We’ve officially arrived at day 3 of my New York Fashion Week recaps. Day three was a great one, if only because the insane heat wave NYC was having broke haha. Day three brought two shows with it; the first being a presentation by Yuna Yang.
Yuna Yang is a designer from Seoul, currently living in Manhattan. I first saw her collections last fall NYFW when she did a beautiful presentation in a garden. This year she presented her SS19 collection in a church with a live band.
The collection was as beautiful as I expected, with a focus on lace as her primary fabric. She focused her collection on feminine pieces in pastel colors. Some of my favorites are below:
After Yuna Yang I headed to Pier 59, one of the secondary locations for NYFW shows to check out a unique show – something called the Oxford Fashion Collective. The Oxford Fashion Collective put on three shows during fashion week, and they showcased a select group of young emerging designers in each show. I really wanted to see at least one of the three shows during my NYFW as I like the idea of seeing new designers, and getting to see so many collections at once.
I was really excited, therefore, that I was able to make their ‘show 2’ fit into my schedule. The collections I saw were really daring, very fashion-forward, which was a cool edition to my NYFW experience. Below are some of my favorites:
Oxford Fashion Collective (Show 2):
Today I only had one event on the go (unless you count ordering late night Shake Shack with my roommate and spending the evening in our hotel room in our pajamas an “event” haha). After both the shows I headed to the Style Coalition Lounge with my friend Lizzie from Lizzie in Lace.
The Style Coalition Lounge:
Launchmetrics, Style Coalition, and eBayFashion came together and rented a space across from Spring Studios (the main location for NYFW runway shows). They decked this space out into a lounge and invited influencers and media to use this space as a place to go between shows to relax and recharge, to have a cocktail and some snacks, and even to get your hair and makeup touched up! They had amazing hair and make-up teams on site, and the food and drinks were really cool. There were custom made tequila cocktails (pictured below) and snack wise in addition to standard appy’s, there was an old fashioned popcorn maker and a candy station where you could fill a grab bag with dozens of different candy options (.. there were sour patch kids, so I was basically in heaven).
One of the coolest parts though, was that eBay Fashion had decorated a corner of the space in the prettiest lavender hues and hired a Vogue photographer to take attendees photos in the living room set up! It was so fun to do a mini photo shoot with this amazing photographer!
I’ve included below two of the photos he took of me. I also loved that unknowingly my outfit perfectly matched this lavender backdrop. #AccidentalFashionWin.
After spending our evening at the Lounge, Lizzie and I headed back uptown to our hotels. I was so exhausted (day three gets me every. damn. time.) and so spending the evening in my hotel with my roomie Megan (The Fashionista Momma) was exactly what the doctor ordered!
I’ll be back on Friday with a recap of Day 4! Stay tuned!
