Continuing on with more Nolcha Fashion Week posts, lets check out a few of the designers presenting from the “Ones to Watch” collective show. This group is a talented bunch, emerging designers who are certainly going places.
First up, Gregory Apparel for S/S 2015, presented by Rachel Gregory.
This collection encompasses some very feminine & flirty RTW options for women in 2015. There is an ease about the looks due in part to the minimal silhouettes and soft pastels such as rose pink and sky blue. This sky blue deep V-neck dress below is probably one of my most fave pieces. It’s chic, easygoing, and for a woman who wants to be confident and carefree — that’s me!
The delicate, easier going vibe of this collection is not just about the lighter hues, but also the lighter weight fabrics, such as crepe. The fits of the fabric create a more relaxed fit, but all in all, still a very chic and well put together, polished look.
The bold pops of red, as seen above, was a great choice to add for these Spring pieces. It pairs very well with the stone and cream tones.
This is another fave of mine with this collection, very delicate, not over the top, a look that really encapsulates the underlying theme of this presentation. The looks are all so graceful, delicate, and understated, one of my most fave styles, simplistic minimalism at its best!
Love a great, fun dress with some pockets — it’s a detail that comes in handy!
Next up, J.Burgos NY with business glam for S/S 2015!
I love this look below, it’s a great look to showcase the elegance amplified this collection encompasses, thanks in part to the structure and shimmering satin fabric. The emerald jewel tone coloring is also a wise choice in demonstrating how luxe and glamorous many of these looks are.
Mixing in quite well with the emerald jewel tone are bright pops of tangerine orange. It definitely livens up the presentation, showcasing a more bold, daring side to the collection.
Some of the pieces definitely present a bit on the sexier side, a very sensual, alluring quality, such as with this black and white look above.
Separates aide to the business or professional vibe this collection has to offer. As seen above, there is a modern pencil skirt in a pretty blush pink and ruffled skirt. Or as seen below with a look, if paired with a basic black blazer, it could work great for being on the job. And then sans jacket, it transitions great to a date night or happy hour look!
The emerald leopard print is featured on a couple of looks, a print that dresses up quite well a basic look or classic silhouette.
And finally, there is B’venaj, presenting for S/S 15 a modern, urban RTW ensemble of looks for women.
A great aspect of this collection is the ability of taking the brand’s woman on all walks of her life. There are upscale, more glamorous looks, and then ones you could wear to work, a modern professional vibe. The collection runs the gamut for sure!
B’venaj utilizes color so well, also prints. Whether its the bright tangerine orange, the light blue, or red, all are used quite stunningly and are very eye-catching. What’s even more brilliant is the combo of solids with bold, dynamic prints.
A few of the looks feature a modern trend in silhouette — crop top & skirt. The crop tops work with both fitted skirts and of a more fit and flare style.
The looks are very chic, so sophisticated. But even with such polished looks, there is still a sexy, confident vibe to the pieces. This is all done very tastefully, quite appropriate to add more versatility to the collection.
B’venaj presents some truly amazing pieces for women, but luckily, there is a little something to offer for the men as well!
