Bella Hadid – Moschino SS/18

WHAT A COLLECTION! Jeremy Scott WOW’s us once again at Milan Fashion Week! Biker ballerinas were Scott’s story on the runway: leather jackets, satin bustiers, tulle tutus, and fishnets in a couple dozen variations, with some DIY tees thrown into the mix. The show featured a bevy of top models including Kaia Gerber, Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, Grace Elizabeth, Taylor Hill, Joan Smalls, Elsa Hosk and Mayowa Nicholas.

He certainly didn’t fail to put smiles on people’s faces, especially with a surprise finale section of dresses that recast his models not as butch femmes and tough chicks, but as flowers.

Tom Ford SS/18

And just like that … it’s NEW YORK FASHION WEEK! We’re back baby! Tom Ford knows how to make an entrance. At his return to New York Fashion Week, the designer transformed the Park Avenue Armory into a luxurious space to showcase his glamorous, sharp, and sexy Spring 2018 collection. There was a star studded front row of celebrities and models among the likes of Kim Kardashian, Doutzen Kroes, Cindy Crawford, Gwendoline Christie, Naomi Campbell and Cardi B.

Binx Walton gave the all important first AND last impression … The American model got the top honour of both opening and closing Tom Ford’s show this season. At the start, she emerged to the tune of David Bowie’s “Fame” in a golden shorts-suit with a chain mail top and pink stilettos, and she closed the show in a languid gown with sequin sleeves.

The clear feel of the collection was return to glamour, meets the 90’s. Ford’s jackets were confident, expertly cut and paired with a plunge-front or backless jumpsuits. This season recaptured 90’s glam with the hip-flashing maillots he paired with low-slung pants. Cut-out jersey column dress and crystalized T-shirts stood out to me in the collection. There was day-wear and evening-wear, making it a very versatile collection. Check out some of the looks below!!

MFW: Max Mara A/W17

Max Mara is an Italian fashion house. It markets up-market ready-to-wear clothing. Max Mara is known for elegant outerwear and fur. Warm winter coats were the heart and soul of this collection, with many of the models draped in them. A trend persistent throughout the collection was the knit trim on the coats making some of the models almost look like teddy bears walking down the runway. This show hit the mark when it came to accessories, with mittens to go with each look that showcased a coat, as well as knit trimmed tote bags.

What I admire about Max Mara, is that they stick to what they do best, which is extravagant outerwear and luxurious furs, allowing them to produce a solid collection season after season. Supermodel Natasha Poly opened the show, followed by a bevy of supers and baby supers, including 19 year old hijab-wearing model Halima Aden, a first for the fashion house. Below are some of the looks to show the different colour themes throughout the collection, as well as the full show!

NYFW: Jeremy Scott A/W 2017

Take a look at Jeremy Scott’s NYFW AW17 Collection! It’s sure to bring out your inner child!

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!
