NYFW Fall / Winter 2017 : Diversity, Futurism, Modern Romance and More…

 
 
Hi everyone!
It’s finally getting warm here, in New York City! It’s been a tough month for me, as I’ve been trying to recover from bad cold, while balancing my job and freelance work.
Lately, I’ve been also debating whether I should change the name of this web page and focus on writing reviews about fine jewelry (the industry in which I work) or start anew with a photography blog focusing on fashion and design.
That said, attending the ready-to-wear fall/ winter 2017 New York Fashion Week and appreciating the diversity of amazing emerging designers, inspired me to return to this blog. Also, I find myself coming back because of the community I have here with all of you. I’m so grateful to my followers for supporting me on my journey. Without you, everything would be meaningless.
So, here are the highlights from fashion week that I’d like to share with you: 
Hakan Akkaya was on point this season. Predominantly consisting of black, his collection questions freedom and celebrates sexual, racial and gender equality. hakan_akkaya_nyfw_fall_2017_all_black
The aesthetics of Mémère’s premiere collection by Sarah Julia LeBlanc satisfy the exquisite taste of any romantic fashionista. Featuring thousands of white roses scattered throughout the presentation space and ethereal-looking models, the collection was inspired by the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, which is centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection.

A dreamy vibe and feminine looks were also predominant at Lan Yu’s runway show.  She is one of Asia’s most influential designers. The opulence of fabrics and soft mint hues of the collection were particularly striking. Please, check out my next blog post for details. Lan Yu Fall 2017

Berenik, founded by a Swiss designer and painter, featured 50 diverse artists performing contemporary dance, which reflected its overall diverse nature and the freedom of dance improvisation. The blend of Scandinavian aesthetics, classics, athletic fashion and contemporary streetwear incorporated into the design make the collection accessible for women of any age and sizes.

Denibi, a fashion house based in Barcelona, presented a striking collection featuring futuristic minimalism and African heritage. Denibi symbolizes a utopia for creatives. A place is created where individuals are able to push themselves to the fullest of their artistic ability with like minds and limitless possibilities.Denibi Barcelona Fall Winter 2017 NYFW
