The first show we attended at NYFW which knocked our socks off (ok I lie, we were not wearing socks, it’s sunny and 27 degrees every day here) was the Supima Design Competition. Supima is cotton home-grown in the US. The annual competition showcases young talent. You may have heard of Woolmark, this is the cotton version. 8 fine graduates from 4 of America’s top design schools (State University of New York, Kent State University, Rhode Island School of Design and Savannah College of Art & Design) were given 3 months to create a capsule collection of eveningwear made exclusively from Supima cotton. Each had to dye and treat the fabrics themselves. I chose 2 of my favourite looks from each designer to show you the level of craftsmanship and finesse each young designer displayed. It’s difficult to believe that they are all graduates! Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe was the guest judge of the competition. She ran late and missed the show, but did come in time for the announcement.
Morgan Selin (the Winner)
If you would like to view the video of the runway, head [HERE]. I mean who wouldn’t? The dresses are mind-blowingly gorgeous!
Rachel Zoe showed up in her signature golden locks, maxi dress and gold jewels, fashionably late, of course. To pick the winner from this competition would have been like picking only one pair of shoes, (assuming that all sizes are available for you) from a Net-a-Porter sale. C’est impossible! Who do you think should have won?
After the show, we all headed to The Empire Hotel for the rooftop after party. Speaking of which, I better get ready for the RewardStyle bloggers party, also on the rooftop of The Empire Hotel. Toodles lovely! Hope you’re having a great start to the week! I’ll be showing you the Australian Designers runway show tomorrow! Stay tuned!
我们在纽约时装周参加的第一个时装展览是美国棉花产业Supima的学生设计大赛。一年一度的竞争，为了展示青年人的才干。 四所美国顶级设计学校（纽约州立大学，肯特州立大学，罗得岛设计和萨凡纳艺术与设计学院学院）各选出二位精细毕业生。Supima给予他们3个月的时间，完全只能用Supima的棉布创建小型的晚装专集。每个面料都得自己染过。年轻设计师的作品太棒了，我只选择了最喜欢的为你展示他们的工艺水平和技巧。很难相信，他们只是大学毕业生！明星造型师Rachel Zoe是比赛的嘉宾评委。当然， 她来晚了，只到颁奖仪式才到。这是“时髦地迟到”。
