September’s New York Fashion Week is always the highlight of returning back to fall. As summer ends and the busy city returns from vacation, designers come back ready to hit the runway with their newest collections. Tom Ford’s collection was subway chic with molded plastic tops, cool oversized jackets and plunging necklines, showcasing the sleekness of the new menswear collection, while other standouts included Zimmermann, Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren and Jonathan Simkhai.

Tom Ford’s fashion set stood apart from others as guests experienced the runway show on a subway platform. Set in an abandoned subway station on the Lower East Side, only Tom Ford could mix the glamour and grit of New York. The collection itself was city chic with molded plastic tops, cool oversized jackets and plunging necklines. From the menswear collection they showcased streetwear sleekness.Ralph Lauren @RalphLauren – @fashiontomax x @maximsap photographed by: @Gannphoto
The 2020 Spring/Summer runway show from Ralph Lauren defined Hollywood glamour. The scene was something out of a 1920’s set filled with opulence, ornate art-deco chandeliers and a black-and-white dress code which only added to the decades past charm. In classic Ralph Lauren fashion, the iconic designer transformed a former NYC bank on Wall Street into “Ralph’s Club” for the event. It was the perfect backdrop for the glitzy runway show. The Spring 2020 collection was filled with red carpet moments as Ralph Lauren stayed true to his roots with classically tailored suits, smoking jackets in pops of color, and beautiful gowns engineered to fit your silhouette.Oscar de la Renta @oscardelarenta – @fashiontomax x @maximsap photographed by: @Filippofior for @VogueRunway
Oscar de la Renta’s collection is the epitome of when festive meets elegance. Using rich colors, stripes and floral prints, the collection is striking, powerful, sexy, yet understated perfection. Designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia were inspired by their travels in recent collections. For Spring 2020, they returned to where de la Renta was created: the Dominican Republic. With this in mind, the designers tapped into the fashion house’s Latin American roots to present flowing caftans in floral prints for the ultimate vacation-inspired looks. Tailoring was also at the forefront with bright blazers to breezy linen pants.Jonathan Simkhai @JonathanSimkhai – @fashiontomax x @maximsap photographed by: @Byoliren
Spring hues, neutral tones, and the lightweight fabrics of slip dresses with a mixture of silk and lace radiated on the rooftop runway. The simplicity of a feminine woman describes the collection of Los Angeles based designer Jonathan Simkhai. With tailored pantsuits, long coats, and sheer long tank dresses worn over wide legged pants, the looks are central to the designer’s brand. The idea of having a few of his pieces in your closet for travel, a chic day out, or dinner makes your life less hectic when it comes to styling yourself.Zimmermann @Zimmermann – @fashiontomax x @maximsap photographed by: @AlessandroLucioni for @VogueRunway
Vacation dreams never end with Australian designer Nicky Zimmerman. The patterns and silhouettes makes one want to travel and express their bohemian mood. Using colorful prints and eyelets, the collection showcases intricate detailing of the fabrics on dramatic sleeves, flirtatious crop tops, and short hemlines that give off a fresh modern twist for the collection. With oversized jackets, high-waisted pants, and wide belts, Zimmerman has a piece in the collection for everyone.Greta Constantine @GretaConstantine – @AltaModaComm photographed by Petertamlin
Kirk Pickergill and Stephen Wong of Greta Constantine presented styles a bit different. The pieces set their own tone for a vivid event! The collection was all about texture and colors of inflorescence, like blouses with oversized sleeves, lamé jumpsuits, and the blossoming dresses that take 24 hours to hand craft.
Each season designers have to come up with a concept, and a feeling that’s different to capture their audience for the newest showcase. It’s not always an easy task creating something new season after season. The teams that work hand in hand with designers play a special role in the outcome of the collection. As a stylist I applaud each and every designer presenting at New York Fashion Week for their long hours, dedication and their love of art!
