This time of year is everything to a fashion lover. The shows and the street style literally makes our hearts smile. We had the chance to attend some amazing shows and presentations. Check out some of our favorites!
The FIT graduate is known for using vintage materials to create beautiful ensembles. This presentation was no different. She even included the popular trend of transparency to two of our favorite looks.
FASHION HONG KONG
This collective is comprised of multiple talented designers. Annette Chan’s collection, ANVEGLOSA, Harrison Wong’s label HARRISON WONG and HEAVEN PLEASE+, created by Yi Chan and Lary Cheung. Wong focused on deconstructed puffers while Anveglosa was all about leathers. Heaven Please+ had a playful and creative theme with metallics and flashy materials.
Another dynamic duo was LIE by Chung Chung Lee and GREEDILOUS by Younhee Park. This was one of our favorite shows with the creative patterns and textures. Both designers strived to have a political meaning behind their pieces. Fashion Week Online said, “Inspired by the striking image of a wary polar bear stranded on a shrinking iceberg, LIE made its second NYFW appearance with the F/W18 collection, “GLOBAL WARMING; It’s not justICE.” The collection aimed to portray an important message that “it’s not just ice” that is affected by the devastations of global warming. This season, Chung strived to bring awareness to the collapsing unity between humans and nature with his collection.”
Dan Liu’s looks were perfect for all the #girlbosses around the globe. Once we found out the show was named after the 1977 Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me, it all made sense. The looks screamed sensuality and empowerment.
SON JUNG WAN
The color schemes and textures were out of this world. Furs have been on trend for the past few seasons and this designer took that trend to a new level with volume and prints. There was a major disco feel at Spring Studios with the music pumping and the models strutting. The best thing about Son Jung Wan’s designs was the individuality; each piece could be worn on its own as a dope statement piece.
Designer, Amanda Williamson made sure the world knew that this collection was dedicated to the woman all about her business. ENNYLAUP stayed true to its love of loose feminine silhouettes and bold colors.
Outerwear and plaid have always been Romeo Hunte’s subject matter. This season he gave us glamorous lumberjack vibes. Under every piece, the models donned Tyr wetsuits or full body Speedos. Above all, we loved the intricacy of the zippers on the designs as they could be transformed into different styles.
Vivi Zubedi’s designs have been dubbed modest fashion but they were giving attitude and ferocity through each and every design. Our eyes were glued to the headwear. From embellished caps to velvet hijabs and beautiful veils, we were in complete awe.
Negris Lebrum’s color story was sultry. The collection titled, “Black to Basic” envisioned the rebirth of Negris LeBrum. The brand is built on the 1940s love story between a French Creole woman named Negris and a man, Sam LeBrum. You can see that the love story mirrors the lifestyle, culture and heritage of the brand. We loved how minimalistic the designs were because we would easily rock these looks any day of the week.
First and foremost, shoutout to Leanne Marshall for featuring curvy girls on the runway. Many of the materials used for her designs were from hand-dyed bridal materials and organically sourced cottons. The romance was seen in the delicate but colorful pieces to her fiance presenting her with a bouquet of flowers.
