After hitting the 70’s with trendy low-rise jeans and taboo-breaking exposed belly buttons in the 80’s, the controversial bare midriff celebrates its big comeback in the SS15 collections — both ready-to-wear and couture. From Dior, Oscar de la Renta and Fendi to Balmain, Mugler and Diane von Furstenberg – fashion designers have once again succumbed to the bare belly temptation.
NY Fashion Week is all about discoveries- new trends, next season’s color palette, top designers’ new creations and inspirations are revealed. I love the excitement, suspension and that mysterious aura spreading above the runways just before the show starts. But it is also a thrilling opportunity to meet people, come across new brands and discover up-and-coming fashion designers from all over the world. And, this is exactly how I met Alessia and Simona Iuliucci from Italy and learnt about their label Atelier Sorelle Iuliucci while attending the NY Couture Fashion Week at the Crowne Plaza Times Square on 5th September.
