Helen Yarmak reveals opulence and grandeur through her designs. Recognized internationally, she is lavish with her accessories, furs and jewellery. Helen Yarmak furs appeared in various colours, lengths and styles; each can appropriately be paired with an evening gown for a fashionable night on the town, or even to complement a classic, casual look. The menswear styles are fashion-forward and as majestic.
Her presentation was at an intimate gathering at the prominent Crown Building overlooking Central Park and Fifth Avenue. A live jazz band welcomed guests on the terrace as ballerinas adorned by Helen Yarmak pieces performed. Following the show, the event transformed into a presentation where invitees were able to admire and appreciate each individual look.
Alber Elbaz × LeSportsac
The prominent, iconic designer Alber Elbaz, the former creative director of the renowned French fashion house, Lanvin, collaborated with LeSportsac for fall, launching a capsule collection of fun and chic cosmetic cases, totes, backpacks and other styles, all with elaborate designs. The affordable and stylish collection, which includes an exclusively designed logo, includes entries with such names as Color Me Zebra, Dance with Me, Love Me Kiss Me, Big Kiss and Color Me Leopard.
The launch took place on the eve of New York Fashion Week at Spring Studios, with a large celebratory cake sculpture in the middle of the venue luring in a crowd of fashion insiders. The cake was adorned with Alber Elbaz × LeSportsac pieces on the top tiers, and sweet edible guilty pleasures on the bottom. Large, colourful balloons, glimmering party lights, decadent champagne and motifs of sugary candied lips set the party scene.

J. P. Yim
Supima’s annual design competition is sure to wow a crowd. Seven designers flaunted their creativity on the runway: Paula Amaral of Academy of Art University, Bryn Lourié of Rhode Island School of Design, Alanna Lizun of Kent State University, Geneviève Lake of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Lili Shi as well as Jessica Rubinstein of the Savannah College of Art and Design, and Jessica Chang of Parsons School of Design. Details, creativity and style played an important role as they presented five looks each, using solely the soft and long-lasting texture of Supima cotton. Shi was announced as the victor.
