Taking NYFW by Storm

Posted October 9, 2018 by LA Scene in Fashion

This season’s runway was all about taking NYFW by Storm.

This season was full of floral gowns, new age streetwear, and body positivity.

Our team weighs in on the best and most interesting shows we saw this season!

Badgley Mischka

A parade of florals, light pinks, and beautiful gowns graced the runways at Badgley Mischka’s 30th- anniversary celebration during New York Fashion Week. With a dash of romantic femininity and a sprinkle of fairy-tale inspired magic, all the looks embodied the fantasy world of Alice in Wonderland.

Mark Badgley and James Mischka created a whimsical ambiance with a dashing light-colored theme. Models strutted the runway wearing the beautifully cut dresses, a few accompanied by little girls wearing matching gowns. The enchanted show was a perfect complement to their new fragrance launch as well.

Badgley Mischka has adapted to meet their consumer’s needs, but still keeping their classic couture style. Their ready to wear collection had shown how their brand evolved throughout the years. The gowns were heavily appliqued with floral patterns, off the shoulder cuts and suits with shimmering fabrics. Many pieces in the collection featured textured fabrics and feathered linings which were also paired with their remarkable shoes embellished with rhinestones.


Custo Barcelona

This season, designer Custo Dalmau took us on a ride back to the sparkly and chromed-out looks of the 90s. His SS19 collection showed an undoubtedly strong nostalgia for the colors and sheens popular in a previous era.

A big theme on the runways overall was a metallic, almost chrome-like effect. Many other designers, like two Australian designers Bronx and Banco and Elliatt, used sequins to achieve this metallic element, However Dalmau, achieved a similar effect san embellishments.

At Custo Barcelona, oversized chrome jackets were absolutely wearable, and definitely in the running to become the next wear everywhere, multipurpose “denim jacket.”

The colors for the new collection were not as simple as the pastels’ of the past. I truly believe that brighter and deeper colors paired with pastels will now be part of a trendy look. What stood out to me most about the color palette, was that the jewel tones.  While these shades are typically reserved for the winter, around Christmas time, they seemed to be popping up in spring collections now.

Among these jewel tones, one that stood out the most was a gorgeous teal. The darker and duller of teals is something that could still be saved for winter, but there were several outfits that incorporated dark, yet bright hues of the color, almost resembling the sea. Designers such as GEOJ Official and Zimmermann were among the few to showcase the trendy teal shade popularized in the 90s. Fashion is looking super retrospective in the coming future!



Known for their denim styles, L’Agence did not disappoint this season.  Showing up a wide range of flared and unique pants.   Featuring bold unique prints, which were a welcomed surprise for spring.

The pops of color in the clothing were mirrored by the bold makeup.  We love how they styled the beauty to complement the collections so well!


Noon by Noor

Featuring flowing gowns and casual outfits, Noon by Noor showcased a stunning collection for all occasions.  Inspiration for the collection was drawn from both Eastern and Western influences with an emphasis on sharp tailoring, clean silhouettes and the label’s always remarkable attention to detail.

The color palette was mostly shades of cream and pastels.  A few stand out pieces included the most stunning shirt dresses that were cut to the knee, and faux caped dresses with deep “v” necklines that we couldn’t take our eyes off of.

Prabal Gurung

It was another successful show indeed of Prabal Gurung’s Spring Summer 2019. The crowd braced themselves as Joan Smalls opened the show along with the infamous Hadid siblings- Gigi, Bella, and Anwar.

Gurung’s collection consisted of primary colors which were out of this world vibrant. Think of bright reds mixed with royal blues, complementing each other in a gorgeous pattern. While it may not sound like a great pairing, these surprising colors and patterns were perfection.

He was able to keep his signature style, edgy yet sophisticated. What stood out the most to us was the plaid wrap around blazer. The color block detail on the garment, consisting of plaid and black with padded shoulders and a wraparound tie belt make it wearable from day to night.

Gurung’s SS19 designs embraced and sent out a message of diverse representation. It was not just about his bright color palette, but also a bricolage of ruffled hems and cutouts. His message to his audience was expressed very well through designs. He embodied his style with  substance.

Pamella Roland

Known for her head turning dresses Pamella Roland surprised us with many more pants in this collection. The season’s collection was inspired by the tranquil, colorful, scenery, and architecture of Bali. Rolland wanted to channel the aura of the island using color, textures, and embroideries, while staying true to their customer base.

Bold and soft colors are used to represent the water and wildlife found on the island.  The highlighter yellow crepe suit lined with matching pearls is the perfect example of the use of color to channel the sights and sounds of dreamy, tropical Bali.


Creating tasteful pieces with the modern woman in mind, this young Canadian designer is quickly gaining a reputation for her clean, bold and timeless style sense. The SS19 collection featured a clean, relaxed aesthetic. Taking inspiration from the devotional music of the Sufis,  Nonie showcased lots of easy to wear, flowing clothing perfect for the warmer temperatures.
