New York Fashion History
New York has had a long history of being a center for fashion, dating back to the early 20th century. At that time, it was the largest garment manufacturing center in the United States.
Over the years, NYC has continued to grow as a fashion capital with many of the world’s top designers headquartered – and luxury boutiques lining the streets.
Fortunately, New York City has the infrastructure to support the demands of the fashion industry. With many number of fashion schools and plenty of showroom space, it’s no wonder so many designer fashion groups calls it home.
This year, Heron Preston made their New York Fashion Week debut. The runway gave cyber punk street wear vibes. If you are unfamiliar with the name Heron Preston, you’ll be impressed after a quick search. A true creative, Heron Preston’s pieces speak for themselves.
The collection included the right amount of layering, fray-kissed clothing, and eye-catching accessories.
New York Fashion Brands
Based out of New York, Collina Strada showcased her looks – and also gave a true show. The models donned masks transforming them into animals such as pigs, lizards, and horses. In addition the wildlife, the layering situation was real – skirts over pants, corsets over tops, and more.
Fashion with a Message
Besides the actual fashion, we love when fashion brands use the opportunity to drive a message.
This fashion week, PH5 leaned into the issues plaguing our oceans. Merging fashion with examples of bad human habits, the result was underwater fashion looks with a twist – plastic! The beautifully constructed garments made you look and think about our ecosystem.
Bonus – The brand plants five trees for every single garment sold. We love that!
