Ahhh New York Fashion Week has come and gone but I am still relishing in the fabulous clothes sent out this season. Now we are onto London and I am loving what I have been seeing so far. But back to NY, this spring 2016 season was something else! With all the exciting new clothes and wonderful locations of the shows, I barely focused on any school work. This required my full attention! And boy did it get my attention!
Adam Selman, man oh man, I am starting to fall for his clothes harder than ever before. The white pants with the fowy top is what I want to LIVE in, forever!
Alexander Wang showcased what he does best: his super sensual and super cool clothes. He makes it look so easy to look so sexy yet kind of rocker-ish. He celebrated his tenth anniversary and this show was quite a celebration.
Altuzarra. I have no words, the way Joseph Altuzarra oozes sex appeal with great femininity amazes me. The slits are his signature and they were better than ever this season. (Check out his take on the espadrille, I am already coveting them)
BCBG was very California surfer girl. I have nothing against it, but I am having an issue getting behind that look. But I did enjoy the resurgence of the bucket hat.
How can one not love the Project Runway alum Christian Siriano? His personality is addicting just like his clothes. He always keeps me entertained and is becoming an even better designer as time passes on.
Derek Lam was quite polished yet free in one way to describe it. He always is so far ahead in thinking and it gives me excitement to see his shows whenever possible. (the cut-out shoulder made it big this season)
Givenchy brought me to tears; not just for the exquisite clothing but also for his meaningful reasoning on why he held the show in New York instead of Paris this season. Riccardo Tisci held the show on 9/11 and made his guests wait a longer amount of time than usual to take in the wonderful skyline of New York from Pier 26. The guests were able to ponder the events that had happened 14 years ago on that day. His great respect for the city and the people apart of it moved me to tears. But the clothes as well, made me heart race and the decadent materials were just a dream to take in.
Diane Von Furstenberg just keeps getting better. Every season leaves me wanting more and every aspect of the show from the hair down to the shoes is always on point. The brand is so classic and an integral part of American fashion but it has modernized extremely well and has retained its greatness.
