Another NYFW has come and gone! I still can’t believe that I have been attending shows since 2014! I can still remember my first show like it was yesterday. Through the years I have learned so much about this industry; which unfortunately can be very shallow and un inclusive. Well I am hoping to change that! This fashion week was Spring/Summer 2020 with many shows being held at Spring Studios which is an event venue on 6 St. Johns Lane in Tribeca and Pier 59 Studios in Chelsea, and of course the bigger designers had off site locations for their shows. I honestly miss the days that fashion week was in one central location like Bryant Park or Lincoln Center!! Please Lord bring those days back!!!
First Show –
EDGII AW19 Runway Show
An array of recycled furs on down jackets with glittery boots paraded down the catwalk on September 5thin New York City at Spring Studios. Winter is coming and EDGII did not disappoint! They came to bring the warmth for ALL the fashionistas out there. The collection which was inspired by “Power Vibe” encourages girls all over the world, to be themselves, and express their inner self.
“They are confident, brave and independent, which should be celebrated to let their inner beauty shine.” – EDGII
EDGII is an Australian brand that was launched in 2015 with their first release in footwear. The brand has since expanded to parkas, downs and furs.
“This season’s garments parkas and down jackets especially focus on creating different looks with various elements and styles to create a piece for every girl in every style” – EDGII
EDGII certainly brought the heat (literally) for their Autumn/Winter show, with functional fabrics, handcrafted beading and detail embroidery. I can honestly say I loved the whole collection and I am Looking forward to AW20!
“When the sun, the moon and the stars meet, and the brilliance shines; ombre hand-painted flowers and monogram patterns can be seeing throughout our entire collection which adds a more mysterious yet contemporary vibe to the garments.” – EDGII

Second Show :
The brand Elf Sack made their NYFW debut on 9/7 at 547 West 28th Street in New York. Elf Sack was founded in 2006 in Nanjing Jiangsu a province of China. Passionate bold, fun designs were presented for their Spring/Summer 2020 Collection. The brand was inspired by the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac in eastern China, which extends to flowers, landmarks and crops in Chinese cities. A mix of street and chic are the words that I would use to describe this collection. Models walked down the runway in an array of colorful mixed printed oversized coats, sweaters, dresses and skirts.
“The choice of fabrics focuses on texture and comfort. Vintage jacquard fabrics, glossy silk, sweet lace and chiffon and neutral jeans that are delicate.”
