When Custo Barcelona showed his Spring/Summer 2017 collection at New York Fashion Week, it almost felt like viewing an art gallery rather than just watching models strut clothing down the runway.

Barcelona filled the collection with unexpected design combinations and styles that felt very fresh, very different and very, very artistic.
It's always refreshing when a designer strays from what is expected and instead presents a collection that is entirely unique and entirely "them." To see a designer create a collection without being influenced by their inhibitions or fears truly is one of the things that draws me to the fashion industry. It's creativity at its purest. And that's exactly what Francesca Liberatore did with her latest Spring/Summer '17 collection presented at New York Fashion Week.
Cushnie Et Ochs made a splash in the fashion industry when they recently presented their Summer/Spring 2017 collection at New York Fashion Week. The collection felt very subtle: subtly sexy, subtly glamorous. But subtle in a major way. And majorly modern.

The modern simplicity of the Orley fall/winter 2016 collection shown at NYFW immediately captured my attention. The collection presented both men's wear and women's wear. As fresh faced models with disheveled bedhead strutted down the runway in cool Chelsea booties, an essence of effortless style was created.
There was incredible variety in the designs presented at the Todd Snyder Fall/Winter 2016 collection at NYFW but the designs all had one thing in common: they presented the concept of what the modern gentleman would wear.
As male models strutted down the runway in sophisticated loafers carrying briefcases, wearing sophisticated gloves and showing off timeless watches, there was a definite sense that the collection took style cues from the 1940's.
Rimmed glasses and sunglasses worn by the models strutting down the runway contributed to the slightly retro mood of the collection. However, modern silhouettes and fresh design details kept the designs hip.
Elliott decided to focus on color for this collection and styled similar-colored designs together for breath-taking monochromatic looks that went beyond hip; the designs emitted a distinct feeling of modernity.
It's not often that a designer focuses on the element of line as the central design point of a collection. However, in Francesca Liberatore's NYFW Fall/Winter 2016 women's collection, she did just that. She focused her attention on the lines in her designs by utilizing subtle striped prints, quilted fabrics, long zippers and line-centered details.
