Twice a year, fashion designers, models, editors and bloggers descend upon Lincoln Center for New York Fashion Week. New collections are revealed and trends emerge while the fashion industry documents every happening and fashion enthusiasts look on eagerly.
Fashion lovers the world over get swept up in the excitement of the eight-day trade show, but there are others who simply don’t get the hype. The blatant and seemingly never-ending racism and lack of size diversity turn many off to New York Fashion Week. Their thinking goes: if they won’t include us, what’s the point of even paying attention?
There’s also the reality that the majority of the collections shown are neither affordable nor immediately accessible. It’s hard to get excited about #NYFW if you’re not seduced by the fantasy of designer clothes you may never own or fit.
Still, there are new promising designers, talented, boundary-breaking models and refreshing style inspiration present at Lincoln Center if you dig deep.
