[Day 2] of my first New York Fashion Week (NYFW) was low-key. I spent most of the day hanging out with my best friend in Soho. Aside from a quick presentation for BLDWN, the day was NYFW-free. I dressed more casual — can’t go wrong with a plain white tee and high-waisted mom jeans, which can easily be dressed it up with a blazer and boots.
Absolutely beautiful presentation (my first ever) that had all the laid-back yet put-together outfits I wish I owned more of. BLDWN approaches getting dressed with cool & effortless sophistication. Of all the pieces I saw, the orange outfit was my favorite (as most of my followers agreed).
The biggest takeaway of the collection was cool modernity with an artful connection to the late 60s, yet customized for today’s generation. Classic and timeless the collection included — contrasting colored sleeves with checkered pants, soft blazer contrasted with leather skirt. The orange sweater and pant set was my favorite, as was the ability to talk to the models (an experience you don’t get on the runway). The clothes feel feminine but not girly, and strong but not masculine: casual, yet composed.
