NYFW F/W ’16: NOLCHA From The Front Row, PART II!By Delaina Dixon & Samantha von Sperling | February 26, 2016 | Beauty, Style
During Fashion Week, it can all start to blur together and the clothes start to look the same. Not a NOLCHA Women’s Fall/Winter 2016, presented by Neogrid at ArtBeam. Independent and emerging designers let their imaginations run wild.
At Rohitava Banerjee “The Five Rivers” Fall/Winter 2016 collection, the show, according to the designer, was inspired by Greek tragic mythology. There were vivid shapes, colors and materials that brought to mind fire and water, cultural influences, perhaps even a walk in the clouds of the Himalayas; silhouettes were long and statuesque were striking strutting down the catwalk. The collection had both strength and romantic youthful innocence. The collection was stunning. Some of it even wearable. All of it beautiful.
Intrepid By AO’C offered bold basics in black, white and cream. We loved the strapless jumper with black trouser stripe that can effortlessly transition for day to evening, as well as an electric splash of color in gowns.
Classic menswear shapes get a minimalist girly redo from ALL COMES FROM NOTHING, in the hands of Chinese designer Eva Xu.
Acid brings prints, lace, python and leather together, with lots of belting and grommets for men and women, very comfort chic.
