Born in 2015, STAUD by Sarah Staudinger has quickly amassed a following via Instagram that has made all fashion insiders clamor for her modern yet feminine take on the contemporary tote. Widely known for her Shirley PVC bag and Moreau bucket bag, it has risen to fame quite so rapidly that every editor and influencer owns a bag or three.

With only 3 years since its founding, STAUD set up its first ever NYFW show and certainly did not disappoint. The collection focused on whimsical and quirky designs that was an ode to mod: crochet, macrame, plaid, and color-blocked outfits that came in hues of green, blue, & yellow pastels down to white billowy dresses and camel toned trenches. The spotlight of the show certainly came in the form of its accessories as the new bags for SS19 not only offered a new take on STAUD favorites but a few bags also came in different shapes & architectural designs which is new yet refreshing for the young designer.

Paying homage to the hit Australian show Number 96, the collection played around with the idea of 70s fashion with a touch of what Zimmermann is known for - bohemian sexy chic. Although it has foregone all the ruffles and florals the designers are known for, this season's pieces are still widely feminine and focuses on silhouettes that still make a Zimmermann girl feel empowered.

Without a doubt street style stars are here to create a statement coming in the form of their clothes or even accessories. Case in point: designer shoes that make the streets of New York a little more green with envy as they stomp the NYFW concrete runway.

Rain nor shine could have prevented the Rodarte show to prevail and leave its mark as the sibling duo came back to the runways - or in this case, Marble Cemetery's concrete pavements - of NYFW. After a 2-year hiatus, Kate and Laura sent down the runway a flurry of heavy tulle, metallics, sequins, ruffles, lace, and everything that a true Rodarte piece has been known for. The collection exuded romance and elegance one can only situate in a bevy of daydreams that intertwined with fairytales only to come to know that this collection has embodied a reality one can only hope for.

Prabal Gurung wastes no time to challenge the mainstream media to embrace culture other than that of a westernized one. For his September 2018 collection, he shines light on his Nepalese roots via his set design and his collection's vivid colors. Seeing it as a whole, the collection encourages more of the sportswear silhouette having a lot of the womenswear pieces with cutouts and pull cords to cling to their bodies and menswear, a first for Gurung, with windbreakers and knee-length bottoms.

Claudia Li's September 2018 collection is an ode to Spring and her Asian heritage. As recent events have sparked an international interest on Asian representation, she feels that her collection not only contributes to this but also touches a personal narrative that sends forth a message to the industry that Asians also have a place in fashion, as is everywhere else.

Gone were the slinky body-hugging dresses Jonathan Simkhai is well-known for and in comes ethereal prairie numbers that were reminiscent of a 60s garden party with crochet and cotton dresses, cargo pants paired with flowy tops, and a color palette that ran through the shades of pastel and cream whites. It was indeed a more relaxed and intimate presentation as models were sent down a lavish greenery setting mingling with each other and fashion insiders being able to see all the lush details in each design.

Known for his textures and asymmetrical cuts, Han Chong has taken it up the notch by introducing vibrant patterns and prints to his craft. Seen from his front row, the usual favorites for Self-Portrait donned in playful ruffles and lace -- his collection on the other hand displayed more than what has been seen in recent seasons. More color, more prints, and a surprising display of textures by way of knitted and crocheted pieces sashayed through the runway.

Not to anyone's surprise Jeremy Scott has yet again proved that his collections, although out of this world, would continually evoke conversation over its over the top & well thought-out design. Back in February, his looks went to the future with sci-fi written all over it. This season however, he goes back to the past and pays homage to none other than Jeremy Scott himself, teen years. References to the 90s aesthetic of club-kid neon, glitter, grunge, and bold letters were all evident in his collection.
