Oxford Fashion Studio Brings the Heat for Fall/Winter 2018
For the Fall/Winter 2018 season, New York Fashion Week featured several new designers from around the globe at the Oxford Fashion Studio.The brands included in this presentation were Nandi Madida, Jef Albea, Tone Fitness Apparel, Annie’s Creations, Coco & Illia, Nannerwave, Rachel Pollak, Tdazzleme, Shabeeg, Mirochoa, and B. Zarina.
Consisting of vibrant hues of oranges, reds, pinks, blues, and every color in between, the runway was graced with evening wear, athleisure, and tailored silhouettes undeniably appealed to many in the audience.
At The Manor, we love diversity and these shows were the epitome of just that while giving fashion week viewers the chance to experience cultural and clothing trends from around the world.
One designer who especially stood was Coco & Illia, who aims to give women confidence and empowerment through their garments and definitely embraces women of all shapes and sizes. Adorning their clothes with sequins, see-through tops, and sweet graphics, the label stood out for its interpretation of tasteful sensuality. Comprised of pastels, mesh, cut out details, flared pant legs and fur, all the materials needed to make a girl feel good in her own skin and embrace her inner diva were present– and we always appreciate a body-positive designer.
The minimalist aesthetic is a popular trend that many are trying to achieve in their lifestyle. So if you are looking for something along those lines, Nannerwave delivers. The show featured tailored pants, hoodies, and shirts in men’s silhouettes that a woman can wear for that classic, oversized boyfriend look. The collection was all about crisp lines, neutrals, exaggerated sleeves and a cool effortlessness which is always the wave in today’s fast-paced society.
As athleisure is still a popular outfit trend, Tone Fitness Apparel redefined the idea of workout wear that doesn’t look as if you’ve just come from the gym. Some of the pieces being a pink cold-shoulder sweatshirt dress that allows for comfort and style, relaxed sweatpants and staple crop tops which we can all appreciate for those casual and lazy days. All in all, the Oxford Fashion Studio has opened the gateway for many other smaller designers and has given the public a fresh set of designers to consider for their next ensembles.
