From Kanye to Runway, Street Designers Strut at NY Fashion Week
Having been worn by Kanye West, Pharrell, and Tyler the Creator, Dertbag and other up-and-coming fashion designers made their way to the Style Fashion Week runway at Cipriani this New York Fashion Week.
Headed by 21 year-old Philip Post, Dertbag, an emerging Connecticut brand, appeared on the Style Fashion Week stage alongside Shay Kawaii, H33M, Chicago Playground, Adriana Sahar, Emma Altman, Andre Emery and other emerging designers this past week. While Style Fashion Week has been known for supporting established, emerging and international designers since their beginnings in 2011, this season it supported the increasingly popular streetwear culture. These young brands and designers are often the inspiration behind luxury giants, however
Style Fashion Week helps to share the cost of these major productions—providing designers the platform to display their work on the same level as their luxury competitors. Guests enjoyed Notorious Pink Rosé as they mingled in the expansive art market, featuring artwork by Derek Gores, Adam Thompson, UnCutt Art and works from LUMAS Gallery. Models were beautified by Davines sustainable hair care, while VIP’s and guests enjoyed cosmetics gifts by Onsen. Vezt music app brought industry executives to the crowd as upcoming artists including Jae Hall, Amanda Holley, Chris Stylez, Arielle and Vyse performed between shows. Essentia kept guests hydrated throughout the events.
