After wowing fashion’s finest on the runway at NYFW, Mark and Estele displayed their fabulous fall/winter collection at Coterie, and we were lucky enough to get an extra exclusive look at what to expect from them next season. “The Old World Collection” inspired by the Victorian era, but cut with a modern edge and the designers’ signature flare is full of Italian wool, sheers, and velvets. Their patterns mix preppy with punk-rock in plaid pants and houndstooth short sets. With a unique and period aesthetic, the duo still remains very wearable and on trend in the ready to wear line.
Many of us here in the city have one thing on our minds -- fun in the sun. The sand, the beach, the waves and did we mention....the sun?! Jokes aside, we wanted to share our fashion and beauty vacation faves. So sit back and allow us to pack for you.
A signature sandal is a vacation must. A pair that goes well with various outfits is also important! We adore this signature pair by Jack Rogers!
If you're grabbing a flight on your way to someplace warm, you need the perfect watch to compliment your look and keep you on schedule. This crisp white bebe watch is the perfect travel accessory.
Wearing your hair up when you're away is an easy way to stay chic and cool off. A topknot accessorized by a trendy bow, such as these by Gina Made It makes looking fab a breeze.
A dress, a sarong...or both!? Hipknoties is a cool garment you can literally custom style in over 30 different ways! This is a vacation must-pack.

Zendaya Coleman is proving to be the future of music and fashion, with a beauty and talent so mesmerizing, she's often compared to the likes of Beyonce and Rihanna. The quadruple-threat, singer, dancer, actress, and model was the toast of New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014, keeping the cameras flashing and all eyes on what the former disney starlet would wear next. Here on Glam Damnit, we've got some of Zendaya's best looks of the year so far.
With a beauty like Zendaya, she could wear anything, but this style star goes above and beyond, making fun and inspiring decisions with print, patterns, and accessories, as well as developing a sophisticated taste for fashion, going from classy casual and sexy elegant to youthful urban, and avant-garde chic.
Many a fashion aficionado took note of the Mercedes-Benz F/W 2014 collections shown during February 6-13th at Lincoln Center. Joonbug was there to soak in all of the fashion, excitement, celebrity spotting and socializing during the week!

Having experienced Fashion Week from various rows and locations, the AMEX Skybox allows you to take the show in while sitting in style. Amenities include champagne, cocktails, food, and celebrity guests. The BCBG Collection featuring sleek lines, ponchos, color-blocking, high boots and 70's flair, was both wearable and flirty. Guest speakers such as Joe Zee (Elle Magazine), Steven Kolb (CFDA), and Tadashi Shoji are known to interact with the AMEX Skybox guests for exclusive Q&A's.

Hosted this past Tuesday at the Museum of Modern Art, next to their store’s new address at 701 5th Avenue (between 54th and 55th Streets), TAG Heuer celebrated this monumental achievement in true style. Stylish canapés, including miniature soups, beef Carpaccio, and macaroons were served by gorgeous hostesses, while dapper men passed out champagne and sugar concoctions. A collection of both male and female contortionists wrapped themselves gracefully around metal sculptures, reminiscent of the geometric pieces of a clock.
