Up-and coming designer, Tanya Taylor began her fashion line in 2011. A Parsons School of Design graduate and a former designer at Elizabeth and James, her attention to detail and a refined sense of style comes across in her first runway collection.
This being her first year showcasing at NYFW after three successful presentations, her attention to detail was at the forefront. Beginning from her elegantly done hand painted invitations, which served as a sneak preview of her Spring 2014 color palette.
Nautical stripes interspersed with bright streaks straight off out of a Crayola box, gave a fresh look to the usual black-white trend of this past season. While slim pencil skirts, striped biker jackets, mesh car coats, kept the whole collection fresh and youthful. One hot look: the white structured pieces that had bright hand painted floral motifs on it, adding a soft and dreamy feel to the collection.
To compliment the clothes, the make up was kept simple, muted, dewy with sleek pulled back hair, and Morgan Taylor pale pink glazed nails. As the models strut down the runway, their looks were adorned with shourouk jewelry by Mosphere and playful striped and patterned shoes in collaboration with Joe Andrew.
