Although some declarations say the New York Fashion Week is dead, those two fashion weeks still impose powerful effects throughout the city. At the last fashion week, notable events have been ushered in, including Ralph Lauren’s 50th Anniversary extravaganza at Central Park, to the long-awaited return of the glamour goth label Rodarte. All above highlights have injected new blood to the Big Apple’s couturish core.
At the upcoming Fashion Week, it’s estimated that there will be new designers, parties and loads of menswear and womenswear. In addition, the fashion feast will also bring more signs of life in the semiannual fashion fun. Similar to back and forth trends, so do designers. Among those brands who missed the schedule this year, Calvin Klein is the most missed one, because of shocking departure last autumn. Victoria Beckham seems to be stayed at home after relocating there.
Even if Rodarte made an impressive comeback to New York Fashion Week in September, 2018, strutting and bewitching models will appear on catwalks and other occasions. This year, another potential absence might be a welcomed one. It’s said that underage models are banned to be hired by every company. In the request of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, designers were told hiring young models under the age of eighteen is banned. Besides, for the privacy purpose, an specific area on backstage should be reserved for models. In spite of some abnormal conditions, some familiar faces are coming back to the fashion feast this year, to compensate for their absence.
Under the helm of guest designer Shayne Oliver and editor-in-residence Isabella Burley, a long-abandoned Helmut Lang will present at the show with the help of its new curator Alix Browne. In the memory of his 35th anniversary, Elie Tahari is coming back with a collection on February 7th. It’s hopeful that the anniversary will take references to his first disco debut. Certainly, it’s sure to dazzle most people. Other homecomings include some accessories like berets, fascinators, jewellery, beads, belts and shoes. When it comes to berets, I found a extremely good websites dedicated to classic berets. No matter in summer or winter, there are some versatile, classic and minimalist leather berets, wool berets, knit berets, winter berets and the like at low prices.
Let’s get to the point. Although Rodarte snap the chance to show his collection to American masses, Mr. Ford still take advantages of themselves and be the pistol to start races down the runway. Amid many staples shows, some should not be missed, such as Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, and Carolina Herrera.
Fashion week will bring the latest trend in the following term. It’s also a great opportunity to discover would-be talents and new faces. A winner of the 2017 Vogue Fashion Fund is going to stage an feast to exhibit his new collection. I will share more fashion trends next time. Please contact us if you have any suggestion.
