It was an intimate affair for the Mercedes-Benz of Buffalo Fashion Week Boutique Show taking place on Tuesday evening at the Mansion on Delaware.
A fitting location, the small runway show featured four local boutiques in an exclusive setting that is much more up close and personal that most of the other Fashion Week events. Modern Nostalgia, Blue Collar, Ms. Eye Candy and Blush all got the chance to show off their featured looks for fall while a slew of vendors and participating establishments offered their goods to purchase downstairs.
We had a great view of the designs coming down the wrap-around runway and picked out our top styles from each collection.
For a full recap and photos from the night (including many additional looks) check out the official Facebook page for Fashion Week for photos, links and other behind the scenes information for the shows.
Modern Nostalgia : 1378 Hertel Ave., Buffalo
Showcasing an array of easy-to-wear looks, Modern Nostalgia featured many styles that I could see working extremely well in the workplace environment. Business casual that could easily be adjusted into after work entertaining was my take from the show.
Blue Collar : 1382 Hertel Ave., Buffalo
The men’s store equivalent to Modern Nostalgia, Blue Collar’s looks reminded me of a well-dressed young professional guy and what he would wear to the office as well as on the weekend. Easy ensembles with layering were the perfect way to preview for fall.
Ms. Eye Candy : 292 W. Utica St., Buffalo
Textures, shimmer and lots of gold were the theme for Ms. Eye Candy’s show, channeling a girl’s night out on the town. Fierce looks with metallic tops and bold prints were showcased by a group of severely confident models who garnered “work it!” calls from the crowd.
Blush : 1005 Elmwood Ave., Buffalo
This new boutique to Buffalo, Blush’s collection included many must-see looks for any WNY fashionista. Sophisticated chic for the everyday Elmwood girl, the stellar clothes were also paired up with show-stealing jewelry and accessories from local designer Vania and David.
