I hope the week is treating you well so far! Mine is good, but it is pretty busy! That's okay though, it keeps me out of trouble as they say!
This week for my Fashion Insp post, I wanted to write about New York Fashion Week! It is one of the most elite fashion events in particular for emerging designers. I love to follow Fashion Week! Thankfully with the help of social media, it has gotten more accessible to get that 'front row' seat! New York Fashion Week is already well under way, and Charlotte Fashion Week is about to begin today, so I decided what a better time to take a closer look at Fashion Week than now!
Through Instagram, I -along with everyone else- have been able to see many of the runway looks. So far, my favorites are Christian Siriano (hands down!), Tommy Hilfiger, and Jason Wu.
Interestingly enough, of the 'Big 4' fashion shows, NY used to be the last to take place. It became the first in 1998 when designer Helmut Lang decided to move from Vienna to NY and showcase his collections before any of the big European shows. He was quickly joined by other designers, which made NY the first major show of the year to take place!
One thing I love about NWFY is the venues! Over the course of the week numerous shows are taking place all over the city! I believe this year Christian Siriano had a collection debut in Elizabeth Taylor's home! Others take place in high rise buildings. Some in ballrooms. Vogue World -which I have to look into for a future post- was held outside in pouring rain! It is just another level of creativity that is showcased at NYFW!
I hope you enjoyed this! And stay tuned! I have some exciting things to share with you soon! See you on Friday!
