Best of NYFW Fall/Winter 2017
This season of New York Fashion Week was one for the books. The designers who showcased their fabulous creations honed in on all of the details, making this fashion week the trendiest of my lifetime. Alice + Olivia was my favorite because of the extreme creativity and feminine touches within every single look. The show even had designs that morphed into the walls, as well as people being body painted to blend into the murals behind the models.
As per usual, Kanye West left his mark with Yeezy Season 5 by causing a stir. Apparently, people did not want to leave and didn't even know when the show had actually ended because the room remained without light as music continued to play in the darkness. Kanye ended up leaving the scene without showing his face after the final look.
Some major highlights were at the Tommy x Gigi show which was really just one big carnival with lots of surprises! Tadashi Shoji put on another great show as well as Noon by Noor. Common themes throughout all of the shows tended to be burgundy, eclectic footwear, fringe, leather, denim and in your face styles. Our beloved trends are here to stay and returning in rather innovative ways. Most collections had very cohesive looks which made keeping up with the shows even more exciting. A lot of the designers decided to skip the runway altogether and take a more modern approach to their shows. Some models stood on platforms in front of Instagram worthy backgrounds while others were featured slowly spinning around on TV screens. There was so many aesthetically pleasing setups to admire.
It is safe to say that the majority of NYFW's designers really catered to their audiences with these shows. The styles spoke to me in many ways that I had never witnessed before. Even designers I am not particularly fond of/don't follow had pieces that I was intrigued by. 2017 seems like it's going to be the most fashionable year for both the trickle down and trickle up theories. People of all backgrounds will be able to rock even the most coveted looks!
