NYFW RUNWAY REVIEW | SPRING/SUMMER 2016 | JEREMY SCOTT | THE TELEVISIONARY
The New York Fashion Week fun continues on as Jeremy Scott brings a burst of fun and color onto the runway. Now I must admit, I have just recently became a fan of Jeremy Scott's artistry. In the past I found it to be too out there, and I didn't really appreciate his work for what it was. Sometimes as a creative, I can genuinely admit that in the past I had a certain idea of what great design is, and anything that was contrary I would dismiss. Not to say I was negative or outspoken about it, but that is what went on in my head whenever I was confronted with a contrary vision. I now know better, and can truly say I expanded that idea by kicking the proverbial walls down in the box I stuck myself into. Fashion is art, and if all art were created to look the same, then life on Earth would be quite a boring one to say the least.
From the moment the dimmed lights became brighter, and the model walked out I sat there with a huge smile on my face. From the deep reverent mood of the Givenchy show to the dark, street smart look from Alexander Wang, NYFW has presented a range of moods and stories. Jeremy Scott's collection was like a brief electric shock that jolts you out of your previous thoughts. This collection like others was from another era, I struggled with the exact era, because for some reason I got late 60's to early 70's, and at times would see pieces that reminded me of the 80's. My former fashion history professor would be very disappointed in me. *sighs*
Many thoughts ran through my head as I watched the live broadcast continue on. The bold prints, mile-high hair, and doll like make up reminded of the film "The Valley of the Dolls" on acid. After a while I simply let go of trying to dissect the collection, and simply enjoy it as it is. My favorite looks were the halter tops and mini-skirts, that swimwear look with the bow, and lets not forget the vintage box tv set handbag LOVEEE!!!!!!!!!!!
