Welcome to our favorite time of the year! New York Fashion week is in full swing, with most shows wrapping up today and tomorrow, but we were so excited to get in on all the style action this past weekend. The city was definitely alive with star-studded shows and glamorous events, drawing fashion enthusiasts from all around the globe. Fall & Winter trends of 2024 took center stage as the most celebrated iconic brands, along with the future tastemakers and creators in fashion, brought the very best to the runways. Amidst the hustle and bustle, our EIC – Erika De La Cruz – had the privilege of attending some standout shows that left a fashionable impression. She wore a sleek sheath in royal silk from DÔEN and (because it was chilly out) paired it with black tights, heels, a blazer and clutch. To pull it altogether – a bow from Ceremonia. Shoutout to George Ngatuvai photos for capturing her chic fit that went all over the city, and stood out at the 6 best (& our favorite) runways from NYFW Fall/Winter 2024. An exhilarating week of style and creativity.
Luxe ready-to-wear & LA based brand, Libertine kicked off New York Fashion Week with a show stopping runway of womenswear and menswear collections at the Starrett-Lehigh building in New York City. Libertine Creative Director, Johnson Hartig, offered an unparalleled approach to luxury with his whimsical and eclectic designs. For the new collection, he drew inspiration from creative individuals including Jean Cocteau, Mary Quant, Peggy Guggenheim, and Lord Byron. It was a visual feast, embracing boldness and joy with vibrant patterns and colors that captivate the eye. From power-clashing flannel to oversized statement blazers, each piece in the showcase exudes personality. Models donned playful accessories such as furry shoes and funky sunglasses, emphasizing the theme with flair. Since its launch in 2001 by Johnson Hartig, Libertine has maintained its commitment to hand-printed and bedazzled pieces while incorporating vintage-inspired elements like the iconic lip print. But got to say we loved the newspaper print pieces that reminded us of our own Vision Boards.
Global Fashion Collective is an extension of Vancouver Fashion Week, giving both up-and-coming and established designers a chance to flaunt their latest designs. It kicked off in October 2017 and has since been hosting exclusive runway events in various fashion hubs across the globe. Their goal is to boost designers’ global presence and get them noticed in new markets worldwide. It’s all about creating a tight-knit community where designers can mingle, make connections, and get their work out there. They collaborated with a diverse range of international talents and featured standout pieces at this year’s NYFW F/W24. Erika got the chance to attend their 2nd show from the first day of fashion week where she saw brands like Studio L7 x R-Infection, Rhea and, LENIFRO. If we’re being honest – the pieces from LENIFRO – were totally rad. Their collection was an inspiration from the bright and musical era of the 80’s and yup we were loving it!

For those seeking a blend of cozy comfort and high fashion this fall, Proenza Schouler will be your go-to. Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, the creative minds behind the coveted brand, are revolutionizing the concept of quiet luxury with their latest collection. We’ve been fans of Proenza Schouler for a while now, ever since this hobo bag came onto the scene.The runway showcased bold statement peacoats and essential outerwear crafted from rich, soft materials, that embody understated elegance. As models strutted down the catwalk, oversized shawls secured with large safety pins added a captivating touch. While the color palette predominantly embraced subdued tones like charcoal and dove grays, classic black, and creamy whites, subtle bursts of peach, vibrant red, and metallic gold were also front and center and provided refreshing accents.

Prabal Gurung poured his heart into his F/W 2024 collection and channeled his grief into a series of breathtaking designs. Each silhouette was carefully crafted to evoke a delicate balance between warmth and melancholy, employing tactile fabrics, striking sculptural shapes, and ethereal gowns. Gurung revealed that the collection was deeply influenced by a personal loss in his native Nepal, a poignant inspiration that reverberated throughout his creations. Through his artistry, Gurung found a cathartic outlet, transforming his pain into garments (Erika can totally relate) that spoke eloquently of resilience, fortitude, and the profound beauty found in embracing vulnerability.
Eckhaus Latta’s collection at was the ultimate ode to Big Apple chic. Their signature blend of downtown edge and avant-garde flair was on full display and had a mesmerizing array of textures and fabrics. From luxe shearling coats layered over featherweight sheer jersey tops to shaggy ribbed knits, each piece exuded effortless cool. It was a masterclass in modern, urban street style that captured the essence of New York City’s fashion scene with undeniable flair. We hope to see this style more on the streets of LA.
There is nothing more classy or classic than a new Tommy Hilfiger collection debuting at New York Fashion Week. Their new collection, dubbed ‘New York Moment’ showcased at Grand Central Station’s Oyster Bar and it couldn’t have been staged in a more fitting location.

Inside, the runway showcased a range of effortlessly stylish pieces, from tailored blazers and relaxed trousers to cozy knitwear and chic outerwear. Each garment exuded a youthful, insouciant energy, perfectly capturing the essence of modern New York style.
