NYFW – SS18

Ahh, New York Fashion Week. What’s more fun than a train ride to the city? Watching fabulous shows and presentations where we just drool and daydream about owning just one piece from each collection is! Here’s a recap of some of our fun at NYFW this season…

When our new gal pal Gina Duckworth cordially invited us to the Next Artists Fashion Week Beauty Lounge (spearheaded by Gina and her team) we cordially replied, “YES, PLEASE!!” An afternoon of complimentary services provided by the Next Artists team (best in the biz) including makeup, manicures, cryo facials, massages, and so much more, along with the most amazing goodie bags – well, do you know us?! 

Dead of Summer actress Amber Coney and The Flash actress Violett Beane (Jesse “Quick” Wells) were sitting a few seats down from us at the Fashion Palette show during NYFW – so naturally, we threw some popcorn at them and loudly whispered, “Pssst, you guys, can we do a quick interview and photo shoot after the show??” – to which they agreed. Ok, so we actually went through their super lovely agent, Nilda Carrazana who helped us all connect after the buzz of seeing our first swimwear collection (it was a first for us all).

Thankfully swimwear season is almost behind us here in LC (we’ve already switched over to comfort eating), but it was very much “now” at the Fashion Palette New York’s Australian Swim/Resort wear runway show! Nine different Australian designers showed off their SS17 collections at Pier 59. 

What a pleasure it was to attend the Josie Natori Spring/Summer 2017 Presentation held at the impressive Waterfall Mansion during NYFW. The alternative to showing a collection on a runway, a presentation allows guests to get up close and personal! Those models are good sports and reminded us of the Queen’s Guard, with all of us staring at them. We did manage to get one model to smile at us though…scroll on and enjoy the collection. We loved it!

Art Hearts Fashion always puts on an amazing fashion show during NYFW, so we had to attend again this season! If you don’t know about AHF, their website gives a little recap, “Art Hearts Fashion was created by designer and philanthropist Eric Rosete in 2011. Events are a leading platform for designers and artists to showcase their collections in a contemporary fashion week setting.” This season they will showcase over 20 designers at 5 of New York’s iconic locations.

We first heard of Leanne Marshall in 2008 when she took the season 5 win on Project Runway. Since her win, she has taken the fashion industry by storm with romantic, whimsical, and earthy collections. Unlocking Litchfield was invited backstage to meet Leanne for a little one on one at the Art Beam gallery in Manhattan at New York Fashion Week.

When we arrived, we walked through a dreamy mist created by a smoke machine into a dimly lit gallery that led us backstage. There was quite a flurry of activity, yet quiet in a way; a focused energy on the task at hand, to introduce Leanne’s 2016 spring/summer collection.
