New York Fashion Week Recap
New York Fashion Week Recap
I’m finally getting the chance to sit and look back on everything going on with Fashion Week! I attended a few shows but also kept an eye on presentations going on around me. After sharing a full itinerary of how to to NYFW on a budget, I figured it’s high time for a New York Fashion Week recap. From the shows I attended to my favorite NYFW designers, this was such an amazing time. I’m thrilled I got to experience it. So here’s full New York Fashion Week recap of my favorite shows!
Seeing a brand that is known for its jewelry present a clothing line proved to be a pleasant surprise. Gems and bling were incorporated into every single garment in some way. Whether larger stones or a subtle shimmer throughout, each garment truly sparkled. Add in truly tasteful yet creative cutouts, and I’m swooning all over this collection, hoping I can pick up a piece to rock for Wedding Season 2018.
Gorgeous use of draping pulled from the Indian roots of the designer complimented the earth tones of the entire line in a truly stunning way. Tasteful embellishments included flowers used to gather fabrics, smaller brooches, and more. The flowing fabrics of the line really called to mind a spring breeze through new buds and sun trickling through blooming trees.
This entire collection was eco-friendly! From the garments themselves to even the invitations, Runa Ray presented a collection that allows the wearer to be stylish and take care of the environment at the same time. The dyes were 100% natural and any prints were made out of natural materials. The look and feel of the collection called to mind every fantasy scene where your favorite character is wandering through the woods in a dream-like state, truly awed by everything surrounding them. A bold statement yet nymph-like vibe.
The fun and diversity of Siriano’s runway is known throughout the fashion community and beyond. From the models Siriano puts on his runways to the guests and, most importantly, the garments themselves, Siriano really knows how to throw the fashion world for a loop in the best way. While I was not at this show, the coverage across social media made it possible for me to stay in touch with one of my favorite NYFW presences.
Bold colors, daring silhouettes and lines, gowns that can only be described as “majestic,” and stellar fabrics adorned Siriano’s runway. Even a killer power suit or two rocked its way! I love that Siriano presents a mixture of pieces for everyday, at least the work day, and goes all the way through the red carpet while covering every single possible look in between. Fans of his pieces could really rock his work for just about anything.
Pay close enough attention to my NYFW looks and you’ll notice that there’s a little bit of Rebecca minkoff in all of them, whether it’s a belt, a bag, or even a scarf. I am absolutely dying over the colors Rebecca Minkoff used for this fall line. The different use of textures was stunning! My favorite item has to be the mustard colored velvet LOVE crossbody. I’m so happy to see velvet back for another season and Minkoff really brought it all home within the collection. Cheers!
Talk about glamour on the runway! The inspiration for this runway came from Coleridge’s “Kubla Khan” and it shows in everything from the poppies on the garments (the poem stemming from an opium-induced dream) to the bright colors. This entire collection really makes you want to go to the most epic party of the year and get into trouble while doing it. Seriously daring collection.
The diversity on this runway is such an amazing breath of fresh air! From the natural beautiful hair to the beautiful bodies, and skin of every color. Seriously, A+ killing it. Then there’s the collection. With a very BDSM vibe, I love the use of hardware, straps, and more. Not the typical collection you usually see at NYFW. But Chromat is truly making its mark on the community in a wonderfully positive way.
While this was my first year attending fashion week, I’ve been following for ages at this point. It was truly awe-inspiring to attend shows, rub elbows with fashion icons, designers, celebrities, & more, and experience the chaos that is NYFW. I hope you enjoyed the New York Fashion Week recap. Cheers to amazing fashion!
