NYFW Recap #4 of 4 – Raquel Allegra SS16 Presentation

The last show of the week that I was able to go to was the Raquel Allegra SS16 Presentation. This presentation was located at the Industria Superstudios again, but this time in a more spacious studio. Although it was Raquel Allegra‘s first NYFW show, she presented with the quality of a seasoned-designer. Her pieces for SS16 carried a vintage theme with splashes of tie-dye prints. Almost every outfit composed of deconstructed layers and fabrics of silk and linen. The models were circled around an original-designed mandala by Briana Sophia Young, which centered the studio, and the colors of the mandala blended perfectly with the SS16 line. The bright tie-dye hues made the room feel alive and added energy to the crowd. Of attendance was actress Marisa Tomei. I was able to snap a picture of her with the star of the show, designer Raquel Allegra. Below are some pictures of the presentation! Click an image to see images in a slideshow. That wraps up my NYFW recap series! I look forward to next year’s NYFW…

It is the one month count down until World Mastercard Fashion Week in Toronto and I am doing as much as I can to get some serious inspiration for when I work that gig. A good half of my friends are still in school right now, or they are working part-time. For me, I am working and getting serious about planning my future as a Masters student at Columbia University. I have been preparing my notes, practice tests and additional research. For today, I have been reading my Taschen book, full of fashion ads from the 20th century, in the hopes that when it is time for me to attend Fashion Week, I will look trendy, original and classic all at once. Point being: dream while others are sleeping. Book – Taschen Books Shorts – Forever21 Thanks for reading! 🙂 ?
