Georgine was definitely one of the best runway shows we have seen this New York Fashion Week. We have attended the show before and loved their feminine, luxury, high end designs but this show knocked out their previous ones!
This show demonstrated a lot of innovative textures, nature inspired sequin flowers and insects, flowy fabrics, sheer materials, etc. which we appreciated so much! There was a lot of color and fabric blocking which was something we saw in a lot of other shows but Georgine definitely executed it in one of the most creative ways out of everything we have seen.
Below is a collection of some of fave fashion looks from the Georgine
This has been the third time we have attended the Parkchoonmoo fashion show during fashion week and this time around, we were just as impressed as always!
Parkchoonmoo is known for their delicate yet structured designs involving heavy weight fabrics that flow like soft weight fabrics. This show exuded that along with some cold weather accessories that complimented her designs such as arm muffs, faux fury hats, clogs, etc.
Below is a compilation of some of our favorite looks and pieces put together from the show that illustrate just that!
The black and white collection was minimal but made a point. We saw organic cotton voile long dresses paired with faux fur jackets and one was splattered with red paint followed by model carrying paint can, referencing PETA.
Some looks consisted of cropped suit-vests and jackets made from hemp and woolens, organic cotton fleece hooded dresses and long organic cotton t-shirts.
His very exciting “backward” oxfords, which are designed to appear as if shoes are on the wrong feet while structurally wearable, sound, and comfortable were featured again becoming a signature piece of SND.
Layers, layers, and more layers…at the Desigual show at New York Fashion Week.
We witnessed an explosion of texture, color, and patterns at this Fall/ Winter 2016 runway show. The collection was inspired by the vibrancy of city life and “its creative lifeblood.”
The models came down the runway wrapped in geometric, floral, and metallic printed outerwear layered over printed brocade knits and topped off with animal friendly bright faux-fur coats and wraps. Some of our favorite looks included and all black-and-white mix of patterns coat that stole the show. Paired with some of the outfits were vegan leather backpacks, printed sheer gloves and suede pouch bags.
Along with such vibrant and vital patterns we were definitely all about the vegan animal friendly style.
John Paul Ataker, who just presented his collection at New York Fashion Week, is best known for elegant evening wear as well as for creating his own high end textiles throughout the world.
Based out of Instanbul, the core concept of the John Paul Ataker House is the flawless craftsmanship and influence of couture. Since 2012, the Creative Director, Numan Ataker, transformed the intricate designs into ready to wear clothing under the John Paul Ataker label.
During this show, we had the opportunity to experience the fashion forward, carefully designed collection of John Paul Ataker at his finest. The fabrics and delicate details and finishes made each outfit complete, special and unique.
Below are some of our favorite looks from the runway show chosen for the small details we noticed and loved the most.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE MOST FUN MOMENT OF FASHION WEEK?
Seeing how street style photographer Craig Arend works. Chatting with the Song Sisters.
WHAT DID YOU LIKE THE LEAST?
Going up and down the west side, freaking out uselessly about what i should wear
ANY FAVORITE SHOWS?
Loved speaking with Mara Hoffman and Marissa Webb, then seeing their clear aesthetic and beautiful visions come down the runway.
I got last minute tickets to Jeremy Scott and for me, it was a little anticlimactic.
HOW DO YOU STAY ENERGIZED?
I took caffeine breaks, and skipped on shows. I also did not do a lot of parties. people energize me – I took time to keep it real and chat with for example, the person I sat next to, or a blogger at an event or the hairdresser who braided my hair.
Fashion designer Carrie Hammer of New York stood out during New York Fashion Week, not only for her chic, elegant and well crafted designs, but also for her support of “real women”. Carrie Hammer puts women who are real role models on the runway – ones who other women can admired for their accomplishments, not only for their looks. Check out our interview with Carrie Hammer below:
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO BE COME A DESIGNER?
I started to design my own clothes after my frustration with the lack of clothing available for professional business women. I was working in ad sales and had nothing to wear to work! At first it was just for myself, but after an overwhelming response to my dresses, I decided to become a full time designer.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A DESIGNER AND WHAT IS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
I love the powerful women who inspire my designs. Every season, I design each dress specifically for the Role Model that will be wearing it on the runway, and then name the piece after her. This can also be challenging at times, because every woman is different.
WHO IS THE WOMAN WHO WEARS CARRIE HAMMER AND WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT YOUR COLLECTION?
The CARRIE HAMMER woman is powerful, influential, accomplished, inspiring, beautiful, and confident. She is a CEO, and entrepreneur, a philanthropist, an executive, a businesswoman. She is the modern day Superwoman.
What is special about my collection is that my dresses are designed to empower women both inside and outside of the workplace. Traditional “business wear” for women is boring. Our designs are feminine and fun, while still professional and powerful. We want the CARRIE HAMMER woman to feel confident and powerful at work, and then translate that confidence when they step out of the office and head to a happy hour.
HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE IDEA FOR #ROLEMODELS AS MODELS?
At my first New York Fashion Week show, I was going through the checklist of everything we needed with my stylist, and when we got down to model castings I though, “I can’t put underage models on the runway when all of my clients are such role models.” That was a lightning bolt moment for me, and its been Role Models Not Runway Models ever since.
WHO IS YOUR ROLE MODEL?
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A ROLE MODEL?
One’s power, passion, and accomplishments.
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE TO YOUNG GIRLS LOOKING FOR THEIR ROLE MODELS?
Look up to women for their accomplishments, and not only their physical beauty.
HOW DO YOU TRY TO BE A ROLE MODEL?
I want to be a Role Model by giving women and young women alike, a new definition of beauty. I work really hard to hopefully show women than beauty lies in our differences, and that everyone is beautiful; every race, color, age, and ability.
