Guests were fascinated by each new piece that paraded down the runway, leaving them wondering what wa s going to come next.

Malan Breton

Malan Breton rocked the legendary Hammerstein Ballroom for Fashion Week, once again proudly wearing his Taiwanese influences on his sleeve(he traveled to Taiwan in recent years, and did a short film about his journey there, and it’s a trip that still heavily influences his work). While this show focused mostly on his more formal wear like flowing dresses for the women and smart silk suits for the men, he also took a break in the middle to show a few swim/sportswear pieces. Also in somewhat of a break for him, he spiked his mix of models with celebrities including the show-stopping finale of Nene Leakes. And in an even more dramatic touch, all the male models came out at the end wearing his new underwear brand, while Malan strutted down between them to meet Leakes on the end of the runway.

Nicole Miller

Bohemian, fun, funky and colorful are a few words that sum up the Nicole Miller show for NYFW. Colorful is a bit of an understatement actually; “bright” might be a better word, as a lot of these looks all but popped off the runway. From floor length dresses to mini skirts and jackets, most everything featured patterned prints with triangles and other geometrics. NicoleMiller.com for more.

Vivienne Tam literally shot for the stars with her NASA influenced New York Fashion Week collection. Inspired by Houston, Texas, the collection even featured the logos of Houston icons like NASA and the Houston Rodeo, and the show was introduced with a pre-recorded video message from astronaut Tracy Dyson. The clothes themselves looked fun, comfortable and loose, with ruffles and glittering belts and tons of playful touches; one dress was literally a roadmap of Houston hotspots, another was shimmering silver that had 1960’s retro vibe. The models mostly booked it down the runway without pause, although a few stopped to whip out custom cell phones, with the last girl stopping to take a selfie. Vivienne Tam is always a delight and this show had a nice, concise and surprising concept.

The Rookie USA

No doubt the cutest event of New York Fashion Week, The Rookie USA show let the kids shine, as the children of celebrities ruled the runway with just as much poise and (sometimes more) personality than their adult counterparts. Featuring brands like Levis, Nike, Hurley and Converse, and benefiting the PitCCh In Foundation, it was all for a good cause. Sure there were a ton of celebrities in the audience, but it was really the kids who shone, and it was hard not to smile watching them mug, dance, cartwheel and in some cases literally flip down the runway.
