New York Fashion Week / DAY 1

That’s it. I achieved everything I set for 2018 and it’s only February. How crazy is that? This was my biggest dream since 3rd of July 2011, the day I started with Blush. New York Fashion Week was something that I could only dream of, watching it season by season of Project Runway, the show I am absolutely obsessed with. I honestly would never dare to think that I could achieve something so big, but hey, look at where I am today. Standing in front of the entrance of my first NYFW runway show. Dreams really do come true and this is a living proof of that.

So let me take you on my journey and describe how everything began.

I got the tickets 10 days before the beginning which meant that everything had to be planned last minute. But we did it, in less than a week. The long-awaited Wednesday the 8th of Februar finally came. We started at 5:00 am, on a snowy cold morning in Ljubljana. We were so scared that our flight would be canceled, but after we arrived at the Marco Polo Airport in Venice, Italy, everything was going according to plan - we boarded the airplane for transfer flight to Moscow. Yes, Moscow, in the beginning of February. It was -12 degrees Celsius so it wasn’t the most pleasant travelling experience, I’m not gonna lie. After arriving to JFK in the evening, we travelled to our hotel near Times Square. 

Am I dreaming? Is this really happening.

Yes, this is really happening. We woke up exhausted after 24-hour long journey, but we had to move quickly, because our first show started at 10:00 am. I was jet-legged, nervous, excited and happy all at the same time. Colovos was my first ever New York Fashion Week runway show - authentic collective vision of longtime husband and wife collaborator Michael and Nicole Colovos. Their minimalist design was the perfect way of kicking off these crazy experience.

Colovos exquisitely constructed clothing is perfect for a modern woman. Their aesthetic is a blend of clean, architectural lines, beautiful fabrics and thoughtfully considered details. Colovos blend traditional tailoring with modern minimal shapes to create a new take on an everyday clothing. The F/W 2018 collection was inspired by the idea of the matriarch - how woman finds strength in vulnerability over might. Protected by the shelter of soundness and security, the soft overcomes the hard in both expression and fabrications.

my favourite outfits from the show (minimalist, sleek, with a pop of colour)

This season Colovos has eliminated traditional animal skins, furs and leathers replacing each with faux variations. An orange check fabric is made of recycled bottles extracted from the ocean, and draped in variations of a twisted form fitting dress to relaxed trench. The process of making this fabric reduces the traditional footprint by 95 percent.

All black everything. 

So now for my outfit. I really wanted to include/represent Slovenian designers at NYFW (the rest you will see in later posts, I can’t expose all my outfits just yet, so you’ll have to wait and see). Because of Colovos’ minimalist approach to design I decided to wear Janja Videc black cotton dress from her Basics collection. I paired it with black wide-leg trousers from Zara, an oversized black puffer jacket also from Zara and accessorised everything with a pair of Adidas Stan Smith trainers, a grey H&M beanie, Alexander McQueen handbag and another Janja Videc piece, black earrings from her F/W 2017 collection. Last but not least - because of my extreme jet-leg I decided to put on black Le Specs sunglasses, just to fix the situation a bit.

Stay tuned!

This sums up my first day in New York. My dreams came true. I was cheesy today I know, but I really can’t help myself this time. I need to set a few new goals for this year. I’ve never been to New York before, so seeing the Empire State Building, Central Park and that famous Friends building is still so exciting to me. I can’t wait to share more with you really soon.
