Jonathan Simkhai’s fall-winter 19 collection encapsulated the modern woman with fluid feminine textures and redone classics.
Christian Siriano hosted a celebration afterparty for the debut for his Spring/Summer 2019 show at Tao Downtown. It was a great night to wrap up his iconic runway collection which merged fashion with politics as his show made a political statement rallying for Cynthia Nixon for New York governor. Svedka sponsored the night with delicious drinks from their line of products and tunes by Bella the DJ for the guests to dance the night away.
Agatha Ruiz de la Prada showed her collection at Google’s offices in NYC. She showed her designs in conjunction with emerging designers from Latin America at the panel held to celebrate these emerging artists at New York Fashion week. We went backstage with StyleCraft to see how the hair look was done. The lead hair stylist Jorge Luis demonstrates how to create perfectly effortless curls with this small flat iron.

Epic Records hosted an awesome event at Sony Hall with Zara Larsson performing. Lines wrapped around the block on both sides as fans wanted to see their idol perform at an intimate event. The venue was a wonderful speakeasy type of lounge with a dance floor and a bar so everyone could adequately enjoy themselves. Larsson took the stage in true New York Fashion Week fashion with a red zebra striped jumpsuit with belt accents around the waist and neckline. Fans went crazy when she took the stage and sang her some of most famous hits, “Lush Life”, “Symphony” and “Never Forget You”.
With a jam-packed schedule and the ever changing – newly restricting industry protocol it’s become increasingly hard for a young member of the press, such as myself, to find the excitement I once had during this time of year. However, VFILES has managed to reignite that dwindling light of New York Fashion Week enthusiasm.
The Knockturnal was on the scene for United States Tennis Association’s (USTA) star-studded 2016 Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day presented by Hess.
