NYFW. Sachin+Babi

This fashion season has been super busy, however, I only managed to attend the show of a long-known to me label, Sachin+Babi! I've always been a big fan of the brand since their humble beginning, as they are true masters of fabric manipulation. My experience encompassed meeting and interviewing the designers, full backstage scenery and of course, the show! 
Now, here it is from the beginning! I was super thrilled to receive the purple croc-embossed invite from them and I'm even beyond excited to share it with you today.

  The location was away from the craziness of Lincoln Center, in a quiet art/gallery space with tall ceilings and exposed brick walls. It was really special to catch the adrenaline rush backstage, and as soon as I walked in the door I couldn't resist to examine the collection, and snap a few shots.  
The color story represented moody,dramatic shades of black, brown, moss green with touches of red, purple and cream. 

As you see, the collection features a wide array of textures (from basket weave and geometric fabric manipulation, high-glossy and croc-embossed leather, pleats to luxurious furs). 

Next, I stepped over to the Beauty Aisle where models were beautified and glamorized!
Natural looks with minimal makeup were ambitiously achieved by the Bobbi Brown artists and loose, just-out-the-bedroom hairdos portrayed the rocker-chic appeal very well.

As the models were getting dressed I spotted a few famous fashion bloggers arrive at the scene. Among them were BrianBoy FashionToast and HonestlyWTF . I was so happy to meet these wonderful girls, Erica and Lauren, as their blog is just one big inspiration for me!! And you should check it out too!

I was beyond amazed to approach the husband-n-wife team Sachin+Babi and chat with them about the collection. Apparently, the "rock-n-roll" theme was present as their inspiration and this season they wanted to "keep it simplified", so the silhouettes were toned down just a notch :)

 Everything was happening with a speed of light...The next thing I saw the models were all ready to walk the show, so right before jumping to my seat I snapped a few shots.

And, finally the show! Unfortunately, the pictures I took were not so great due to the bright light, but here is the best I could pick.

Finally, I hope you enjoyed my recap as I much as I enjoyed capturing every moment of it and lastly, I present my favorite looks of the collection. Great job, Sachin+Babi!
