The Dan Liu NYFW collection featured gorgeous cocktail dresses and ballgowns with a romantic flair. Â Dan Liu is the sister brand of theÂ coutureÂ line Tatsuaki. It was easy to spot the influence of the designerâs Chinese and Japanese heritageÂ as the models hitÂ the runway at the NYFWÂ Skylight venue at Clarkson Square. From the first look it was clear that this Spring / Summer 2017 collection would be one to remember.
The full audience included many notable attendees.Â Spotted along the front row wereÂ Pia Wurtzback (Miss Universe), actress Kelli Berglund, Nicole Kulovany (Miss New York), and editors from Seventeen, Cosmopolitan and VOGUE. All audience members received a single red rose. This gift perfectly accented the romantic and floral themes of theÂ Dan Liu NYFW collection.
Many of the models sported butterfly-inspired makeup, along with white and black handbags from the cruelty-free brand Lime & Soda. Bright prints, lace overlays, and floral appliques made this collection both classic and cohesive.
With a palette of airy whites, teal, berry and black, the Dan Liu NYFW show was an elegant collection. The final look on the runway was a beautiful black ballgown with lace accents. The name of this piece wasÂ Kuro Ni Mijikai â Ball. The model looked stunning in this voluminous, head-turning garment! Designer Dan Liu sat at a propÂ Parisian cafĂ© table at the runway entrance while the models took their final walk. They receivedÂ well-deserved applause from the audience.
This Canadian designer leads the pack when it comes to Spring / Summer 2017 trends. The title of this collection was âNew Pathâ, and it is clear that Dan Liu is on a path to a long and successful career in the fashion industry. Â We loved this Fashion Week collection, and we canât wait to see whatâs in store for future seasons from both Dan Liu and Tatsuaki!
