New York Fashion Week remains one of my favorite events every season, but with the current pandemic, NYFW has shifted to a predominantly virtual platform. Arrival at Spring Studios was melodramatic in comparison with a normal season at NYFW, there were few photographers and even fewer spectators outside the venue. The process for entry was quite detailed. Attendees could enter the building at their given time slot and then were required to complete a temperature check, followed by a survey. Each attendee was given two bracelets and then placed socially distanced lines. Each line was then guided to the freight elevator and taken to the roof and led into the presentation.
In recent months we have all become accustomed to wearing comfortable and often more casual pieces. For the Rebecca Minkoff Presentation I wanted to pay tribute to my comfortable pieces while elevating it to a fashion week level. I chose a ruched silk maxi dress from Rick Owens in a shade of blush. The dress is incredibly comfortable, yet still elevated and chic. I paired it with my black Prada military boots, giving the look even more of an edge. I finished the look with my green Bottega Veneta chain pouch. This bag is one of my absolute favorites, it is in my favorite shade of green and the thick gold chain makes such a bold statement. It brought my look to a whole different level, perfectly juxtaposing the casual and effortless vibes from the dress. This is the new normal for NYFW.
