Design has always been personal and every great designer goes out with a story to tell. To truly understand what this means we must travel beyond the obvious parameters of color, texture, and drape and deeper into the way the garments makes us feel. Designers wereÂ boldly emotional in this effort as theyÂ presented collections dripping with tense and sometimes euphoric sensations.

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK FW15: DAY 7Â and stay up to date with live updates from the Runway here!
Proenza Schouler designers Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez Â are always up for the challenge of defining a trend. There’s always something peculiarly interesting about the way that elements come to life and we all become convinced that this isn’t strange- it’s actually necessary. Delpozo marched to this same beat with a collection full of unusual color and ethereal textiles. Slightly askew yet perfectly tailored trousers and outerwear forced us to rethink shape as we found that there is a way to have both less and more.
We’ve grown to expect a lot from Marchesa and that’s exactly what they’ve delivered in their latest collection. Breathtaking fabrics that shimmered and swayed in the air lingered seductively as we traveled through a palette of rich reds, heavenly sky tones, and gilded metals. Bibhu Mohapatra had an equally emotional story to tell with his collection. A palette of black, white, and grey doesn’t usually elicit emotion from the viewer, unless of course the fabrics are actually hand painted and so delicately created that they can’t truly be appreciated with the naked eye. The designer sent out a legion of sombre, yet confident pieces inspired by the recent loss of his father.
Turning workwear into statement making transitional pieces is something has been the standard of the Boss brand for years. This season the design house reminds us of how to dress confidently as we’re offered a lineup of refreshingly modern looks. Stone grey, black, and gunmetal add a surprising sense of intrigue to linear cuts.
