New York Fashion Week hasn’t been too exciting so far, especially with the cookie cutter formula that designers have been using, intentional or not. In the same way my style continues to evolve, the things that now catch my eye are for the bold, individual and/or minimal, not the trends that come and go. It is exhausting to feel the need to refresh my wardrobe after each runway, too, and that is not how anyone buys clothing, even editors. Duckie Brown was not only refreshing in its color palette and and design, but also in its mood. Romanticism blended effortlessly with a darker undercurrent, and the result was a collection reflective of reality, of hope and some darkness.
