This season, the Big Apple again played host to the biggest event in fashion, with dazzling shows and parties taking place all over the city. Schön! was there dashing across town to give you a backstage look at what went down at some of our favourite shows, with photographer Joe Jagos capturing the buzz behind the scenes at Angel Chen, Han Wen, Libertine, Moon Choi and Particle Fever.
Angel Chen’s NYFW debut was fresh. With a keen eye for colour, print and movement, the collection youthfully combined rich textures and exaggerated silhouettes creating an unmistakable edge and attitude.
At the launch of Han Wen’s SS19 collection, the clothes veritably spoke for themselves. The designs were showcased on an installation of mannequins as a party took place around the pieces. Han Wen created a setting for his chic, summery collection to directly interact with the party-goers and the city.
Libertine shows always flaunt quirkiness, and this season was no exception. The cheeky brand graced us with increasingly outrageous appliques, stickers and prints. Bling and excitement once again completed the Libertinesque look both on the runway and in the rows of Libertine-faithfuls who came to see the show.
Moon Choi’s first presentation at NYFW was lovely. A sensitivity for feminity saw looks of cascading silks and pleated tailoring donned by both men and women. Luxury carried with such ease made for a splendid fashion week debut.
Forward-thinking Particle Fever put on an exciting show. It ingeniously reimagined classic items of performance wear, showing fashionable and alternative athletic clothes to get your heart racing.
While NYFW is iconic for the big fashion houses it shows, you know you won’t be let down by the riveting emerging designers it presents. Once again fashion week gave us a taste of the names we want to know and want to wear in time for Spring/Summer 19.
