Michelle Helene was one of the first presentations that kicked off my SS17 Fashion Week experience, and lets just say it left me in a groovy mood! 🙂
From bell bottoms and afros, to platforms and banana button-ups, this casual-chic collection definitely placed me in a stylish scene from “That 70’s Show”. Michelle was inspired by the clothing and political message from the 70’s and decided to combine flirty and feminine with sporty elements throughout the collection. She also added touches of hand-woven details in her tunics.
What I loved most about this collection was the diversity of models used to interpret the designers vision. It was cool to see an Asian model with an Afro, and a mixed race model donning a disco look complete with a head wrap. I also loved the modern styling and details in each look. I felt as if each look could easily be worn from the presentation into NYC streets….by me! 🙂
Overall, the Michelle Helene SS17 collection started my Fashion Week experience off on a psychedelic platform foot that I loved!
Take a look at my favorites from the collection below!
Special thanks to EB Consults for having me!
