New York Fashion Week 2017 has officially started and the runways are burning up with amazing fall fashions!! Over the next few days I will be reporting on my favorite shows that I attended, along with my NYFW Style Diary! 🙂
Day one of Fashion Week was a bummer for me because I was not feeling well and had to miss all five of my shows for the day (Booo!). Although I was not able to make it to the shows, I tuned into the livestream and social media channels of each designer to get a full peek at the Fall/Winter 2017 looks. One of the shows that I was able to livestream was Nicholas K., and to say that I was blown away would be an understatement!
I am a 90’s baby and I absolutely love everything about that decade! From the fashion, music, and television shows, it was such a memorable era! Nicholas K recognized this as well and payed homage to the 90’s in their Fall/Winter 2017 collection! However, this collection embraced the ”Promising Communal Diversity and Unity” that the 90’s brought through the release of Nelson Mandela, the climax of Hip Hop, and political militancy and experimentalism. It was truly a decade that brought diverse widespread cultural acceptance. This was interpreted on the runway through an array of models of many ethnicities (which I loved!). The models donned oversized foil leather jackets with berets, silk velvet jackets with matching “MC Hammer” style pants, and off the shoulder wrap tops with dresses. Accessorizing these looks were a single oversized earring, a nose ring, and black flat top sunglasses. The collection was a mixture of urban edge, care-free chic, and sophisticated beauty. With all of the antics going on in the world, I truly appreciate when a designer steps up and takes a stand for unity and togetherness. This collection is an example of inclusion, and has an appreciation of a amazing time in history that brought us all together! LOVE! 🙂
