My fourth day of this season of New York Fashion Week was the busiest day I had. I had 5 shows and 2 presentations as well as some events and meetings. In today’s NYFW recap post I wanted to share reviews of my three favorite shows. Don’t forget to check out Day 1 & 2 for more info on upcoming trends and Day 3 for my outfit and a review of the Bronx & Banco show!
Attending the SS20 Self Portrait runway show was a fashion week dream come true. The collection was absolutely breathtaking; I want almost every piece from it! Below are some of my favorite looks, but if you want to see the full runway show as well as exclusive backstage content showing hair & makeup etc., you can find all of that in my “NYFW pt 1” highlight on instagram.
What I will say about the collection, as far as trends, is that safari style and baby blue ae very clearly back in fashion. Utility looking pieces with structure add an element of boldness to feminine colors for Spring/Summer 2020!
If you love self portrait dresses; here are some of my top picks of pieces that are in store now!
The next show I want to talk about is the Son Jung Wan show. This was my first time attending this show and it was breathtaking! The collection focused on neon candy hues (especially lemon & lime) and pattern mixing. The key trend to take out of this for spring/summer of next year is that neon is not going anywhere; but to make it feel fresh and new, trying styling neon pieces in mixed patterns.
The last thing I want to cover in today’s post is the Rebecca Minkoff presentation. This was really unique for fashion week because Rebecca Minkoff wanted to remove some of the exclusivity & elitism often associated with fashion week and really bring her designs to every woman.
To that end she extended tons of invites to the presentation (which I appreciated in theory but let me tell you it was insanely crowded which was tough) and she showed a fall 2019 collection – ie. pieces available this season as opposed to the usual SS20 collections. So, below are some snaps I took in the presentation, followed by a gallery of my favorite pieces – which will be shopable next month – you can add yourself to their email waitlist for each item if you want to be notified as soon as the products launch!
I actually dropped the ball and this was the only day in which I failed to get a full outfit shot. Above is what I wore, minus my clutch and dramatic hat.
I knew I wanted my outfit to have a ‘self portrait feel’ and I think I achieved it! My lace skirt and top are both from a local Vancouver based boutique called Yedina. I love the romantic yet modern vibe!
