New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2018 has come to an end and here are a few designers that were the talk of the town. . Just as designers create unique fashionable pieces they also create pieces that aren’t always appealing. They brought elegant styles, styles from the past, implied messages of women empowerment and even a message about drugs.
CHRISTIAN SIRIANO For his 10 th anniversary in the world of fashion Christian Siriano celebrated on the runway with 72 glamorous looks. The collection was royalty-inspired. Women walked in cocktail and curve-hugging dresses. His wardrobe is inclusive when it comes to size and gender.
Tom Ford had everyone talking about his first underwear collection. Men strutted in briefs from nude to metallic-colored boxer shorts. The American designer sure knows how to give men a sophisticated look with shimmering blazers and stylish sporty outerwear. Ford brought a dose of women empowerment to the stage featuring handbags that stated “Pussy power”, but women were draped in ugly 80’s inspired, neon animal-print apparel.
ALEXANDER WANG For his last fashion show in New York Alexander Wang delivered killer 80’s corporate style attire intertwined with the 90’s Matrix. The show included streetwear but Wang’s creative business looks stood out by making women look like bosses.
No collection was as fiery as Chromat. The swimwear and athletic brand used Hot Cheetos as an accessory. Yes, the snack that Kylie Jenner, Tyga and Rihanna, have once been spotted munching on. Models had bungee cord pockets to hold their Cheetos while those who didn’t have pockets snacked on their chips as they headed down the runway. Chromat celebrated body positivity by including plus size models and models of various races and ethnicity.
MARC JACOBS Marc Jacobs had a great choice of colors, silhouettes and textures for his fall 2018 presentation. He used vibrant colors for beautiful tops and cashmere jackets but much of the clothing was oversized and big on the shoulders. This is great for
someone with narrow shoulders but not good for someone trying to hide their broad shoulders.
RAF SIMONS The words “DRUGS”, “LSD”, “XTC” and “GHB” are some of the words that appeared on knees of trousers, elbow patches on coats and knit scarves, from Raf Simons fshow. He may be trying to do good by sending a warning about drugs but will it really influence people to not use drugs or will it make people think it’s cool? Who knows how the public will feel when the clothing becomes available.
Let’s see which of these looks become a fall trend.
