Custo Barcelona’s Fall Winter 2018-19 collection was designed for women “wanting to freely express their individuality and strength in the face of life’s many challenges.”  We knew he had a penchant for colors and prints so we wore a coordinated set of trendy velvet blues and wines, leopard coats and a floral print on my dress.  And much to our expectation, the runway popped with colors that really came alive against the starck NYC dreary grey backdrop.  His fabrics for this collection ranged from velvets, silks, jacquards, nylon and lace.  And much of it shimmered and shined which caught the eye of both me and my little one. There was SO much sheen on everything from coats to maxis to minis! Going with the maximalist trend that I saw on a lot of runways this season, and staying true to his signature style, there was a focus on embellishment, pattern and fabric mixing and patchwork detailing.

We had a blast watching from the sidelines and were so thankful to make more mommy and me memories on the catwalk!
