Is there anything quite like the feeling of getting out of a cab in front of Lincoln Center? I love the anticipation of filing into the lobby and scanning the room. There’s always style inspiration abound—and swag to be found, of course! But the best part is when the lights finally come up on the runway. Everyone holds their breath for that first look…
Anyway, I digress. I’m just so glad I decided to start writing about fashion (did you know I thought I would go into design exclusively?) so I can be a part of this creative chaos.
The last show at Lincoln Center on Friday night was Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan. The room layout was so superior to the single-row runway set-up. People were seated in staggered triangle clusters around the room, so most actually had a front-row view.
Don’t mind me, just stalking other gals’ shoes… I had to wonder whether she was freezing though. Who wears open-toe shoes in February? If you said, “Women at NYFW”, you’d be right.
The Emerson FW14 collection had elements of controlled contour, playful texture, layered sheers, sparkle, and straight-up punk via studs and cut-out style lines. Silhouettes remained feminine while ranging from sexy and sophisticated to borderline lolita-cute. I loved it!
The sportswear was directly translatable to everyday wardrobe, while edgy, stunning gowns would definitely steal the spotlight at a winter soiree.
Check out the final walk-through below:
Thanks for coming along on another NYFW adventure! I’ll be back soon with more runway snaps and behind-the-scenes action.
Also, how cute is the logo & branding for fashion week this year? Quite timely for valentine’s day…
Kiss kiss! See you soon…
