September 2018 – It may have been called “New York” Fashion Week, however this year it was a Fashion Week without borders. Designers, models, and entrepreneurs from around the globe celebrated diversity. The cross cultural vibe on the catwalks and runways made this Fashion Week the most inclusive in its history. All ages, shapes and sizes were welcome and were here in New York City!
The fashion world swung open the door to diversity. More opportunities than ever before – Unleashed creativity and vision with a new spirit in the city – so NYC VIBE begins the tour of the runways.
At the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Rihanna’s Savage by Fenty lingerie show lived up to its promise of being an “immersive experience”. Featuring a garden of multi-racial models including Gigi and Bella Hadid, Slick Woods and Joan Small, the iconic singer re-defined glamour, casting aside the traditional standards of beauty. Ever see very pregnant dancers on the runway? There are here as are plus size models. What was the norm is no more – Reality has set in.
At the Metropolitan Pavilion, ASC Fashion returned for its fourth year, showcasing an exciting array of international models, designers, and musicians who would never have had this opportunity in past years to demonstrate their keen talent and knowledge of the ever changing consumer market.
Downtown at the Dixon Place Theater, Style Pointe explored the relationship between fashion and dance. Choreographers from different genres created dance vignettes to showcase the wide variety of fashion collections. This unique method is challenging and rewarding for the designer and choreographers to be in sync while showcasing the important features of the lines.
NYC VIBE was asked to help defend Brooklyn when the Spike Lee inspired “Defend Brooklyn” line debuted its next collection under the watchful eye of talented designer Alex Wright. If you want New York attitude and spirit, then these are the clothes for you.
On Washington Street, China Day returned for a day of China Cool – A celebration of the shift China is making from a manufacturing powerhouse, to a design and creativity powerhouse. The popular brand JNBY, espousing a modern aesthetic, aims to make convertible clothes that would allow its wearers to interpret them per their personal style. The clothes have developed a strong fan base and opened a pop-up shop during Fashion week for New Yorkers to see for themselves.
New York Fashion Week embraced a new spirit by including models and participants of all lifestyles: gender fluid, disabled, plus size and all colors, beliefs and ethnicities. NYFW continued the industry’s evolution where everyone is represented!
