MenslifeDC was fortunate to attend New York Fashion Week. Over a series of articles, we will present many of the fashions that will hit the runway for Fall/Winter 2017. First up was New York Men’s Day (NYMD). The brainchild of AgentryPR, NYMD was started before men’s fashion had a week of their own. The agency had a roster of menswear designers and wanted to create a forum for their hot designers to gain exposure.
While the first NYMD had 6 designers, this season 12 designers presented their looks for Fall/Winter 2017. The presentations were divided into 2 sessions where invited guests could see 6 shows during each session and all at their own pace. The morning shows included Max ‘n Chester, Uri Minkoff, David Hart, Bristol, Kozaburo and Krammer & Stoudt. The second session showcased David Naman, By Robert James, Wood House, Maiden Nor, R. Swiader and Private Policy.
The designers picked to participate each had a different perspective on men’s fashion. Each drew their inspiration from a variety of sources translating into very unique shows and not cookie cutter versions of each other. From the classic style of David Naman and current political expressions from By Robert James, to a fresh take on formal wear from David Hart or the more avant garde looks from Kozaburo or Private Policy, there was truly something for everyone. As a result New York Men’s Day is the perfect event to kick off for New York Fashion Week Men’s.
