The best moment's from NYFW Fall 18
Just incase you couldn't be there, we chose the best moment's of NYFW Fall 2018.
1. Zimmermann's 'UNBRIDLED' range
Not only are we absolutely obsessed with Zimmermann's Fall '18 range, but we are also thrilled for this moment to be Grace Simmons' major come back, finally. The red head Brisbane born model was adorned head to toe in Nicky Zimmermann's newest range, titled 'Unbridled'. The range references romantic and free-spirited equestrians of the Victorian era, with some ‘80s style from the designer's youth thrown in too. In addition to the Victorian romantic feel, themes of the American West seeped into Zimmermann’s latest collection, predominantly visible in the studded cowboy boots, belted saddle pouches, and O’Keeffe-ian wide-brim black hats tied around some of the models’ shoulders. Yes please!
2. Tom Ford's bold message of female empowerment
Following the sexual harassment outrage within the fashion industry as of late, and the rising awareness of the #MeToo campaign worldwide, Tom Ford has used his Fall 2018 collection as a platform of female empowerment. This season the Tom Ford woman is an alley cat, a superwoman with a 'Pussy Power' purse. Power to the pussy!
3. Christian Siriano's celebration of all body forms, and 10 years in the business
Fall 2018 saw Christian Siriano celebrate 10 years since his 2008 debut collection at New York Fashion Week, following his successful reality show stint on Project Runway. Siriano is known for being ahead of the curve when it comes to body-positive fashion, so it is no surprise that he couldn’t resist adding in a few empowering messages into the mix to mark the occasion. His People are People mantra found its way onto tote bags, as it was also displayed by casting a range of ages, body types, and backgrounds. Sending actress Selma Blair down the runway in a catsuit covered in script, he nodded to Time’s Up. “She was one of the first women to come forward during the #MeToo movement and I felt like was important to put her in a powerful look that she felt amazing in," says Siriano.
4. Alice McCall's NYFW debut
Alice McCall presented her Fall 2018 collection for the first time ever at New York Fashion Week, and it's clear the future is bright for the Australian designer. "I feel ready to go," said McCall before the show. "I'm excited and I think it's going to be a stepping stone to grow the brand, whenever I’m designing for the runway, I turn it up a notch," said the designer. "There are a little bit of the late ’70s, early ’80s vibe -- think a little Studio 54. I’m not anchored by one inspiration at the end of the day. It’s current and it’s always Alice McCall."
5. Jeremy Scott and his bright haired muses
Jeremy Scott is always a highlight for us, and this season he has The Fifth Element fever. Over 20 years since the release of Luc Besson’s cult classic, the designer sent an army of Leelo look-alikes down the runway clad in kaleidoscopic prints, sweatpants with bondage-style straps, and furry thigh-high moon boots. Paying homage to the sci-fi film’s dauntless heroine played by Milla Jovovich, and her pièce de résistance atomic orange bob, hairstylist Eugene Souleiman created Manic Panic, micro-fringed wigs in the famous citrus shade, as well as in sky blue, cotton candy pink, mint green, and lemon yellow.
London Fashion Week is up next, stay tuned.
