As the familiar saying typically goes, “All good things must come to an end”! That saying is never more true now as New York Fashion Week has wrapped up. In the first half we experienced Christian Siriano’s size inclusive runway show with models walking in bright colors and lots of tulle. We equally saw Prabal Gurung present a bold statement as he joyfully celebrated his ten-year anniversary. Missed these key moments? Don’t worry, I captured them for you here!
It’s clear there were unforgettable moments from the first few days of New York Fashion Week but the final days truly topped it all off. Eye catching shows like Alice and Olivia’s that prominently displayed bold statement pieces and tense color blocking in their less than traditional runway show. Badgley Mischka, as always stole the show with mixed prints and bold printed bathing suits.
Here is all the notable show stopping moments in the concluding days of New York Fashion Week that made me proud to be a fashion enthusiast:

This marks the end of New York Fashion Week! We can expect Spring 2020 to be filled with bright coloring and textured fabrics. There are so many trends to be picked up from this season but the number one trend that’s here to stay is a powerful orange that demands a room.
