Who do you think is our First Family of Fashion? Fashion Reverie weighs in.

According to Andre Leon Talley we have a “First Family of Fashion.” Kim, Kanye, and baby North may be Talley’s choice, but others beg to differ.

Ricardo Seco Spring 2015

“My collection DREAMS is a collaboration with the Wixárika, an indigenous community from Mexico, who are known for their beading. As they create each beaded piece they put their dreams into their work...I made a collection for future dreams and the next generation that will live and work here. This collection [is] standing for the generation of future dreamers to come.”

Ricardo Seco seeks to firmly put Mexico on the fashion map with his current collection for spring 2015, entitled “DREAMS.” Staying true to his Mexican origins, Seco was inspired by the Wixárika tribe and incorporated the beading and multi-colored details of the native community into this collection.…

Does Betsey Johnson still have it? #SS15 #NYFW

Betsey Johnson looked to the theme of marriage equality for inspiration for her spring 2015 collection. As always, Betsey Johnson’s runway shows are fun, frolicky, and at times a bit frivolous. The overarching question now is, after all these years does this design icon still have it, or is she just…

2014 Annual Gala | UCOF Academy | Empowering Youth through Fashion Education

Fashion Reverie congratulates United Colors of Fashion on their fourth annual gala. United Colors of Fashion (UCOF) Academy is a New York City-based nonprofit organization dedicated to providing fashion-focused education, mentorship and counseling, internship opportunities, entrepreneurial development, and scholarships to under-resourced youth.

This years' gala theme is “Paper Dreams: Writing New Runways;” paying homage to the dreams of the students, who are ultimately the driving force behind UCOF's mission of empowering youth through fashion education. It is the dreams they have written down on paper that will redefine the fashion industry of the future. In preparation for their fashion debut, they will present their own collections on the night of the gala, including a collection of paper dresses, which will be put on display.

The gala will be hosted by famed photographer Mike Ruiz. Among this year's honorees are model Devyn Abdullah, Season 1 winner of The Face, Meck Khalfan, CEO of Puku, and fashion designer Malan Breton. The gala will also feature the work of designers Malan Breton (New York), Amparo and Bisila Couture by Amaparo Chorda (Spain), David Tlale (South Africa), Loin Cloth & Ashes by Anisa Mpungwe (Tanzania), Catou by Berny Martin (Haiti), and Agatha Ruiz de la Prada (Spain).

To make a donation or purchase tickets for the gala, visit

Everyone’s success stems from a dream. As young, starry-eyed hopefuls, our students have all their dreams written down on pieces of paper, which are the incubators of their talent and ultimate success. As their dreams translate to reality, they will become the ones who change the way runways present…

"Aloof and magical, this woman marches to her own beat, always in control of her amorous interludes, inspired by earth elements and the inner workings of otherworldly manifestations." Michael Costello Couture #SS15 #NYFW

For spring 2015 Michael Costello looked to the goddess inside every woman. This goddess, supernatural spirit inhabits forests, fields, caves, lakes and the sea. She is alluring to men and attracts to the attention of gods and demigods. Aloof and magical, this woman marches to her own beat, always in…

Using the 1933 film “Flying Down To Rio” and the Peter Allen song “Go To Rio” as inspiration, Miller turned her eye for translating themes into a collection that was sexy, fun and full of tropical heat. But fear not, Miller fans.

The SKIN collection from Custo Barcelona brings warm weather vibes

For spring/summer 2015 there is lots of sheer fabrics, bare skin and more bare skin. And no body does bare skin better than Custo Barcelona. Aptly named this SKIN collection emphasized the sensuality of the feminine silhouette, allowing the sexual, and sometimes sassy side of women to come out, fron…

A brilliant spin on florals by Monique Lhuillier! #SS15 #NYFW #florals

Florals for spring, an original thought, right? Not. And it has been done ad nauseam. Which is why the brilliant way Monique Lhuillier incorporated this overused inspiration in her spring 2015 collection proves that she is a genius in linear thought development as well as design and construction.

Lucio Castro references cinematic beach scenes from 1970s foreign cinema in this spring 2015 collection. (Think Luchino Visconti’s Death in Venice (1971).) Mix this reference in with “Soviet summers” in the beach towns of Odessa and Sopot and Castro’s Argentinian roots and you have a dynamic hodgepo…

Impeccable tailoring but a ho-hum color palette from Bespoken Spring 2015. #NYFW

Bespoken’s creative directors Lian and Sammy Fayed play up the idea that less is more in their spring 2015 collection. They posit the point of view that the male consumer wants fashionable, easy, relaxed clothes that fit into their everyday lives. In that respect, the Fayeds are correct. Still, mens…
