The Best of NYFW: SS18

Instead of focusing on what’s trendy this fashion week, Posture’s Fashion Editor takes you through some of New York Fashion Week’s top therapeutic shows that transport us out of the unsettling reality of today by providing disruptive social commentary, nostalgia of our carefree youth, and a shared hope of a more paradisiacal future.
 

THE BLONDS

Inspired by their love of music and the artists that inspire them most, David and Phillipe Blond worked with reflective materials and playful silhouettes to create their own version of a platinum paradise.

MAISON THE FAUX 

Maison The Faux’s SS18 collection offers mermaid dresses in sequins and striped tulle, red plastic bags, and graphic prints to create an alternate universe in which everyone can be themselves by letting go of mass media’s idea of what is trendy and beautiful.

The former fashion industry art director and buyer has shifted her focus to photography, production and fashion editing for Posture Mag, the world's #1 magazine, in her unbiased opinion. She finds inspiration in color, clowns, punks, clown punks, sewer rats, Martha Stewart, things that piss her off, things that make her laugh, the pee-garbage smell of summer in New York City, Heidi Fleiss' obsession with birds and being too drunk at brunch. Any questions?
