FASHION WEEK HAPPENINGS: Naeem Khan gave the ultimate wish to an 11-year old girl through the Make-A-Wish foundation. Mary, who is fighting a life-threatening illness met with the designer to help plan her dream, custom dress. The dress was created in less than 24 hours and Mary walked the runway in her dress with Naeem Khan at the end of his runway show. We love seeing members of the fashion community give back!
It looks as though Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez were feeling the corset as one of their inspirations for their Fall/Winter collection. A lot of the pieces featured some sort of corset lacing, whether it was around the stomach, used as a closure on a coat, or for unique cut-outs on the garments. A few pieces made me think of bandages used to wrap a mummy.
Psychedelic, meet mix prints. Anna Sui, continues her reign of mixed print mastery. The prints made me think of flower children of the sixties, but with the deep, darker hues normally associated with Fall and Winter. I particularly loved the colorful wool, plaid skirt suits.
I’m pretty sure every model during the Marchesa show was either a Queen, Elf, or Fairy. I have one word to describe Marchesa’s F/W 16 collection and that’s ornate. Every detail on every dress or gown was magnificent. I felt instantly transported to another time, maybe even a fantasy world, like Game of Thrones? Either way every dress had something extra, and I think any one of us ladies would feel the Queen of the World in one of these gowns.
Public School creative directors Designers Dao–Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborn have brought the change to the name DKNY. Still streetwear inspired, Dao-Yi and Maxwell reimagined menswear for women. In this collection, menswear gets cropped, torn, and restructured. There were some puffy pieces that reminded me of Missy Elliot’s music video for The Rain.
I definitely pick-up an Asian-inspired vibe from Bibhu Mohpatra’s collection. The peplum belts, the extreme cat-wing eyeliners, the dragonfly prints, and the light floral prints. The colors made me think of Kimonos.
Naeem Khan’s collection was gorgeous as always. In my review I saw a lot of clothes that reminded me of 1920s glamour and the ever popular Art Deco symmetrical prints. The colors were bold, and the sparkle was everywhere. I enjoyed the tiered dresses.
When I checked out Delpozo’s collection, it made me think of colorful toys. The shapes and silhouettes used were interesting. I definitely picked up an Asian-inspired theme from this collection as well. The collection made me think of origami. The intricate details of the flowers on some of the garmets, the way the sash belts were tied, and the tulle. I don’t know if I could pull off these pieces, but they were definitely fun to watch coming down the runway!
Michael Kors’ collection was the epitome of ready to wear with a few surprises. Fur belts, appliques, cut-outs, and feathers, tool the collection to the next level. There was even one color that set the entire collection off, and that was the neon green used on a few of the looks.
