NYFW SS18 Part 1 Recap: Vibrant colors and textures

The SS18 NYFW was filled with exciting collections and moments. The week is always one of my favorite times of the year. Check out one of my first recaps down below!


Chocheng presented a beautiful SS18 collection at Skylight Clarkson. It’s inspired by the golden age of Haute Couture from 1947-1957. I’m fascinated by its range of fabrics that include Cotton bouclé, tweed, embroidered silk lace and handmade embellishments. I also loved the color palette that included red, lilac, pink, and cream. The collection offers a mix of knits and separates and is alluring, sophisticated, and retro chic. It’s a modern twist on a classically elegant silhouette.

My favorite looks include a lavender and white striped sweater over a white knit dress, a pink boucle jacket over a pink and white striped top and black shorts, a lilac sweater over a lilac knit dress, and a white jacket with fan embellishments paired with white shorts. The looks are subtly dramatic, chic, and graceful!


The Supima competition runway show celebrated its 10th anniversary at Pier 59 Studios. It was hosted by June Ambrose and Bibhu Montpartu served as the competition’s mentor. The competition showcased the SS18 collections from 7 designers at top fashion schools nationwide. Each of the collections featured different elements such as geometric detailing, romantic accents, and innovative fabric pairings. Alyssa Wardrop from FIT was the contest winner. Congrats to Alyssa and all of the finalists for creating unique and beautiful collections!

Vicky Zhang displayed a unique SS18 Collection at Skylight Clarkson. The designer featured mother and child looks on the runway. Both boys and girls walked in synchrony with mother-type models. Many components in the collection stand out such as draped sleeves, capes, innovative slits, embroidered lace, and vibrant colors. The looks are elegant, whimsical, and classic. I couldn’t get over how cute the children looked in the mommy and me outfits! The show ended with the children dancing to an upbeat song. This ending along with the beautiful looks kept everyone in great spirits at NYFW!
