Fashion Weeks’ Street Style Tendencies

When it comes to fashion, it’s difficult to say what exactly you should look for in trends. Sometimes it seems like the designers are all about functionality, other times it’s like they are trying to shock you and challenge the norms. There are also those designers who simply create styles that they find beautiful. Designers differ in their approaches and opinions, but street style is where fashion truly comes to life. We bring you street style tendencies from several biggest and most popular fashion weeks.

New York rocked the prints

It seemed like New York was all about prints! Girls wore different outfits, but they all had one thing in common – at least one of the pieces had some interesting print. With that in mind, whether it’s a vintage plaid shirt you discovered in your mum’s closet, a geometric print mini skirt you fell in love with, or a simple striped turtleneck that makes you look like you just came from the ‘70s, as long as you have a piece with a print, you’ll fit right in.

Paris was all about seduction

One thing’s for sure: Paris has always loved female beauty, and as the city of love, it’s only natural that ladies love to show off just how attractive and seductive they are. Long, warm coats under which you can spot a leather mini skirt and a crop top, skinny jeans, stiletto heels, thigh-high boots, wide belts that show off the slim waists, and oversized bomber jackets are all brought together to celebrate the beauty of Parisian women.

Milan loved it colourful

When it comes to Milan Fashion Week, the street style was bursting with bright colours and bold designs. A pink skirt and orange handbag, an oversized neon orange raincoat, vintage polka dot dresses with bright red shoes, and a retro combination of purple shoes and a mid-calf flowy skirt with a bright pink turtleneck and oversized glasses transformed the streets of Milan into a carnival. It seems as if nothing is forbidden and you can wear pretty much any outfit in any colour as long as you’re confident enough.

London inspired by the world

The streets of London were packed with people who weren’t afraid to experiment and incorporate different styles into their own, unique one. “More is more” approach seems to be working here, and it looks like there’s no way to push things too far: a blue suede dress with blue shoes and a blue coat? Why not?! Head-to-toe denim – pants, jacket, bag and a hat? Sounds good! Oversized everything – maxi dress, bulky ankle boots, and an oversized coat? Rock on! Drawing attention with bold combinations isn’t something bad, but rather something these ladies with unique styles enjoy doing.

Australia cherishes simplicity

Aussie women are known for their laid-back style and love for comfortable and versatile pieces. Boyfriend jeans, ripped denim skirts, flowy floral blouses, high waist pants and crop tops, and shoulder bags all speak volumes about the great love that Aussie girls have for versatility. One of the greatest surprises in Sydney was the focus on functionality and comfort when it comes to shoes. Everywhere you looked, comfortable Birkenstock Shoes from Australia were present, from simple slippers and sandals to sturdy leather ankle boots.

Times are changing, and today, street style is just as famous and important as the runway shows themselves. As anyone who has ever wracked their brains coming up with the perfect outfit for a special occasion will tell you – dressing to impress others isn’t easy. On the contrary, even models, designers, and fashion editors have their bad days and struggle to find inspiration. Learn from the best and find inspiration in the street style of the world’s most famous fashion weeks.

Hakan Akkaya Is the New ‘Cool-Kid’ Of American Fashion

New York, NY –Famed Turkish designer, Hakan Akkaya, made his New York Fashion Week debut on day two of NYFW: The Shows, instantly becoming the new “cool-kid” of fashion with his all-black collection that ripped any notion of black being ‘basic’ to shreds. Known internationally for his chic and uber edgy designs, Hakan Akkaya’s Fall/Winter 2017 runway showcased pieces that were sexy, edgy and questioned societal norms.  Hakan Akkaya’s collection emphasized “Sporty Couture” featuring both men’s and womenswear. Black dominated the collection, but silver zippers, harnesses, ruffled details, velvets, denim and metallic fabrics created stunning visual effects as the collection rolled down the runway.

The show began with fiery red lights saturating the runway as guest awaited with bated breath for the designer’s newest collection. Turkish supermodel and celebrity  Cagla Sikel opened the show, setting the tone for the sexy, chic ensembles that followed.


The collection entitled “Freedom” examined social issues through rich textures and jaw-dropping silhouettes that exuded a sense of the designer’s comfort and celebration of sexual, racial and gender equality.
Stand out women’s pieces in the collection included a slinky, red-carpet worthy, metallic gunmetal sheer evening dress with a harmonious juxtaposition of soft and hard features including leather belted details and a ruffled bodice. Gorgeous slim leg pants with zipper and ruffle accents were paired perfectly with an asymmetric sheer top over a velvety-cropped halter.

Guests were treated to a full men’s collection as well full of harnesses, belted coats and bondage themed garments that were tailored, but maintained an effortless ‘badass’ vibe.

The designer’s ability combine seemingly over-the-top design details into masterful wardrobe pieces was evident in every design. His bold and audacious choices displayed the perfect amount of restraint leading to a catwalk full of edgy, yet perfectly tailored silhouettes.

In a time when human rights and liberties are in jeopardy around the world, Hakan Akkaya used his fashion and art to make a statement that freedom is something that should be a right to all human beings regardless of their religion, race, background or sexual orientation. A male and female model sauntered down the runway in Hakan designed “Burka-esque” pieces that were added to the collection to support this statement of freedom and gender equality. The audience reaction to the show was palpable and after the shows conclusion crowds swarmed the entrance to the runway hoping to get a peek backstage and an up-close-and-personal view of the new “it” designer.

Tips for the Fashion Week Newbie

 

img_1896

Hurray! It’s Vancouver Fashion Week, but what do I wear?

Going to your first fashion week can sometimes seem a little daunting.
After all, there are designers, models, artist, actors and the creme de la creme of the “beautiful people” world. Hold up! While this may be partly true, keep in mind the event is about fashion, having fun and looking good doing so.

Your purpose is to check out the new collections; What are the “must haves” fashion pieces for next season and the newest and hottest designers to watch for next year. Let’s be honest; it’s also about seeing and being seen while showing off what YOUR style is. Yes, you may not be on the runway but you are attending the event and your appearance is important.

Here are a few tips to get you through this exciting event.

1. Be yourself – You are your best self when you are comfortable in what you are wearing. By comfortable, I don’t mean wearing flats, Lulus, and a t-shirt. I mean the outfit that states “this is me, and I look stunning.” Be current, but be yourself.

2. Trend statements – trends are constantly changing, hence the word “trend.” Changing your wardrobe every season to keep up with other fashionistas doesn’t mean, dare I say… you have YOUR style, it means you are a follower. Don’t be a follower, be a trendsetter. You can get statement pieces that are “trendy”- rock the bow tie, wear polka dots with stripes. If it’s you, be BOLD and own it!

3. Shoes – Shoes make all the difference to an outfit. You could be wearing the most expensive attire and have a poorly made shoe, and it would ruin your outfit. Start your outfit out by picking your shoes than work your way up. The last thing you need is to have the perfect outfit, get to your front door and not have a pair that compliments what you are wearing.

4. Confidence – Nothing in your wardrobe is more important than confidence. If you don’t have the confidence to pull it off, it won’t matter what you wear.

5. Have fun – Sure people are judging, I’m judging right now, it’s human nature and who cares? When you sit in that chair and realize you get to watch your favorite designers showcase their newest collection LIVE, nothing else will matter.

6. Remember – You can never be too overdressed. This is so true and even more true for fashion week.
