Maybe its the adrenaline rush that I get when I’m running from show to show, or maybe it’s just that unexplainable feeling I get when I’m strolling the streets of the city that never sleeps. Anyway you look at it, New York Fashion Week is a magical, chaotic time. Just when you think you couldn’t possibly work any harder, you push through it. We’re at the halfway point and after countless shows and a variety of incredible successful launches and spectacular events, I wanted to give you the insider scoop on one of my very favorite designers of all time: Zimmermann.
Zimmermann debuted their new SS17 collection last Friday, and let me tell you – it was not to be missed. It was filled with so many of my favorite things: free-flowing dresses, incredible ruffle and lace detailing, embellished textured crop tops, gorgeous florals, and All amongst a display of corseted belts and boots. Once again, Zim for the win! The show took place in a trendy industrial space along the Hudson River where the fashion week photographers took their positions and aimed as the fashion crowds poured in. I made it onto the pages W Magazines Street Style round up!
The colors of the collection were inspired by the rise of the pastel: a combination of luscious creams and whites, dusty peaches, and varying shades of lilac. After hearing more about the collection, I learned that SS17 was inspired by the Zimmermann gals’ love for the underground nightclub scene in the 80’s which was evident through heavy influences of plaid.
