NYFW: Escada, BCBG Max Azria, Cynthia Rowley Show Reviews

Well, it's the most wonderful time of year, New York Fashion Week! Today kicked off the official first day of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City.  With shows all over the city, we have picked some of our favorites to cover for you.  Get ready for your daily dose of all things DARLING at New York Fashion Week!


We are kicking off our NYFW coverage with the Escada show.  Located at 1412 Broadway (10th floor) earlier this week on Monday, February 3, 2014, 36 looks walked down the runway.  In this fall 2014 RTW lineup, we saw everything from casual wear, to relaxed fitting suits to cocktail and evening gowns in a variety of jewel tones.  The collection was filled with double-breasted coats, and boxy fitting cropped pant suits, some swoon-worthy fur coats and ended with some red-carpet worthy gowns.  Here are some of our favorite looks from the show:

Next up is the BCBG Max Azria show.  This highly popular show at The Theatre at Lincoln Center this morning (Thursday, February 6, 2014) was a beauty of oversized neutrals and blacks with a few pops of a vibrant tealy-blue color.  Loose-fitting, asymmetrical hemmed dresses seemed to be a favorite along with oversized coats and fur for the design duo and we are loving it!  The color-blocked lines give shape and dimension to otherwise loose fitting garments.  The drapery of how these dresses fit is an artistic ability that is apparent how so much fabric can still make a model look sliming.  Here are some of our favorite looks (it was hard to narrow it down!):

Oh Cynthia Rowley, how we love you! You're show today on Thursday February 6, 2014 left us wanting more!  You had neutrals, and darks and bright colors and pastel colors and prints and we loved it all!  In an eclectic collection of dresses and separates, the Cynthia Rowley Fall 2014 RTW collection captivated us and left us wanting more.  We saw a ton of thigh-high boots, swing coats and dropped waist dresses leaving us nostalgic for Twiggy in the 1960s.  Once again we saw furs and more relaxed fit on the runway.  Here are some of our favorites:
