The autumn/winter show season in New York is always smaller, but there was clearly no shortage of fashion trends and moments to track for the year ahead. Wearable dressing at Proenza Schouler! Opulence at Carolina Hererra! Redefining Womanhood at Tory Burch! Bold and hot clothes at Luar! This season, the runway collections had us all breathing a sigh of relief from the usual performance style of dressing we’ve seen from designers past. Because after all, isn’t making great clothes what these shows should be all about?
The weather may have been up and down, but the city was still in full-swing. Some highlights? Designers like Paloma Spain and Hellesy made swift comebacks to the city. Chloe Sevigny, everyone’s favourite fashion icon extraordinaire opened (and narrated) Proenza Schouler. 23-year-old rapper Ice Spice was a celebrity highlight as she sat front row at Coach and Dion Lee. Khaite also opened its doors for its first NYC shop right after showing its collection in the dreamy and architectural advanced space. Luar took the week’s finale (with a marvellous collection in tow), usually upheld by more established designers.
