Five Things We Learned From New York Fashion Week

Fashion month is officially here! It kicked off with New York Fashion Week, and top designers reveal the new trends which are set to hit stores everywhere next season. Here are five things LUXE Models learned from New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017.

Even models fall

As a fashion model, you’ll be expected to strut down runways while wearing killer heels. In New York Fashion Week. which ran from 7th to 14th September, we learned that even the most professional of models have trouble with heels. While appearing at the Michael Kors show, the gorgeous Bella Hadid, who was rocking a sparkling ruffled black dress, tripped over her sky-high heels. But like any professional, glamorous Bella got right back up again!

Season’s hottest colour

We discovered that yellow is destined to be the season’s hottest colour. Every shade of yellow, from zingy-lemon to mustard, appeared on the New York Spring/Summer 2017 runways. Alexander Wang caused a real stir by opting for highlighter pen neon yellow while Thakoon raised cheers with a more muted mustard tone, which looked really fresh when paired with statement gold earrings.

New clothing trends

New York’s catwalks were littered with hot clothing trends. With the latest September fashion covers, we saw that cut-outs are set to be huge and this trend also appeared at Fashion Week. Other clothing trends revealed included deconstructed shirts, which wowed Carolina Herrara’s audience, ruffles and slip-one shoes. Tibi’s black slip-on shoes, which had cigarette lighter-sized heels, were amazing!

Cool beauty fads

We saw a ton of new beauty fads which are destined to become trendy in Spring/Summer 2017. Grazia writes that surfer-girl beach hair was a real hit at Alexander Wang’s show, while designers such as Jason Wu confirmed that bright matte lips will be hot next season. Other emerging beauty trends included pastel-wash eyeshadow, neon-orange nails and snapchat filter-inspired beauty accessories.

Kanye’s public humiliation

Here at LUXE Models, we had a few doubts when we found that rapper (and professional egoist) Kanye West was going to debut his ‘Yeezy Season 4’ line in New York. The concert/performance piece of a show was a hot mess, with some models even passing out, making headlines around the world. Adding salt to the wound, celebrated fashion consultant Tim Gunn later labelled the collection “a hoax.”

See you in London

And with that, we wave goodbye to another New York Fashion Week and we’ll see you in London. With a number of respected designers and brands, including Top Shop, Christopher Kane to Burberry set to unveil their new collections at London Fashion Week Spring/Sumer 2017, it’s sure to be epic!
