New York, the North American hub for fashion. The constantly changing nature of the city breathes ideas and a plethora of designers that turn them into clothes.
Many people associate New York’s fashion with household names such as Thom Browne, Peter Do, or Collina Strada, but the city’s style offering goes way beyond that.
Attending a fashion show is a weird and wonderful experience. It is a privilege; you get exclusive access to the clothes in an intimate setting before the rest of the world can see them. This season, NYFW witnessed a lot of nostalgia mixed with goth influences and classical, never-ageing pieces.
Starting strong with a presentation by Tara Babylon, taking place nowhere else but in the streets of New York. The designer expresses the city’s spirit by uniting quirky colourfulness with elegant performance art. Adeam played the song ‘miss you’ by blink182 in the background, transporting the audience into teenage angst and nostalgia. Naturally, the collection blended musical Y2K memory and fashion with references from the film ‘Clueless’. Moreover, Wiederhoeft, one of the names to watch from New York, enthused their viewers with a symphony of modern elegance meets goth concept. Brands like Hellesy, Tanner Fletcher or Son Jung Wang stand for everyday elegance. Alpha Tauri and Who Decides War are tripping clothing back to its origins – the functionality. Finally, KGL, Rentrayage and Marissa Wilson throw some colours in the mix.
