With the end of the Fashion Week season, we have rounded up three trends that are sure to bring life to your wardrobe and style you up for any occasion. Here’s part two.
Trend #2: ORNATE CONSTRUCTIONS AND EMBELLISHMENTS
Chasity Sereal’s modern Cinderella story brings flowing princess gowns to 2016. Ostrich feathers and Swarovski-beaded laces had a luxurious air fit for the contemporary woman with a royal inclination. The collection sparked by “the girl that dares to dream” is reminiscent of Sereal’s own growth and success in Fashion as a self-taught designer.
London luxury designer, Jason Boateng’s structured statement pieces in gold and emerald green were tied together with black for the elegant and confident woman that likes to look modern. His NYFW debut collection represented his British roots with architecture-inspired tailoring and the incorporation of lace, as well as detailed embroidery.
Garden of Eden, Ezé Azénabor’s colorful proposal, was a step away from her comfort zone and usual solid colors. For this collection, the Nigerian born designer chose to exhibit elaborate hand-painted and hand-beaded pieces for a woman that wants to stand out and that understands the craftsmanship that goes into Azénabor’s luxury fashion.
Studying the ambiguous relationship between body and garment, Norwegian designer Beate Godager challenged perceptions of female dress and what it means to be clothed with the juxtaposition of nudity-resembling latex pieces and dark denim ensembles.
Simone Young showcased whimsy and detail-oriented constructions. With training that includes the fine arts and even costume design, this emerging designer caters to a bold, vibrant woman. And, although Young preferred more neutral colors for these ensembles, she was not afraid to add a few pops of color here and there.
