House of Byfield-Art Hearts Fashion #NYFW Fall/Winter '16
Designer Carmicheal Byfield of House of Byfield,  who is very well-known for his colorful designsdebuted the "Safari" collection for New York Fashion Week with Art Hearts Fashion on February 17 at the Angel Orensanz Foundation.   The theme of the collection was inspired by a 2012 trip to West Africa (Gabon).   Safari means “to travel” so the trend has to be comfortable, practical, and be able to walk right off the runway into the streets, all of which Carmichael accomplished. The fabrics used for each piece that walked the runway made a BOLD statement by incorporating a BOLD print of beautiful deep red hues, toasty orange, brown, black and white with various zipper detailing in all the tailored suit jackets worn.  It was fascinating to see Carmichael's trademark, firsthand, of using one core fabric print, to create multiple styles for the collection.  How impressive is that?

His whole collection easily adapts from day-to-night.  It embodies today's man and woman with the marriage of sophistication and sexiness, which allows for one to step out into the world, looking and feeling confident wearing, what A Mom In Haute Pursuit would call, the hottest trend of the season, "Safari Chic! "

House of Byfield collaborated with some amazing designers of accessories to showcase the new line.  They are as follows: Carat23 (Handbags) / Molinis (Accessory for Shoes) / Monticristi (Hats) & Suzan Pitt (Hand-Painted Coats).  All exceptionally beautiful and unique, but the favorite of the night for A Mom In Haute Pursuit was the Molinis.   Be on the look out for my FEATURE on the MUST-HAVE Molinis.  You won't want to miss out on the exciting news!
