Pamella Roland Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
Since the debut of her first collection in 2002, Pamella Roland has gained status as the preferred label of choice for Hollywood’s elite, with high-profile actresses like Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner, and Angelina Jolie regularly dressed in her designs for red carpet events. The brand’s immense popularity among celebrities and its frequent appearances at the industry’s top events have positioned it as one of the more coveted presentations of the last few seasons. Roland’s ascent to prominence within the industry has been impressive: by 2003–just a year after her NYFW debut—the brand received the Gold Coast Award, and in 2010 Roland was inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). Roland’s foray into fashion design began after having built a successful career in public relations that spanned over a decade, when, in 2002, Roland shifted careers and launched the eponymous fashion house, Pamella Roland.
Inspired by stained glass, a type of glass that is infused with colorful metallic salts during manufacture, Roland employed the use of embroidery, crystals and sequins with a lavish mix of silk organza, lace, tulle, and crepe to achieve the refined, opulent look of the collection. Rich jewel tones and soft pastels accentuated by intricate metallic threadwork added to the stained glass motif, including emerald, sapphire, lavender, and blush pink. Defining many of the standout looks of the collection was the inclusion of feathers, perhaps a reflection of a growing trend in evening wear that is well suited to Roland’s style. Two mini dresses in olive and lavender featured skirts made almost entirely out of feathers with metallic silver threading weaved into the layers of the material, adding an exciting visual dimension to both looks. The collection offered an array of lavish silhouettes and lines, from dramatic princess skirts to chicly tailored suits, though the more form-fitting shapes were among the most memorable of the collection: the silver mini dress with a deeply plunging neckline and layers of metallic fringe threading was youthful and fresh, while the floor-length lace gown encrusted with navy sequins and crystals defined elegance, it’s chiffon cape billowing as it swept the runway. A fabulous black jumpsuit with sequined floral appliqué rounded out the collection and demonstrated Roland’s range as an evening wear designer.
Each season, Roland’s collections increasingly epitomize the look of luxury and opulence, speaking directly to a clientele who look to bring those qualities to their evening wear selections. Whether you love it or loathe it, the “athleisure” and streetwear trends in fashion have taken over the runways and have effectively spilled into the closets of fashionistas everywhere. In that regard, this straightforward collection of gowns and cocktail dresses was like a breath of fresh air on just the second day of NYFW, a dazzling, welcome spectacle that may just be the harbinger of a move back to the glamour and sparkle that was at once a fashion week staple.

Designs Influenced by Paul Poiret’s Japanese-Inspired Silhouette at Cushnie Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
Carly Cushnie, famed for creating beautifully crafted designs that flatter the curves of a woman’s body. These looks enticed us with her recent collection inspired by French master couturier, Paul Poiret’s 20th-century Japanese-inspired silhouettes. She also took inspiration from the Japanese art of floral arrangements. Forming angular shapes, and geometric folds inspired by artist Nicola Kloosterman’s Shadowplay collage series. She chose to design this elegant Japanese-inspired collection in decadent navy, burgundy, blue, and purple hues.
She kept her signature aesthetic of feminine, clean lines, emphasizing on the shape, and form. Hints of boldness were articulated in forms of Japanese-inspired floral print embroidery, artful draping and folds to create pleated shoulder, asymmetrical neckline, and fringed details. The runway looks consisted of exquisitely constructed tops, jackets, trousers, jumpsuits, and skirts in luxurious satin and velvet fabrics.
This well-tailored collection, with its intricate use of handcrafted techniques, could only be expected of Cushnie.

Afffair Spring Summer 2019 during New York Fashion Week
Showing on the last day of fashion week was one of our favorite brands, Afffair. Quickly rising to the top as a preferred choice for celebrities and on the red carpet, designer Rufat Ismayel, creator of Afffair, brought a glamorous vision for this season and the brand. Born in Baku, Azerbaijan, Ismayel got his start by modeling for fashion houses as a teenager. He modeled for top brands like Paco Rabanne and Valentine Yudashkin. Then he realized he wanted to make a shift and create his own fashion brand and designs. Moving to Istanbul, he launched Afffair. Ismayel manages everything from design to factory garment production.
Jeweled details and elegant evening gowns are some of the features that make this collection so luxurious. Most pieces shown this season were dresses except for the occasional jumper, pants, shorts, skirt, and tops. Colors used in the collection were green, gold, and black. Materials noticed included organza, satin, velvet, and chiffon. The collection used opaque materials, and played with the use of skin which added sexy and mysterious vibes. A few of the looks were styled with a headband that complimented the collection.

Concept Korea Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
The very idea of Concept Korea is a fascinating one: a government-sponsored fashion collective developed to promote a burgeoning crop of talented Korean designers on a global platform. This season, breakthrough brands IISE and LIE each brought exciting, though very different, aesthetics to the world at NYFW.
LIE opened with a strong offering from designer Chungchung Lee, who delivered a relaxed, dynamic line of feminine daywear to the runway. A visually complex line with layers of contrasting textures, harsh patterns, and experimental textile combinations, Lee’s design aesthetic was unfamiliar, but altogether very desirable. Look-after-look demanded attention and conjured a sense of luxury and wealth: the mid-collection ensemble of wool plaid trousers and a leopard print jacket, both paired with a clashing midi blouse constructed of plaid, matching leopard print, and lace. Lee is an exciting young designer able to actualize his experimental vision and deliver it earnestly on the runway; LIE invokes curiosity and is very promising.
Helmed by design duo (and brothers) Terrence and Kevin Kim, IISE closed the collective with the intriguing and aptly titled collection, “Protest,” featuring 20 handpicked models of different races, looks, and attitudes. Constructed of materials sourced solely from their home city of Seoul, Protest offered an authentic, surprisingly emotive collection of streetwear designs. Several strong looks in head-to-toe black opened, notably a layered, sleek ensemble of sheer stockings, bicycle shorts, and a nicely tailored vinyl zip-up under a simple, utilitarian jacket. With each look more color was introduced until the complete absence of black was palpable: the intricately patterned and designed pastel blue poncho and trouser set brought a daring authenticity that was all in the details, how it created space and movement down the runway. IISE’s first NYFW offering was spirited and unique, an exploration of a global city’s history and how that narrative might illuminate its future.

70’s Glam Rock Influences at Hakan Akkaya Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
One of the top shows of the season was from a designer we had not seen before. Istanbul designer Hakan Akkaya’s Fall Winter 2019 Collection proves that 70’s glam rock is back in fashion! The collection had both male and female models walking in the show. The looks and central theme of the collection heavily focused on glamorous punk rock styles influenced by 70’s rock stars icons like David Bowie, Joan Jett, and Billy Idol.
The rock-glam collection is made to be worn on the big stage as only performers can pull off the blinding shimmers, over sized shoulder pads, sequins decorated with spike and studded details as seen on these pieces. Edgy looks comprised of sparkling bell-bottom pants, pantsuits, bodysuits, dresses, skirts, jackets, fur, and puff coats were some of the pieces we saw. The color palette used consisted of silver, gold, pink and black metallic shades, solid black was used as a staple throughout the collection. Prints like leopard, zebra, pinstripes, checkerboard, and glitter were used. A few of the pieces were embellished with a lightning bolt which added to the 70’s theme.
These modernized retro-glam outfits which screamed fun vibes would be perfect on celebrities like Lady Gaga or Jennifer Lopez at their concert performances!
