NYFW Day 1: Brock Collection/Ulla Johnson

Day one at NYFW has concluded. Today we bring you some highlights of what opening day at the tents looked like for Fall/Winter 2017. We start with the Brock Collection. Never heard of them? Ok here is the rundown. The design team consists of a husband and wife, Laura Vassar and Kris Brock who won the top prize at the CFDA/Vogue fashion fund award. Here comes their first presentation since their big win. We enjoyed this collection and once again from the looks of things, textures and luxe furs continue to make strong statements for next fall (although we prefer faux, we’ll take the real deal as inspiration). There were lady-like looks including pencil skirts, poufy dresses and polished daywear. We loved the cinched waistlines, plaids and gingham patterns with nude and camel tones. Another collection that we enjoyed was Ulla Johnson. Her pieces had bohemian elements with exceptional outerwear tailoring. Knit ruffled dresses, florals and velvet boots all were part of the story in this collection that was not just uplifting but ultra feminine. A solid start to New York Fashion Week!
