OUTFIT

SHADES OF COOL

Stepping into fall with my F/W 2014 Collection in this Metallic Bell Sleeve Aline Dress for a dinner date in Bernal Heights. I’m in a constant state of fear that I’m over dressed for everything I do (especially when going out) – and in SF, I usually am. To dress as if I didn’t ‘try to hard’ is actually quite difficult seeing as I am a designer – I usually spend hours pressing and steaming my clothing before going anywhere. So I finally discovered the secret to ‘dressing down’ an otherwise very dressy ensemble. Add a denim jacket! Just wear it over everything! I should have gotten this memo before, but was reluctant until discovering the cool color combo of my vintage denim and Fall 14 line was a match made in heaven.

This season my mod vision was manifested and carefully crafted in soft luxurious wool in our San Francisco design studio. In addition to this, I worked with jersey ponte, metallic jacquard and used blue velvet to accent the cocktail dresses throughout the collection.

ALYSSA NICOLE FALL 2014 COLLECTION PREVIEW


No Comments
Recently I hosted a private collection preview for my Fall 2014 Collection in San Francisco. I was set on a rooftop presentation in the heart of San Francisco’s Union Square district – but last season it rained on our event so I was determined to host my rooftop presentation for Fall collection this season. I was so happy to see my collection come to life during our presentation and couldn’t have asked for a better team working by my side coordinating this event. All my lovely guests who attended truly remind me why I love to do what I do & having the ability to bring NYFW to SF for my collection presentation is absolutely amazing.
