They give that cool bohemian look and brings my back this video clip. ( 2:35 sec ! ). Stay tuned for more pictures from New York!

London Fashion Week has now officially started! And which better way to kick it off than to get well pampered and looking fabulous. I paired up with Max Factor make up artists to create my own perfect fashion week skin look. During my personalised ‘skin session’ at St Martin’s Lane Hotel, Caroline Barnes, a Max Factor make up artist, showed me how to create a radiant, luminous base using simple products as Max Factor Skin Luminizer. It’s actually extra important during LFW to look good on and off camera so a good skin is crucial. Don’t forget to follow me on instagram (@alicezielasko) for more LFW magic.
