Are you a fan of Project Runway? Season 6 winner Irina Shabayeva gave fans an edgier street-wise streetwear collection at her NY Fashion Week fashion how last week. She played with proportions on the classic hoodie, making them into a mini-dress with extra wide ribbed hems. There were asymmetrical hems in vegan leather. Strategic cut-outs edges in metal hardware and a fabulous angel wing print were a part of the designer’s line-up this season.
Machi Footwear supplied all of our edgy variations on boots to accompany Shabayeva’s collection. We had the snapped heeled Hanona bootie that created waved lines that echoed the shapes of her hems. Our Finn caged lattice boot was a popular choice this fall on and off the runway. Of course fringe is everywhere this season in our studded Peri boot.
We are used to Irina Shabayeva sending out dramatic gowns on the catwalk. Celebrity fans of hers include Carrie Underwood and Selena Gomez. We already know she has conquered the red carpet. Now the designer is showing us she conquers the sidewalks too.
