NY Fashion Week

1When Fashion Week is around, everyone knows about it. We all hear about the Mercedes- Benz Building and the famous “tents” with booming music and colorful flashy lights. Although we cannot physically attend the shows starring well-known fashion designers and celebrities, social media overwhelms us with anticipation and curiosity through little snapshots. Fashion week starts with New York and if you haven’t had the time to take a sneak peek at the show, here is a little ‘lookbook’ composed of breathtaking designs.

For those of you who are not aware of what fashion week really is, think of it as an fashion art exhibit. Instead of art, fashion designers present their masterpieces for the upcoming season. There are two fashion weeks per year that are hosted in  four big cities: New York, London, Paris, Milan. Each city gets one week, adding up to a month of Fashion Week. Famous celebrities and influential people such as bloggers and people who work in the fashion industry attend these 20-40 minute fashion shows each day to take a look at the crystal ball that depict upcoming fashion trends.

Luxury brands  come up with the craziest designs. Of course, they are not the go-to for work or a simple dinner, but these are just an extravagant way of introducing some new trends from the designers. They are not your expensive Sunday Church dress- they are art created for a runway.

Marc Jacobs by Marc Jacobs

Cropped Bomber Jacket : whether it’s the bright orange or the intricate details of sparkles, for sure this jacket alone stands out.

2Silk+velvet: Cultural aspect is important in fashion. With this being said, who cannot deny the natural beauty that emits from this silk dress?

3Ralph Lauren- There’s a lot going on in this dress but the main focus is the fringes that tassels every step.

4Rodarte – Make any pair of pants stylish with this studded belt.

5Coach

Don’t be deceived by the floral pattern on the dress because the black roses, the gothic lace, and creepers that are pierced with sharp studs say something else about the look.

6Don’t throw away your old clothes and shoes because trends come back. Creepers reappeared in the fashion show and so did the sheer dress.

7Tommy Hilfiger

Let’s set aside Calvin Klein and Adidas for a while because Tommy Hilfiger is the trend now. Unlike most of the clothes from well-known brands, Tommy Hilfiger has many street style clothing that are bound to become viral. They are stylish but also perfect for a casual, everyday wear.

If you weren’t satisfied from any of these, you will be mesmerized by Marchesa’s looks.
