Photographer Nick Waplington spent years documenting models during fittings at Isaac Mizrahi’s Soho fashion studio, and at night would shoot the drag queens and DJs of New York’s underground club scene. You can see more of his photos from this era in a new book, The Isaac Mizrahi Pictures: New York City 1989-1993.

Beaufille FW16

20160216_MADE_FASHION_WEEK_AW16_BEAUFILLE_MCLENNAN_108-533x80020160216_MADE_FASHION_WEEK_AW16_BEAUFILLE_MCLENNAN_158-533x800 beau1 beau2 beau3 beau4Everything about Beaufille‘s FW16 collection is enticing. From the exaggerated bell shapes to the deliberate nonchalance of the off-the-shoulder dresses, every detail is calculated and precise. If we let their more recent collections speak for themselves, I must say relocating the brand from Toronto to New York has been an overwhelmingly positive change. Their styling has grown in confidence, their designs stronger and bolder than ever before. It doesn’t exactly reinvent the wheel, but damn, do they make that wheel look pretty. Also ummm hi I want every piece of jewellery from this collection.

More after the jump.

Sheer Luck

2 3 1 5I love the mix of tough and supreme girliness in this editorial from Satellite Journal, featuring clothes by Japanese designer Akikoaoki. Paper-thin sheer lace combined with heavy brocade and black combat boots. It’s feminine and strong and completely me. Stay tuned for more about Akikoaoki in the coming days.
