New York Fashion Week may have technically ended, but the impact of those seven days will stick with me for a while. Between the shows and presentations, the street style, and the overall sentiment around the city that week, the takeaway (for me at least) was that while Europe is cool and all, don’t sleep on the brands of NYC.
From Khaite’s stunning runway debut and Area’s epic show that nearly monopolized Instagram for the night to the Wardrobe.NYC event that even scored a now-rare and coveted Gigi Hadid appearance to the street style stars wearing those lesser-known brands such as Priscavera and Ratio et Motus equally as much as the big-name logos we all recognize, it felt like a new era in fashion that put New York brands ahead of many of the greats of years past. So much so that I was inspired to round up some of my favorites that might not be on your radar quite yet but seriously should be. So to read about and shop the eight New York brands that the fashion world is all about right now, just keep scrolling.
