I made the mistake of working going to school and doing fashion week everyday for seven days. What was I thinking!?! So now that I have loosened the reigns and Fashion week is off into London I decided to share some nuggets from the past week that I feel are blog worthy. I will do a full New York Fashion Week series until you guys are all caught up.
My first stop was the Charles Miller Denim show at the Prince George Gallery. I love simple shows that allow you to appreciate craftsmanship and focus on the design instead of getting lost in the sauce. I don’t like when designers over style the runway. From a stylists perspective if a designer gives me a clean canvas it allows my mind room to put forth my own creativity. It takes a brave and confident soul to style the runway so simply. I loved it!
The models were barefoot and shirtless. But that was only one of the reasons that I loved the show. This was one of the the first fashion week events that featured both a runway presentation and an installation AT THE SAME TIME! I love installations essentially they are a live photograph of a designers vision.
I would love to be able to create a denim story for my style portfolio using his pieces. The denim quality and craft looked amazing in person.
