New York Fashion Week 2019 has come to an end and all I have to say is, whew! Even though I did not attend (one day soon-- a girl can dream), I was glued to my instagram watching videos, oooing and ahhing at so many photos, and stalking a lot of pages! From what I saw, it was a week filled with so many amazing and unique looks both on and off the runway.
Check out some of the street and runway looks that I loved! I say some because I am giving you all just a taste. But I'll be sure to link some other websites where you can get your fill of NYFW19.
Designer @aliceandolivia is always on brand with lots and lots of color and I love it! This is a look at their Fall 19 collection.
Jonathan Simkhai (@jonathansimkhai) introducing his Fall 2019 collection inspired by the Ukrainian style of dresses his grandmother would wear, reimagined with a modern sensibility.
Ryan Roche (@Ryanrocheny) giving us warm colors, calming earth tones, and casual elegance in his AW19 collection.
Christopher John Rogers (@christopherjohnrogers) giving us color, fun, and drama with his RTW Fall 2019 collection.
I LOVE Laquan Smith (@laquan_smith)!! He knows how to make a woman look and feel sexy. His new collection boasts bold colors, sexy prints, and fierce designs.
Oscar de la Renta (@oscardelarenta) giving us a mix of sexy and classy evening wear. I love the red hues that appear in the different fabrics.
Brandon Maxwell (@brandonmaxwell) came with the elegance for his Fall 2019 collection.
My girl Carly Cushnie (@carlycushnie) came through in a big way with her brand @cushnie for their Fall/Winter 2019 collection. She used a lot of reds, purples, black, and blues and I loved every single thing I saw. The collection is very diverse, yet you can tell there's a "soft and sexy elegance" theme.
I HAD to give my girl Sally LaPointe (@sally_lapointe) not one, not two, but THREE different pictures. I would have given her more but I didn't want to be extra. She is one of my favorite designers. One thing I love about her is her consistency with colors throughout her collections. She pays attention to color tone and fabric cuts to create a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing collection. Her design style is very clean and very chic.
I hope you loved the streetwear and runway looks that I selected. As I said, it was just a taste. There were so many amazing looks this season that you could spend days and weeks looking at them all.
