NYFW Review - The Best!


Blog time again and this time its all about one of the major events to happen this month (fashion month) which was New York Fashion Week! This is one of my favourite times of the year as it means you can fully immerse yourself in the world of fashion for four weeks and gain an unbearable amount of inspiration! Show after show, collection after collection, social media frenzies and  FROW (front row) buzz NYFW came to an end on the 11/09/14. A unfortunate day, however the show must go on. In this blog post I'll reveal my favourite collections! Next time: The "Worst" of NYFW!

4/09/14 - Nicolas K SS15 - This collection was all about effortless safari style. Adventure, drapery, tassels, silks and neutral tones such as khaki, black, white and camel. Beautiful.

05/09/14 - Jason Wu SS15 - A stunning collection. Modern, clean, elegant and soft. This collection to me showcases modern fashion but with classic ideas. Minimal with clean lines, mixtures of prints and textures with drapery, ease and a looser silhouette being key. A beautiful collection.

06/09/14 - Alexander Wang SS15 - Ultra modern with interesting cuts, lines and prints. With the world moving forward so fast and the future becoming ever more realistic Alexander Wang SS15 showcased looks that brought fashion into the modern age. Splashes of colour amongst black and white make for a fun, quite masculine and futuristic but wearable collection. Amazing!

07/09/14 - Diane Von Frustenburg SS15 - A very colourful, fun and lively collection. Gingham, floral, stripes and more prints combined in the collection. Feminine and innocent with a hint of sexy. A great collection. The looks showcased the female form and celebrated being girly and fun with fashion. Kendall Jenner also walked the runway fort he designer!

08/09/14 - Carolina Herrera SS15 - For this collection prints focused on two things. The ultra modern, clean shapes and gradients that can be created on computers and classic floral shapes and colours. Two contradicting concepts mashed together to create intriguing prints for Carolina Herrera's show. Clean and modern this was a lovely show. Elegant, feminine and sophisticated. All what I'd expect from the designer.

09/09/14 - Rodarte SS15 - When I think of this collection three words come to mind. Eclectic, soft and utility. This collection was a mix of utility jackets, drapery and a mix and match of prints, colours and textures. Navy, khaki and white were the main feature colours. Wow!

10/09/14 - Oscar De La Renta SS15 - Wow. Bright, feminine, classic and pretty. This collection showcased what the designer is known for. Being classic and feminine. Pinks, whites, lace, sheer and floral all combined to make a collection that is a must see. These are pieces worth saving up for ladies!

11/09/14 - J.Mendel SS15 - Clean, modern, panels, multicolour fur and drapery. Stunning and fun collection. I haven't viewed many collections by this designer before however that has changed as I can't wait to see what this designer will bring next season.

I think its fair to say that New York Fashion Week brought us amazing fashion for 8 full days! Wow! Stunning collections! What was your favourite collection from NYFW? Let me know! Come back next time to see what collection I  thought should've had a little longer on the drawing board! Follow the blog to keep up to date on the latest posts and more! Thank you! Remember to "Always Be Classic"!
