To all of our fashion design friends out there! This past week was a big event, September 8 – 15, New York kicked off the fashion world’s global tour of all things avant garde, couture, and on trend for many acclaimed designers’ 2017 Spring lines. This year’s shows included works from couture mainstays, large retail chains, and lots of newcomers trying to make waves in their NYFW debut.
This season’s collections saw lots of creativity from use of vibrant colors, bold prints, and mixtures of textures. The hybrid athleisure (athletics + leisure) wear has shown its longevity with a strong statement from a familiar brand having it’s fashion week debut, Under Armour.
This year was collaborations. Recording artist Rihanna joined forces with athletic apparel group Puma to create Fenty X Puma and model, Gigi Hadid, took a leading role with design house Tommy Hilfiger for TOMMYXGIGI.
With all of the excitement that engulfs New York City over the course of this week and trends to follow, a staple of the weekly semi-annual event is the interpretations of fashion expressed on the pavement runways of the city.
As published by New York Times, here are some of the best outfits outside of the main events:
