It’s that time of year again where designers and models alike endure in a crazy week of absolute fashion madness otherwise known as New York Fashion Week (NYFW for short). What is NYFW you may ask? NYFW is a semi-annual series of events that take place in February and September of each year where international fashion designers showcase their collections to the public, press and most importantly the buyers! NYFW is one of four major fashion weeks in the world, alongside London, Milan and Paris.
I’d like to start my series of NYFW blogs with one of my favourite designers, Jeremy Scott. He is an American designer and the creative director of the fashion house ‘Moschino’. His collections are always very colourful and eclectic and he is known as fashion’s equivalent of Andy Warhol! Every piece he makes is an impactful piece which I feel most times tends to bring out the inner child in all of us! This A/W (Autumn/Winter) ready to wear collection features lots of bright reds, pinks, purples and blues and well as lots of gold embellishments. The collections gives off somewhat of a 70’s meets cartoon world paying tribute to American culture. Feather trimmed jackets and velvet suits are a common theme throughout the show as well as embroidered leather jackets, slip dresses, t-shirts and very sparkly shoes. Artistic direction is evident throughout the collection with various headpieces incorporated into the collection as well as custom Jeremy Scott old-fashioned lunch boxes. In full Jeremy Scott style, this show is a spectacular that meets halfway between art and humour. Provided below is a link to the full show!
