Entitled "Fear of Losing The Existence," the themed showcase honors Singapore's Golden Jubilee. Clang's photos figuratively illustrate the erosion of memory once death becomes loved ones.

Fashion Underground: The World of Susanne Bartsch at the Museum at FIT; Realistic mannequin looks just like Susanne Bartsch

With guest-list in hand, a lifelike replica of Susanne Bartsch leads a line of mannequins en maquillage, greeting guests at an alley-like entrance to the Museum at FIT's Fashion Underground exhibit. Behind closed doors, black walls, disco balls and 80+ designer-clad divas pay tribute to the 'Queen of NYC Nightlife' in a club-themed showcase of clothing as a means of transformation. From her first party in 1986 to the weekly productions almost 30 years later, Susanna Bartsch continues to unite the creatively energetic in a flamboyant ecosystem of self-expression.

Louboutin display at Saks Fifth Ave

Vanity strikes a pose in the windows of Saks Fifth Ave. In Louboutin's lustrous display, a peacock with spines of lipstick poses proudly. Passers-by become the pleasant face of the perched peafowl. Down the way, a Halloween-themed workshop and Louboutin lounge project scenes built around the red-soled shoes.

Capsule and Axis at Pier 94 in NYC

TGIF! Rounding out the week, here is a recap of international style standouts at last weekend's (capsule).

Consumers are reaching for brands that push the envelope--with better materials--to create a balanced wardrobe of fast fashion and luxe labels. As the European Fashion Weeks complete their cycles, inspirational energy spills into the marketplace with emerging designers. Keep reading for a few foreign favorites...

Collecting marketing materials + magazines from (capsule) show

After a stretch of searching for career stability, the decision to replace visionary volatility with superficial success is fully in effect. As a bi-product, late nights and last minute deadlines limit my intake of Fashion Week activities. Life as a Libra leans towards ensuring balance, and so a portion of my weekend is set aside for stylistic exploration. Returning to the (capsule) and Axis shows this year, I spy new faces in fashion presenting progressive Spring/Summer 2016 styles. Keep reading for a few of my domestic designer favorites (and stay tuned for international picks)...
