With over 80 shows scheduled over 8 days, New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is a frantic blur for many. For those who are not involved in the fashion industry or fashion week the tell-tale signs that it’s ‘that time of year’ are: i. Flawless long legged models and fashionista’s in stylish ensembles everywhere (they deserve a mini fashion show of their own), ii. The best bars & restaurants are closed for private events iii. No taxicabs available!
So, now that NYC is back to its normal self… there is only a small window of opportunity to digest the collections (re-visit photos or watch the shows again online) before the London Spring shows kick off.
My personal favourites are as follows:
Jason Wu – Lady Like, Sexy, Naughty, Tailoring, Lace & Leather
Alexander Wang – Sporty, Deconstructed, Clean Lines & Shapes, Volume
Altuzarra – Moroccan, Gold Embellishments & Tassels, Prints, Classic Shapes
Proenza Schouler – Boxy, Patchwork, Leather, Laser Cut Detail, Strong Prints
