This year New York Fashion Week kicked off a fashion filled month for design lovers all over the world. Fashion week is a chance for fashion designers, brands, and houses to display their latest collections to buyers and the media. Glamorous events take place every year in four major fashion capitals across the world: New York, London, Milan, and Paris. This year’s collections push the boundaries on what it means to be haute couture and have reimagined the traditional constraints of runway shows. Color, form, and textures are dramatically highlighted and styling has become an opportunity for designers to think outside of the box.
Harris Reed—beloved by Harry Styles—started off the London fashion week with a bang and put on one of the most-hyped shows of the new season. The collection was quasi-couture, six skillfully tailored masterworks that deftly blended the ever-irrelevant lines between menswear and womenswear.
Fashion house VIVIENNE WESTWOOD presented their Fall Winter 2022.23 Collection, inspired by the brand’s Gold Label‘s Autumn Winter 2001 collection titled Wild Beauty, on February 21st, during the ongoing London Fashion Week. The collection celebrates the year of the tiger, and brings animalistic spirit with tiger prints, leopard spots, and a panther-inspired cutting technique. For the season, Dame Vivienne Westwood also found inspiration in art, Pieter Bruegel’s 1559 painting ‘The Fight Between Carnival and Lent’ is featured on certain pieces such as a quilted coat, bag, and shoes. The 71% of the collection was made from low impact and cruelty free materials. The brand reimagined fabrics from previous seasons and made them feel new.
In celebration of its 130th anniversary, Vogue will present a live editorial fashion show, street fair, and special surprises during New York Fashion Week next month. Vogue World: New York will be a first-of-a-kind event—featuring a runway show presenting our favorite looks from the fall 2022 collections, with pieces from Balenciaga, Dior, Gucci, Valentino, Burberry, Coach, Michael Kors, Brother Vellies, Bode, Conner Ives, Christopher John Rogers, Collina Strada, Matty Bovan, Ralph Lauren, Proenza Schouler, No Sesso, Diesel, Banana Republic, Tory Burch, and many other designers. In-person and virtual attendees will also have the chance to shop limited-edition pieces.
