As we embark on a new year, I can’t help but reflect on some amazing experiences I’ve had over the last few years I’ve been blogging. September 2013 was a month one major dream of mine came true; I was invited by a few of my favorite designers to attend New York Fashion Week. My college years were spent studding to be a buyer – ever since I was a young teenager pining for the fashion industry, buying was a direction I always saw myself going in. I also thought this was my ticket to fashion shows world wide! Paths change as they tend to but I still ended up sitting in those seats admiring the looks going down the runway and dreaming of things I’d love to wear on the blog.
This past fashion show season, one designer’s collection in particular really spoke to me with their original prints, luxurious fabrics, rich textures and sophisticated silhouettes; and that was New York designer, Sachin & Babi’s 2015 NOIR Pre-Fall collection. The collection is a breath taking ensemble of hyper-hued florals like the skirt I am wearing here. The silhouettes of each piece perfectly marry classic femininity with that fresh modern edge through the use of graphic color blocking and sheer paneling.
As I sat there admiring this Alice in Wonderland meets Marie Antoinette collection, all I could think about was how quickly I’d be able to get these pieces into my closet. My first thought was the online luxury retailer, Moda Operandi. Have you heard of them before? They are the only online destination where you can actually preorder looks straight from the runway through daily trunk shows they host. I had my fingers crossed that Sachin & Babi’s NOIR collection would be available and guess what, it finally is!
As of this last Monday, December 15 – December 22nd their collection is exclusively available for pre-order at Moda Operandi. To see the entire collection, head over to the Sachin & Babi NOIR boutique. I’ve also selected a few of my favorite looks below for you to peruse from. The pieces are perfect for your upcoming holiday soirees, spring weddings or bridal showers that I know you need to start shopping for!
