Entitled Warmth, For A/W 16, Demi Park sought inspiration in Korean traditional garb. The collection is an homage to the designer’s mother, whom she would only see for important holidays as she was growing up. Then dressed in more traditional Korean attire, such as the banbok, a popular Korean dress, her mother exuded warmth and strength at the same time.
So for A/W 16, Demi translated her joy of these rare moments into a very rich collection that pays tribute to tradition, as well as family and togetherness, which is expressed in the warmth of the color palette and the precious materials.
Park’s interpretation of the traditional, typically colorful motives in Korean attire sees a rather saturated appropriation here, playing with nuances of grey, gold, burgundy, camel, and eggplant, that compliment the black and white themes she is so well known for.

This is for sure some chic, highly fashionable childrenswear — my first time seeing the brand. Needless to say, I was vastly impressed, and it was more than an overhaul of the cuteness factor. The pieces were trendy, right on level with what’s hot today!
While not a gigantic collection, Nika Tang still managed to deliver a huge, resounding impact. The outwear was phenomenal to view, but was all astoundingly well-made. The color palette offered a lot in terms of basic pieces, as well as some more unique options.
If I’m not mistaken, this was Nika’s NYFW debut, my first time seeing the designer’s pieces, and overall, I think Tang did well for herself. I look forward to seeing what she has in store next season.
Casa de Moda by Jessica Lynn
I thought Jessica did a great job last season with her chic, super trendy presentation, and this recent showing has certainly led to consistency from the brand, Casa de Moda.
I enjoyed the color palette, specifically the ice blue/serenity, which is actually one of the 2016 Pantone Color’s of the Year. I also was intrigued by the variety of silhouettes, all very fashionista-worthy and chic.
For fall, Öhlin/D creative director Jacob Park portrayed the evolution of a woman’s style — from sweet and girly to more mature and urban.
To deliver a more grown-up look, Park darkened the color palette — which ranged from sorbet tones to shades of black and brown — and kept the silhouette more graphic.
