Welcome to Fashion Month! New York Fashion Week flew by. The week-long event featured hundreds of memorable runway shows, from blockbuster names to indie designers we all need to know.
Runway shows take place everywhere from the Brooklyn Museum to Spring Studios to the piers of South Street Seaport. February’s runway shows were all but canceled for the Omicron variant, and this fashion week is one to remember, as the fashion crowd brought it.
Here are seven NYFW highlights.
Couture brand Renacio by Carlos Reyes wowed the crowd with its dream-inspired dresses and garments. Entitled “The Myth of Eris and the Resilient Unicorn,” the surrealist clothing symbolism details the story of a girl who falls asleep and finds out what she dreams of.
“The show was inspired by dreams and nightmares with mythological symbolism,” said Reyes.
On the dress, a large cameo box opens at the wearer’s heart and bears the Latin words “Mortem” for “death” and “Saltare” for “dance” on the shoulders. Inside the box is an image of a ballerina from the 1945 short film “Destino” by Salvador Dali and Walt Disney. The box is decorated with the French phrase “Le disco a besoin de vous” (you).
“The whole thing symbolizes the choice between death and dance,” says Reyes. “Live life stagnant and boring or dance happily. Unicorn’s journey is to choose to dance.”
