“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening,” by Coco Chanel.
Though her style is very different from Coco’s, I would say that “fashion art” is the way how Stacy Igel opens her fashion shows every time. She creates the show filled with inspiration and it naturally extends to the runway. A live short performance at the beginning of this type of show is a very essential key to creating a “Rock & Roll” brand image.
Natasha Bedingfield was the first who appeared on the runway performing live during the Boy Meets Girl show in front of a packed house on 15th of February. Stacy Igel is the Founder/Creative Director and Chief Brand Ambassador of the Boy Meets Girl Brand. Projects currently in development include hosting a weekly online style show and a reality series for a major television network. She’s personally shopped and styled for celebrity clientele around the world, and continues to mentor young designers and advocate for causes that speak to her values.
Boy Meets Girl is a casually classic contemporary brand for people with a carefree spirit. The audience got a chance to see the new clothing and Stacy’s latest trends for Fall/Winter 2011. The collection contained light tops, dresses, sweaters, short-sleeve hooded T-shirt, sweatshirts & sweatpants, jumpers and skirts. Short shorts and leggings were paired with loose tanks, sweatshirts and loose tees. The outfits were not colorful and combined gray, black, brown, beige and forest green palettes. While there were some pieces that my Women’s Mafia colleagues and I liked from the show, and the Veronica’s rocked them in the front row, the looks were a bit too casual for New York streets and will probably work better in Los Angeles.
