PGH Fashion Week x Macy’s

Yesterday evening, after a long day of classes, I fluffed my hair, put on my lipstick and walked over to Macy’s downtown. Pittsburgh Fashion Week, developed by Miyoshi Anderson, collaborated with the department store for a fashion show focused on the fall fashions for “trendy 9-5 looks.”

After making a brief stop at the sunglasses section to try on some fabulous Dolce and Gabbana, Versace and Prada shades (see below) I escalated up to the 4th floor.

Past a sea of women’s apparel was a short runway with the cutest Pittsburgh backdrop.

The fashion show featured commentary from Stephanie of Glam and Graffiti and the Tribune Review’s JoAnne Harrop who navigated the show detailing each look’s greatest characteristics. There were various categories, including “Date Night” and “At The Office”  The clothes on the runway were sponsored by Macy’s and also included a preview of designs from Art Institute of Pittsburgh students, who have a show this Saturday.

The trends?

White denim, military-inspired pants and jackets, varsity jackets, ankle boots and bold prints. Designers such as Michael Kors, Calvin Klein and Levi’s were featured on the runway. The looks offered a wearable, yet stylish approach to everyday wear.

My favorite pieces? 

The snake-print jumpsuit + black fur shawl, the black split open booties, the black and gold stilletos, the cargo pants and the black-gray blazer (every guy needs one of these!). Also, that Coco Chanel inspired outfit by the AI student made – that asymmetrical skirt needs to be in my life, like, now.
