For the first collection since Oscar de la Renta's passing in October, Peter Copping made his debut for the brand in true Oscar fashion. Emotions were high as the beloved designer was remembered through Copping's collection. In a dedication of sorts, coppings collection was clearly meant to make Oscar's presence felt and was ever apparent in his pretty, feminine prints and sumptuous ballgowns.

Carolina Herrera brought more of her print mastery to the runway this season, with eye-catching dress-and-jacket combos that are sure to be seen all over the red carpet this season.

Style with Heart
At Style by Zoey, I am all about "style with heart" and was thrilled to be invited to Set NYC's fashion benefit to end child sex trafficking. Additionally, the annual "ladies in red" NYFW "Go Red For Women" Fashion show at Lincoln Center presented by Macy's (showcasing the 2015 American Heart Association collection) was the very definition of style with heart. Here's to hoping fashion benefits will be an even bigger fixture on the NYFW scene in years to come.
