The streets of New York City was filled with excitement and so much style on Saturday, September 12, 2016. Not even the drenching thunderstorm stopped me from attending the show that night! If you are a fashion lover and follower you know that New York Fashion Week is extremely important because it let us know the trends for the Spring and Summer (S/S) or Fall and Winter (F/W) of the following year. I almost got lost while taking the subway because they switch the trains around which confused me but a few friendly people helped me find my way to the venue on time!
The show was organized by event production company The Set NYC who supports and brings together talented artists and Freedom Ladder, which is a nonprofit organization that aims to get people talking about human trafficking. The rain started falling again once I arrived at the venue which was a damper on my hair. My worries quickly disappeared once I walked inside the over crowded venue which was filled with so many fashion-forward people. When I was seated, I seriously noticed everyone’s outfit that came across my path; which kept me entertained until the show started.
The grand opening started with Xi Haute Couture. The easy to wear romantic glamorous gowns were lavish with sharp layers and spectacular trains. Most of the models walked down the runway with adorable little girls who wore impressive matching outfits. There were large selection of sharp tailored dresses, skirts, blouses, jumpsuits, suits and beautiful bold jewelry pieces. The designer stuck within a soft array of mixed maroons, grays, blues, apricots/oranges, reds and black colors.
