Do you breath, eat and celebrate fashion? Then I’m almost certain that you’ve familiarized NYFW what shows are on at what time while holding your excitement to see finest, wearable and creative fashion collection for the upcoming year streaming your social media, unless of course you’re in front row snapping photos and sharing it live to the rest of the world like a certified fashionista. And in case you don’t have the all details, well, there’s an app for that!
Now for a beauty enthusiast like me who mainly focuses in the obvious like beauty-anything-I-slap-on-my-face stuff, being invited to Daniel Silverstain x SS16 Runway Show and Presentation totally came as a shock and escalated to a full blown excitement and then feeling mortified not knowing what to wear!
While this invitation and realization that I need to dress up and look presentable made me a little nervous, I learned one thing as well. Once you’re there, the nerves go away and you really get to have fun and enjoy the moment. Yes, you need to savor the moment and marvel… wow, creative vibe is strong here!
You can only guess what I did next after arriving at the venue, right? Took out my new camera for a test drive and shoot! Shoot to my hearts content.
Daniel Silverstain SS16 Collection
For Spring/Summer 2016, the collection focuses on the hub of cultures with futurist essence inspired by the most successful world’s fair of the 20th century – Expo67. The color palette is built on neutral hues with contrast shapes and primary colors, representing national flags. Lace and crochet textiles are coated in metallic gloss, and intricate multi-yarn jacquards are mixed with natural wovens – creating soft and relaxed silhouettes.
As Daniel Silverstain’s muses paved the runway accompanied by a futuristic beat, his silver and copper metallic lace leather biker jacket for me, stole the show and all I wanted to do was get up close and take more photos, because both ensembles looked superb and darn it, I want one in my closet!
And KISS Products, one of the show’s sponsors, did a fantastic job complimenting each outfit with the right choice of nail polish shades with the metallic, mirrored effect as the main focal point. I don’t know about you, but I’m loving the look and I can’t wait to try it out! The Spring/Summer collection absolutely looks playful and refreshing to the eyes while hair and makeup was kept minimal to complete the whole look.
Indeed, this is one of my unforgettable experience made possible through blogging and one that has made me caught the fashion fever and solidified my love for photography. And I have to thank you, fabulous readers, for keeping me company and motivating me all these years!
Enjoy the photos and let me know what you think!
