With every fashion show that gets unveiled, there is the potential to draw the attention of the crowds as a whole with something different, something unique and an inspiration that leaves us begging for more. The New York Fashion Week fall 2016 that has just ended is no different, with some pretty memorable moments to add to our recollections and our scrapbooks of fashion, ranging from the inspirations of the designers in their creations and use of models to the use of intriguing mechanisms to get a point across. While some sets were pretty out of this world, others were just plain but had their feature presentations make the mark on our memories. As such, we have pulled together some of the most memorable moments from the different fashion week shows that went on stage these past few days, marking the start of the fashion month.
First on our list is the Zac Posen focus on the models of color, his inspiration stemming from African princesses and his mind on the beauty of diversity that we see on a daily basis. His own Instagram post included a quote stating “Diversity is what makes the world beautiful and inspiring.” We could not agree more there!
Next comes to futuristic looks that include a whole lot of metallic coloring and textures, with a flirty glamour to the creations as per the Michael Kors show. It was certainly intriguing to see such pieces among the more cold-weather friendly tweeds for sure!
What was really fun was to have a show staged on an actual cruise ship, something that Tommy Hilfiger pulled off and with great tenacity too! His theme was nautical and so was his set as he fused fashion and entertainment once again. In the brand’s own words, Tommy Hilfiger is married to fashionable entertainment.
Diane von Furstenberg certainly knows how to party it seems, while she is also one of the most influential designers in the industry. Forward-thinking and always down to try something different, she brought her set to life and got in to party with her girls, showing off that grandma can bust some moves!
Alexander Wang, long known for his rebellious fashion, really stepped it up a notch with his rocker girls and graphics, deliberately opposing the standard definitions of beauty and tastes, imploring the ladies to ignore outdated taboos and instead seek out that which is off-limits.
Vampires stormed the runway at the Fenty x Rihanna show, with very little left to the imagination with some of the ensembles that made camel toes look good, bringing in the athleisure, but also the dark and the attitude-driven. It was very gothic and what is more, there was a certain sense of come hither throughout it all.
Finally, we are not about to forget Kanye West’s upsetting of the fashion week schedule, nor his giant concert at Madison Square, where he unveiled his athleisure line of Yeezy Season 3, as well as his new album called “The Life of Pablo”, which will be exclusively available on Tidal and never sold otherwise. We kind of felt like we were staring at zombies at some points though, so that has to be a little scary.
