Interview with Sheila Frank

I caught up with designer Sheila Frank recently to hear all about her new spring 2010 collection and her recent fashion show. You might remember Sheila from a past interview we did with her.

Snapshot Fashion: You recently debuted your spring 2010 collection in a show in NYC alongside Kenley Collins, Marissa Erskine, and Elizabeth Rynish. Tell us about this experience.
Sheila Frank: It was nice to come together for a cause. Elizabeth Rynish started this organization called Seam Collective. They are all about female emerging designers. It was nice to have that girl power. Haha. But the main cause was for Gilda's Club, proceeds went to their organization. Also each designer donated a garment for the silent auction. All in all great experience to be around positive energy.

Snapshot Fashion: When you started to design your spring 2010 collection what vision did you have in mind?
Sheila Frank: I was looking at my mother's porcelain doll collection. I then started to think of the Elizabethan Era and my mind started to wander around the idea of Elizabethan nightgowns. I wanted to design ready to wear, so I thought of how I could interpret nightgowns into ready to wear.

Snapshot Fashion: You used a lot of navy and gray in your designs this time around...any reasoning for your color choices?
Sheila Frank: Yes! When I began designing, I was sitting at my desk and looked out the window. The sky was a blue gray, like it was about to storm. I just felt the color palette. It just felt right.
Snapshot Fashion: Describe your spring 2010 collection in three words.
Sheila Frank: Feminine, edgy, easy.

3 Looks

Today we've put together three very similar evening looks...but they all have very different price tags. 

Which look do you like best?
Would you wear a specific look because of the price?
Do you find that you mix high and low priced pieces when you shop?

Brooklyn Industries---November Collection

As you all know one of my favorite stores is Brooklyn Industries. You can imagine how excited I was when I got an email from them with a preview of their November Collection. Not only are the clothes adorable, but the photos are great too. The photos were actually shot in Grand Central in NYC...which is where they will be opening their 12th store on November 15th.

Here is a quick look at their November Collection for women.

Their style is always so casual, yet totally pulled together. Which looks are you planning on purchasing? I really love the top three images...and the handbag in the last shot.

Fashion Icon of the Week

It is Thursday, so that means that we are bringing an end to our Fashion Icon of the Week. We had a lot of fun with Miranda Kerr as our icon this week. From all the positive comments and email from our readers it seems as though you all really loved having her be represented this week as well.

Here are a few more of our favorite photos of Miranda showing off her personal style that we all love.

Lastly, we thought it would be a lot of fun to show some photos of Miranda at work on the runway and in front of the camera.

One thing I just love about cooler weather is wearing hats. I came across this Staring at Stars Felt Hat at Urban Outfitters today and had to stop in my tracks. I just adore the floppy brim! This hat comes in a variety of colors: putty (shown here), black, grey, and burgundy. Right now it is even on sale for only $19.99 (regularly priced at $34).


Pick of the Day

I absolutely adore this Polarizing Skirt by BB Dakota available at ModCloth. Tiered skirts are a huge trend this season. What I love about this skirt (besides the beautiful violet color) is that it isn't full of big, bulky, ruffled tiers. The tiers actually sit rather flat...making this skirt much more figure friendly. Their wave design takes it to the next level.

What do you think of this piece? Are you a fan of tiered skirts?


Fashion Icon of the Week

The votes have been counted, and the winner of this week's Fashion Icon of the Week is: Miranda Kerr.
Thanks to everyone that voted in the poll. She will be featured on Snapshot Fashion all week.


Full name: Miranda May Kerr
Born on: April 20, 1983
Heritage: Serbian, Persian, Filipino, and Australian
Animal lover: She has a Yorkshire Terrier named Frankie.

I just came across the most adorable shoes that I must have! These Samuela Heels from French Connection are just too adorable for words! I think they'd look amazing with a mini skirt, or slim cigarette leg trousers. I really love the tie at the ankle...sets this shoe apart from the rest.

Trend Block

Currently sequins are taking over the red carpet, runway, and even the local stores at a mall near you. What many seem to be the most puzzled with is just how to wear them. Would you believe me if I told you that you really could wear sequins anywhere? Well...believe it. I'm going to tell you how.

Immediately when I think of sequins I think of formal gowns or cocktail dresses. Wearing sequins to formal events will really guarantee that the attention that evening will be on you. So don't wear sequins if you don't like standing out in a crowd. A glittery and sparkly outfit is anything but boring. Check out Taylor Swift's look on the left. Could you imagine that dress without sequins on it? No way! The glitz makes the dress!
Are sequins only for formal events? Hardly. You can wear them to work...or even with jeans. Take for instance this jacket that Blake Lively (right) is wearing that is encrusted in sequins. She wears it over a simple pair of jeans and a plain tank top...making her outfit go from casual to Fashion Week appropriate.

Snapshot Fashion has put together a variety of looks (some high end, and some that are very affordable) for our readers in the collage below to give you an idea of the amazing sequined pieces that are out there.

Do you have a favorite item that we have shown? Do you have any sequined items in your closet that you love? If so, tell us about them.

Fashion Inspiration---Rachel Zoe

So I have a guilty little secret...I'm obsessed with The Rachel Zoe Project on Bravo. Does anyone else watch this show? I love catching up with repeats on the weekends. From Rachel's catch phrases, to Taylor's attitude, to Brad's short shorts...I just love every second of it!
I thought it would be fun to put together a fashion inspiration of items that are similar to those that Rachel herself would wear.

What do you think of Rachel's style? Does she often where a key piece that you just love?
