The Week(s) where Fashion is at the forefront all around the world, is always an enchanting time. From the shows to the afterparties, every city brings something new, but we’re a bit partial to NYFW of course. We got a chance to hit up some of the hottest shows this season had to offer, including Son Jung Wan, Helen Anthony, and JXY N’ Cuso. Each show left us speechless and ready to see what else these designers had up their sleeves.
Son Jung Wan
A highlight of NYFW was the ethereal collection from Korean designer, Son Jung Wan, titled “Extreme Ways” The highly anticipated show included guests such as actor Broderick Hunter, Kelly Rutherford (the brand’s muse), Masika Kalysha, and more. The entire show could only be described as a cascade of colors. Models were grouped by various color groups; from bright yellows to blushing pinks. Embellishments were also a big part of the collection; many of the models sported rhinestone tights and feather or fur appliques.
If your gothic dreams and nightmares could come to life, they would be called “Motions of Strength” better known as Helen Anthony’s debut in NYFW. The collection was inspired by the merging of East and West culture. The glaring statement of the show is the blurring of gender norms and fashion. Male models sported large handbags and clutches while female models at times wore menswear with images of various landscapes.
JXY N’ Cuso
Designer duo Jaxon Yang and Creative Director Nina Cuso hosted their inaugural line at Pier 59 Studios to celebrate Day 3 of NYFW. The avant-garde style collection featured striking colors and sleek, clean-cut fabrics. Models were dressed in dramatic outfits such as high-slit dresses, red ensembles, and even all-white pantsuits. Another highlight of the show was the use of the brand’s signature style of kangaroo tops which added a nice touch to the collaborative line. We’re excited to see what JXY N’ Cuso do next, they definitely did not disappoint.
