New York Fashion Week
We just wrapped another season of New York Fashion Week. Typically I do a post every season on what I wore and did to every show but this year I thought I would do something different. I wanted to share about what the week is about which is trends, incredible productions, and upcoming collections from the designers. It honestly is so cool and I’m not sure it’ll ever get old. Not saying it is all glamorous, because truthfully fashion week is probably only 10% glamorous, but it is such an honor. Being invited by brands that I grew up admiring and to sit at their show while previewing their collections and be in some way a representation of who they are is such a dream. Everyday I wake up feeling lucky and I want to share with you some of the magic I saw.
Beauty Trends From New York Fashion Week:
When you think of Fashion Week, naturally you probably think of fashion. In reality, fashion week is so much more. It is art. It is the literal fashion, it is the production of the show, it is hair, it is nails, it is make up…it is everything. I noticed a few common themes with beauty this fashion week:
Trending Make Up
With make up I noticed there were a lot of bold beauty looks. Lots of statement eye colors and an extra smokey eye. Make up looks really seemed to alternate from designers between electric colors to a super smokey eye. Which is your preference?
If you want to fully picture what this upcoming season’s hair trends are all about think true 80s. Yep. The 80s are fully back — bobbi pins, scrunchies, banana clips, blunt hair cuts, curtain bangs and all. If we’re being honest, I never stopped with the scrunchies because regular hair bands give me headaches so I guess we can say I was ahead of the trend ;).
Whenever looking for nail trends, I look to reputable nail brands, like Essie. Essie, which everyone knows I love and have talked about before, is a brand people really look to for trendsetting in the industry. This season, I noticed everything was fairly simple and more muted — even if there was nail art. Jeremy Scott probably had the “craziest” nail art I saw but it was still done in a not too crazy way.
To me, how I rate fashion week shows is more than just the collection. It is the production. It’s so easy to show up at a location and think it’s pretty but not think about all the time, effort and design time people put into creating this “effortlessly” beautiful place.
To me, my favorite shows this season were:
Tory Burch killed New York Fashion Week. I don’t think there are words to describe how incredible it was really. Just look at this photo and you will understand what I mean.
Pyer Moss quickly became one of my favorite brands recently. I love their unique collections so much and I loved their show this season. Not only are their clothes amazing but they had a live choir sing at their show and it was so moving.
Zimmermann truly is one of my favorite brands and anyone who knows me know this. Year after year and season after season they consistently create amazing works of art. Yes, I said art. Their clothes and the detail that goes into each design of Nicky’s is art.
Alexander Wang is always a highly anticipated show. It’s always well thought out, a huge production with a fun after party and always has every A-List celebrity you’d want to see. This year was Alexander Wang’s last time showing at February fashion week so it was especially meaningful.
