So this February New York Fashion Week had a bit of a different vibe than previous seasons. It was defiantly quieter in the city the last two weeks than it has been in the past, however, that is not to say there weren’t showstoppers on the runway. Here’s a look at the designers who we think left their mark this month.
If you’re Carolina Herrera fan, then recent news of her step down as designer from her company comes as a shock. Herrera leaves her brand in the hands of Wes Gordon, who has been at her side for the last couple of years, as she steps into more of an ambassador role. Although this was her last show as head designer, she made sure her departure was full beautiful gowns, wild cat prints, and sophistication with a final runway walk of her signature crisp white blouses and colorful sleek skirts. Gordon will have big shoes to fill, let’s see if he can uphold Carolina’s vision.
How can we mention fashion week without taking a look at Christian Siriano’s diverse show filled with positive messages and curves for days! With this being his 10th anniversary his self-named collection, the young designer dedicated this one to the fans, stopping at nothing to bring fun, flair and sex appeal to his collection. Siriano filled is front row with celebrities like Laverne Cox, Cardi B, and Meg Ryan. He kicked off the show with Ashley Garham rocking a beautiful fiery red faux fur coat paired with a matching waist belt. The show continued with a selection of seductive looks mixed with thigh high boots. As the show went on it only got better, check it out here.
Looking through the photos at the Coach runway the decor was giving us a yearning for fall! Coach took us into the deep into woods, only one of the greats could make a New York City feel so ominous. This collection so effortless designed by Stuart Vevers brought gothic with undertones of the west. The catwalk was decked out with models in high neck silhouettes and floral prints. Selena Gomez, a fan of the brand who adorn the red carpet at last year’s Met Gala in custom Coach, sat front row as models strut in flawless leather jackets.
Alexander Wang is not one to disappoint when it comes to style, each season he brings a new collection of cool to his audience. This year was no different. If the Matrix was remade in 2018, this is what they would wear. Wang ignored the stereotypical fall colors and gave us a black and white collection we would love in our closets. Black ensembles decked with chrome embellishments at the waist will give anyone that hourglass figure.
On the runway, Marc Jacobs never disappoints to put on a show. For his fall collection, he took us back to the 1980s with styles inspired by haute couture and left no trend behind. Models stormed the catwalk with oversized bow tie belts, broad bold shoulders, and baggy pinstripe pants. Instead of bringing those styles into the new era, Jacobs intensified them, by enlarging the shoulders and draping models in layers of fabric. Although his collection may not appeal to those looking for a more sultry sexy attire, his eveningwear sparked some interest when models walked down wearing dresses with matching hair colors.
Yours in Style,
