cray, cray, crayzee times.
In this post, I will be talking about the rest of my NYFW Fall 2016. To shop some of each designer’s pieces and outfits, refer to the end of the post to see similar and shop-able styles.
This NYFW season has blown me away with the designs offered on the runway. The next impressive show was none other than the incredible Tadashi Shoji. I was so excited when I got to Skylight that I had to create a snapchat intro to remember this moment:
And boy, was I right in the level of excitement. The two big screens on the walls opened with some crazy, trippy video of an Asian-styled video of animals linking appendages to one another with their snouts or tails. Here is the example of the elephant:
I remember thinking to myself, “What the hell?” But then I was like, it’s Fashion Week, whatever. Sometimes designers like to mess with the human mind and question their taste in fashion. So, this wasn’t so bad.
Then, the designs came flowing down the runway. This was by far the most beautiful set of designs I have seen this entire NYFW. Tadashi gets a 10 for design, 10 for elegance, and 10 for wearability. The pieces were absolutely stunning.
Next up was Demoo Parkchoonmoo – another show I very much look forward to during NYFW. I had great front row seats, so I was able to get great footage. Demoo definitely had a more androgynous aesthetic about her designs. To me, it looked like there was femininity in each piece and they were sewn together with a masculine touch.
The next morning, my first show was Dan Liu. His designs were the most wearable of the runways this season. There were lots of cute floral dresses and LBD’s that walked down the runway. I was excited for this show because not only was I assigned to sit front row, but my name was also on my seat with a rose! That really was the cherry on top!
Then, came the watch company, Kyboe’s debut! I was greeted by #1 foam fingers and was gifted a watch of my choice before the show. Unfortunately, my watch got soiled from rubbing against my Chanel lambskin bag. Womp. That’s what I get for choosing a white watch, huh.
I really liked Kyboe’s show because it was the most fun. The music was loud like a club, I felt like dancing, and the models were really having a good time. There was a mix of women and male models (who were shirtless! :O) who smiled endlessly and really interacted with the audience. It was such a nice change of pace to attend this show.
The last show that impressed me was Son Jung Wan. I’ve never been to this Korean designer’s show before, but she really made her mark this season. Like Kyboe, I enjoyed the fact that she had both women’s and men’s collections showing. The runway ebbed and flowed with emerald greens and striking reds that boasted extremely unique patterns and cuts. Towards the end, famous supermodel, Pat Cleveland, made a grand entrance by prancing with the models.
And that’s a wrap! What a great way to end NYFW. This was by far my busiest season I have ever experienced as a blogger. I couldn’t make it to every single event, but I was happy I made it to these. My experiences were irreplaceable. I can’t wait to see what’s in stores for next season!
