For fashion-lovers, one of the most exciting and long-awaited times of the year happens every fall: Fashion Month. Eye-catching street style is everywhere. Celebrities are showing off their finest couture. This is when you get legendary wardrobe moments from the likes of Lori Harvey, Emily Ratajkowski, and new parents Rihanna and A$AP Rocky. This year, the month kicked off with New York Fashion Week, which was only the second in-person spring/summer season since before the coronavirus pandemic began. This season’s designers and street style stars delivered serious sartorial inspiration, demonstrating a newfound sense of excitement for the fashion season and dressing up to go out. The many runways were filled with creative interpretations of color and texture, like at Simon Miller’s presentation, which boasted cutout dresses with an unexpected take on fringe.
During the spring/summer 2023 season, designers pushed the boundaries with playful presentations and lush locations. Take, for instance, Collina Strada, who invited attendees to a vibrant, plant-filled escape at the Brooklyn Greenway, where she went on to showcase a butterfly-inspired collection. There was also Love Shack Fancy, which created a lively outdoor party and presented a collection full of tulle, pink hues, and ball gowns at the Cooper Hewitt Museum. One factor that switched up this season? Established designers like Marni and Fendi, which usually show in Milan Fashion Week, decided to venture across the Atlantic to show in New York City instead.
From household names like Kate Spade and Christian Siriano to revolutionary designers like Fe Noel and Victor Glemaud, keep scrolling for all the designers who brought to life their creative visions for warm-weather dressing in the new year.
