13 things that spark up the New York Fashion Week.

Fashion Week Chatter: Weather Woes and Celebrity Sightings

Fashion Week discussions have veered away from the expected juicy gossip and instead revolve around endless talks about the unrelenting heat, humidity, and rain. Michael Kors pointed out that September in New York usually garners compliments, but this time, the weather isn’t cooperating.

Star-Studded Guest List

Despite the ongoing strikes, this Fashion Week witnessed a star-studded guest list. Some notable appearances included Pamela Anderson at Proenza Schouler, Jodie Turner Smith and Joshua Jackson at COS, Halle Berry at Michael Kors, Laura Dern at Gabriela Hearst, and Diane Keaton and Julianne Moore at Ralph Lauren. JLO also made her presence felt at Ralph Lauren and Coach. However, the surprise guest who raised eyebrows was Martha Stewart, who RSVP’d to both the Rimowa party and Veronica Beard dinners.

Eveningwear Takes Center Stage

Eveningwear stole the spotlight, with designers like Altuzarra, Tory Burch, Brandon Maxwell, Gabriela Hearst, and Phillip Lim showcasing their creations. Off the runway, ballet flats and Mary Janes gained popularity in street style fashion.

Debuts and Returns

Peter Do’s Helmut Lang debut generated immense anticipation, while 3.1 Phillip Lim and Ralph Lauren made comebacks on the schedule for SS24. Another notable debut was by Diotima, with designer Rachel Scott making her NYFW debut with a collection that included outstanding crocheting. Fforme, a brand known for ultra-luxe and meticulously-minimal designs, transitioned from appointments to a show, adding excitement to the fashion scene.

Fashionable Parties

Fashion Week wasn’t just about the runway; there were some remarkable after-hours events. Highlights included the Rimowa exhibition opening, the Zara x Steven Meisel capsule launch, and the Ssense rave celebrating the Jean Paul Gaultier x KNWLS capsule. The latter was noted for its high energy, although some attendees had to balance the festivities with work commitments.

The Resurgence of All-White

All-white ensembles, often associated with high maintenance and luxury, have transcended their 1% connotations. This trend was omnipresent throughout Fashion Week, indicating that we can expect to see more of these outfits at our local dry cleaners.

Jeans Take Center Stage

Blue jeans, a quintessential American staple, received special attention this season. They appeared in various forms, from ombré styles at Dion Lee to metallic finishes at Eckhaus Latta and spray-painted designs at Anna Sui. Ralph Lauren elevated blue jeans with couture-grade craftsmanship.

Christy Turlington Shines

Christy Turlington’s appearance as the closer for Ralph Lauren’s show was a golden moment in itself, requiring no further explanation.

Minimalist Sparkle

With Jenna Lyons embracing a new role, sequins, shimmer, and sparkle have taken on a more minimalist sensibility. Oversized crystals at Phillip Lim, understated glinting at Gabriela Hearst, Proenza Schouler’s unique smashed glass embellishments, and ritzy knits at COS all reflect this trend.

From Scammer to Planner

Anna Delvey, known for her scandalous past, co-hosted newcomer Shao’s show in her East Village apartment. Her experience likely makes her an expert at spotting gate crashers.

Best Moments: Hugs and Naked Dresses

Fashion Week showcased heartwarming moments, from Peter Do hugging his mom to Gabriela Hearst enthusiastically bounding down the runway to embrace a dear friend. These gestures shattered the stereotype of fashion people being standoffish. Meanwhile, the allure of the naked dress continues, with SS24 featuring dresses made from delicate fabrics like tissue-fine chiffon, open-work lace, fishnet, crinkle fabrics, and loose-weave knits, allowing exhibitionists to revel in their style
