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.

Creative director Andrew Egan hung white rice paper from the ceiling to make an amazing backdrop for the models. Beautiful!


Beautiful whites. THESE ARE AH-MAZING. Better than Philip Lim, the embroidery, cut outs, details are imaginative, inspiring, and unique. And the shapes are flattering. I want to order one of everything in this image! SERIOUSLY.

The ever so talented, Mrs. Josie Natori. She was the hot ticket to talk to as everyone wanted to interview her and/or congratulate her on an amazing collection!


And of course, her shoes.

I am so in awe of my mother-in-law and Natori!  The company has been expanding from a brand most known for sleepwear to a lifestyle brand, and the ready-to-wear collection is continuing to lead the charge.  I don’t have to say this, but I honestly feel strongly about this collection — it is absolutely beautiful, crisp, clean, young, and fun. I can’t wait for Spring when these pieces are in production, and I get to wear some of them. I will keep you in the loop when they hit stores. Have a great week!

  1. The whites are amazing. Don’t think I would wear tie dye but it looks beautiful on the model

  2. Love the clothes (especially the lace cut-outs) and the hair. And of course, Yael, you look BEAUTIFUL. Go tie-dyed dress!

    • Aw shucks, thanks emma! I thought that the tie-dye dress would fit in well with the collection, and it did! You will have to come up to NYC for a special trunk show event we will be doing (whenever we get our acts together!)

  3. Wow, the collection is beautiful. I loved seeing the waiters, the food, the models, the beautiful people, and most of all Josie. Thanks for sharing.
