Brooklyn Fashion Week(End) S/S 2014 Collection "Be Inspired"

Last October, I went to Brooklyn's Fashion Week(End) to see Spring/Summer 2014 Collections.  The atmosphere was quite different from Lincoln Center, but it did showcase some great designers.  One designer I particularly loved was Trash by Angela Breit.  She didn't exhibit your typical everyday outfit, but there was something exciting about her designs.  Designers like Cynthia Rowley and Clover Canyon are constantly coming out with fun prints and different materials like neoprene.  Trash is right up there with their bold prints using images like superheroes, gorillas, bananas and cigarettes.  The collection is a bit more edgy; however, you aren't likely to see anyone out in the same garment because she only creates 4-5 pieces of each garment, the prices are lower than luxury designer prices and it's at the forefront of fashion!

I'm not the best run-way photographer.  See pictures of part of the collection below from the site!

It's finally warming up in New York.  It actually got to the 60's today, so I would say that warrants wearing shorts.  Sure it may get a little breezy, but to heck with it!  Right now I enjoy mixing prints.  My top has a green garden look on the collar and wrists, while my shorts are a black and white print.  The mix of colors is fun and appropriate together, but I also think almost everything matches!
