NY fashion week 2012 F/W part2

The New York Fashion Week ended February 16 (Thursday). During the Fashion Week I was there almost every day. This week’s show had an ethnic undertone and I could see vivid colors such as black, yellow, dark blue and red. Below are photos of Falguni and Shane Peacock’s show.





The long trains in particular really caught my eye. In the photo you cannot see but the dress is a skirt which has a train. And the next photo is Carlos Miele.





As the photos show, I tended to focus on the models’ backs and the styles used. As I thought, these clothes also had trains.
The next show is Zang Toi’s and as expected, they were elegant. As the true red dress added volume, it became very charming. However, to wear it as adult clothes, it would be difficult.




The next show was Diesel Black Gold. The stage setup seemed very complicated. They delivered the invitation to me at my studio. I was surprised by this since it must have cost them a lot to deliver each invitation in person.

The next photos are from Emerson’s show. The name Emerson brings to mind the color purple right away.







I saw this model in another show. She was like an actor and had dignity so I thought she was nice.

The day after the end of the Fashion Week, I was introduced to Vilislava, who is researching fashion trends at a major world sports fashion brand, and she came to my studio for a meeting. For example if she were working for a securities company her job would be a securities analyst. As she analyzes fashion trends she tries to predict future fashion trends and presents her findings to the designers who work for that brand.
When I was watching several fashion shows at the NY Fashion Week, I felt that they shared similar forms, colors, and taste (for example: ethnic, organic, etc.). This coincidence happens because of trend researchers like her I assume.
Some designers have their own unique color image or clothing cuts but when the fashion trend is made, those trend researchers have as much of an impact on creating the trend as the designers themselves. She is also teaching at Parsons. I could understand New York fashions better because of her interesting stories and insight.

Thank you very much to all the designers who invited me: ZANG TOI, LEATHER JAPAN, Carlos Miele, Mara Hoffman, Falguni and Shane Peacock, Prete & Bruno, Emerson, Whiney Eve, Reem Acra, Honor, LARS ANDERSSON, Norisol Ferrari, CATOR SPARKS & NIKLAS ANKAR, TADASHI SHOJI, BASIL SODA, Jad Ghandour, Nomia, Eva Minge, Daniella Kallmeyer, Zuzu Kim, bebe BLACK, Carmelita Couture, Vantan Tokyo, Costello Tagliapietra, HELIOS & LUNA, Nautica. I am looking forward to meeting you again next time.
