Finally, part 2 of my NYFW Fall 2017 recap is up! This post covers the rest of the shows and events I attended, and if you haven’t read part 1 yet, check it out here. Day 3 of NYFW started off with one of my favorite NYFW events, Shopstyle Social House. This is basically an event where all the bloggers can come together and mingle, borrow clothes, get hair/makeup done, and just have a good time. Unfortunately I had too good of a time and neglected to take much photos, whoops! After Social House, I hit up Georgine, a show that I really enjoyed last year. Georgine always has super wearable pieces that have a sense of edginess and effortless cool. I loved the dark purples this time around and the sheer mesh and printed coats.
After Georgine, it was time for Francesca Liberatore, a show that I was looking forward to as it was my first time attending. I loved the more eclectic vibe of the collection, especially the “Save Freedom of Speech” jacket and fabulous fur coat.
Leanne Marshall always puts on a good show (see my experience of her SS17 collection here) and I can never get enough of her ethereal dresses. I was pleasantly surprised by the Fall 2017 collection as she stepped out of the box a little and tried a few new things, such as sleek separates and bolder colors that would be perfect for a city girl. Of course there were still her signature dresses, and I really enjoyed the Victorian details, dangly earrings, and romantic hairstyles.
Taking a break from the shows, on Day 5 I was treated to a complementary hair-do and champagne at DreamDry with my Style Collective ladies. So while most ladies got braids or wavy/curly hair-dos, of course I had to be difficult and asked for a bow bun on top of my head. Little did I know how difficult this would be with my thin Asian hair! It took a few tries and lots of hairspray to finally achieve this bow hairstyle. Kudos to my hairstylist Lauren for her patience and determination. It was all worth it for me in the end, because let’s face it who doesn’t want a bow on top of their head? 🙂
Day 6 (aka Valentine’s Day) started off at the different kind of show sponsored by Samsung at FTL Moda. The FTL Moda shows are an interactive exhibit featuring independent and up-and-coming designers. I liked being able to touch the cloths and experience them up close, and in honor of the holiday I decided to dress up like a doll and wear a pink coat and bow in my hair.
One of my last shows of NYFW was Anniesa Hasibuan, the first Indonesian Hijab designer to show at NYFW. I attend her show last year and was blown away by the intricate details, gorgeous beading, and super glamorous designs. Her show this time around was even better, captivating me at every look. From the velvet to the pearls to the ruffles, I was in awe at Anniesa’s abilities and felt deeply touched by the collection. It was definitely a great way to end NYFW Fall 2017.
