Lights, Camera, Action
It's the most wonderful time of the year! No, it's not the holiday season, it's Fall Fashion Week. Since its inception, New York Fashion Week has long been considered an ultra swanky, ultra exclusive event, privy only to fashion editors, buyers, the elite and the famous.
If you didn’t make this season’s list of invitees, lament not. I’m here to bring you a behind the scenes glimpse from 3 of the hottest shows this season, Prabal Gurung, DKNY, and Moncler. As a dresser, I’m lucky enough to see all of the pieces before they hit the runways. Mayhem and pandemonium go hand in hand backstage, but the end product is always a seamless parade of fashion must-haves from designers old and new.
To most, Prabal Gurung isn’t a well known designer, but he’s definitely one to watch.
Donna Karan has always been more than just a designer. She’s a brand that is synonymous with class, timelessness, and quality. Fall Fashion Week came alive at Weiss Studio as Donna Karan previewed pieces from her DKNY line. Showcasing a mix of rich fabrics, assorted patterns, and men inspired suits, the line is guaranteed to take you from the day to night. And don’t put away those sequined tops and dresses, and booties because they’ll still be a haute commodity this fall.
When it comes to outerwear Moncler definitely has the game on lock. For their fall preview, the Italian brand opted for a non traditional approach to the traditional runway show. Models donned the new Grenoble line as they were stacked onto four story scaffolding for three hours at Chelsea Piers’ Golf Course. The line,comprised mostly of black and grey pieces for both men and women, can be best described as ski chic. Small suggestion—if you’re thinking of purchasing one of these trendy jackets, start saving. They could easily run you $1000.
