Yesterday, GG hit up the Katty Xiomara NYFW show at Pier 59 in Chelsea, and it was more amazing than we thought it would be! Her collection was innovative, inspiring, chic, and unique, filled with metallic and cool tones like silver, black, purple, and blue with a touch of warmth through various red and orange shades. Her signature gold flats were a staple throughout, and any fashionable alternative to 6-inch heels sounds good to us! As she simply touched upon the three main color groups with these specific hues, her focus remained in the cut. There was a mixture of long and short, yet in every outfit, there was a flowy organza-constructed anchor that was consistent. Whether it be a tight top and a loose skirt or a jacket paired with a wide leg pant, nothing was overly restrictive, and with many added frills and ruffles woven throughout her billowing yet architectural garments, her looks were accessible and comfy yet utterly stylish. Moreover, as her shapes were flamboyant and irresistible, her patterns, like the colors, were simple and uncomplicated, consisting of mostly thin yet widely parted checks and stripes along with polka dots and dotted Swiss. All in all, many of her looks resembled a trendy and modern take on subtly preppy work wear through her various jackets, ties, shirts, pants, and trench coats. It was work appropriate with a much-needed edge. In short, her play on shapes, especially in her jackets, was rousing and complimentary combined with her straightforward and minimal use of color and pattern, allowing for her silhouettes to take center stage and emphasize the body and its many facets. Moreover, the hair and makeup focused on the “ugly pretty” that is ever present in the fashion world, presenting a new narrative of beautiful. We love you Katty, and we can’t wait to see what you do next!
Below are just a few of the stunning looks from the Katty Xiomara fashion show.
A very important and fun side note: Pandemonia and J. Alexander were in the house, and it was amazing to see such provocative fashion icons enjoying the show as much as we did!
