Beckley Boutique's head designer Kelsei Hayes, fresh off her trip to New York Fashion Week, dishes on some of her favorite finds from the runways. Hayes, who is the head designer of Beckley by Melissa, says between appointments in showrooms she stopped by three shows from some of the top performers in the Beckley empire.

From Phillip Lim, who she says "can do no wrong": "At first glance you can tell that this season Lim was inspired by geology; specifically geodes? From the necklines and embroidery to the face of the luxe fabrics — the collection screamed minerals. Also, not to be overlooked, those shoes."

From 10 Crosby from Derek Lam: "The collection was inspired by black and white photographs of Zanzibar's sandy beaches? Although the collection used such earthy textures, it still fits with the usual aesthetic of polished and sporty."

From Opening Ceremony: "The duo just gets sportswear like nobody else. They referenced growing up in Southern California entertained by street races in abandoned lots. That and the interpretation of traditional Korean garments created S14."
