NYFW Gets Political On The Runway

Fashion is making their political voice heard this week and quite loudly. NYFW designers and models on and off the runway are utilizing their talent and art to speak up about the current issues we are facing. It was to be expected with women’s rights being challenged, immigration injustices and the talk of walls and bans in the White House. We were wondering just a few weeks ago why there was so much silence from the fashion industry. Well, it looks as though they decided to let the clothes do the talking. Shows like Prabal Gurung, Public School, Christian Siriano just to name a few, made their beliefs quite clear on the runway. We are all living in a world that is completely different than it was ten years ago, five years ago or even five months ago when we last had fashion month. With so much divisiveness and uncertainty, the one thing…

NYFW Day 1: Brock Collection/Ulla Johnson

Day one at NYFW has concluded. Today we bring you some highlights of what opening day at the tents looked like for Fall/Winter 2017. We start with the Brock Collection. Never heard of them? Ok here is the rundown. The design team consists of a husband and wife, Laura Vassar and Kris Brock who won the top prize at the CFDA/Vogue fashion fund award. Here comes their first presentation since their big win. We enjoyed this collection and once again from the looks of things, textures and luxe furs continue to make strong statements for next fall (although we prefer faux, we’ll take the real deal as inspiration). There were lady-like looks including pencil skirts, poufy dresses and polished daywear. We loved the cinched waistlines, plaids and gingham patterns with nude and camel tones. Another collection that we enjoyed was Ulla Johnson. Her pieces had bohemian elements with exceptional outerwear tailoring.…

NYFW Provides Alternative Diversion

We can all agree that many of us are suffering from political fatigue as of late. Even if you never touch upon the topic, somehow you have come across the endless daily headlines. Trying to decipher what is real and what is not in the news is a daily occurrence and using our best judgment has certainly become almost a superhero-like power. With so many polarized points of views and contentious discussions, we all need a bit of distraction and for all those who love fashion there are some ‘alternative options’. Today marks the official first day of New York Fashion Week, which has also been hit with 2017’s first big snow storm. We are also in the midst of award season, with the Grammy’s on February 12th (we will have all the fashion best dressed on the blog), and the Oscars on February 26th. Oh, and FYI there are…

TOMMY x GIGI’S SHOW & CARNIVAL LIGHTS UP NYFW

American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and model Gigi Hadid were the power duo that took over Pier 16 on Friday evening during NYFW. As a brand ambassador, Gigi collaborated together with Tommy this season for a one of a kind autumn/winter 2016 collection labeled TommyxGigi. Tommy’s show was set in a carnival themed event at the legendary South Street Seaport in New York City. The ambiance included arcade games, food stands, amusement rides including a Ferris wheel with 80s music blaring in the background. Once you arrived at Pier 16 (named Tommy Pier), you knew this wasn’t going to be an ordinary fashion show, this was going to be an experience. Gigi opened the show with one of the best looks of the night. A military jacket, a tied nautical shirt, fringed neck scarf and high-waisted leather pants. The rest of the collection was true to Hilfiger’s American style. Among the many looks,…
