As I arrived to the Videmus Omnia NYFW show, I already noticed many amazing looks from those standing in line. As the nature of NYFW brings out most of who’s who in the industry, it also brings out the who’s who of impromptu fashion. What caught my attention was the bright neon colors paired with subtle grey tones. As we entered, I was also taken aback by the rustic feel and exposed brick of the event space, Industria Studios.
The space is definitely like something out of a fashion show movie. I could picture the designer, ahead of time coming to the large open space and saying “yup, this is it”. As the crowd got to their seats, it was clear audience had a slew of interesting fashion industry alumni and newbies.
Drawing from Designer Yun Qu’s inspiration, the collection blended Japanese romanticism in art and tradition, with that of Pablo Picasso’s works in Cubism. The show began with a darker feel, with lots of blacks and greys. It was all about texture, texture, texture. Although the colors at the beginning of the show were dark in nature, the texture of all the pieces made up for any lack of color. The darker dresses with leather and fringe were a must have. I could’ve definitely seen a posh New Yorker showing up to dinner at Tao, with one of these amazing dresses.
