New York Fashion Week Debuts Unique Pieces

One of the most reputable events in New York City is the New York Fashion week where we are able to preview the new fashion trends of the year to come. Fashion week started on September 7, and continued on until September 13 and there were multiple statement pieces throughout the show. There were many releases of popular designers’ spring collections including: Christian Siranio, Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch, and Caroline Herrera. Throughout the week there were a multitude of clothing options including dresses, heels, suits, as well as bags. 

Throughout the show there were many different pieces that caught my eye including Micheal Kors dresses that were chic and classy. Among other pieces were dresses from Kim Shui that were colorful as well as modern. Some other noticeable designs were elegant suits from Bezva as well as Theory. These fashion sensations are some I expect to be flying off the shelves at the release. Although there has been some clothing that seemed beautiful there are other pieces that have been facing bad feedback.

Throughout the past couple of years fashion has taken a turn away from the simple and graceful looks and has begun to gravitate towards an abstract look. This new era of modern and abstract clothing has been very well known but is it necessarily a good change? Many people believe it to be odd as some designers turn to using curtains as clothes or even making clothes rippable. These designers claim that their pieces stand for a deeper meaning but is there a certain breaking point to this expression? As I searched through the looks I saw some clothing that looked ragged and torn. They would be unpleasant colors and would have weird accessories that wouldn’t match the main piece. Some of the clothes were see-through or huge baggy garnish. 

I understand both the designers point of view as well as a normal person looking into these questionable pieces. I know many designers have stated that through their art is a way to express themselves as well as draw attention to certain subjects. Also, people may look at these designs perplexed at what is happening and what it stands for. I believe that although art is made as a form of expression; there may be times that it does go too far. There is no need for ripped clothing and accessories that may be offensive to some people. Everyone is allowed for their own tastes but I feel that designers should not expect their dirty garments to be the hit of the show. It seems as if these “creative” pieces stand for something impossible to understand. There has been this lingering question over everyone’s heads especially after runways have been adapting to this new era. So, do you believe that fashion should stay sleek and classy or shift into something recognizable?
