With each passing day, the New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 is turning out to be more exciting. Fresh designs, intricate embellishments and spectacular settings made Day 3 and 4 equally exciting. Not to mention, some of the biggest names in the industry revealed their spring collection in these couple of days. Here’s a round-up of the best shows from Day 3 & 4.
One of the biggest shows on Day 3 of the fashion week was that of Alexander Wang’s. As this was the designer’s 10thwork anniversary, he went back to his roots and displayed creations that resembled his earliest days in the industry. We got to see a lot of those slouchy, off-duty and athleisure garments that have become associated with his name. On the front row, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, and Kanye West were spotted.
The Monique Lhuillier collection was inspired by modern art and thus we got to see a lot of colors on the runway. There was a stream of emerald green, fushia, cobalt on display while flat sandals with multi-colored tassels were worn by many of the models walking the runway. The front row attendees of Lhuillier’s show were Ashley Madekwe, Mary Alice Stephenson, Bella Throne and Jamie Chung.
The biggest highlight of Diane von Furstenberg’s show at the New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 was not the designs but the models! The designer managed quite a coup as she got the most sought-after young faces to walk in her creations. The likes of Kendall Jenner, KarlieKloss, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Jourdan Dunn, Binx Walton, Lindsey Wixson, Molly Bair, Lily Aldridge and Adriana Lima all sashayed down the runway. As regards the designs,Furstenberg displayed a lot of flowing silk jumpsuit, billowy blouses, drawstring-waist pants, dresses and skirts.
Mara Hoffman’s spring collection had the quintessential colorful feel to it. The designer made ample use of nature’s symbolism, such as cloudy blue skies, rainbows, birds, stars etc. We got to see summer linen dresses with peekaboo details, tunics, jumpsuits, beach wear cover-ups and culottes.
Prabal Gurung’sshow took the audience to his homeland, Nepal, which is still recoveringfrom the devastating earthquake that shook the small nation a few months back. The show starts with the chanting of traditional prayer by a group of monks, which was soon followed by models walking the runway in palettes of goldenrod, rose, and rusty orange – shades that, according to Gurung, recalled the mountain sunsets in Nepal.Gurung used these colors in chiffon separates and gowns with long trains.
