Highlights from New York Fashion Week January 2014

Fashion Week has finally left New York City and it’s now in full swing in London, England. Our New York fashion photographers had a great time enjoying all the excitement of the weeklong fashion event, despite the arctic temperatures and slush-covered sidewalks. Since many people were unable to travel to Manhattan for the runway shows, our Le Image Inc fashion team has created a list of the NY Fashion Week’s biggest moments.

  1. Rodarte’s Star Wars Inspired AW14 Collection– The fashion world is all abuzz over Rodarte’s Star Wars inspired Fall/Winter collection. Their gowns feature prints of Yoda, the Death Star, and other images from the classic film series. The collection, although polarizing, has been celebrated for its absurdity. It will be interesting to see which celebrities will wear these gowns for the red carpet.
  2. DVF Celebrates 40 Years in Fashion– Fashion designer, Diane von Furstenberg, ended her runway show with all her models smiling and wearing 15 golden wrap dresses.  The designer created the iconic dress in 1974 and it has become a staple of American sportswear ever since. Diane von Furstenberg explains that the wrap dress is timeless because, “…it’s a wonderful way to be proper and sexy”.
  3. Thom Browne’s “Wicked Nun” Runway– American fashion designer, Thom Browne, ruled the runway with his sculptural design and minimalist palette. The avant-garde styling truly made his AW14 collection a showstopper.
  4. Streaker at Prabal Gurung’s Runway– Fashionistas were agasp as a man wearing nothing but a crown, a robe and socks ran across the runway during Gurung’s AW14 show. He was quickly captured by security but not before enjoying a brief spotlight on the stage. Prabal Gurung and his guests made light of the event and wore crowns that matched the streaker’s at Gurung’s fashion week party later that night.

New York Fashion Week is always exciting and inspiring. We can’t to see how these runway trends will trickle down into ready-to-wear fashions and how other NY photographers will capture these exciting new looks through fashion photography.
