What We Loved At New York Fashion Week
In early February a timed and true staple of New York City occurred. New York Fashion Week! Like every season the week is full of busy professionals running from fashion show to fashion show. It was no different for our Editor-in- Chief Tabitha Serrano. With her own scheduled shows for her blog Concreteislandista and surveying the shows for Latinista Tabitha was able to take in the latest styles to strut down the runway. Here are some of our favorites!
Venezuelan designer Nidal Nouaihed specializes in jaw dropping couture. Within his 20 plus years in fashion he has honed into showcasing extravagant gowns and impeccably designed menswear. Details are the name of the game for Nidal’s line and this season was no different. Touches of Asia were an inspiration with turbans while royalty both form the east and west also took inspirational roles for the collection. Modern yet classic, the collection took on formal wear with bold colors and prints paired with classic silluetes for both men and women. Fit for both royalty of yesteryear and today.
Antony Rubio Designs
Anthony Rubio’s couture line of dresses are not only for women but for her furry four-legged friend as well. Fashion for pet and owner are not the only focal point for Anthony Rubio collections. Animal rescue, adoption and population control are important causes for the designer which he focuses on by showcasing pets available for adoption. One of the organizations the Puerto Rican designer joined forces with this season was Animal Light House. An organization that rescued dogs from Puerto Rico shortly after hurricane Irma. For the S/S 18 collection Anthony was inspired by his recent trip to Greece and the vibrant colors and culture found there. Being so, brightly colored dresses and tile like prints donned the models and their accompanying pooch.
Held in the basement of an unassuming boutique space, a speakessy vibe of red lights and stylish low lamps set the mood. Adolfo Sanchez showcased his Nuevo Dia Collection with an opening show by sunglass designer Alister Mekhi. Models in sheer shimmery body suits strutted the latest collection of eyewear down the catwalk. A princess with edge was the vibe of the Nuevo Dia show as black moto jackets morphed into glittery bombers, ball gowns and a touch of edge with clear train skirts. The girl wearing the Nuevo Dia collection is elegant and edgy. Not afraid to show skin and be the perfect princess all in one day. Some of our favorites include the white mini tull dress with delicate lace bolero. A mini lace dress with cape was a fresh take on a dress that if longer in length might not be as fun. From dark to light and demure to sexy the collection was all incomepsing in who a woman can choose to be.
Which was your favorite? We cant wait to see what this designers have up their sleeve next New York Fashion Week.
