NYFW Runway favourites, part 1

New York Fashion Week has ended a few days ago and the next one, London FW, is in full action! Fashion statements, surprises, innovations and firm classics are swirling in the air and making everyone in fashion world grasp for air. Everything is so exciting, fresh and fast! The runways and catwalks are dominated by fierce models and with pleasant surprises, such as my favourite show's ever actress Jamie Brewer hitting the runway making history being the first model (role model) to walk on the runway with Down syndrome at Carrie Hammer's fashion show. 
In this article I've gathered my favourite looks on NYFW catwalks, from classic feminine chic of Ralph Lauren and aggressively beautiful Wang. This is the first part (of a total of two) of this article so stay tuned for the second part to discover the other looks I loved from New York Fashion Week's runways!

3.1 Phillip Lim


I must admit, I hadn't heard about 3.1 Phillip Lim since last summer when I noticed that some of my favourite fashion bloggers were rocking his signature bags and then when I was exploring more about his collections I found out that those many handbags I had a crush on were his! 
As for the collection - it remains utterly feminine but with a hint of a rocker chic with the mix of floral and checkered patterns colliding. I must say, this is so my taste. Accents of leather, asymmetrical cuts, dark lip and easy hair = pure, simple love.


BCBG Max Azria


This designer won my heart few weeks ago upon discovering him and his past collections. And this is no different.
First of all, what about the over-the-knee boots? Gorgeous, flattering and so in at the moment.
Second, flowy mini dresses with these random longer layers faking an impression of a summer nights' wind and a feeling of ease and feminity. Whole runway was so light and at the same time strong and powerful. Embroidery on point!


BOSS


No wonder Boss is the boss. Just take a look at these two dresses! Perfectly structured, simple but still eye-catching. Making simple shift dresses look so beautiful is not an easy job but they did it and continue to positively surprise everyone watching.
Plus, those boots and that hairstyle? Just. Awesome.


DIESEL BLACK GOLD


I chose only one photo from the runway because I loved all the looks. Seriously, I couldn't decide between just 2 or 3 or 4. So I just took the one that felt closer to what I personally would choose to wear. All black everything is one of my favourite combinations ever, just like all white everything. A comfy cropped sweater, a top underneath, a leather skater skirt with stud details and oxford shoes are such an effortless and cool combination that would make every girl or woman feel comfortable and rocker-chic. This look just screams "girls rock"! And what about the Elvis-inspired hairdo? Fresh.


Diane von Furstenberg


And speaking about girls rocking, no one does it better than the empress of all women's fashion - Diane von Furstenberg! The creator of the iconic wrap dress rules the runway with her pieces of absoulte feminine awesomeness and lightness and power. Though the V-neckline is not the most flattering neckline for all the women (like me) it still looks wonderful when it is so perfectly measured and cut like on these four dresses I've chosen as my favourites.


Hervé Léger


I've been this designer's fan ever since I discovered what is fashion world, so I'd say for most of my life. I have always loved his feminine textures, lines, bondage-type dresses that hug the figure in all the right places and give even to a bulkier body that feminine touch every girls wants to see on herself at least once in her lifetime if not more. This collection proved to be fun, creative and just perfect. My absolute favourite with the multi-strap heels and boots.


Jeremy Scott

As for the last one of the first part of my favourites, I've chosen the eccentric and always surprising Jeremy Scott. He's the one to make pj-print and childhood memories work on the runway and in the street style world. He's taking a lot of courage in this still a bit conservative fashion world and just provoking everyone with his taste in fashion. And he is owning it. With best pals as Rihanna and Miley Cyrus, he's making history in the fashion world even if some consider him an outcast. He is pure genius and he has the guts to take to runway what he really feels and loves. Even if it is tapestry-looking dresses or teddy bear with mind-f*cking double face (here). Hats off for this guy!

I would love if you would leave in the comment box what were your favourites so far of the already wrapped NYFW and I'll see you later with the second part and more later with my LFW favourites!
Love,
Ieva
