Fashion never sleep and certainly a little snow didn't frighten the magnitude of stylists, editors, photographers, bloggers and celebrities strutting toward their seats for the Thomas Wylde Fall/Winter 2016 Runway show during NYFW.
The venue was all the historical glamour, situated inside the Skylight at Moynihan Station Posta Office. The interior arrangement was quite pristine, with a TRESemmé hair bar - in case one needs a quick blow-dry restyling before the next show. An "E!" sponsored interactive runway where everyone can record, email and share their 8 seconds of runway spotlight. While waiting for the Thomas Wylde show to begin, I sipped on a tall glass of water in a press designated lounge, vibrantly decorated with framed provocative editorials of supermodels Kate Moss, Joan Smalls, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington. The lush decor provided courtesy of Fendi Casa, with a contemporary concept design of exotic fur covered sofas, pillows in zebra and bright yellow rabbit skins.
Once inside the "The Dock" the fashion show was soon to begin: the lights dimmed, high-energy music played and the first model emerged wearing a vibrant crimson plush fur-collared cashmere cape. The new Fall/Winter 2016, "90291" & "Through the Looking Glass" Capsule collection - collaboration with Walt Disney was definitely something out of a fairy tale. The full collection followed a "Red, White and Black" color scheme, and included an array of sharp menswear tailored coats with crystal embellished sleeves, opulent fox Fur capes with detachable collars, cocktail dresses with plunging V necklines and studded mini-skirts. The models clad in the eclectic glamorous collection emerged one by one for the runway finale. They paced down the runway together as the audience applauded the designer as she bowed in gratitude at the head of the runway.
After the show I went backstage and was happy to meet the creative director of Thomas Wylde – Jene Park. I compliment her on the incredible designs, collection and show. Jene Park was quite bubbly, excited and thrilled at the response she received, giving interviews to press and posing for photos. The event was star studded including attending celebrities Nicole Scherzinger of The Pussycat Dolls, Olivia Culpo, Nicky Hilton, Chantel Jeffries, Karrueche Tran, Jane Notar whom all came to show their support wearing designs from the Thomas Wylde collection.
It was an amazing treat to attend the Thomas Wylde show - a Special Thank you to NewYorkDress.com for this treat. NYFW is always such an exciting and thrilling time of the year, during which all the fashion devotees and professionals come together in celebration and support of the new collections. I will admit NYFW feels like New Years Eve, but better because it happens twice a year and the thrill can be relived with each collection shown.
Until next Fashion Week darlings!
