New York Fashion Week is an iconic event and every show during the week is unique and carefully crafted by the designers and all those who make it possible.

It goes without saying that Naeem Khan knows his way around a gorgeous gown. Mumbai native Khan fused his technical tutelage under renowned American designer Halston with his family’s design background to cultivate an aesthetic that is equal parts refined, sophisticated, and engaging. His admirers cement Khan’s reputation as a man at the pinnacle of his craft; his A-list clientele includes Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Kate Middleton, and Michelle Obama.
New York Fashion Week is one of the many big events that take place in the city. The streets are filled with fashionable individuals rocking high-end designers or even slaying the sidewalks with their very own looks. However, the models aren’t the only ones dressed to impress; from popping, bright colors to mink or leather, the city itself becomes a fashion show during this time. As much as we love viewing videos or photos from the shows and admiring the pieces from the designers, many people don’t acknowledge the beauty theme for each show. Makeup and hair play just as an important a role as the pieces from the collections of any fashion show. The themes can go from simple and natural to bold and dark. Every model is beautiful in their own way, which makes the beauty part of the game an even more interesting feature to the runway shows. While the makeup and hair may be similar, every model wears them differently. That being said, here are the top beauty looks from NYFW.
alice + olivia founder Stacey Bendet has never been afraid to embrace the bold and unconventional. It’s fitting, then, that the alice + olivia Spring 2018 presentation bypassed the traditional NYFW runway format in favor of a series of quirky vignettes meant to evoke the iconic Chelsea Hotel, whose artistic tenants substituted their work for rent. In homage to its inspiration, many celebrities channeled their creative talent into the elaborate set designs, including Jemima Kirke and Tallulah Willis.
In the world of fashion, the glamorous, mesmerizing brands are the ones that capture people’s attention, especially during New York Fashion Week. Badgley Mischka and Francesca Liberatore do exactly this with their dapper lines of clothing and accessories. Badgley Mischka’s line adds a modern flair to seemingly timeless eveningwear designs, and Francesca Liberatore’s collection includes powerful colors and styles that represent the 90’s vintage look.
When most people think of rain, they think of inconvenience. They see a cold, wet, and dreary day. They think of mud, big gray clouds, thunder, and lightning. There are rain boots and slippery sidewalks and clunky umbrellas; there are people running for cover under trees and awnings. But when luxury ready-to-wear fashion designer Katie Gallagher thinks of rain, she sees the beauty and mystery in it, enough to base her entire Spring/Summer 2018 collection around it.
Fashion designer Eva Yiwei Xu has always aimed for simplicity, artistry, and elegance in her designs, and this continues to show in her latest Fall/Winter 2017 Collection for her brand, All Comes From Nothing. The collection, which debuted at New York Fashion Week this month, features an array of pieces from belted trench coats to trendy pullovers and is perfect for any woman who lives a creative lifestyle.
Nights are getting shorter, notebooks and pencils dominate the aisles of your local Target, and suddenly conversation has turned from pool parties to schedules. This can only mean one thing: school is, unfortunately, back in session. Whether you’re finishing out your senior year at university or starting your freshman year of high school, personal style is never more important than it is at the beginning of the year.
Now that New York Fashion Week is over, we’re having major post-show feels. The show was one for the books—from athleisure to formal wear, there wasn’t a single moment where our eyes weren’t glued to the beautiful models strutting the trendiest looks across the runway. Our fashion editors were in the front row, snapping pictures of clothes and accessories that are to die for. Fashion designers like Oscar de la Renta, Rag & Bone, and Vivienne Tam blessed the runway this year, giving us major inspiration to upgrade our wardrobes.

It feels like only yesterday when I was rushing from fashion show to fashion show during New York Fashion Week with Editor-in-Chief of Cliché, Megan. That was last year, though, and here we are again; another season of NYFW having come and gone, one that was filled with endless celebrity sightings, head-turning streetwear, awe-inspiring collections, and models that have you crushin’ non-stop. The addictive feeling created by NYFW is one like no other; it’s a time that makes many people just wanna pick up and move there. And we don’t blame ya!
