New York Fashion Week is officially over and we can now focus on London Fashion Week! However, I feel pretty much obliged to bring you the highlights from the fall/winter shows. When I started this blog back in November, I backdated and included all of the posts I wrote since September 2017 when I made the decision to launch a blog. I intend to continue this tradition until I can or I’m told off by you guys! Ahead, this year’s New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter ’18 highlights, followed by the compulsory gallery with the best picks!
New York Fashion Week FW ’18 Highlights
- Audra Danielle Noyes’s latest collection was inspired by seasons of uncertainty.
- Grey Jason Wu’s secondary line was held in the dining room of his beautiful downtown apartment.
- Lisa Perry brought a little optimism by keeping her Fall offerings light, happy, and upbeat.
- Rachel Zoe doubled down this season – flares got wider, prints got louder and plunges got deeper.
- Alena Akhmadullina gave us her usual dose of extravagance – intricate embroideries and rich furs were presented at this year’s New York Fashion Week.
- Rachel Antonoff’s Fall 2018 Royal Bitch collection was inspired by portraits of staid royals pictured alongside their trusty pooches. Ahem… If you say so, Rachel, if you say so!
- Shoji’s collection was all about the #MeToo movement – bold and unapologetic; being sexy and provocative doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be taken seriously! Yes, Shoji, yes!
- Ulla Johnson’s presence at New York Fashion Week is a fairly recent development, but she actually launched her line 20 years ago. She decided to put some pants on her Fall runway while looking back to the late-’90s genesis of her label.
- Designers Mijia Zhang and Wei Lin’s PH5 collection is designed by women for women, inspiring classic ladies to get a little wild.

- Rebecca de Ravenel’s Fall 2018 was still very much designed for the jewellery lover, but with a more magpie-like approach to print, texture, and colour.
