I’ve had the honor to attend the New York Fashion Week for the second time now and I have to say that I was not disappointed. Although New York has been gloomy for days now, the outfits seen on the streets were everything but gloomy. Even though I love attending fashion shows, one of my favorite things is seeing all the street style. Animal prints, neons, western boots and oversized blazers were everywhere. Not to mention the 80’s revival of cycling shorts and padded shoulders.
The first show that I had attended was nANA jUDY. A cool streetwear brand from Australia. The collection centered around the concept of 1001 Dalmatians and integrated a cool athleisure aesthetic very familiar to New York. The runway was star studded, with your favorite young models, from Winnie Harlow and Shaun Ross to Josephine Skriver and Neels Visser. The collection was definitely effortless and wearable and very permanent to today’s popularity of denim and logo mania.Here are just some of my favorite pieces from the collection:
For my outfit of the day, I decided to go with a vintage cheetah print blouse and a Club Monaco fringe skirt. I accessorized my look with a Fendi-baguettesque bag and pvc mules.
The last day of fashion week, I attended the C +plus SERIES show, created by a Taiwanese-born designer C.T.LIU. Not gonna lie, again it didn’t disappoint. The collection managed to incorporate the latest trends but reconstruct them in unique ways. C.T.LIU featured cycling shorts and men’s blazers in his collection but completely reconstructed them to make them more contemporary and unique. A true 2019 take on an 80s trend.The designer also incorporated color and prints in very modern and sophisticated ways. A conventional piece like a denim jacket was redesigned in a way that it had an unsuspecting print(a green/yellow checkered print) and fit but was still very wearable and chic. And that is what I loved about this collection.Although there were many pieces I loved in the collection, here are my favorites:
As for my own outfit, I decide to go with a 60s colorful vibe. I paired a 60s print vintage dress with a yellow corduroy blazer from Zara. As for my accessories I wore Adidas white sneaks with athletic socks, a vintage bag, Kate Spade earrings and tinted pink sunglasses.
Even though I did not master my Anna Wintour poker face, I have to say that my experience at NYFW was definitely a success.
