NYFW Fall 2018 Shows

It was fun for a week to take a break from the hustle of styling, to attend New York Fashion Week, to dress up, and to catch up with those people in the industry whom I don't regularly see. Dressing up is so much fun. However, sometimes I feel what is more important than seeing the shows is answering my own question: What should I wear? And, of course, making sure to take 50 photo shots to get 1 great picture to post on Social Media. That beautiful picture captures the look of fashion week for that day. After each day of preparing my look and, despite traveling throughout the town to get to each show, the shows were energizing and exciting as I observed the new trends. 
I am going to highlight a few shows in the spirit of Jejune Magazine by pointing out their social relevant theme (eco-friendly, body positive, and somewhat political). And, then I will recap upcoming trends.

Christian Siriano

Christian Siriano's show was filled with body positivity.  He opened the show with plus model, Ashley Graham and the whole show was combined with plus and regular model sized dresses throughout the show.  This event marked the 10th anniversary of Christian showcasing his collections.  At the Grand Lodge in the afternoon, actress, Meg Ryan, rapper Cardi B, and trans activist Laverne Cox all sat in the front row. Christians collection was ladylike silhouettes with red carpet and old Hollywood glamour intertwined.  He used shimmery and sheer fabrics, as well as velvet.  He added an element of sex appeal with stiletto over the knee boots and high slits in the dresses or skirts.  Christian spoke after the show: “I’m proud to celebrate people from all walks of life on the runway and bring the world of glamour back.”

David Hart’s Men’s collection stepped away from traditional suits in bold colors but was instead layered polos, lots of turtleneck layering, tweed trousers.  A French themed show with berets, ascots, red and white polos, eiffel tower sweaters, which was to symbolize some designers left NYC to show in Paris this season.  And, his “Ugly American” button to defer that Americans don’t try to speak French in Paris. More as if poking fun of it.
