For a long time, Marc Jacobs was the most overrated designer in American fashion.
It was a love letter to all the women with personal style; unfortunately, he couldn’t capture that spirit.
Dresses were marbled and sculpted like elaborate topiaries.
The Calvin Klein NYFW 2018 show at the American Stock Exchange showed us real America.
Sometimes, you have to push beyond the boundaries to make a point.
You had me at yacht print.
An Israeli fashion house took a cue from Women of the Wall and created a collection based on appropriated men’s clothing.
Marc Jacobs has taken a step back in time with his spring 2013 clothing collection, recently showcased at Fashion Week in New York. The designer’s creations encapsulated the British Mod look of the 1960s with monochrome prints and polka dots taking over the runway. The midriff was also key to the designs with see-through shirts over bras and pencil skirts with short tops on display. Singer Ricky Martin, currently starring in the Broadway musical revival of Evita, was in the front row for the catwalk show. Ricky Martin: “I’m loving New York. I’ve been here now for a year and I wanted to feel what’s going on (with fashion week). I really wanted to feel what’s going on and I think this was the best show to come to - to start at least. Experiencing the New York fashion week.” Marc Jacobs is one of the globe’s biggest fashion labels. In 2002 the designer got his very own star on the Fashion Walk of Fame in New York’s Garment District.
New York Fashion Week has begun and the hottest styles are showing some sporty inspiration, streamlined edges and subtle colours. Four of the collections on the first day were “livestreamed” to the digital screens in Times Square, which is a first for the fashion show, to give New Yorkers and tourists alike, a taste of the glamour. After the day’s runway shows, the fashionistas got set for Fashion’s Night Out, a bit of celebrity spotting, music, giveaways and maybe even some shopping. Kim Kardashian was there promoting her new fragrance, as well as other big names such as Nicole Richie, and rapper Pharrell. New York Fashion Week, which was first held in 1943 when designers couldn’t make it to Paris during WWII, is now one of the major fashion weeks along with London, Paris, and Milan.
