Josie Natori RTW Spring 2016 Fashion Presentation

With New York Fashion Week in full swing, I was delighted to attend the Spring 2016 Josie Natori Fashion presentation yesterday. It was a striking, beautiful, breathtaking and unique experience. And as always, I am incredibly proud of and impressed by my talented mother-in-law and her whole design team. BRAVO for a fabulous production.  And BRAVO to the team for making the FRONT COVER of Women’s Wear Daily this morning!!!  Read the glowing review here.

Natori Office: The Showroom

On this blog, we have had the privilege of seeing some aspects of my mother-in-law (Josie Natori)’s home; her (sick and drool-worthy OMG I NEED IT NOW) closet  and the (incredible, chic, and original) silver bathroom in herapartment. And now, we have the opportunity to take a sneak-peek look at the Natori Office in NYC (I highlighted my mother in law’s office here — the office within the office). Come take a tour of where the magic at Natori happens! First stop: 18th Floor (come back Friday for more on the 19th Floor).

Once you exit the elevator, you see “Natori” written across the wall. Most impressed = Cruzzie. N A T O R I.

Josie Natori RTW Fall 2015 Fashion Show

On a freezing (think 20 degrees and windy) but beautiful day, the Josie Natori Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear show took place at the DiMenna Center in Midtown Manhattan yesterday.  And as always, the collection was incredible — details, embroidery, intricacy, the works. A well put together collection of looks inspired by Istanbul; where East meets West. Once again, huge congratulations to the whole Natori team, and my creative Mother-In-Law!

Yes, my 2.5 year old daughter got her own personal invitation to a fashion show. However, this time around, she did not join us, as in September, she stood on one leg, while my son sat on the other (not that fun for me).

Josie Natori RTW Spring 2015 Fashion Show

On the first day of Fashion week, Josie Natori presented her beautiful SS 2015 Ready-To-Wear collection with high praise! Summery, colorful, classic, and chic ensembles slithered through the floors at The DiMenna Center.  All the looks were breath-taking, elegant, and wearable. Like always, I can’t wait to get my hands on the luxurious clothes. Huge congratulations to mom and the entire design team!

Josie Natori RTW Fall 14 Fashion Show

Not snow, not rain, not freezing rain, not 8 inch deep puddles of slush could keep people away from attending the Josie Natori RTW Fall 2014 show! Despite being smack dab in the middle of a snow storm (thank you, Mother Nature), the show went on. And what a great success it was! Such luxurious glamour, warmth, attitude, and chicness. I can’t wait to get a hand on these items! Congratulations, MIL! Here are some photos from the show.

UPDATE:  Mom made the cover of WWD!  Unbelievable.  Click here to see the review and see the COVER below!:

Fashion Week! Josie Natori Show

Nothing better than starting the work week with a big party!  Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending the Spring/Summer 2013 Josie Natori Ready-to-wear Fashion Show. And HOLY COW, the collection was absolutely exquisite. So beautiful that I am already jotting down the outfits that I need. Not only were the pieces well thought out, detailed, beautiful, wearable, flattering, and unique, but the whole scenery of the show was absolutely breath-taking. The models were situated like paintings in an art exhibit — the white backdrop highlighted the divine collection of clothes. Ladies, come Spring 2013, you better HAUL your tushes to the stores.
