BFF {beyond.fabulous.finds.} Mark & Estel SS’14

Friday, September 6th, Mark & Estel made their New York Fashion Week debut in The Studio. I was lucky enough to witness it all!

In business since 2005, Spring/Summer 2014 is Mark & Estel’s 13th collection — lucky 13, I might add. The rocker-chic vibe is not by accident. Mark & Estel meld a love of fashion and of music, creating a line that is edgy, wearable and fun, with just a enough glam and girly to make me seriously swoon. No wonder the likes of Mary Kate Olsen, Lady Gaga and Jessica Simpson all love Mark & Estel designs! And what’s not to love when all pieces are U.S.A. made, baby.

Now to figure out how to work that fab feather hat into my wardrobe!

BFFs {beyond.fabulous.finds.} Jill Stuart SS’14 Collection

If you follow LaunchHER on Instagram, you already know we were in New York City last week for the kickoff of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014!
NYC is one of my most favorite cities, and you know how much I adore fashion, so you can imagine how much I just love NYC during Fashion Week. The energy and style scene is like none other.
On Saturday, Sept. 7th, we were lucky enough to attend the Jill Stuart show in The Theatre!
The show was gorgeous — clean lines, modern designs and crisp color. And those shoes!! Note to self — must track down those wedge sandals!
Here are 3 of our favorite looks. What’s not to love?!

Jill Stuart was born into the world of fashion as her parents owned a well known sportswear company in the 1960s and ‘70s, dressing many top celebrities including Lucille Ball, Natalie Wood and Sheila Macrae. Dinners were filled with industry talk of collections, fabric design and advertising campaigns. She sold her first collection of silver and leather chokers and suede fringed hobos to Bloomingdales at 15 while still attending Manhattan’s Dalton School. Jill later attended the Rhode Island School of Design.The Jill Stuart Collection began in 1993 with accessories and innovations such as the fashion backpack, cocktail mini dresses and plaid kilt skirts. The film “Clueless” featured many of the designs–from her first sportswear collection fueling her notoriety and international appeal.

Today, over 500 international Jill Stuart freestanding stores and in shops have established the designer as a best-selling commodity in fashion with product lines ranging from numerous ready-to-wear collections, cosmetics, beauty, fragrance, bridal, childrenswear, timepieces, jewelry and newly opened JILL STUART cafes.
