Being in the fashion industry, fashion week is an extremely busy, exciting and important time of the year. It comes around twice a year for the women’s collections: February for the Autumn / Winter collections and September for the Spring / Summer collections. Men’s fashion weeks usually take place in January and again in June, but aren’t as much of a big deal as the women’s shows.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with fashion weeks, they are influential industry events that take place in the four major fashion capitals of the world: New York, London, Paris and Milan. Other cities around the world do host fashion weeks as well, but they aren’t as publicised.
Anyway, enough of the facts, I’m here to show you my favourite bits so far from New York Fashion Week which is currently taking place as I type this.
- Zimmerman: Victorian Beauty
I love everything about this collection! How beautiful are those materials? And the colour palette is just perfect! I’m going to be on the hunt for a high street version of these looks later on in the year.
2. 3.1 Phillip Lim: Feminine & Layered
Even though I can’t see myself wearing these overly feminine pieces, I really love what the designer has done here with the use of fabrics and layering. It’s very bohemian.
3. Derek Lam:
Out of all the shows I’ve seen so far this is definitely my fave. I wouldn’t usually go to Derek Lam for style inspiration, but this collection is so me! I love the formal but comfy feel to it and the graphic lines throughout.
Let me know what you think to the collections in the comments below.
