The Best of NYFW

The Best of NYFW

| On 25, Feb 2015

It’s that time of year again. The newest designs are taking to the runway to be loved and scrutinised by the rest of the world. Starting in the big apple, New York City.

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is just the beginning of the plethora of fashion shows that take place across the world this month. New York City, however, being the outrageously exquisite city that it is, hosts the Beyonce of fashion weeks. The one we all wish we were invited to.

The week has seen some beauty and some heinousness, but the innovation that has come out of some of the top designers, including some Australian favourites, has been magical. This made for a week of watching the shows’ live broadcasts at obscene times of the night.

Fashion week is primarily focused on the release of new collections, although the week long event encompasses so much more. From street style and Twitter trends to celebrity guests aiming to look as outrageous as some of the fashion on the runway, the week oozes fun. Here are my top three (overall) moments of the week:

1. Zimmermann

The standout show of the week (and not being biased towards my Australian role models) but they truly executed an amazing Fall 15 show. This collection was not the typical Zimmermann aesthetic, but rather contained standout aqua and maroon hues with a huge 70’s feel to the runway. There was a lot of turtlenecks and a lot of flared pants, and I enjoyed every second of it.

2. Zac Posen × Naomi Campbell

Zac Posen’s incredible runway presentation at Grand Central Station (!!!) was confusing as to whether it was a celebrity gala, or whether his collection was being debuted. The likes of Rhianna and Katie Holmes graced his front row, but they were truly outshone by Naomi Campbell closing his collection in a pink glitter ball gown. It was a spectacular moment where it suddenly felt like Naomi Campbell was the ‘Good Witch from the East’.

3. Tommy Hilfiger Catwalk

Never before have I been so impressed with a set of a fashion runway. Last year we had Karl Lagerfield set the Chanel show in a Grocery Store, but for Tommy Hilfiger’s 30 years, the set was even more impressive. An American football field! Of course the fashion was undoubtedly just as amazing as ever, but what took his show to the next level was the innovation of his catwalk. The collection contained oversized sweaters with thick tights and collegiate-style scarves, and leather football jerseys worn with sky-high heeled winter boots. This was my kind of Superbowl.
