This NYFW certainly started off with an electrifying round of catwalk moments! To kick off Day One, Nolcha Shows presented the Spring 2019 ACID NYC show at this season of September New York Fashion Week. The runway showing offered up a playful array of bold patterns, eye-catching wearable art, and statement wardrobe pieces in mens and womenswear.
The indie design brand, created by the New York City-based design team of Evelyn Luna and Scott Chester back in 2014, wanted to focus on the hidden beauty of our everyday surroundings in their latest collection. The food on our dinner tables and vegetables in our gardens became the perfect source for pattern and silhouette inspiration.
The Richard Magazine team was at the event to take in the colorful runway spectacular firsthand. Creative and quirky limited edition prints – like dizzying onion layer patterns and rich textures mimicking artichoke scales – ruled the runway. An architectural midi skirt, crafted into a peeling onion bulb, took the raw material veggie inspo to the next level. But adorning elegant blouses and effortlessly cool pencil skirts, these food-inspired patterns became quite wearable.
Standout accessories in the range included clever handbags shaped like tacos, fruits, and empanadas; a fun sushi roll duffle bag; summer-ready beachwear; and more essential pieces for foodie fashionistas. Or those of us who love adding one-of-a-kind elements to our street styles through unexpected accessorization.
We love that this exciting showcase was a treat to multiple senses!
