For this season’s Fashion Week, team tristinstyling had the amazing opportunity to see the Rebecca Minkoff Runway to Retail Fashion Show. This event was held at The Grove in Los Angeles on Saturday February 4th and we are still drooling over the incredible pieces of RM’s Spring 2017 collection that Rebecca herself refers to as ‘see-buy-wear’.
It was the perfect afternoon for a runway show. What we love most about this concept is that it’s a runway show with the consumer in mind. This is the third time Rebecca Minkoff has presented her collection this way and we can only hope she continues to do so. Minkoff said before the show that the collection was inspired by her California roots — she’s a San Diego native. “It’s just easy, effortless kind of beauty. A lot of color, a lot of different floral prints. A lot of ruffles,” she said.
The collection was brought to life by models, actresses and digital influencers, including Aimee Song and Chriselle Lim and it was made to spark immediate shopping. The majority of the pieces were available for purchase that day (in-store and online) which is an added bonus. Also, you don’t have to break the bank to put your hands on her incredible designs. All pieces from the collection come at an accessible price point.
She opened the show with Aimee Song in a feminine and floaty printed viscose dresses, shoulder-baring and bohemian-inspired edgy pieces. She also offered her version of the white cotton and lace frocks, cute denim overalls and wide-leg jeans; graphic sweatshirts and Ts, and some leather and suede jackets for layering. Everything very true to her style and essence; a collection made for the edgy-rocker-chic girl that also wants to look feminine.
For all the #RMchi fashionistas, the store on Oak street held a preview shopping party in-store hosted by Bitches Who Brunch. The event was super cute with Chandon sippers, an Essie manicure station, photo booth, and discount for all who shopped during the event.
For the day of the show, Christine, founder of tristinstyling, was wearing a chambray long sleeved romper, studded leather booties and accessorized it with a tan camera bag & a tassel chain. All of these pieces Rebecca Minkoff of course!

We seriously had a blast. Blogger babe Dana from 23 Danilla Skies (Or @23danilla on IG) was there to live this amazing experience with us. Besides getting to see first hand Rebecca Minkoff’s new Spring collection, we got to spend the day at The Grove enjoying all the activities they had planned for us, as well for the general public. The activities included yoga classes, photo booths, mani stations with Essie, wine tasting, Lauren Conrad’s ‘The Little Market’ pop up shop, etc. It was a whole day perfectly planned by the Rebecca Minkoff team.
The show closed with a beautiful a cappella group that sang down the runway right in front of the models and it was the perfect way to say goodbye to the show and welcome the new collection.
