With New York Fashion Week coming to a close, we’re sharing a few more highlights from the Fall/Winter 2018 runway shows, presentations, and appointments.
Daniel King shot Zac Posen’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection, modeled by Katie Holmes, the actress and dear friend of Posen’s. The shoot took place over two days at the House of Z studio, celebrating their friendship and her understanding of the designs and multi-faceted nature of the collection. The collection encapsulates Posen’s dedication to the empowerment of women and his continuation of American glamour.
Tadashi Shoji debuted its Fall/Winter 18 Collection, inspired by women who enchant their life with sensuality, color and a joie de vivre. Between strength and grace, the collection is minimalist but dazzling, a vision of modern femininity. Celebrating a woman’s spirit, the collection so eloquently captured statuesque silhouettes of grace and beauty.
Pamella Roland’s Fall/Winter 2018 runway show, inspired by the royal jewels, history and architecture of Prague, accentuated the feminine silhouette. The jewel tones of the collection in ruby, amethyst, sapphire, and emerald are the focus of this collection, with ornate details such as metallic gold threadwork, sequins, pearls, and feathers. Taking their signature sleek style and adding tulle, the collection creatively manipulated the fabric to obtain dramatic silhouettes.
Kate Spade presented its Fall/Winter 2018 collection while celebrating a 25 year anniversary. With attendees Isla Fisher, Lucy Hale, and Tess Holliday, the presentation transformed New York City’s historic Masonic Hall into “a little bit country.” Marking their 25th anniversary, the brand is taking on a yearlong road trip across America. With prairie influences the collection takes a sparkling take on Nashville in muted tones and classic Kate Spade silhouettes.
Concept Korea showcased two of South Korea’s promising design talents this fashion week: LIE by Chung Chung Lee and GREEDILOUS by Younhee Park. LIE tackled the devastations of global warming through an activist approach to their designs, bringing awareness to the collapse of unity in our eco-systems. GREEDILOUS, inspired by Marie Antoinette’s romantic style, captured extreme glamour and nature’s patterns to reinterpret glamour.
KUHO’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection was inspired by KUHO’s belief that taking time to walk is essential to the 21st century person. Set on an imaginary outdoor trail, the show featured one-tone energetic color schemes inspired by spring. With sport-luxe silhouettes, KUHO expressed moments in a day through the outdoors with motifs of dancing trees and flowers.
