As mentioned in our NYFW Day 1 post, we at The Fashion Gazette don’t care about designers’ race, color, or ethnicity. We support talents of all sorts – and it’s the fashion talent we truly care about. So again, remember that we strive to be real and honest here!
Now let’s get on with it! We’re looking back on the second day of NYFW for SS23 and sharing our thoughts on our top and bottom 3 designer picks.
Read on to see if you agree.
The Crack: Prabal Gurung
The Nepalese-American fashion designer’s show was probably the second most creative one from NYFW this season (if you’re wondering who’s the first, come back for Day 3’s article to find out!). We especially adore the ultra-sexy suiting, bold silhouettes, and of course, abundant pops of color! “Bref j’adore,” our Editor-in-Chief Cici Celia commented.
The Crack: PATBO
The Brazilian brand that is known for capturing the vibrant energy of South America gave us a show with a collection featuring very feminine, chic, elegant, yet sexy and modern pieces. The fringe and pearl details really caught our attention, too.
The Crack: Dauphinette
You can count on this made-in-New-York outerwear sustainable brand to add some whimsical vibes on a gloomy day. Founded by Olivia Cheng, Dauphinette always offers something unexpected and refreshing, and we’re here for that!
And now onto what you’re really here for…the Craps.
The Crap: Eckhaus Latta
“I don’t know if they were going for the homeless look or not,” our Editor-in-Chief Cici Celia commented, “but the collection just seemed unfinished, and honestly, amateurish, too.” Well, we’re wondering if some of the pieces by this American brand got chewed up by someone’s puppy or something.
The Crap: Jason Wu
It seemed to us that only one or 2 designs were worth mentioning. While the rest of the collection was simply… boring. Maybe someone left the creative effort at home and forgot to bring it to work this season.
The Crap: NewLeaper
NewLeaper is an US and China-based fashion management agency that showcases green designers. Well, that explains some things a little because the show was between “WTF is that” and “Okay, that’s not too bad.” We’re not saying everything was terrible but overall it felt more like a “let’s test this out” and well, there’s certainly room for improvement.
Stay tuned for Day 3!
