READY TO WEAR
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!
