The last designer to walk in the main show was Lavanya Coodly. Coming from the world of science, Lavanya Coodly followed her heart, moving in to the world of fashion as a second career. Always passion about fashion and mostly self taught, and after decades of learning from experienced pattern makers, tailors and embroiders Lavanya Coodly founded her own line in 2013.

Creating clothes for all facets of women’s life: work, evening, casual, Lavanya designs clothing for the full breadth of a woman’s life. The label has recently has taken on menswear, as well as clothing for children. And with the fall collection you will indeed find something for almost any occasion.  From suit dresses for work, to smart linen slacks, to cocktail dresses and black tie gowns this lineup covers it all. Although evening wear is where Lavanya Coodly really shines. And a stand our for me has to be the glittering white evening dress. Such a stunner.

ACID NYC was the second to walk in the main show. This is their third season walking for Nolcha. Founded by Evelyn Luna and Scott Chester ACID NYC is a culmination of years of varied artistic and creative backgrounds and the coming together of two supremely talented designers. Evenlyn Luna spent 13 years on DVF’s design staff going on to become Director of DVF’s textile department and textile product manager at Victoria’s Secret.

Scott Chester an industrial designer who studied at the CCS College of Automotive Design and product design at Pratt Institute opened his own studio (ACID-Arielle Chester Industrial Design) in Brooklyn, NY to design custom furniture for New York City clients.

I had the pleasure of attending their Spring show which you can read about here. Known for creating color-infused, textural garments featuring distinctive statement making prints this season was their finest yet.

The nineties are back and defiantly so—from futuristic Matrix like prints to velour track suits and punky tank girl ensembles this is the nineties done right. Track suits are having a moment, and the offerings from ACID NYC’s latest collection should please both the relax fit crowd and those who prefer their track suits a bit more close to the body.

Another vibrantly beautiful, stand-out collection from this dynamic duo

As are capped sleeved cocktail dresses and fitted tank frocks as well as traditionally cut suit dresses. The sporty chic vibe is evident, and is expressed in a two piece jogging skirt set, printed leggings, cropped tanks and a gorgeous quilted cropped bomber jacket. And the show stopper has to be the leather vest and topaz colored “chrome” belt.

The accessories this season are also note worthy—from prism printed cross body bags and clutches to frayed denim over the knee boots to cocktail purses in a silver hexagonal like print, it is all in the details. Another vibrantly beautiful, stand-out collection from this dynamic duo.  To read more about ACID NYC please visit them at Acidnyc.com

The last group to walk for Nolcha’s One’s To Watch” show was the Stevenson University Showcase. The showcase featured a collective of students who were showing their take on the LBD (little black dress). Stevenson University located in Baltimore County, Maryland offers a BA in Fashion Design and from what I saw at the show, it must be an excellent program. So for any of my readers that live in this area and are considering studying fashion design this may be a school you will want to consider.

The fourth Designer to walk for Nolcha’s One To Watch show was Chèlbè which means well dressed in Haitian. Chèlbè was founded by Diana Delva who grew up in Stamford Connecticut where she reached the height of 6’1” by age fourteen. It was struggling through this awkward age at 6’1” that inspired Diana to create Chèlbè a line of clothing specifically created for women who are 5’11” or taller. Models that stand 6’ or taller walked in the show further emphasizing the essence of the brand. Creating stylish and uncomplicated clothing for the tall woman who can often find it difficult to find fashionable clothes was a dilemma Diana understood well, and with her label Chèlbè she is meeting a need that is so often over looked.

The second show I attended which should have been my forth if not for the blizzard from hell that blew in the second day of Fashion Week was Verdad at Pier 59 Studios. This is the second season for the label to show in New York,  which was founded by veteran designer Louis Verdad. Based in Los Angeles and with a background styling and designing for such luminaries as Madonna,  Louis Verdad seeks to take his label in a new direction  to target a younger clientele with a keen sense of fashion.

The first collection which debuted last season featured a lot of denim, crisp whites, bohemian floral prints and looser, non body con fits, but with expert tailoring. The lineup for fall continues in this vein but with even more emphasis on loose cuts and draping.

