Fashion Club is a great opportunity for students to share ideas, learn new things, and explore their interests in the fashion industry. This is Fashion Club’s third year at HHS and we’re already looking forward to our annual spring fashion show. We’ll be having multiple fundraisers and events throughout the year to help fund the fashion show and we all can’t wait!
This month New York Fashion week took place from September 10th-17th in the Big Apple. Featured designers like Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Herve Leger, Public School and Rachel Zoe displayed their new collections. Those to walk the runway in these trendy pieces were famous models like Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Candice Swanepoel, Karlie Kloss, Lily Aldridge, Stella Maxwell, Hailey Baldwin, and Ashley Graham.
Designers seemed to branch out from their similar inspirations and created a number of new pieces which showed up more than once, signaling a roundup of trends to look forward to. Many designers channeled the vibrant shades and easygoing spirit of the Caribbean with hibiscus prints, colorful crocheted pieces, bucket hats and citrus shades. Styles taken from the ’70s were everywhere this season, models sported boho maxis, flared pants, fringed hemlines and tie-dye patterns. Palettes for this year’s Fashion Week included warm, feel-good hues such as blues, buttery yellows, and pale pinks paired with common neutrals.
Stripes and clothing that skimmed both the collarbone and shoulders were frequent along with luxurious (and expensive) pajamas. To go with the variety of outfits, the models typically sported fresh faces and a defined brow in intentions of keeping it simple.
