Every Friday we’re on the hunt for your #myRM pics. This week we’ve been caught up in that February All Pink Everything mood, probably something to do with next week, hmmm…
And then along came Leanne Barlowk aka @leannebarlow with the perfect VDay vibes. She’s got that new Mini M.A.C. Crossbody from the Spring ’16 Collection (shade: “guava.” Yummy.), plus a way of styling it that’s pure romance.

So there’s a lot of marketing speak going around about #SeeBuyWear show this fashion week (catch-up info on that here). Something else you might hear it called is a “consumer-facing show.” To which you’re probably like ENGLISH PLEASE. So we’re gonna break that down rn.
So initially, you’re probably thinking, “Okay, it’s a show for consumers. As opposed to what? Isn’t all fashion made for the people who buy it?”
Well, not historically. Fashion’s been pretty insider-y for the last like, hundred years. Used to be that only editors and buyers went to fashion shows to see what they wanted to promote or carry in stores the coming season. It really wasn’t a big public thing at all. That mostly changed with (you guessed it), the
Uri Minkoff is a busy guy these days—not only is he the CEO here at Rebecca Minkoff; he’s the Creative Director of his own line.

It’s Friday again! And we’re scouring Instagram for our favorite fan photos.

With the emergence of technology and social media, fashion week is simply behind schedule. The moment a piece of mine goes down the runway, a photo or video of it appears on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Periscope—not to mention uploaded to websites like Vogue.com.
