NYFW Day to Night :: Cape dress & Sequin edge

by wendy

Kicking off New York Fashion Week with two looks today!  From meetings to NYFW parties to moments in between, a relaxed city look and a statement evening piece.  For a casual vibe, I like wrapping soft jackets around mini lengths, and for a sculpted look, I love pairing structured belts against high-impact dresses.

With the evolution of information sharing, social media, and shopping trends, some designers are shifting to a showing/buying model, which means that their runway/presentation looks can be delivered to the market place right away, and that they are designing in season, which is very demanding because the design cycle is usually 8+ months out.  Designing a collection takes immense creativity and preparation (it’s like shooting a film), but now designers are being challenged to design with a condense timeline so that their collection can be shoppable immediately.  The world of social media is changing, the world of fashion is evolving, and NYFW is the perfect place to observe the complexities of these two worlds.
