RISD Seniors Stage Runway Show During NYFW With Support From Tommy Hilfiger

SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST: Padded survivalist jackets, feathery skirts for men, breast-baring knit tunics for women and beaten leather jumpsuits were among the runway looks at RISD’s senior show Wednesday night.
Afterward, RISD president Rosanne Somerson praised the students, “What’s obvious in their work is the thought process in each collection — the structure, the materials, the craft and the ideology of a new way of thinking about their line of fabric. Each collection was inspired by a scent and what really came across is the way the scent transformed into an emotion.”
She also thanked Tommy Hilfiger, whose daughter Elizabeth is a RISD grad, for making the event possible. Other alums Nicole Miller and Todd Oldham were also in the front row. “I thought it was fantastic,” Miller said. “But I don’t think anything is going to get sold. In the old days, we used to sell the clothes.”
Participants selected to represent the class were Erica Kim, Lou Rodgers, Yufei Liu, Fernando Flaquer, Matthews Streepy, Ying Bonny Cai, Maya Ortiz, Michaela Wong Xing Yi, Rachel Wong, Xiaoyan Jiang, Avery Albert, Persephone Bennett, William Lathrop and Zehua Crystal Wu. In the look book, each senior wrote a poem about his or her

And the Top Trending NYFW Topic on Social Media so Far Is…

Nicki Minaj has been a hot topic during New York Fashion Week.
According to social media analytics firm Talkwalker, the rapper has been the most talked about celebrity on social media, by a large margin — she clocks in at over 66,000 mentions, while Michael Kors follows behind at over 7,000. Ralph Lauren at over 6,000, and Tom Ford at nearly 5,000. While Minaj has been making the NYFW rounds, sitting front row at shows such as Opening Ceremony and Monse and attending parties for the Daily Front Row awards and IMG’s fashion week kick-off party, she really has Harper’s Bazaar Icons party to thank for the uptick. Her much buzzed-about altercation with Cardi B at the Plaza Hotel Friday night was the top trending topic at NYFW on social media over the weekend, with their fight garnering more than 400,000 engagements.
All in all, there have been over 300,000 posts for NYFW in the past week. And with several more days to go, only time will tell if Minaj comes out of the week on top.

At Kate Spade’s First NYFW Since Its Founder’s Death, The Show Goes On

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

Finally, the oppressive New York heat broke on Friday, and Kate Spade (the brand) heralded the cooler season, ringing it in with bells, whistles, a bit of glitter—and an inevitable pause for thought.

Though Kate Spade left her namesake line when she sold it to Neiman Marcus, and had no creative or financial control over the label since then, her death by suicide in June put the label’s New York Fashion Week show under an understandable spotlight.

But, unlike an award show, there would be no In Memoriam highlight reel of Spade headshots set to the tune of an overplayed acoustic ballad.

Rihanna Brings Savage x Fenty to NYFW

It’s been a minute since New York Fashion Week had a jolt of a major celebrity fashion collection. Kanye West has taken his Yeezy collection off the show circuit and the last runway production for Rihanna’s Fenty Puma collection was a year ago.
But she’s back sans Puma.
Rihanna will stage an “immersive experience” for her Savage x Fenty lingerie collection Sept. 12 at 7:30 p.m. in Brooklyn. In that time slot, after the Marc Jacobs show at 6 p.m., Rihanna is effectively closing out New York Fashion Week. She launched Savage, done in partnership with El Segundo, Calif.-based TechStyle Fashion Group, in May with a series of pop-up shops/parties that kicked off at the Villain in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The collection she presents next month will be fall 2018 and will be immediately shoppable at Savagex.com, as well as a New York pop-up, followed by a Mall of America pop-up and two additional cities in the fall.

Proenza Schouler will return to NYFW after season in Paris

Big Apple fashion house Proenza Schouler, which snubbed New York Fashion Week last year for Paris, is returning to NYFW in September — but fashionistas should temper their excitement. “It is nice to have been missed, and I think people are excited that we are back,” cofounder Lazaro Hernandez said at the French-American Luxury Exchange…

MARC JACOBS

There are a few things that Marc Jacobs’ closing show of New York Fashion Week does to the letter. The first is that, to a fault, it starts bang on time. On Wednesday, Cardi B, a late entrant to the Park Avenue Armory, held him up by a few seconds making her way to her front row seat glacially slowly. So now we know who Marc Jacobs will wait for.

Lil’ Kim, Debbie Harry, Sofia Coppola, and Christina Ricci made it to their seats on time, and receive gold stars for their good behavior.

The NYFW Show Where the Front Row and Runway Were Equally Epic

Welcome to Runway Matters, where we’re delivering notes straight from the runway so you can quickly digest the most important trends and noteworthy moments from the F/W 18 shows.

