The fashion focus may have shifted to Milan, but attendees at New York Fashion Week felt encouraged by the season for a variety of reasons.
The abundance of live streaming, more individualistic runway shows, charity-minded designers, insider-ish tweets, chief executive-heavy front rows and cordial security guards were among the numerous upsides they discovered at Lincoln Center and beyond. While it goes without saying they are sure to spot unfinished hemlines and wayward collars, they seem to be just as detail-minded about other intangibles. Whether it was Band of Outsiders’ models rappelling from the ceiling or Hexa by Kuho’s catwalkers shadow dancing, New York designers tried to break from the predictable to make guests take a closer look. And collectively, that resonated with many.
