NYFW Diary | Day 3
Ahh welcome to day #3 of New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016! Phew, they really do know how to give an event a super long name. Here we are with the 3rd instalment of my NYFW Diary! Not only was my outfit on the 3rd day of New York Fashion Week one of my favorites but the day itself was pure magic. We started off the day at the at the Ohlin/D Presentation before heading to Skylight at Moynihan Station for the Tao Ray Wang Fall 2016 Runway Show. Next there was a quick moment for lunch and window shopping before the Lie Sang bong and Leanne Marshall Runway Shows. Woop were the days ever full. Okay then without further ado let’s get started!
Tao Ray Wang | Fall 2016 Runway Show
This collection by TaoRay Wang was entitled British Heritage with the designer having been inspired by Victorian Fashion for the runway show. To show this the designer implemented black lace trim and panels, lace bandeaus and even fur neck warmers. With excellent tailoring and understated statement coats there was something for every business savvy yet impeccably chic woman on the runway. I think this collection was a great nod to menswear for women in a very refreshing way.
Lie Sang bong | Fall 2016 Runway Show
A new designer to me, Lie Sang Bong was inspired by the masculinity of retro military garments and also took a nod along with Tao Ray Wang to Victorian Fashion ideals. The collection was full of color, jewel tones of blue and purples to be specific for a more lavish and silky feel. Even though there were so many larger ideas in this collection the true beauty and essence was all in the details. The delicate lacework on the silk blouses and billowy oversized sleeves to name a few or even the mixing of textures and colors.
Zang Toi | Fall 2016 Runway Show
This collection by Zang Toi was inspired by one of all of our favorite things. The designer had apres ski in the French Alps in mind whilst designing this collection. The show was full of layered knits, sweaters, vest and coats. It included the occasional fur and even a state red fur shawl that is to die for and enough sequins to satisfy the likes of me. Even with all of that the designer said that this season was to be understated for his New York Fashion Week show.
Ohlin/D | FW16 Presentation
Designers Jacob Park and Anne Deane of Ohlin/D showed their 16 look presentation at Pier 59 for New York Fashion Week. The designers went for a pastel color palette which is quite intriguing and sets them apart from the usual fall/winter color palette. Although the collection was full of babydoll dresses, pastel pinks and even some little pom poms the centerpiece of the presentation happened to be a collaboration with artist, sculptor and furniture designer Sam Stewart. Bringing it all together for a vibe described as Future Little Bo Peep.