Some may argue that a 10-year anniversary for a fashion brand calls for a celebration that’s 10 times bigger than whay they’ve done in the past. We’d venture to guess that Christian Siriano is one of those people. While his shows have always been a major draw in the years past—for the made-for-the-red-carpet creations, celebrity front row, and lineup of models who represent women (and men) of all sizes, ethnicities, and backgrounds—it all culminated at New York’s Masonic Hall with a packed crowd and a runway filled with all the drama and glamour one could hope for.

From the opening look on modern-day icon Ashley Graham, to dresses that had us thinking of Oscar night, to a beautiful roundabout finale walk by the models, with The Cranberries’ “Dreams” playing in the background, it’s hard to narrow down the highlights. We did our best with the five below.

We can’t speak about a Christian Siriano show without talking about the designer’s approach to casting. His runway—as well as many aspects of how he does business—celebrates all women and aims to have them all feel as elegant and extravagant as they want. Sure the runways of Fashion Week might be primarily about the industry and the clothes, but somehow Siriano always makes it feel like it’s about the woman, too. Well, women.

There were plenty of familiar faces on the runway for Siriano, but you may not have recognized one. That is, unless you’ve seen him family album. Siriano cast his sister, Shannon, to walk in his 10th Anniversary runway show, as well.

Truthfully, it’s very hard to pick just one from the show. But something about the sparkle of this dress—trust us, it’s like walking Kira Kira—made us feel like it could be a special contender for the red carpet.

If you’ve never been to a runway show before, let us assure you: When the models are walking, the audience is often quiet. Not cheering or clapping, no matter how amazing the garment. But that does not apply to Siriano’s shows. When the crowd sees a gorgeous dress, spots a celebrity, or wants to recognize the beautiful diversity seen on the runway, you hear it. It’s loud, it’s infectious, and it’s wonderful. Naturally the surprise appearance of Danielle Brooks and Selma Blair caused quite a ruckus.

When you have Graham, Brooks, and Blair walking a runway, you’d think your eyes would be fixed on their every move (they were). But we’d be remiss to mention the internal struggle not to watch the front row as well, which included so many amazing women and Siriano supporters, including Cardi B, Whoopi Goldberg, Laverne Cox, Coco Rocha, and more.

Tom Ford’s Leopard Comes to the NYFW Disco in Hot Pink

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

A leopard may not change its spots, but a Tom Ford leopard sure knows how to keep them colorful.

Out leopard print came at his Fall/Winter 2018 womenswear extravaganza—and a Tom Ford show is always an extravaganza of the famous, smart, and glamorously accented—held at the Armory in New York City on Thursday night. It was on shiny pantsuits and slinky sweaters, and it came acid-bright in hot pink and lime green. It was even, most prettily, on a tiered, ruffled yellow dress.

The pre-game at Tom Ford is: Who was that on the front row? I did love the people behind me who, observing the flashbulb activity around Zayn Malik, had a collective head-scratch of knowing they should know who it was, and that it was a pop star, right, until someone said loud enough for group clarity: “ZAYN. IT’S ZAYN FROM… I MEAN HE’S JUST ZAYN NOW.”

Harlem Fashion Row Celebrates 10 Years Of Adding Diversity To NYFW

Harlem Fashion Row, founded by CEO Brandice Daniels, celebrated it’s 10th year showcasing and highlighting designers of color in the fashion industry. The dynamic and trendsetting show was held at La Marina in Upper Manhattan and featured four designers (that all need to be on your radar): FeNoel, Undra Celeste, K. RaShaé, and Kimberly Goldson.

Backstage had a lively, yet calm, hustle and bustle, a rarity at Fashion Week.Jumping from metallic face paint and gold nails at Kimberly Goldson, I was equally loving the Studio 54 vibes I was getting from FeNoel. Undra Celeste gave us a bold, gold eyelid while K. RaShaé opted for dewy, teenage esq skin with a dark lip.

I had an opportunity to interview each of the designers and one thing that was prevalent was their appreciation and adoration for the platform that Harlem Fashion Row has provided for them.

Kimberly Goldson, who has been showing at Harlem Fashion Row for 5 years said, “I love Brandice Daniels for just thinking so much of us. We need this platform, we are underrepresented in the retail space. I love her for just championing for us. Trying to get people to support us, she’s (Brandice) is one of our biggest supporters.”

Though rainy, nothing could dampen the spirit and mood of the event. It kicked off with Daniels discussing Harlem Fashion Row and how the road to making it to 10 years, has been anything but easy, yet everything rewarding. She encouraged the crowd, stating, “To anyone in the room thinking of giving up, there is gold in the perseverance.”

She then proceeded to honor, introduce, and uplift each recipient, giving out hand sculpted awards, created by Jordan Baker Caldwell.

Claire Sulmers, founder of Fashion Bomb Daily was the recipient of the New Media award. The Brooklyn based grad got emotional on stage, sharing her love and passion for fashion, but most importantly, what drove her to starting her site.

