I had the distant pleasure of attending Flying Solo’s second show for NYFW. They premiered last season for Fall 2019 and SS2020 was the second time they presented for NYFW. The started more or less on time, which is surprising for a fashion show and I barely made it, and scooted in the door in the nick of time. I had to work, and I even left early, but it was all I could do to make it in time. I was been invited by Viivi and I think they walked right before I arrived and featured the fun quirky tees they are known for. I did get to see them during the finale.
Fashion Month has ended and it was quite the frenzy. When isn’t it? Fashion is kind of like having a baby when your in it our like OMG this is too much. But then you soon forget and are more then ready to do it again. OK, maybe not quite, but you get the idea. I hope you enjoy my escapades and getting a glimpse of what Fashion Week is like in New York and stay tuned for Paris!
The last show I attended this NYFW was Liu Yong’s collaboration with Rishikensh. Liu Yong widely popular in China and regarded as one of the top ten designers in China this show was greatly anticipated
I am happy to share with you Chocheng’s collection for Spring/Summer 2020. While it’s early sixties retro feel was refreshingly minimalist, it was also simultaneously sumptuous.
On the third day of Fashion Week I attended two shows: Kyle Shehida and the Academy of Art University graduates for SS2020. I had to rush to make this show as the Kyle Shahida show was about forty minutes late and there was only an hour between shows.
The fabrics are moving, flowing and bright” says Kyle Richards of her debut line Kyle Shahida which debuted at NYFW SS2020. And indeed they are. The collection was a stunner of a debut and it was obvious a lot hard work and talent went into the looks.
For my second day of Fashion Week one of the shows I attended was Oxford Fashion Studio’s Show I for SS2020. It was a surprisingly brisk day for early September and show was held at Pier 59 Studios. The show featured eight rising designers. The show was filled to capacity and you could sense the excitement.
The third show I attended this Fashion Week was Elf Sack for the Nolcha Shows. A vibrant quirky brand in a similar vein as Wild Fox, only less sex and more playful. Hello Kitty meets grandma chic could aptly describe this color-saturated kaleidoscope of a collection. Illustrative patterns, cheeky cartoon characters, grungy plaids, lady-like florals and polkadots are all represented.
ICY Presents The Dynasty was the first show I attended. It was held on the evening of the 4th was a bit of a pre-Fashion Week show. Four designers presents and it was a wonderful way to kick off Fashion Week.
I will be in Paris in a few short weeks so I have Parisian brands on my mind. I hope to visit a few of my favorite shops when I am there but with all the running around with Fashion Week I am not sure I will get the chance.
Today I am sharing with you Flying Solo’s debut at NYFW last season as tonight I am attending their Fall 2019 show! Flying Solo specializes in showcasing up and coming and independent designers. They have a shop in Soho
