NYFW Day 3: Son Jung Wan, Christian Cowan, and Jonathan Simkhai

Day 3 of NYFW was actually my fifth day in the city! If you count the two days of photo shoots, LIM college panel discussion with Fashion Mingle, and the ever evolving events that happen during fashion week. So you can probably imagine the exhaustion at that point! Nevertheless actual day 3 of shows were nothing shy of amazing! Jonathan Simkhai being my all time favorite of the entire week.

After several seasons of attending NYFW shows, I think the presentation style “shows” are my favorite. Not only are they more personal but they give you the chance to appreciate the designs and then mingle and meet some of the best people in the industry! Jonathan Simkhai’s presentation was exactly that. However my absolutely favorite part was getting to see the behind the scenes. Seeing how the designer interacted with his models, the photographers, that event staff, his team, not only made me appreciate his brand, but him as a person in this industry.

I’ve heard some horror stories about designers and how they treat people. So seeing first hand the artist and the environment he creates with his team was truly impressive. Each season I gain more and more respect for those behind the scenes. Well cheers to another NYFW in the books!

NYFW Day 2

Michael Costello, Chromat, and Vivienne Hu

Day 2 started with the TRESemmé team over at Spring Studios. They gave me a super cute braid and loose tousled curls. Then I was off to the Michael Costello show. The show was filled with floral dresses, bold colors, and sexy silhouettes. The Chromat show was nothing less then amazing! Every season the show gets bigger and better. Vivienne Hu gave me serious spring fever! (already, yes!) The lace, bright pale pinks and yellows, I seriously need to get one of her pieces!

If you followed along my NYFW journey you know that I saw a tremendous amounts of stripes and ruffles on the runway This is nothing new for fashion but designers are definitely getting even more creative with this trend. Another thing I loved seeing was muted pinks and loud pops of color! This is going to be huge for me since I tend to have a more monochrome color pallet. My favorite new trend I saw had to be the replacement of last years corset trend with a sweater tied at the waist. Creatures of Comfort make this look effortless. As always Chromat is one of my favorite shows for the way they challenge diversity, race, size, and even gender. I love that the brand continuously pushes to stand out in that way. Not to mention seeing Jordyn Woods walk was amazing! (see it here)   All in all this was another impressive and thrilling NYFW. It was a crazy week's worth of inspiration overload, and I can't wait to see what's coming next!

Day Three & Four; NYFW F/W

Day Three:

Day three was yet again busy but definitely more relaxed then the previous days. (day one & two: click here)  I started the day off with Designer Runa Ray. I was so excited to see her debut this NYFW, and she did not disappoint. I absolutely loved her mix of art and fashion. I also loved the unexpected menswear pieces! I'm sure you can guess why. "Hint" Honestly Him.

Day Four: 

Day four was short & sweet for me! Red and black seem to be my favorites, which was totally not planned. These button track pants were the perfect pant for the chilly weather here in NYC. In honor of the mr.selfportrait show from day three, I paired these sporty pants with Robert Clergerie x Self Portrait Patent Point Toe Pumps.  Francesca Liberatore is always a favorite for me. This season her plaid and floral pieces were my favorite! I saw similar styles at the Dan Liu show.