For Fall 2017 VERDAD is millennial driven,sleek,relatable and above all else wearable… – Louis Verdad

You will billowing dresses, over-sized wide-leg track style pants, and flowing coats. Which is balanced by more tailored and structural pieces like the traditional cigarette cut trousers, fitted moto jackets and crop tops.

Texture also plays a role with glittery metallic knits, silk charmeuse, laminated denim, chiffon, patent leather, gabardine wool and gold lame combing in a juxtaposition of contrasting beauty. With a push pull of street-influenced everyday wear in wool plaids and leather, with water color inspired flowing prints and layers of iridescent fabrics and unexpected cuts in asymmetrical deconstructed looks; this collection embodies the downtown urban essence of the new millennial woman. And what could be better then that?

Michael Costello Fall 2017 @ NYFW

Fashion - alimackin@gmail.com - February 13, 2017

Today I am sharing with you the show I missed on Thursday thanks to the blizzard. I also did not make it in to work which some may think whooeee a day off, but I worked from home so I did not really have a day off. And I use memory intensive software which runs excruciatingly slow over a VPN. So what would normally take me two hours took six. Plus the intern could also not make it in to work so I had that much more work to due.

Then I shoveled and threw my back out. As you may have guessed by now—I was not having a good day. I considered going to the show any way and hobbling my way in, later in the evening but there were no trains running in or out of the city at the time. So sadly I accepted defeat. But needless to say I was not a happy camper.

Glamour, drama, seduction, you will find it all in Michael Costello’s collection for Fall/Winter 2017.

And after watching the show online I was madder then ever. Stupid blizzard! But wow, what a show. Glamour, drama, seduction, you will find it all in Michael Costello’s collection for Fall/Winter 2017. I have been following Michael’s career since he debuted on season 8 of Project Runway and it is truly exciting to see him come in to his own. From dressing A-list celebrities like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Caitlyn Jenner, and Rita Ora among others. It seems he has really hit his stride and this collection is one of the best yet.

A master of draping and with a keen sense of the female form, Michael Costello creates breath taking fantasies that honor the essence of fashion and femininity. Artfully crafted designs of body hugging lace, flowing mesh, and polka-dot embroidered tulle float down the runway in a whirl of gossamer delight. Plunging necklines, sheer fabrics and barely there corsets smolder in a cooly defiant sexuality.

With a palette of crystalline white, inky black and glittering gray the essential elements of color are secondary to the exquisite orchestration of texture, form and movement

Form fitting mermaid cut dresses with billowing sleeves, are the ying to the yang of flowing satin gowns. And the clingy jumpsuit is having a moment in this collection—from lace, to sequins to floor skimming fringe and sparkling capes it would be hard pressed to find the woman who would not feel like a bombshell in one of these.

With a palette of crystalline white, inky black and glittering gray the essential elements of color are secondary to the exquisite orchestration of texture, form and movement. Add seventies glam-rock inspired hair and makeup, some metallic copper pumps and sandals and you have a splendid celebration of what makes fashion so alluring . So Bravo Michael!

Satiny metallics collide with tulle trimmed ruffled sleeved frocks, zig zagging stripes intermix with dark florals and iridescent snake skin prints

Ruffles, lace and florals, a gorgeous trio of romantic details with a bohemian ethos that celebrates the free-spiritied beauty of the feminine mystic. With hemlines long and flowing and layers of gossamer like materials wrapping the body in an enchanting collaboration of contrasting textures. Satiny metallics collide with tulle trimmed ruffled sleeved frocks, zig zagging stripes intermix with dark florals and iridescent snake skin prints. Extra wide cut sheer floral trousers, lace infused peasant blouses tops, and asymmetrical one shouldered garments add to the feeling of independence and off kilter beauty. Glitter sandals and fishnet ankle socks are the sparkling finishing touches on this wonderfully charming collection. I must say I am a big fan of this collection and if I had my way I would own all of these pieces.
