In light of #Covid19 restrictions, Hellurrrandom is giving its readers a throwback to the most amazing shows from the Fashion Weeks. Up on the blog, we are throwing it back to New York Fashion Week Spring 2020 Collections for some nostalgia and happy vibes. Enjoy.
NYFW Spring 2020 saw Maki Oh on its streets once again, showcasing adire-tye dye-fabric and some of the models in hair style inspired by 90 animation, The Boondocks. I loved the richness of the adire fabrics, the jersey shirt dress, the elements of fringing, interesting knots, old school elements. Parts of this collection were featured at Lagos Fashion Week 2020.
Nonnistics, a fashion brand from the heart of Lagos featured at the New York Fashion Week Spring SS20. It showcased its ‘Erin’ collection under the umbrella of Oxford Fashion Studio. This was a classy but slightly edgy collection, featuring dresses made from velvet, leather, tafetta in navy, plum, green, black, with puffy and layered sleeves and tails and other dramatic embellishments. The collection also featured blouses and pants.
