I once again had the extreme pleasure of attending the Flying Solo shows for NYFW. I attended both the ready-to-wear and couture shows and was duly impressed by both presentations. In an age of a disruptive industry, what some are referring to the retail apocalypse and the rise of online streaming, and very crowded and competitive space Flying Solo seeks to unite fashion, support up and coming designers and pay homage to the city that has always been at the heart of fashion. Tom Ford may have snubbed his nose at New York, and other well known brands my only show overseas but Flying Solo is committed to the New York fashion scene and to that end plans on opening two additional locations in addition to their recently expanded store front on West Broadway in Soho.
I was lucky enough to attend the Blancore show for Fall 2020 and it was truly a breath of fresh air. With it’s minimalist approach and focus on shape and form the brand offers the wearer an independent expression of modern day attire. And the lineup for Fall 2020 working within this aesthetic was a fete of the idea of function and form coming together in a playful expression of elegance and grace.
Fashion Week here in New York is in full swing and I am sharing the next installment of my Paris SS2020 street style photos. I thought I was close to the finish line and then I realized, oh god there is another folder. Well at least I was productive this past season and now I am busy shooting NYFW A/W2020 street style, whew. Many of these shots were taken as usual outside the Hotel De Tokyo.
Happy Friday everyone on the eve of New York Fashion Week. Today I am sharing a newer brand that is becoming quite the darling of the influencer social media scene. Ronny Kobo was founded in 2009 by Ronny Kobo after working for years as an accessories designer. And the brand really seems to have it’s finger on the pulse of what is happening not only in the fashion industry itself, but also what is happening on the streets, and in the online world of influence.
Well Fashion Week starts this week and yes I still have more photos from Paris Fashion Week to post. But when you take over two thousand photos you have to distribute them over time, oui? These shots were take outside the Palais de Tokyo and I can not remember what show this was. I shot so many photos and was running around non stop, but I should have shot the info outside the venue so I would remember, a pro tip I ignored. Anyway, these are some off the models I snapped after the show. The hair and makeup are quite striking which surprises me that I can not find any information online regarding this show. At any rate I loved shooting these models. It was great to capture them in the frenzy that is Fashion Week. I may have been tired, and I may have been forgetful, but for all the hard work and exhaustion I would not trade it in for the comfort of sitting back and watching it all unfold from my computer.
