From Anna Wintour and the Kardashians to Nicki Minaj and the Beckhams, New York Fashion Week 2017 certainly called for the stars to align and flaunt their hottest looks for the cameras. Whether it was to come together and support luxury staples such as Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta, and Coach, smaller brands such as Baja East, or larger retailers such as Club Monaco, there was no shortage of star power in the front rows. This year also saw exciting collaborations between major retailers and celebrities, such as Fenty Puma by Rihanna, which garnered massive buzz with the opening of a Midtown pop-up shop. And a partnership between Olivia Palermo and Banana Republic has resulted in a special, tailored line that will be available for purchase in major retail outlets.
One thing that’s for sure is that the rise of social media has been accompanied by a growth in real-time communications. Celebrities immediately share their experience from the inside at major fashion shows, and outsiders are more tuned in than ever to what designers are bringing to the runways. In the weeks following Fashion Week, New Yorkers who want to adopt the chicest fashions inevitably head Downtown to SoHo, New York, where classic cobblestone streets intersect the signature shopping mecca of the world.
Step outside the West SoHo condos for sale at 70 Charlton condos and walk in any direction to find great shopping and fashion inspiration galore. If there is ever a neighborhood to recreate the looks seen on the runway, it is, after all, SoHo. Beyond the inspiration that you can gather from the simple street style of pedestrians, there is an eclectic mix of luxury venues and more affordable retail stores. From footwear and evening gowns to high-end jewelry and sexy lingerie, the options are limitless for those with a credit card and some empty arms.
And if the mission is to recreate the looks of Fashion Week 2017, the place to go is Broadway, from Canal to Houston, which is lined with large-scale global retailers like Club Monaco and Banana Republic. Here is where you will be able to find the latest trends to channel that Hollywood style that shows you are the insider to all that New York Fashion Week is and always will be: fun and beautiful.
