Designer Spotlight: Fall/Winter '18 New York Fashion Week Favorites

The annual Fall/Winter '18 season of New York Fashion Week kicked off in New York City this February! I love and appreciate the artistry and craft that comes with each collection curated by designers. I also genuinely appreciated the diversity on the runways. That being said, I was so excited to see the many stunning collections that were showcased on the runways during Fashion Week. So, today I'm sharing with you several of my favorite collections (in no specific order) that were showcased for this Fall/Winter '18 season of New York Fashion Week. 

Ulla Johnson

Ulla Johnson's Fall 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection was absolutely fabulous. I adored the entire collection which consisted of new and fresh takes on layering, knits, mixing fabric and more. There were also many looks that consisted of layering in ways that were beautifully executed.

Juicy Couture Show

Juicy Couture was a popular brand of the '90s and early '00s and within this Fall collection, for Fashion Week the signature look of the brand was seen in new variations. I adored how they took trends from different decades and intertwined them with the Juicy Couture Collection for a fresh take on their signature style.


Colovos brought utilitarian style and softly structured looks within their collection this Fashion Week. Many of the pieces within their collection made bold and beautiful statements on the runways. 

Anna Sui

Anna Sui presented a beautiful collection full of prints and color.  Different prints, fabrics, and colors were paired and layered together in a way that was beautifully executed. I adored each and every look within this collection, especially the various prints in each look and the beautiful layering.

Romeo Hunte

Romeo Hunte sent models down the runway in beautiful cropped jackets and reversible raincoats. I adored the bold red checkered looks and the statement coats in the collection. The collection was executed fabulously, from the mixed patchwork coats to the checkered print vinyl cropped jackets. Each look was a stunning stand-alone statement on the runway.

Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang sent many amazing looks down the runway. An ode to the '70s was demonstrated in some looks with the use of vinyl and patent leather. This collection brought a futuristic and contemporary look on the runway. Wang also made a statement when he incorporated his label onto some of the pieces in the collection which added an element of charm to the collection.

Christian Siriano

I absolutely adored Christian Siriano's collection this fashion week. Ashley Graham opened the show in this stunning floor-length bold red statement coat. Each look within the collection was beyond stunning from the beautiful gowns to the bold statement coats.

Jonathan Simkhai

Jonathan Simkhai showcased a gorgeous collection with different prints and structured styles. I was literally obsessing over this collection the moment I saw it, because of how beautiful and fresh the looks were. Each look was a contemporary spin on classic styles and prints. I also liked the mix of structured and free clothing pieces throughout the collection.

Tom Ford

Tom Ford's collection consisted of numerous divine looks this Fashion Week. I adored the many cheetah-licious statement looks that were sent down the runway. There were many bold statements in Ford's collection from the use of color to the print mixing to the stunning coats. 

Cinq a Sept

The Cinq a Sept collection had such an element of charm and elegance in their collection this Fashion Week. The collection had such elegant looks and a beautiful color palette to follow. I also noticed the amazing mix of prints and fabrics in certain looks within this collection as well.

Adam Selman

Adam Selman's collection was a fun and bold ode to the '80s. Colorful looks were sent down the runways and I adored the different classic pieces that were showcased within Selman's collection. Trends from the '80s were expressed within the collection from the colorful tights to the puffy statement sleeves and the Paper Moon Graphics that were popular during that decade.

Brock Collection

The Brock Collection showcased a collection with an aura of romance and minimalist look. There was also a vintage style that was incorporated in many looks in the collection. Each look was absolutely beautiful and the vintage floral print unified the collection and brought an enchanting element overall.

Dan Liu

Dan Liu's collection this season for fashion week showcased a look similar to his previous ones with the feminine cuts, lace and pastel hues. The collection showed a beautiful range of looks that were unified with one element or another whether it was through the color palette or lace fabric. I also thought the statement coats and jackets were absolutely gorgeous and paired nicely with certain outfits.

Art Hearts Fashion


Art Hearts Fashion is a platform that was founded by philanthropist and designer, Erik Rosete. Art Hearts Fashion is a platform that holds events for emerging designers to showcase their latest collections for Fashion Week. What I also really like and respect is that the Art Hearts Fashion platform is also intertwined with a couple of causes and organizations it supports.

Fall/Winter '18 New York Fashion Week

The last show I went to held by Art Hearts Fashion for Spring/Summer '18 New York Fashion Week was beyond beautiful from the venue to the collection that was showcased. Art Hearts Fashion Runway events are held every year in this gorgeous venue on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. And many designers showcased their collections for Fall/Winter '18 New York Fashion Week at the same venue. A lot of designers showcased stunning collections but, my favorites include collections presented by Carmen Steffens and Mac Duggal.

Mac Duggal's collection showcased numerous divine gowns on the runways. As for Carmen Steffens, I genuinely appreciated how each of the looks within the collection was effortless and something that many people could essentially wear day-to-day. I adored the use of prints and appliques throughout several looks in the collection as well.
