NYFW: My First Fashion Week Roundup

NYFW: My First Fashion Week Roundup

New York Fashion Week has gone as swiftly as it came. This NYFW was the first I attended – feel like I need a onesie that reads “Blogger’s First NYFW” – and it was FUN! Here’s a quick roundup of what I did and what I wore – enjoy!

Events

NYFW SS17 Roundup

The Gap is Open: The pop-up shop at The Supermarket, a gallery space in TriBeCa featured a cool art and music exhibit, along with Gap items both vintage and new for sale. At the shop, I customized one of the (free!) logo tees.

Tommy Pier: Tommy Hilfiger turned the South Street Seaport into a carnival over the weekend with free food, beverages, and pop-up shops where you could purchase the brand new Tommy X Gigi collection and vintage clothing.

Rebecca Minkoff #RunwaytoRetail: The designer closed down Greene Street for her street style-esque runway show. What was super exciting was that she had several bloggers walk her runway, and then following that you could enter her shop to purchase her Fall collection. Unfortunately, no good pictures from this one 🙁

Runway

Son Jung Wan: Immediately after the RM event, I head over to Skylight at Moynihan Station, NYFW central, for the Son Jung Wan runway show. Her collection was inspired by the 70’s so naturally, Pat Cleveland – legendary model – made an appearance by closing out the show and dancing down the runway.

Timo Weiland: On Sunday I head over to the Meatpacking District for Timo Weiland’s presentation at Samsung 837, a Samsung experience center. This was all around my favorite collection – casual, cool, and rife with ’90s flare.

Katy Xiomara: Finally (phew!) on Monday I attended two shows. The first was for Portuguese designer Katty Xiomara whose collection was so cute! I felt it was ultra feminine with its ruffles, lace, and some sailor flare. This collection was great, unfortunately anything but a front row seat ends up in bad photo quality.

Nolcha Collective: I ended the night going to the last segment of shows from Nolcha Collective, where three collections walked the runway: Nikistavia, Syu Syu Han, and Cashmere Song. I love designs with edge, so naturally Syu Syu Han was my favorite. Cashmere Song, while totally different, had me – dare I say – wishing it was winter so I could cover myself in cashmere.

Some trends I spotted:

  • Platforms and the “ugly” sandal: Yes, the illusion of big feet and clunkiness is in.
  • Mix your prints: It’s fun!
  • When in doubt, neutrals are a pretty damn good choice.
  • #IWokeUpLikeThis will still be in full effect: Pull your hair up to a messy top-knot and keep-it (your makeup) -simple-stupid.
