New York Fashion Week wrapped up last week and the vibe was very different since Mercedes Benz no longer sponsors the event. Many designers sought out various venues such as Milk Studios, Gotham Hall, and Grand Central to showcase their collections, while others showed at Moynihan Station, the equivalent to Lincoln Center this season.
Designers showed their Spring/Summer 2016 Collections, and with the weather in New York City still in the 90s, guests continued their summer dress code style. NYFW is full of surprises, and the most shocking thing was seeing a guest at the Betsey Johnson show wearing a fur vest in 90 degree weather. As for the fashion on the runways, we spotted the trends and have found runway inspired pieces in Montclair boutiques.
Check out the local finds:
