Spring fashion was in full throttle on Friday as female backed designers such as Alice + Olivia, Cynthia Rowley and Markarian displayed their vibrant, whimsical and uplifting Spring 2022 collections.
Alice + Olivia designer, Stacey Bendet gave us something to smile about with a spring line that featured a plethora of bold and cheery colors. Ranging from solid blue, green, orange, yellow, pink, black and white in dresses, skirts, and pantsuits that were all showcased in live installations with each one including performances by female artists. The standout numbers...full rainbow and floral prints along with a smiley face floor length skirt with a matching shirt that read “Take the time to smile!”
It was all about good vibes at Cynthia Rowley’s runway show displaying her latest collection. Easy breezy fashions in a pastel palette sashayed down the catwalk stationed at Battery Park’s waterfront. Highlights included flowing long dresses, bodysuits, funky bell bottoms, feathered tops and a snowsuit made of sleeping bag-like material.
Alexandra O’Neill, Founder and Designer of Markarian premiered her ready-to-wear Spring/Summer 2022 collection for the first time at New York Fashion Week through an official runway show at the iconic Rainbow Room. The collection featured 38 looks “filled with custom embroideries, delicate trims, and exquisite fabrics," the designer said, "We’ve paired elaborately hand-beaded boleros with satin skirts, sustainable silk-mohair knitwear pieces with embroidered linens, organic printed silks with Swarovski trims, and subtle shimmering brocades with organza ruffles."
Creator of NYFW, Fern Mallis was on hand to reassure us that fashion will continue to march on, “This is the fashion industry, it changes, it moves. The creativity is paramount. Everybody’s working so hard to make a difference and to bring that energy back.”
