Sadly, Its the finale day of New York fashion week, but of course, we’re excited to report on some of the best shows and events that took place this season.
Fashion and Politics On The Runways
Normally, fashion week is all about stylish chaos, but this February, the energy, creativity and experience was completely amplified, surpassing the expectations of many. Designers, like Christian Siriano, and Micheal Kors, weren’t afraid to embrace diversity of size and race on the runways. Other designers, like Prabal Gurung took an even more political route, showcasing pieces with messages that were very reminiscent of the women’s march, pushing for equality and promoting feminism.
A few designers took a more routine approach to their fashion presentations. Designer, Irina Vitjaz at her second season show, during fashion week, displayed a delicate and ethereal collection, with classic silhouttes that flowed across the runway like a gentle water color painting in motion. Similar to Irinia’s show, the concept of couture and traditional formal wear elements were also visible in designer collections for Marchesa and Badgley Mischka.
Fashion X Technology
The role of fashion does not just simply apply to only style and trends – fashion is innovation. During this fashion week, on Tuesday, FTL Moda, The Shows, sponsored by Samsung, showed the intersection of fashion and tech, presenting “the first ever, all digital fashion presentation”. The event displayed a series of four rooms, one including a virtual runway show of each designer’s collection – in which were all pre-recored. On each devise you could navigate which shows you wanted to view, you could also favorite different looks with just a light tap on the side pad, and slighty swipe to view the next look. It was a fun and inventive look into how fashion shows will be presented in the near future.
