The fashion month has begun and round one is dedicated to New York Fashion Week. The fashion hub of the west hosts an array of designer showcases, and the September month is dedicated to next year’s spring/summer season. This time we see a lot of throwback to the ’80s in terms of colours. Designers geared up for a fun and fashionable spring/summer season. Scroll down to check out our favourites from New York Fashion Week’s Spring/Summer 2019 edition:
If it’s not glamour-induced, it’s not Tom Ford. To kick-start NYFW, Tom Ford presented a collection that was fit for an after-hours party. Bringing back the leopard print and mixing it with fringe, the designer was successful to create a look that’s daringly fashionable. Earthy wild tones made it a more appealing line-up for the audience.
All the outfits that came down Tory Burch’s runway would be perfect for a summer holiday on a ship. The clash of prints with a break of whites was refreshing to watch on easy-breezy garments.
With this exuberant showcase, Ralph Lauren celebrated his eponymous label’s 50th anniversary, known as #RL50 on the social media spectrum. The designer took over Bethesda Terrance Tunnel in Central Park for a grand gestural show. From his glamorous silhouettes to more relaxed leisurewear, everything in the lineup was in harmony and an accolade to the five decades of craftsmanship. The kids who walked the runway were a pleasant surprise for everyone.
Unique silhouettes on an exaggerated scale—no we are not talking about an art installation but describing the silhouettes we spotted on the ramp which were designed by Christian Cowan. His creations are as unique as they come and this season was no different.
Tulle and its puffiness were displayed in its all glory at Rodarte. The garments were like something from a dream that captured a fairytale wonder where leather also had its moment. Not shying away from colours, Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy had a spectacular lineup of peculiar dresses and gowns.
Bedecked with prayer flags, the set for Prabal Gurung show had some major feels. It was a special showcase considering it was the first time he displayed his menswear line. In his collection that focused on athleisure and leisure wear, the vibrant colours of the ’80s were quite dominant.

It was designer Wes Gordon’s debut show for the label Carolina Herrera and he brought to runway all the teachings from his year and a half experience of working alongside with her. The mentor and founder, Mrs Herrera, was in the front row and must have been proud at the new direction of the label’s legacy. Keeping the playfulness of the brand intact, Gordon focused on the comfort and ease that the modern women are looking for.
Micheal Kors’ collection focused on the modern and upbeat beachwear and Pier 17 on the Seaport served as a great place to showcase this lineup. The prints, the silhouettes and even the details like fringes played to the current dynamic mood, but Micheal managed to keep the happy-meter on the higher side.
The collection that reminisced the ’80s the most was Marc Jacob and was a major throwback to the voluminous silhouettes. It seems like the mega designers of that era with his play on the textiles such as silk, sequins, tweeds, lace, and feathers.