I’ve always loved and been fascinated by fashion, but I’ve always felt like an outsider,” she said. “Thanks to the digital landscape and social media, I’ve moved from an outsider to an insider.”

The Harvard grad, boasting over 1M followers on Instagram for her site, smiled and credited the Internet for driving her success,

In addition to running her site and being a fashion trendsetter, she is now a correspondent with Revolt TV.

Chioma Nnudi, the Fashion News Director at Vogue received the Editor of the Year Award, joining the ranks of Elaine Welteroth, Editor of Teen Vogue, who received the award last year. Chioma got on stage admitting, “I’m more of a writer than a talker. It always comes down to being resourceful, being inspired, [and that] not always having the most of everything can spark creativity.

Recording artist Andra Day received the Decennium Trailblazer Award and while she was unable to attend, a video played with her thanking Harlem Fashion Row for the award and the importance of supporting Black designers.

Spike Lee received the Decennium ICON 360 of the year award and was introduced by Julee Wilson, Fashion Director at Essence Magazine. While some might find it odd for the Knicks loving filmmaker to receive a fashion award, Julee explained, “His personal style to the style and the culture he brought to the world with his films is unprecedented.”

After the awards, the runway portion of the evening began with each designer having a short video to introduce themselves and more about their collection and inspiration. The fashion show began with FeNoel opening the show with her Studio 54 feel and flowed into Undra Celeste NY’s vintage vibes giving a nod to the 70’s.

The show continued with K. RaShaé who admitted exclusively to Hello Beautiful to being inspired by Janelle Monae and her classic black and white vibes. Goldson closed the show with golden glam  perfection, that this Brooklyn girl was inspired by during a recent trip to the Middle East.

Noteables in attendance included Sidra Smith, Michaela Angela Davis, Emil Wilbeken, Audrey Smaltz, Misa Hylton, Mikki Taylor and more.

Gigi Hadid lost a shoe on the runway at NYFW, but sister Bella saved the day

Even when you’re a total expert at something, there’s always a time when things just don’t go as planned. Case in point: Gigi Hadid lost a shoe during New York Fashion Week , but it all turned out okay in the end.

Firstly, let’s just all agree that super high platform heels can be tricky to walk in — even for the pros. But, as with any unexpected happenings in life, it’s usually just best to laugh it off. Which is exactly what Gigi did with sister Bella, who linked arms with her big sis and helped her finish off the show with total poise.

Here’s a video of how the whole thing went down. You’ll notice that the audience could hardly tell that anything was amiss — all thanks to Bella!

That’s the perfect sisterly support system right there.

Now, can we discuss their outfits? Gigi’s silver sequined dress and Bella’s floral frock are giving us so much fall style inspo. And we are absolutely digging the show’s ’60s-inspired, bohemian theme (also, the clip definitely proves that fringed vests are back, and we’re 100% on board with that).

It’s also a great reminder that dresses can be layered with jewelry, jackets and wraps to give them an element of funk.

via GIPHY

We’re glad that Gigi’s wardrobe malfunction didn’t stop her from finishing out the show, and we’re also glad that sister Bella was there to fall back on. It’s a great reminder that life will always throw the unexpected at us, but as long as we have the support and friends and loved ones, we can make it through like champs!

‘Ya’ll Know I’m Ghetto’: Leslie Jones Unable To Control Herself During NYFW Show

Whether she’s cheering for Olympic athletes or watching an episode of “Game of Thrones,” Leslie Jones has never been one to curb her enthusiasm for any occasion.

That’s why it’s no surprise that the “Saturday Night Live” star was unable to keep her composure while sitting in the front row of Christian Siriano’s spring 2018 fashion show.

The “Project Runway” champ, if you recall, was the first to answer Leslie’s call (literally, with a hand-waving emoji) when she tweeted that no designer was willing to dress her for the “Ghostbusters” premiere.

On Saturday, the woman fanned all the way out at his collection, whooping and hollering over the array of ball gowns and cocktail dresses that came down the runway, often cheering by herself.

She saved her biggest reaction to model Coco Rocha, who closed the show.

Jones took to Twitter afterward the experience, saying “I think [I] acted more like I was at a game than [a] fashion show!! Y’all know I’m ghetto.”

And of course, Leslie responded.

Here’s what the Washington Post’s famed fashion critic Robin Givhan thought of Jones that night:

…It was a delight. Fabulous. Exhilarating. It was a gust of fresh air into an industry that too often sucks the pleasure out of a something that should be, if not fun, then at least not like surgery without anesthesia. Oh, sure, Jones, the “Saturday Night Live” comedian, was not working, unlike many of the people in the audience. She was not racing around town from one show to another and trying to take appointments in between.

But still, Jones was a reminder that although fashion can feed the culture in all sorts of ways, its most basic mission is to make people feel good about themselves and about others. So, we should cheer fashion.

Below, Leslie freaking out over Coco Rocha from various angles:
