New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is taking over Downtown Manhattan from February 11-18 and there are a bunch of new, cool, and inclusive things to do that perhaps you don’t know about. Here’s a list of celebrity collaborations, new events and new hot spots you can check out.
Of course, NYFW is not NYFW if it doesn’t include Mr. Kanye West. This year, his much anticipated runway show will take place on February 11 at Madison Square Garden. In addition to revealing his latest designs he will also be revealing his new music from his upcoming album, The Life of Pablo.
Style-icon Rihanna will be hit the runway on February 12th to showcase her most recent collaboration with Puma. Just as with Kanye West, expect Rihanna’s fashion show to be packed with A-list celebrities.
Fashion houses have finally heard the people and this year some brands will be in fact showcasing in-season collections. In other words, they will reveal looks that are currently available in the market, as opposed to just showcasing designs from the Fall 2016 collections. Some brands that are partaking in this new trend include: Burberry, Vetements, Tom Ford, Rebecca Minkoff, LaQuan Smith and Banana Republic.
New Hot Spots:
The coolest hot spot is actually your own home. Runway shows, like Alexander Wang’s and Dian von Furstenberg’s, will be live streamed. If you want to take a look at the schedule of the shows or the actual shows, click here.
If you don’t feel like staying at home, you can watch the live-streamed shows from the NYFW official headquarters. These will be adjacent to Milk Studios. The actual fashion shows will take place at Skylight Clarkson Square, Skylight at Moynihan Station, and MADE Milk Studios.
Really Cool Stuff Happening:
This year at NYFW, New York-based clothing company SmartGlamour will be hosting a body-positive runway show featuring sizes XXS to 6X. The fashion show will reveal the company’s spring collection. And as if this show could not get any better – it’s free.
Another really cool event happening is all thanks to FTL Moda. This designer platform believes that fashion should be inclusive, thus their fashion show will feature models like Madeline Stuart, who was born with Down syndrome, and Shaholly Ayers, who will walk without her prosthetic arm.
Overall, NYFW 2016 seems like a great series of events to attend to. So take your pick, mark your calendars and indulge in some fashion!
