Asia Fashion Show

Photo Journal: NYFW fall 2016 recap

There were so many shows during the fall/winter 2016/2017 runways at New York Fashion Week. I was honored to be invited to attend a small fraction of those runway presentations. Although I try hard to take pictures at each show so that I can share them with you, sometimes I am not in the right spot to get photos. Most of the time my photos are washed out, or blurry. It can be difficult to take pictures from the side!

I always feel lucky when I have a front row seat, or a seat facing the models as they walk down the runway. That is when I am able to get the best photos to share with you.

The single designer articles I shared with you were the ones where I was able to get photos which really capture a good segment of the designer’s collection. Otherwise, I was able to get at least one photo from each show I attended. These photos can give you a snapshot of what I saw on the runway, and what we can expect to see in stores for fall 2016!

Without further adieu, here is my fall 2016 New York Fashion Week recap!

Asia Fashion Collection showed their top designers at New York Fashion Week on February 14, 2016. The show was held at Pier 59 Studios in New York.

I always love watching the Asia Fashion Collection show at New York Fashion Week. It is amazing to see what students from Asia are creating for the future of fashion. I loved all the street style influences, athleisure styles, timeless luxury, and artistic touches the designers infused into their collections.

The two navy coats pictured above are my favorite looks from the Asia Fashion Collection runway. Which looks are your favorite?

Asia Fashion Collection showed their new collection for fall / winter 2015 / 2016 on February 14, 2015 in The Salon at Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week. Asia Fashion Collection features designs from Vantan Design Institute. As a result, the collection features innovative and fresh designs from multiple designers from the institute.

Designers from Asia Fashion Collection created edgy designs which pushed the boundaries of traditional fashion. The designs fused artistic expression together with wearable art; creating a thought-provoking collection which transcends seasonal trends; and what we think fashion should be. Love that!

The creations on the Asia Fashion Collection runway at New York Fashion Week were playful; fusing together modern prints and silhouettes with personal expression. Designers also played with volume which created flattering drape, silhouettes, and overall ensembles. The collections inspired onlookers to think past trends and traditional style in order to take oneself back to a time when getting dressed was fun, playful, and personal.

Isn’t this what fashion should be? Art as opposed to commercial marketing platforms? Thought to ponder. . .
