Fashion’s Night Out

This year I feel so fortunate to be on the panel of judges for their annual Stylist of the Season.

The stylist team includes Bay Area image consultants Micki Turner, Marcy Carmack and Hasti Kashfia.

I love nothing more than watching brilliant people do their thing. Whether it’s sports or art, it’s always inspiring.

That’s why I’m really excited to watch the Neiman’s pick of talent runway show.

Each stylist will create six looks on six models within the six trends of lace, fur trim, ponchos, military influence, the pantsuit, and the color green.

“I find it hard to choose one trend this season,” stated Hasti. “For example, one combination I love is the masculine feel from the military influence with the soft feel of lace detailing,” said Hasti, who has dressed socialites ands celebrities, styled high fashion photo shoots, and created red-carpet looks.

“There is something very chic, sexy and authoritative in the looks that we are seeing for fall. I’m excited to see these looks incorporated into the everyday wardrobe,” she said.

Micki works in Union Square and loves to scour the city and Peninsula boutiques. She stated, “I love this season’s chunky shoes and boots, with skirts and patterned legs are a great look. It is flattering on lots of bodies and good for all ages. Skirts can be worn long, short, full or pencil. I like the shorter tops and sweaters. We all have our skinny jeans and leggings with long tops, so I enjoy the change of silhouette to a shorter top and fuller bottom.”

Marcy, who dresses the First Lady of San Francisco, loves fall’s new trend of capes. She splits her time between San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York.

Fashion’s Night Out is Friday, September 10 at 6 p.m. at Neiman Marcus in Stanford Center, Palo Alto.

Hope to see you there!
