This New York Fashion Week we saw some astounding fall designs and collections by Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, Alexandra O’Neill of Markarian and other renowned designers. The fashion week chose the virtual platform where many upcoming and eminent designers debuted their fall/winter collections through live streams, look books, and other digital means, with the exception of a socially distant runway show held by Jason Wu and Rebecca Minkoff.
Here is a sneak peek into the exclusive designs that caught our eyes:
A love letter to New York city -a presentation of black, red, white, and vibrant pink, Prabal Gurung played with bodega rose motif on the high-octave cocktail dresses, voluminous and vintage evening gowns, as well as sleek blazers for his pre-fall and fall collection of 2021. “The collection is a celebration of the exuberance of courage and perseverance.”, he added.
For his second contemporary collection show, Wu’s theme was Americana, inspired by the 1950-s general market where he brought food and fashion together. Among the crates of fresh fruits or colorful flowers and coca-cola archives, the collection focused on outerwear like fluid topcoats, quilted jackets, and trench coats with turtlenecks or dresses beneath.
Truly minimalist in approach, Rosetta Getty’s fall collection showcased the all too cool-but-casual chic hoodies, poplin stripped shirt dresses, maxi skirts, and turtleneck dresses.
Titled “Ode to Hope”, the prime focus was on the knitwear curve on Victor Glemaud’s fall ’21 collection. We saw innovative knitwear techniques with cotton cashmere and merino wool. Designs like, a patchwork knit jacquard designed as a single piece, a knit pinstripe fabricated in cotton cashmere, and a rayon stripe – all emphasized the creativity that went behind his knitwear collection.
For her fall ‘21 collection, Anna Sui played with escapism and fantasy as she went for Jane Birkin’s eclectic style in the 1968 film Wonderwall and The Beatles’ Psychedelic Apple Boutique. The collection consisted of her signature style of chiffon tea dresses, faux-fur leopard coats, and floral prints and laceworks.
