Flying Solo RTW & Couture @NYFW Fall 2020

READY TO WEAR

COUTURE

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 an on going disruptive industry, and what some are referring to as the retail apocalypse and the rise of online streaming, and a 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 may 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. They also launched an invitation only service called The Copper which boasts such notable clients as Cardi B, Bella Hadid, Alicia Keys, Coco Rocha, Vanessa Hudgens, Leandra Medine among many others.

This warms the bottom of my fashionista heart. In a time of so much uncertainty, competitiveness and a future of an algorithm dominated society, it is refreshing to come across an old school sense of unity and support. I was lucky enough to be part the Flying Solo Fashion Week experience and also attended their pre show fitting day. Stay tuned for coverage on that in my NYFW Fall 2020 vlog. I am sharing with you some of the looks from both shows. I am sure you will be as excited as I was to attend. I hope you enjoy!

    Thanks for sharing Allie! I really like the concept of Flying Solo and I can see this model being more popular in the future considering that fashion and retail seems to be somewhat in a state of flux right now.

    I love that all of these outfits have a sense of “imbalance”, whether one side is sleeveless or one side is longer. I love some of the flare options too. Flying Solo did a great job with their lineup at the NYFW!! Glad you enjoyed your time there!

    So many cool proposals in an oversaturated fashion world, actually sometimes I feel overwhelmed by all the informations and brands and I can’t stay tuned like I used to be a few years ago.

    And it is so nice to see that your blog is a platform to share the world of new designers, Im always opened to new proposals and is cool to see the spot is not only for the biggest brands. And I like what you said about an algorithm dominated society…. that’s so true 🙁 But luckily some proposals in FW are still refreshing.

    What I liked the most about this runway is how they presented the looks in couples, matching some of the garments…. that’s really nice!

    I love their ethos and support. I actually thought such things had become extinct. I’m always so blown away by designers who snub NYFW. As someone on the other side of the globe, NYC has such an impact and character, it’s a shame to see so many forgetting its charm.

    I think that its so cool that they still try to groom and support the local New York talent! Fashion is such a huge part of self expression and for a city with as much character as New York, you definitely need to be able to see it showcased in the clothing that is out in its streets and for that to happen, you need local designs!
