We’re live from NYFW and with a rundown of what you might have missed so far.
Today, is a sombre day for New Yorkers, with the anniversary of September 11th and, so all the shows and designers today are paying their respects.
Victoria Beckham who kicked off her show this morning at 10am included a mention in the runway notes that her show was in honour of those who passed, and she held a two-minute silence.
While the mood was sombre at Victoria Beckham, the clothes were breathtaking, celebrating strong women, with free spirits. Look out for our review here
Christian Siriano had a models-of-all-sizes show.
Never one to shy away from making his voice heard during Fashion Week, Siriano wowed the crowd last night with a fashion for all sizes collection, using models of different shapes and sizes. The inspiration for the show was “the isle of Capri’ and the collection was a sea of white, black and burnt orange (plus some of the dresses are already available on Amazon fashion for purchase). But it was the groundbreaking models who made the impact, and the inclusive show was perfect for Siriano who has previously teamed up with plus size retailer Lane Bryant on a collection.
Alexander Wang is teaming up with Adidas
Alexander Wang’s show is always one of the most eagerly awaited each season, and he always delivers. This season’s show (held last night) had everything from A-list models to an after party with a pop-up McDonalds (amazing!). But if you missed that or can’t afford the price point of his main line collection, good news, he’s just announced a collaboration with Adidas Originals, providing an 84- piece unisex collection.
Following his previous sold out H&M collection, Wang is back, teaming up with the sportswear brand. But you won’t find the collection in stores, as it’s being sold in pop-up trucks driving around New York, London and Tokyo from today. Follow Alexander Wang on Instagram for more…
Tibi used belts as hair ties….
Tibi’s womenswear collection is always a staple on the NYFW calendar, perfect for fashion editors and working women alike, who are looking for office-appropriate staples with a directional design approach. This season while the head to toe looks were very beautiful (as expected) it was the beauty looks that further caught our attention. Aveda, with head hair stylist Frank Rizzieri, created beautiful hair ties using belts from the collection, for an extremely polished look (with a nice dose of personality).
