Wang's inspiration for the collection named “BLOOM” came from not just any normal flower but one that grows underwater in the depths of the coldest tundra. The flower then finds its way through the narrowest crack, strong and resilient, the flower will always find its way. Wang accompanied her collection with upcoming seasonal trend
7.9.2018 10:30am Krammer & Stoudt Aptly named “8 Days in Japan", the SS19 collection took inspiration from designer Mike Rubin's first visit to Japan. We knew we were in a show when Brooklyn street dancers served both as models and performed a live dance for editors to marvel at. We love when a designer doesn't go too literal and Rubin remained true to the brand while deriving his Japanese inspiration. We could tell the juxtaposition between peacefulness and the chaotic natur
9.8.17/2pm: MUSED by Lindsay Jones Stepping into the High Line Hotel, we knew this wasn't going to be any ordinary SS18 runway show. The Músed Collection , called the ‘Divine Love Letter’ was inspired by a dark period, followed by hope, correlating to much of today's current climate. Being in the hauntingly beautiful space, Jones' channeling of angels, lions, and all things gold managed to shine through. Seamlessly working in her mens pieces- which could be worn by any gender
9.6.17/3pm: M65 Presentation Starting off NYFW a day early, we were looking forward to an illuminating presentation from M65, put on by NYFW guru Sydney Reising.

126.96.36.1996 / 10:00AM: Claudia Li Our first show of the day was well worth the early wake up. For this SS17 collection, Li "sheds reality", freeing oneself and embraces natures chaos and tranquility. The collection was inspired by orchids and a hazy liveliness that one can find implicitly in nature. Li, remaining true to her aesthetic, made sure to have denim but introduced it new ways through embroidery techniques that are unique to her. She also introduced male models thi
