With the end of New York Fashion Week came the start of Lingerie Fashion Week. The runways and collection presentations in New York City highlight Fall/Winter Collections for 2014. The fashion event ran from February 20th-22nd in downtown Manhattan. Our New York Fashion Photography team was invited to this exclusive lingerie event and we had a wonderful time photographing and reporting on the newest trends for intimates. One collection that caught our attention in particular was the FYI by Dani Read AW14 collection.
FYI by Dani Read first made its debut at Brooklyn’s Williamsburg Fashion Week in February 2011. Since then, the label has continued its dedication to the femme fatale archetype with the motto, “Women Are Weapons”. The AW14 collection at Lingerie Fashion Week featured similar styling to her other lines with minimal use of patterns anchored by black and white fabric, harnesses and visible hardware. The items were styled with a hip haphazard look complete with leather mini gloves, mismatched stockings and used sneakers/creeper shoes. The hair and make-up also fit the line with smudgy/androgynous inspired styling.
FYI by Dani Read was an excellent choice for a featured designer for lingerie fashion week. BDSM inspired lingerie is certainly having a moment with celebrities like Beyonce, Rihanna and Lady Gaga all wearing similar brands like Bordelle at their performances. The only issue designers like FYI by Dani Read will face will be knock-off designers and other similar-minded lingerie labels, like Bordelle, who already have lock on the S&M lingerie look. Our fashion team predicts that this look will only get bigger with the best seller, “Fifty Shades of Grey” hitting cinemas later this year. As a Brooklyn photography studio, we will always support other artists from our borough and can’t wait to see what the future holds for FYI by Dani Read.
