DetailsxCFDA Men’s Project - The Weekender

Details Magazine and the CFDA have come together for second year in a row to create a set of 20 unique duffle bags with menswear designers like Richard Chai, Billy Reid, Marc Jacobs, and many more. 

I am thankful to be able to give you an exclusive sneak peek at five of my favorite bags: 1. Todd Snyder, 2. Robert Geller, 3. Tommy Hilfiger, 4.  Duckie Brown, and 5. Billy Reid - it was definitely hard to choose. I’m impressed by how each designer recreated the classic Army/Navy bag. 

The bags will go on sale on Ebay on June 10 and all proceeds will go to the CFDA Foundation which supports emerging designers.

For more information, check the @Details, @CFDA, and @eBayFashion Twitter accounts and follow the #DetailsxCFDA hashtag.

Happy bidding!

I am so excited to present 10 exclusive street style images for MODELLOUNGE NYFW SS13 at www.thenycstreets.tumblr.com. I have been hanging outside the Modellounge on Union Square the past two days to shoot girls and their style going in and out of the events they have had with top model Coco Rocha, Model Alliance’s Sara Ziff, runway coach Mac Folksa, and casting director Andrew Weir.

Modellounge is an amazing invite-only resource for girls at the Top Ten Modeling agencies in New York City. I was fortunate to step in for a moment and see the amazing resources the girls have — snacks, a beautiful lounge, a place to practice their catwalk, free wifi, magazines, etc.

Modellounge has been around for three years and been growing quickly! I had been curious about it for a while and been shooting outside their previous events. The event I attended was beyond packed and I got to see girls coming out with their SS13 Model Lounge tote filled with essential items for fashion week.

Here’s what they are wearing:

Karlina Caune: Marc Jacobs top, Prada bag, Balenciaga shoes and pants, Stella McCartney sunglasses (this girl is everywhere — Akris, Jil Sander Eyewear, Hobbs, Honor FW 12 … Need I say more?)

Isabella Melo: Topshop top, Zara skirt, Vanessa Bruno bag. So chic! I love her look.

Julia Suszfalak: River Island jacket, Forever 21 top, Uniqlo pants, Rag & Bone shoes, Phillip Lim bag (Dziękuję)

Vanessa Hegelmaier: Rag & Bone top and pants, Aldo sandals, Levi’s jacket — second time I’ve shot her in the area - dope hat! Cool girl.

Katya Tolstova: ASOS shirt, Burberry bag, Balenciaga shoes - Her website is coming soon!

Liu Xu: All Saints jacket, Mango shirt or jeans, Doc Martens shoes - check out this shot I took of her FW12!

Cece Yost: what an amazing dress by Griffon!

Kaleigh Cohen: Urban outfitters top and shorts, wedge sneakers by Steve Madden - check out that tote!

Paulina Klos: River Island top, Uniqlo pants, H&M bag
Sam Taylor: Brahmin bag!
Thanks girls!
