New York Fashion Week 2019: Your Need To Know Guide

When we think about fashion trends for spring and summer, you are more than likely to picture bright colors, prints, floral patterns and a whole lot of personality. While in our world summer has diminished into fall as we’re starting to swap our sandals for ankle boots, in the world of fashion, summer has just begun. New York Fashion Week has given us a peek into the styles our wardrobes will be influenced by in spring/summer 2020. As always, the runway shows have more than delivered on creativity, passion and abstract looks with so many unique statement pieces and beauty trends to behold.

What is New York Fashion Week?

Running the catwalk since 1943, NYFW is a semi-annual series of events that celebrates outstanding international fashion collections. The collections are showcased to buyers and the press whilst providing couture fashion inspiration to the public.

When is New York Fashion Week?

New York Fashion Week is held in February and September of each year. The most recent event ran from 6th-11th September 2019 showcasing the 2020 stunning spring collections.

Where was New York Fashion Week 2019 held?

New York Fashion Week was held at Spring Studios, 50 Warick Street in 2019.

Who was at New York Fashion Week September 2019?

The biggest names in fashion were turning heads on the runway at NYFW, including the fabulous Victoria Hayes, Bronx & Banco and Bevza – not to mention an array of famous faces that took their seats in the front row this season.

Beauty inspiration we can take from NYFW

Bold makeup trends, diverse hair statements and unique fashion compilations are what make this artistic celebration so special. New York Fashion Week is all about expressing individuality and who you are – while many of the looks showcased were a touch too bold for our tastes, there was plenty of inspiration to be had. We will take you through some of our favourite beauty lessons from the catwalk that you can implement in subtle ways this season.

The updated French manicure
The French manicure is given a renaissance with a chic and imaginative twist. This season has seen shimmered and chevron V tipped alternatives running the show. We all remember the days of perfecting a white thin strip at the tip of our nails – while this was nice while it lasted, it could stand a little more character. The modern take on this classic design plays with colour, shape, design and line thickness to create something that still elevates simplicity, yet adds a light touch of personality. The beauty of this new style is that the potential combinations are endless and you can be styling a fresh, unique design whenever the mood takes you.

How do I modernise my French manicure?

The easiest way to introduce this trend into your repertoire is to mix up the traditional colour combo with coloured tips such as a deep crimson or even black; the contrast creates a statement look. Make subtle changes with the base colour, swap pink hues to opaque nudes or even pick a bold accent colour from your ensemble.

Step out of your comfort zone
The runway was filled with some of the biggest trends from some of the most beloved style decades. Exaggerated shoulders, wild vibrant hues, metallics and taffeta reigned supreme. Jeremy Scott turned many heads with his graphic 80s patterns, which were complemented perfectly with bold eyes. Christian Siriano also made a statement with bright abstract colours, while Pyer Moss let their 70’s rock-n-roll-inspired beauty shake things up on the catwalk with shimmering gem tones that daringly pushed far past the eye with big, structured hairstyles. We absolutely loved the 80’s styling with glossy sleek hair and boxy blazers this season and, while we may not wear such a strong look ourselves, we were inspired by the movement towards choosing larger accessories and bolder makeup to pair with your wardrobe favourites.

Indulge in NYFW Style with Pure Collection

New York Fashion Week may have been all about Spring/Summer 2020, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start implementing some of the key design influences right now. Invest in layers, whether this is taking inspiration from Barragán's power shoulder fit, Proenza Schouler's effortless chic or Kate Spade's casual styling. If you’re looking for a little more structure, remember that blazers have the ability to completely transform any ensemble, they are the ultimate staple for any wardrobe and are versatile enough to dress up or down as part of your off duty wardrobe.

The addition of a relaxed satin blazer is a sophisticated way to introduce sleek satin glamour to any occasion, and looks chic styled with tailored trousers, skirts or showcased over party dresses.

Move out of your comfort zone and be bold by adding some vibrant colour to your wardrobe with a fern green textured blazer.

Black and white were all over the spring/summer 2020 runway, but during New York Fashion Week, we also witnessed a number of spotted creations, like the pretty tulle gowns sprinkled with velvety polka-dots from Wes Gordon for Carolina Herrera. Our washed silk relaxed blouse in mono spot combines both these trends and has a feminine feel you can rework alongside any outfit.
