Day 8 New York Fashion Week: Last Day of New York Fashion Week!
Happy autumn from J.F.K. airport in New York!
It doesn’t exactly feel like fall yet, but the season is definitely upon us. We have just wrapped up New York Fashion Week and are heading to London next! It will be interesting to see the similarities and differences between Fashion Week in NYC and London. Stay tuned for info on that!
It’s kind of confusing that we are seeing the spring collections for 2019 in September, but that means we see what everyone in the fashion industry is wearing now for the current season (we discuss this is as “street style”-what’s trending now), and what’s coming next as well, in order to keep you up-to-date and ahead of the game!
Our goal in these videos about fashion month, is always to inspire and inform. We introduce brands you may not be familiar with, like Pepa Pombo, a Columbian knitwear label that we fell hard for. We also were excited to attend the Theory presentation which we attended with Lisa Smith, founder of The PR Net, who we greatly admire!
Theory is a go-to of course, but now it is a bit more fashion-forward with the new creative director, Francesco Fucci, who was formerly the head designer for The Row!!!
In this video, you might notice Delia is wearing two different animal prints. Animal print is a huge trend for F18, and we are seeing fashionistas styling it this way -think of it as wearing two different but coordinating prints that you’ve been seeing for the last few seasons.
What emerging brands should we know about?
There are more brands to know in this video, so you might want to take notes; feel free to message us on instagram @alisonbruhn, @deliafolk or @thestylethatbindsus (if you have not begun following us there, please do!), or ask questions in the “comments” section below.
One more standout mention is Sarah Flint. She is from Boston, attended Parsons and is the founder of her eponymous shoe line. In the beginning, she was using the wholesale model and sold her pieces to luxury retailers such as Barneys New York. She decided to go direct to consumer, and therefore, was able to CUT her retail prices almost in HALF, because she eliminated the middle man. Because of this, her customers can get luxury quality, made in Italy, at a more affordable price.
Women such as Lady Gaga, Cindy Crawford and Meghan Markle have worn her shoes! When you have stars such as this wearing the shoes, they sell out very quickly, so if you need help finding a pair you love, but that are gone, let us know and we’ll see what we can do. If you are interested in buying a pair, contact us and we may be able to get a discounted price for you!
We hope you enjoy this video, and that you learn something in the process! Please send suggestions and comments-we want them all! If you missed the earlier videos, you can binge watch NYFW to get ready for the next stop, London!
