During NYFW there is more than just MBFW or shows at Lincoln Center. There are tons of designers who present collections and one such amazing venue to do that is through Nolcha Fashion Week at Chelsea Piers Studios. Nolcha is NY’s leading showcase for independent fashion designers. Nolcha has a 6 year history of the shows and this year was stepped up in a major way from February. I am very eager to see more come next February! Check out more about Nolcha Fashion Week by clicking here. The designer to check out below is Katty Xiomara.
Nolcha Fashion week is sponsored in part by Rusk, but there are also other important sponsors who are set up and showcasing their latest products. Sponsors this fall included Biovea, Homanz, American Airlines, Subway, Popmarket, Grande Lash M.D., My Fashion Database, SmartWater, Don Q rum, Magnifico Giornata, AOF Makeup Pro, Monster and Boutiika. Check out my pictures throughout this post of the great set-ups some of the sponsors had. Learn more about the Sponsors and to view their websites here.
There were a lot of celebs at this current year’s shows, including Kelly Rutherford, Coco Rocha, Christy Turlington, Jennie Garth, Mel B., and Ashlee White and Casey Cohen from Princesses: Long Island and more. There were 2 time frames for shows which only had 1 designer, so here is the information about one of those designers and highlights from her collections!
Katty Xiomara showed during the 11 am time slot. The Katty Xiomara woman is very poetic, elegantic, a bit whimsy and romantic. This is quite evident from this spring 2014 presentation, which is full of idyllic prints and light colored tones for the spring. There were so many pieces shown and here are a few that caught my eye! For all pictures click here.
