The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of New York Fashion Week

February 19, 2018

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

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHROMAT

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.
