Last week, I stopped by the Zana Bayne F/W 2012 presentation here in New York to check out some really cool leather accessories. I wasn’t to familiar with the line but from the looks of it, it seemed as if Zana Bayne’s pieces have been featured in high gloss fashion magazines like Vogue Italia & Japan, i-D, Interview, and on famous celebs like Lady Gaga, Madonna, and Ciara. Intrigued enough from this information alone, I quickly popped in to meet with the designer herself to check out her lastest collection. Accompanied by my photographer friend Andrew Day, he captured some great shots of the event for Stylesource.
A series of shots that greeted us as we walked into the event.
This was one my favorite pictures of the series I snapped for Instagram. I loved the chrome accents set against the white leather. Very chic!
Another shot I snapped for Instagram, I feel in love with this harness wheel on the wall. It’s literally eight harnesses connected together to create this work of art. If you look closely, the back of each harness depicts the head of skulls resembling Dia De Lo Muertos Mexican decorations, inspiration behind much of the collection from what I’m told. I would totally rock one of these over a simple white V-neck tee-Just saying!

A shot of myself and another photographer friend. She was wearing one of Zana Bayne’s leather belts over this simple white dress. Style tip: A great way to dress up an ordinary dress is to belt it! In this instance, she went from a LWD (Little White Dress) to a peplum style with just a buckle. Huge trend right now!
A great mix of fashion goers in the industry and supporters of the designers. Many people were even wearing her designs. Always great to see!
We had to get a shot of these two. I loved her metal collar necklace and this gentleman was literally covered in tattoos head-to-toe. I would love to pick his brain and ask the meaning behind each one.
