How kick ass are those mint-colored, sky-high platforms from Olcay Gulsen?!!! Dare I say "move over Charlotte Olympia"? Anyhow, these are just a few tantalizing shots from a styling job we did recently. Check out the amazing HSN Iman Global Chic neckparty too, amazing!
Last week, Heights of Fashion had the honor of attending the 14th Brasil Dragão Fashion Week in the Dragão do Mar de Arte e Cultura in Fortaleza.
ABIT, an organization established to champion the export and promotion of Brazilian products, remarkably organized the press tour which included all-inclusive lodging in the modern beach-front Beach Park Wellness Resort in Fortaleza and front row seating!
HOF took in every high fashion moment, compiled highlights of our favorite looks and succinctly reviewed each.
Like Marc Jacobs, we're gonna start this thing with a closer ;-)
How incredible is this virginally delicate white crochet, laced finale dress?!! Haven't seen a beaming bride like this yet.. So naughty and nice!
Mar del Castro
Nothing says boho-chic more than a Jane Birkin-esque white crochet dress! We've been searching for the perfect white crochet pieces and Mar del Castro had those gems secretly tucked away in Fortaleza until their unveiling this night. We literally were seconds away from ambushing the girls on the runway.
No secret Heights of Fashion is obsessed with anything that shines bright like a diamond. These 3 looks above mesmerized us as they walked by. The beading was impeccable, the cut-out design was innovative and the sexiness was palpable. From head to toe, this is totally HOF style ;-)
This particular finale look had us gripped to our seats! The excess plumage, the well-crafted cropped top with abundant skirt combo, the undone yet well-done high pony, and daring eyewear ! Talk about a show-stopper..
We marveled at the richness of the debutante-like evening gowns that paraded down the runway. We wanted to eat them up like Baked by Melissa cupcakes!
Lights went out, sounds of rain and thunder engulfed the venue while these ghostly, maximally-clad beauties strutted past us. Need we say more??
Robot chic alert! Silveiro pushed the androgyny lines with this color-blocking collection. We enjoyed his play with fabrics and bold colors. And yes, we need the eyewear asap!
A few heavy-hitting looks on this runway..Starting with the ever popular print-on print fad right down to the black on black vestige. The men's fashion ruled here though..
Heights of Fashion would like to send our deepest gratitude to our lovely host, Ms. Vivian Peres, who helped us soldier through each event with the patience of a saint. That genuine Brazilian hospitality shined through at every moment! We'd also like to thank ABIT for making all this happen. We were truly blessed to acquire this experience. Until next time! Beijos e abraços, Gisela & Maury of Heights of Fashion
If you guys follow my instagram, you were probably bombarded with tons of pics of my Cap Cana trip in early March with my boyfriend. We had an amazing time and it was our first trip together...felt like we were in our honey moon :). We stayed at the marvelous Sanctuary Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic. This was one of the first vacations I have ever taken where I mainly stayed in the hotel instead of venturing out and exploring the country, which happens to be my country this time. Cap Cana is truly a secluded paradise with it's white sand beaches and a slew of greenery and palm trees. The service at Sanctuary has to be one of the best I have ever received! Thanks to the whole crew for making this vacation one to remember forever! Hope you enjoyed my pics of being a vacation zombie around the hotel!
I was going through my Iphoto archives and noticed that I still had some pics from this blog posting that I never posted. As I was walking around Inwood, I encountered a mural with the words "All you need is love." Sometimes when things are not going in the direction you want them to go, you must take a breather, slow down, and really see what surrounds you. At this moment in my life, I have been blessed with an abundance of love, kindness and understanding! I hope you guys have a wonderful Easter weekend and always be grateful for all the things you have! Life is beautiful and there is def. a lot of love to go around!
