New York Fashion Week: a week packed full of back-to-back fashion shows. From running in high-heels to the terrible weather New York City gave us, only the chic will survive.
The week starts out with so much motivation to dress up to par, with hopes of photographers crowding around you trying to fit in their street style photo. Then the week ends in sore feet & sore hearts (because fashion week is ending).
With all the shows I attended, I picked out a couple of my favorites, following with their collection that stood out to me.
I saw shows with Korean influence, street styles, and luxury gowns. At Concept Korea, we saw Jeffrey Campbell inspired chunky shoes, fringe, and tassels. Pattern play and mixing textures was also a trend in Yohanix and Jarrett fall/winter 16 collections.
Libertine and Rag & Bone went in the total opposite direction with style but in the same Skylight location. Libertine used neons and constant pops of colors. With LGBT influence, the show was all-together a performance & a statement in itself.
Rag & Bone had a live band performing at the venue, along with a huge trend in their Fall/Winter collection of street styles. Everything from trendy sneakers to bombers. Men’s fashion included, the street style seemed gender neutral. There was a consistency in the gender styles. Both used the same color tones, and shapes. Rag & Bone really set the tone for the year on urban wear.
Last but not least, the elegant gowns from Oscar de la Renta didn't disappoint. The brand now has multiple designers that individually worked on certain pieces. They all combined the collection together for a couture line. Use of pastel colors with a few little black dresses set the mood for their venue. The venue had light mint carpet covering the floor, seats, and ceiling. The collection ended with a finale full of silk and taffeta and fashion editors rushing out of the mint green venue.
Tones & trends were set for the year! That’s a wrap on Fashion Week for the Fall/Winter season.
