#NYFW New York Fashion Week

With NewYorkDress and Olga Parkers

Fashion never sleeps and certainly a little snow didn’t frighten the magnitude of stylists,

editors, photographers, bloggers and celebrities strutting toward their seats for the

Thomas Wylde Fall/Winter 2016 Runway show during NYFW. 

The venue was all the historical glamour, situated inside the Skylight at Moynihan

Station Postal?Office. The interior arrangement was quite pristine, with a TRESemmé

hair bar – in case one needs a quick blow-dry restyling before the next show. An “E!”

sponsored interactive runway where everyone can record, email and share their 8

seconds of runway spotlight.  While waiting for the Thomas Wylde show to begin, I

relaxed and sipped on a tall glass of water in a press designated lounge, vibrantly

decorated with framed provocative editorials of supermodels Kate Moss, Joan Smalls,

Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington. I felt like I was sitting in my dream living

room decorated with lush contemporary decor provided courtesy of Fendi Casa, with

exotic fur covered sofas, pillows in zebra and bright yellow rabbit skins.

Once inside the “The Dock” the fashion show was soon to begin: the lights dimmed,

high-energy music started to play and the first model emerged with a so much passion in

her walk one could feel her energy across the room. She was wearing a vibrant crimson

fur-collared cashmere cape. The new Thomas Wylde “90291” & “Through the Looking

Glass” Capsule collection – collaboration with Walt Disney was definitely something out

of a fairy tale.  I loved the collection which followed a “Red, White and Black” color

scheme, and included menswear tailored coats with embellished sleeves, capes, and

cocktail dresses with plunging V neckline. The models clad in the eclectic glamorous

collection emerged one by one for the runway finale. They paced down the runway

together as the audience applauded the designer as she bowed in gratitude at the head of

the runway.

After the show I went backstage and was happy to meet the creative director of Thomas

Wylde – Jene Park. I compliment her on the incredible designs, collection and show.

Jene Park was quite bubbly, excited and thrilled at the response she received, giving

interviews to press and posing for photos. The event was star studded including

attending celebrities Nicole Scherzinger of The Pussycat Dolls, Olivia Culpo, Nicky

Hilton, Chantel Jeffries, Karrueche Tran, Jane Notar whom all came to show their

support wearing designs from the Thomas Wylde collection.

It was an amazing treat to attend the Thomas Wylde show – a Special Thank you to

NewYorkDress.com for this treat. NYFW is always such an exciting and thrilling time of

the year, during which all the fashion devotees and professionals come together in

celebration and support of the new collections. I will admit NYFW feels like New Years

Eve, but better because it happens twice a year and the thrill can be relived with each

collection shown.

Happy Fashion Week darlings!
