The New York Fashion Week is one of the most important fashion events of the world. For a few weeks in the beginning, the time and place of the meeting have been the subject of discussion. It was also the debut anniversary of some of the designers who were showcased on the runway. There has been a constant struggle between the old school designs and the trendy styles of the present day among the talented designers.
Designers of the week
Stuart Vever, who has been associated with Coach for a decade, has presented a collection of smart suits and translucent knitwear as part of his New York Fashion Week presentation. There was also an appearance by Phillip Lim who made a comeback after a four-year absence. After a hiatus of one year, Rio Uribe is going to present his collection of the revolutionary brand, Gypsy Sport.
A luxury womenswear brand named after the American designer Christian Siriano has celebrated its fifteenth anniversary. Ralph Lauren had re-debuted its brand on top of the New York Fashion Week with their dazzling western vibe collection. The brand had been away from the ramp since the year 2019. Racheal Comey also presented her collection of effortless clothing after her disappearance of two years. She had wanted to create a persona of strong, independent and confident individuals through her designs.
The creative director of the brand, Peter Do showcased his first collection in this fashion season. He is a young designer tasked to bring about his creativity to match up to his peers. A talented craftsman, which is evident from his sharp cutting technique on the suits and the draping of the minis.
The Helmut Lang 2024 New York Fashion Week collection was the first stride towards a new period. Peter’s designs paid a tribute to the cultural city, New York as well as to the creator of the brand, Helmut Lang. The brand happened to be a popular name during the 1990s and 2000s for its flattering silhouettes designed for the small children.
Advancing towards the future
Fashion enthusiasts got to experience the best of the historical fashion moments along with the contemporary trends. There were trials and errors of the previous seasons, through which the designers tried to move away from the retro style and now, they have managed to do so.
Designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of the brand Proenza Schouler have re-invented their brand logo. They had released their New York Fashion Week collection featuring elegant suits and skirts, thong heels with tights.
The need for inclusivity in womenswear is a need of the hour. Fashioners like Comey and Batsheva Hay have revolutionized the wardrobe of the women for their personal and professional life through their New York Fashion Week collection. Hillary Taymour of the label Collina Strada had also proved that the past, present and future can exist side-by-side. She inspired the audience to learn from their past mistakes, joke about the current scenario and learn to challenge the future.
Khaite’s long blazers and oversized jackets are the new luxury pieces to look forward to. Meanwhile Eckhaus Latta had redefined the athleisure and sportswear market of the industry. The previous fashion had the designers in its firm hold. They were trying to fit themselves according to the typical standards.
With time, these groups of talented individuals have managed to find their way. The classic, elegant and minimalist aesthetics would take time to cross over the consumer market. While the designers took time to develop their individual outlook, they managed to create their niche after honouring their past designs.
