New York Fashion Week: Brandon Maxwell Fall 2017
Luxury women’s RTW label Brandon Maxwell presented their Fall 2017 collection at New York Fashion Week.
The Fall show notes addressed the designer’s struggles, since starting his line, with pressure – both from the industry and its already high standards. He said it was “Create from my heart.” He also wrote that he was “ready to let go of what people want from [him].”
It was very encouraging because we got the chance to see Maxwell test the waters of progressing from his signature of abbreviated palette eveningwear.
“All the leather, the diamonds, the fur,” said Maxwell backstage, speaking to his fashion fantasies as a youngster in Texas.
The collection featured a lot of dark colors, bright colors, leather, fur and suede.
Standout pieces included a fur jacket, bar-skirt, disco suit coated allover in Swarovski crystals, knits, a sweetheart neckline jumpsuit, a minidress with a multilayered collar, or a long-sleeved shirt with matching blue-green cigarette trousers.
At show’s end, Mariah Carey’s “Fantasy” played inside of the room.
