NYFW: Finally For The People (AKA Us!)
We’ve always loved NYFW from afar. We look forward to the magnificent looks worn by fashion royalty alongside the rich and famous every year. But this year, it’s totally different. We’re obsessed with the accessibility of both the shows, and the fashion itself.
J. Crew veered away from the traditional use of models in their runway show and picked from...real people! With models ranging from 13 to 70, there was v much diversity on the roster. Let’s hope other brands will take a lesson from the J. Crew playbook because there was nothing unprofesh looking about their models.
Christian Siriano, no stranger to inclusive fashion, included five plus size models in his show this year. So casual. That’s the best part of this...he’s casually the most inclusive and still totally chic designer maybe EVER. TG for you, Christian.
Oh, and don’t worry about being patient, our fave designers are making all of our millennial dreams come true by making them immediately shoppable. Yeah, no waiting months before the designs become available, our faves are ready to be shopped RN.
From J. Crew’s use of real people as models, Christian Siriano’s plus size models, and the immediate availability of lines from brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren, fashion week is feeling a little more within reach to all of us (fashion obsessed) little people.
