Our 5 Favorite Inspirations From New York Fashion Week 2015
Now that the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City (#NYFW) has taken down their elaborate runways and fashion connoisseurs have jetted back home, let’s take a look back at several moments that gave us so much life this year:
Naomi Campbell slaying in Zac Posen. Naomi Campbell is the undisputed veteran of the runway and she hasn’t looked any better as she did during NYFW at the Zac Posen Fall/Winter runway show. She walked down the runway with designer Zac Posen in a gorgeous metallic ball gown in what appears to be Marsala, the official color of 2015. The color is especially great for Fall and Winter, and Miss Campbell reminded us that Black is Beautiful and resilient.
Designer Tracy Reese shines
Tracy Reese is one of the few African American fashion designers that have a wide following in the industry. From the Kerry Washington to First Lady Michelle Obama, Reese’s designs have graced many of our favorite public women. Her sophisticated yet approachable style has helped make her a well-known name and her collection for the Fall/Winter is sure to not disappoint. Source: @inmyfashionblog
Kanye West x Adidas = Fashion genius?
The pop culture world either loved or hated artist Kanye West’s collaboration collection with Adidas. His vision for a futuristic look met some fashion fans with hopes for wanting more, but who are we really to question his genius? With what carries the theme of “post apocalyptic sportswear,” West was proud of his creations, including his wife, Kim Kardashian, who wore a full West outfit to the showing. Way to support your man, girl; she’s better than me for wearing those outfits.
Laquan Smith sets trends for the future
Laquan Smith is not afraid to experiment with shapes, slits and fabrics. The innovative designer mixed futuristic elements with old Hollywood glamour for this year’s Fall and Winter collection. In of his photos on Instagram, he declares “high slits—very important!” Laquan Smith is known for his creative miniskirts and dresses on celebs like Rihanna and Christina Milian, so showing a little leg this Fall and Winter is on the must-watch-and-do list.
Libertine nails are a gaudy hit
Nail art is a big part of fashion, and the team at CND (Creative Nail Design, Inc.) put in reportedly 490 hours of work to ensure that the models for the brand Libertine stood out for more than just the garments. With a mix of textures and materials, they take nail art to a new level for the Fall and Winter. We’re talking chains, stones, dripped gold, and more because for a fun fashion show, gaudy is good. Take this look to your favorite nail salon and get your nails set for the season!
So whatever your style inspiration was during this NYFW, I hope that you’re not afraid of color, texture and print. Enjoy the pleasant thoughts of Fall while we try to thaw from this chilly winter.
