Did you see Layana Aguilar on Project Runway? Now she is at Fashion Week

Happy Hump Day Cuties! After having Monday off my days are all mixed up.  Although my allergies are on a thousand and I’m currently a mouth breather the show must go own. I shared the Jimmy Burner show and he was dope. Now I want to show you the Layana Aguilar Show, if you are a fan of Project Runway then you’ve heard of her. Season 11 anyone?

Each show has a different vibe and that is the fun thing for me. I never know if it is a classic show or a youthful show or we are just having a stone cold good time and you are going to look at these clothes. The show was at The Stuart Hotel and there was a lot going on; the Westminster Dog show was in town and dogs were all over the place.

My look

I wanted to be comfy but cute, at New York Fashion Week you see people in a variety of attire.  I went for a middle of the road, plus it was freezing cold and hella windy outside.  The Look:  Top: Target $23, Pants: Old Navy $7 & Shoes: Black Wedge Lace Up by Kork-Ease from Nordstrom

Video recap of the show.

I love to see what people wear, and well…

The theme of the show was “Free Creatures” Layana Aguilar was inspired by reading bedtime stories to her son. She was fascinated by the freedom and serenity of insects and the extreme length that they go through every day. They are fragile on the inside but strong on the outside, these creatures are essentially wearing armor, not unlike the armor that women put on every day to conquer the world.

Butterflies and Boobs

The essence of butterflies, Picasso bugs and other insects are portrayed through fabric manipulation and a color palette of dark and light hues interspersed with a touch of hologram, pumpkin, rose gold, copper, gold and silver.

Fashion soothes my soul

I enjoyed the show, the energy was good. Layana fused in technology with some of the girls walking the runway with cameras.  She even came out with a camera herself, that is a great way to give the folks at home a chance to see things from a different perspective. They get to be there without actually being there.

  2. Jeanette

    There is some interesting fashion there and not only on the runway! Those glasses (sunglasses??) look like they are form Back to the Future! Looks like a fun show to go to! I am glad you enjoyed it!

    I love, love, love project runway! My mum and sister are so hooked!
    I love how the stars on the show are starting to appear on the run way as well!
    I watched the clip and I was just so star struck the designs and are original.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Miranda, it is inspiring. You see these designers on TV and week after week they are working towards their dreams.
      Then the show ends and they end up on the runway.
      Super exciting.

  7. Tatanisha Worthey

    A very, shall we say, open fashion show. Whew, I wouldn’t ever wear any of those but fashion shows are definitely interesting!

  8. Kimberly

    Can we talk about your look for a minute? Love! I love pink and black together – and the sleeves on your top make me *swoon* You looked gorgeous!
    Now the Back To The Future dudes. Could they see? What? Is happening there?
    I love your caption – Dragon Flies and boobs *dead*. I actually don’t mind that outfit if the middle section totally covered her boobs.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Thanks so much Kimberly, I love fashion.

      I don’t know if they can see, I imagine that maybe it was like wearing sunglasses. They didn’t have any issues walking around. lol

      Hahahahaha I like my fashion to have a little edge.

  9. Annemarie LeBlanc

    The outfits are interesting but even more interesting were the people in the audience! I am happy you enjoyed the show. It must have been an awesome experience.

  10. Pam Wattenbarger

    These are some fun looks. I like the yellow furry coat and how the looks are based on “free creatures.”


    She is talented but I couldn’t wear those clothes!! I love watching her success though.

  12. Toiia L. Rukuni

    High fashion really isn’t my thing, but I always enjoy shows like this that showcase art and creativity. Sounds like you had a really neat experience~!

  20. Krystal

    I think fashion week is always fun to see what designers are coming out with. It is always fun to see how the designs transfer over into everyday realistic wear.

  21. Dawn McAlexander

    I have always wanted to attend a fashion event like this, but there is nothing like that anywhere near me. Glad you got to experience this first hand.

  22. Jonna

    There is always something interesting to see even in the people attending fashion shows. Street style is in full effect.

  23. Kirstin Fuller

    Interesting looks, can’t say I’d ever put the girls on display with butterflies but it worked for her show! I’ve always wanted to attend NYFW. How does one get on the invite list? lol

    • MimiCuteLips

      Yeah, it only works on a particular body frame. You can’t have much party going on at the top. lol How to get on the list is quite an anomaly, honestly I’m still trying to figure it out myself.

  24. Emma Spellman

    It looked like a fun show. Everyone looked really great. I love your pants they look really soft.

  25. Joanae

    You needed to be on that runway too! All of the models looked amazing…and I’m always here for one’s pursuing dreams. ❤
