SWEET’N’RAW’S NYFW COVERAGE: The Field

Are we excited or what? NYFW has finally kicked off. Who can even remeber those Super Bowl moments? Tomorrow, the streets of NYC will be filled with bloggers, models, journalists and more, all of them ready for exceptional dispays of Autumn/Winter fashion. As you have probably noticed by now, I never get to the point without a proper introduction (virtue or defect I got from my dear Momma). That is why today I have prepared for you a baseball themed, FWNY, designer analysis and tomorrow we will be starting with fresh, out-of-the-runway reviews and the looks I have already in the oven for you. NYFW’s show round-up is always interesting and youthful, it’s always exciting to see the new materials, prints and trends designers showcase on their catwalks. Shall we? Most certainly!

Here you will find the big names, the ones that have been around for years and years. The sharks or the big shots are always a big part of Fashion Week, wether you like Ralph Lauren’s classic style, Anna Sui’s excentric touch, Calvin Klein’s minimalism or the exquisite circus Marc Jacobs always puts together.

MARC JACOBS  Creative Director: Marc Jacobs  –  Owner: LVMH  –  Start date: 1986

RALPH LAUREN  Creative Director: Ralph Lauren  –  Owner: Ralph Lauren  –  Start date: 1969

OSCAR DE LA RENTA  Creative Director: Oscar de la Renta  –  Owner: Oscar de la Renta  –  Start date: 1965

CALVIN KLEIN  Creative Director: Francisco Costa  –  Owner: Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation  –  Start date: 1968

DONNA KARAN  Creative Director: Donna Karan  –  Owner: LVMH  –  Start date: 1985

ANNA SUI  Creative Director: Anna Sui  –  Owner: Anna Sui  –  Start date: 1980

MVP says it all, the most valuable players on the field. Fearless when it comes to trying new things, smart, creative and beyond fabulous. Proenza Schouler texture and material usage always manages to drop our jaws. Jason Wu has perfect tailoring skills and Rodarte’s girls always take us to their very unique fantasyland.

ALEXANDER WANG  Creative Director: Alexander Wang  –  Owner: Alexander Wang  –  Start date: 2007

PROENZA SCHOULER  Creative Director: Jack McCollough, Lazaro Hernandez  –  Owner: Jack McCollough, Lazaro Hernandez, Andrew Rosen  –  Start date: 2003

PRABAL GURUNG  Creative Director: Prabal Gurung   –  Start date: 2009

JASON WU  Creative Director: Jason Wu  –  Owner: Jason Wu  –  Start date: 2006

THAKOON  Creative Director: Thakoon Panichgul  –  Owner: Thakoon Panichgul  –  Start date: 2004

RODARTE  Creative Director: Kate and Laura Mulleavy  –  Owner: Kate and Laura Mulleavy  –  Start date: 2005

They deserve a special mention, a ticket to the All-star game. Michael Kors constantly delivers, Phillip Lim is always pretty and new and Helmut Lang, well Helmut Lang speaks for itself.

HELMUT LANG  Creative Director:  Michael y Nicole Colovos  –  Owner: Link Theory Holdings Co.  –  Start date: 1986

3.1 PHILLIP LIM  Creative Director:  Phillip Lim  –  Owner: Phillip Lim, Wen Zhou  –  Start date: 2005

MICHAEL KORS  Creative Director:  Michael Kors  –  Owner: Silas Chou, Lawrence Stroll; Sportswear Holdings

  –  Start date: 1981

They have only been around for a couple of seasons and their road to the top is just starting, but trust me on this one, they are the ones to watch. Band of Outsiders has already the Menswear experience, Joseph Altuzarra has Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and PS on his CV and the Olsen sisters have always had that X FACTOR.

ALTUZARRA Creative Director: Joseph Altuzarra  –  Start date: 2009

THE ROW  Creative Director:  Mary-Kate Olsen & Ashley Olsen  –  Start date: 20057

BAND OF OUTSIDERS  Creative Director:  Scott Sternberg  –  Owner: Scott Sternberg  –  Start date: 2011

Now you know who’s showing this week! Which show are you most excited for? I’m a sucker for Jacobs, Preen and Jason Wu. Expect the unexpected, because that’s the thing about New York and that’s the beauty about it too.

Sweet kisses…
