NYFW: David Tlale and BCBG Max Azria Recap S/S 14

This is a recap of Spring/Summer 14 collections presented at New York Fashion Week by BCBG Maz Azria and David Tlale.

Fashion week is taking New York by storm, becoming the bold center of every fashionista. This morning, really early, 9.30am, David Tlale delivered a beautiful and classy collection while enhancing every model presented at the Box in Lincoln Center. One of the OKA's Top list Fashion designers, Tlale became an every year must-see, a destination where glamour and trendy are meeting and blending in a perfect way. This new collection is a mix of ready-to-wear and couture from a classic piece to an extravagant evening gown. In one collection, Tlale will always make sure to have an outfit for every single moment of your day. Everyone will find an attire at her taste. However, Tlale had to respond to a misleading statement issued by the US-based PR agency, People’s Revolution, who recently pulled out of his New York show. We hope it won't diminish the work he accomplished on his Spring/Summer 14 Collection.


As to BCBG Max Azria, we have no words to explain how rich this new collection is. Azria hasn't needed to prove his worth since a long time ago. He will always stand out because of his creativity and the way he keeps reinventing itself. The collection is ideal for a Spring season. You'll find some beautiful prints and also plain colors with incredible shapes and juxtaposition. We love the oversized pieces and the balance between masculinity and femininity, which spotlights the woman's body in an interesting way.

For a Day 1, we definitely enjoyed these two new collections and recommend you scroll through the gallery above.
