The PVD Lady Project was on hand last week to capture the best of Style Week North East at The Providence G. The following post is a few of our favorite looks from each night, Monday through Thursday (unfortunately we missed the Friday night show), and our thoughts on what trends you can expect to see on shelves in the coming seasons. The idea behind each photo was to emphasize how materials, makeup, and hair were utilized by each designer. All photos were shot and edited by PVD Lady Project Member Juniper Jean. Monday night featured the designers Antwan Byrd, Chaz Aracil, and Samuel Vartan. Byrd's line for DeBrichhio caught our eye as an incredibly adoptable trend going forward. He ran, what seemed to be, an Adidas-inspired line with streamlined combinations of thick color blocking. Aracil showed us a truly inspiring blend of contrast between dark colors with the saturated tactile swaths of material that came straight out of Barbarella. He wowed us with powerful up-do's that effortlessly magnified the outfit as one.
The hits continued on Tuesday night with Mode Mer by Angela Zampell, Clothes Horse Clothing, and Evolue Apparel by Susan Zematis. Mer's playful models and strong retro feel was a welcome departure from the current 90's grunge fashion trend, we hope that refined 50's glam is here to stay. The models of Clothes Horse Clothing looked almost saccharine while draped in cream colored and pink lace and heavy pearls.
Wednesday night had strong wearable lines from Valentina Oppezzo of instilla, Jeffery Dickerson, and Earl Battle. Valentina Oppezzo's 80's inspired instilla line is 100% Vegan and at least 50% eco friendly, a sustainable trend that we hope to see take over the fashion world in the coming years. Jeffery Dickersons ready to wear collection was luxurious, shimmery, and had just enough edginess to turn heads.
On Thursday night we saw collections by Angelica Timas of Chikke, Sarah Prost with Yellow Clover, and Carissa Lynne Designs, all of which had their own particular taste that we absolutely fancied. These looks were elegant and refined with an individual touch of regality. The designers made a statement with elegant fabrics that resembled silk. We loved how each outfit looked effortlessly minimal and ready to wear; easily adding to the overall appeal factor.
Again, big thanks to The Providence G & all of its contributors for another successful season.
