New York Fashion Week never ceases to impress us. Alexander Wang decided that it was time to go back to black at the abandoned RKO Hamilton Theater in the Harlem. The fashion designer gave out a disclaimer that there will be no after party. This left us thinking maybe it was because the fashion show itself was a party of its own.
Hip-hop music could be heard from the speakers, while dancers warmed up the crowd. As opposed to other fashion shows, here the atmosphere was truly unique. The audience was standing, with beer bottles in their hands, while watching the models rock the runway. This made us all to think, was it a fashion show or a kegger? Maybe both.
Models walked to the beat of music, dressed from head to toe in black and white. The outfits were ready to wear party looks and included: dark black jeans, sweatshirts and sheer tights. The fashion designer played with textures such as: cotton, denim, leather and embellished some of them with rhinestones and studs.
As for the make-up and hair styles, the models had their eyes accentuated with heavy eyeliner and their hair styles were mostly greased bangs and bobs. Among the famous faces walking the runway were it girls and New York Fashion Week veterans, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid.
When a party is great, there is no need for an after party. Alexander Wang managed to prove this with his exclusive NYFW runway presentation. He showed us that you do not need colors to light up the party, just black and white outfits, great music, awesome models and a public to enjoy all of this.
With only three days left of NYFW, we are curious to see what surprises it will bring us and whether the other shows will manage to beat this one.
