Kicking off the world of global trends, New York Fashion Week has been nothing short of noteworthy! From renowned designer Prabal Gurung to Taofeek Abijako, who is blazing a trail for Nigerian-born designers in America and Indian-based Kanika Goyal, this season has already left us thirsty for more. Here are some of the must see highlights from the event - so far.
Christian Siriano had a big week! From custom-making Vice President Harris' burgundy power suit to Alicia Silverstone's iconic yellow plaid skirt set from Clueless for her Super Bowl commercial, his runway certainly didn't go unnoticed. To top it all off, he even scored a cameo in Cher Horowitz's debate class - talk about taking fashion by storm this past week. For his Audrey Hepburn-inspired collection, he took cues from a 1990s TV docuseries featuring her touring gardens around the world, creating pieces that were truly representative of them. Japanese-influenced hats in purple check and bold 3D floral embellishments dazzled on vivid fuchsia hues, while roses decorated swirly black and white prints - giving us nods to classic fashion icons like Hepburn herself! Vibrant yellow solids also made an appearance, also adding even more beauty to this dreamy garden affair.
Celebrity fashion icon Chloe Sevigny opened the Proenza Schouler show with a room full of stars. Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez created this collection to honor both new and old women in their lives - an ode to sophisticated intellectual style they've perfected over two decades. Embracing their mothers' maiden names for label inspiration, these designers celebrated real-life reality at Chelsea Factory through classic yet stylish pieces.
Sergio Hudson lit up the runway with a blast from the past – his latest collection fed off early '90s flair and designer Jason Naylor's punchy murals for an explosion of energy. With shoulder pads that screamed nostalgia, fluorescent hues, and graffiti prints to set fire to otherwise classic silhouettes like mini dress suits - it was art meets fashion in all its multi-colored glory! Models reigned supreme amidst thumping beats while rocking Fran Drescher hairstyles à la late 80's vibes - truly making this show one unforgettable experience. Stay tuned for more updates from NYFW.
