Our Highlights Of New York Fashion Week
From Bill Nye The Science Guy to A Fashion World Musical
Art x Style 10 Feb 2020

It’s that time of year again…while the art world mourns the closure of Art Basel Hong Kong, the fashion pack have been flocking to New York to grab their seats on the frow at New York Fashion Week. While us art girls pretend that we’re not into it, we’re all secretly jealous of those lucky few who get invited to the top shows. I mean, how could we not be envious? The beginning of fashion season always has us on the edge of our seats, as we wonder what styles we might be trying to recreate for art parties later in the year. So, without further ado, here are our top moments from NYFW!


Bill Nye at The Blue Jacket Fashion Show

Are you a fan of Lizzo?! Did you watch Bill Nye The Science Guy when you were a kid? Well, the most unexpected fashion pairing came into the world as Bill Nye strutted down the catwalk to Lizzo’s JUICE at The Blue Jacket Fashion Show, which was held to raise awareness for men’s health and prostate cancer treatment. And, while it was bizarre, we simply cannot get over it!


Statement Bags at Laquan Smith

This bag says everything we screamed at our parents when we told them about our future ambitions to be full-time art girls…Laquan Smith knows exactly what we’ve all been thinking! 


Tory Burch at Sotheby’s



Yep, you read that right, Tory Burch staged her Fall/Winter 2020 show at art-girl haunt Sotheby’s! The show incorporated designs inspired by Francesca Di Mattio’s sculptures. We just can’t get enough!


Drama, Drama And More Drama at Christopher John Rogers

Having just won the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund award, Christopher John Rogers knew that he had to impress, and boy did he deliver! Just look at this fabulous ballgown, we can’t wait to wear one to the next art gala!


Off To The Theatre at Susan Alexandra

We all know Susan Alexandra for her beaded jewellery and handbags, but it turns out she is capable of SO much more. She truly outdid herself this season, presenting viewers with a MUSICAL! The designer staged a production documenting a woman’s journey to open the best store in SoHo, and we’re all hoping this will actually turn into a fully-fledged broadway musical so we can all snag a ticket. 


Braids For Days at Slashed By Tia

We all dream of having locks like Rapunzel, and Slashed By Tia made a case for these to come back into fashion. While her clothes were undeniably dreamy, her show was all about her models’ luscious long locks.


Toxic Brights at KA WA KEY

Gender-fluid line Ka Wa Key kicked off the presentations at NYFW with these looks that said a big f*ck you to gender roles. We’re always a fan of a statement piece, and these clashing colours will definitely have all eyes on us at the next arty party.


The Hilton Sisters Go Red

Paris and Nicky Hilton helped NYC Fashion Week draw to a close in matching red dresses for the Go Red For Women fashion show, held by the American Heart Association in a bid to end heart disease and strokes in women.
