Stylish collections and tech-forward events took a spotlight during NYFW. Take a look at some notable highlights:
Katie Gallagher showcased her “True Red” Fall 2018 collection at Mailroom in the Financial District. It explores deep hues that can exhibit wildness and death simultaneously. The collection uses heavy wool, velvet, and sheer mesh. Alluring tops are paired with ultra-fitted skirts that are complement red military berets. My favorite looks included: a black sheer top with a wrapped sleeve paired with a black wool side-tied skirt and polka dot tights; a black wool shrug over a black bra paired with a matching sheer skirt; and black wool and sheer top paired with a black wool pencil skirt and red leather leggings. The collection is sensual, dark, and stylish!
Arianne Elmy presented her first collection at 151 Gallery in Chelsea. The collection carries a retro chic vibe with a focus on ruffles, shimmer, and side cutouts. My favorite looks included a paillette sequin mini dress, a denim bustier top paired with a mint ruffle skirt, a light blue organza beaded tee paired with mint strap pants, and a hunter green pantsuit with shoulder cutouts. What a super feminine, sophisticated, and playful collection!

Tech Style NYC, an event that brings together fashion, technology, and sustainability brands, took place at the Fashion Class in Midtown. Participating brands included Cuvée Beauty, Dress Code, Boxed Water, Beau Brummell, and Sheree Cosmetics. Each brand rep was informative and resourceful.
