And it’s a wrap for NY Fashion Week of more model diversity than ever
New York Fashion Week wrapped up with Rihanna’s outre Brooklyn party unveiling her new Savage X Fenty lingerie line, snatching an honour traditionally the preserve of creme-de-la-creme designer Marc Jacobs.
There were bright colours galore. Yellows, mustards and chartreuse were on display at Carolina Herrera and Kate Spade.
Gigi Hadid, pictured right, modelled in Michael Kors Collection Spring 2019 Runway Show in New York, dubbed Sunny Side Up. Matthew Adams Dolan sported flourescent yellow.
Ralph Lauren marked half a century in the business by inviting A-list stars such as Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and Kanye West to a black-tie do in Central Park.
France’s Longchamp turned 70, hosting celebrities at the World Trade Center, while Germany’s Escada also jetted Stateside to celebrate 40.
Models of colour were centre stage like never before. Pyer Moss went for an all-black line-up. Hugo Boss, Kate Spade and Tory Burch had diverse casting.
Older women also strutted their stuff at Sies Marjan and Maria Cornejo. Friends and relatives of the designers walked at Vaquera.
