Romeo Hunte was named WWD’s 2016 designer to watch and its easy to see why. His spring 2019 collection was surfwear inspired collection with neoprene. There were highlighter colors, sequin emojis and faux fur trim, all brooklyn inspired. I saw some complaints that this collection was similar to his menswear showed in June and that with runways becoming more often coed why not just show them together. This is a fair point, but that’s also a lot of unnessecary pressure, especially if the company is focused on using a see now/buy now method.

The Carolina Herrera runway had great skirts and plenty of different ways to wear them, but the winners were the gowns. There was a dress for any and every occasion. In an array of color from dreamy to practical, polka dot or floral, collared to off shoulder, pick a dress any dress; you might even want two.

Veronica Beard showcased her collection in a greenhouse which I adored as a background. Plaids, lace leopard print and sequins were mixed and matched to create fresh and sharp combinations.

Zero+Maria shared a relaxed presentation made with organic linen and denim that was certified gold. Gold certified means it’s made from organic cotton grown without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, using the cleanest indigo-dyeing process available. (Thank you to Vogue for that specification.) This trendy, urban collection had great colors and was modeled by women of all ages, which was pretty poignant.

Anna Sui was inspired by the 1955 film Kismet, that takes you to a grand bazaar in a far away land. The collection has a rich palette and plenty of spunk. Crushed velvet bucket hats to turbans, spirited tie dye, leather caftans with shell jewelry, hawaiian print tops and silk cowboy fringe buttondowns were all in the musing. Choose a chiffon or starfish embellished dress, paired with a fishermens vest and go explore somewhere. This line was perfection all the way down to the Tevas.

Another travel inspired collection at New York Fashion Week came from Alice+ Olivia. Places and faces are what its all about. Trot around the globe to Paris, Provence, Marrakech, Positano, Careyes & Tokyo, wherever your heart wants to wander, really. The third eye clutch was spectacular.

Naeem Khan Spring 2019 was a runway heavy on evening attire inspired by his heritage from traditional garments of India as well as popular looks of different eras. Fashions included single shouldered gowns with sweeping skirts, tasteful cutouts, plunging necklines, boxy shapes, ruffly capes and cold shoulders. The long sleeve minis were my favorite. There were a few unnessecary see through styles, but over all the collection had great color and a jaunty spirit.

And cue the applause for Michael Kors. One thing that can get lost in fashion is fun and whimsy. Nyfw had many lines with a shortage of these qualities but MK delievered. He showcased outfits you want to wear from beach club totes to breezy multicolor skirts to eyelet dresses, even floral swim caps. Anything you might need is here, so color me happy. Whatever your summer wardrobe needs, Michael Kors has you covered. Just add sun and sand.
