Fashion week is in full swing here in New York City! Regardless of Nemo coming in and trying to ruin our good time, people still showed up in their best to support and watch the amazing designs of several different designers. This past Saturday was no different. The launch party for “New York Men’s Fashion Week” took place at the Roosevelt Hotel in the heart of New York
City. The designers featured were Janet Zheng, Andrew Nowell and Ray Vicente.
As a newbie in the fashion world, I have to say I was very impressed by each of the designers. Their aesthetics were on point in terms of the what each designer was going for. Ray’s line definitely had an international feel to it, with rich uses of the color green. Andrew’s line was more of the norm you would see in an issue of GQ but with an amazing addition to it- fur accessories such as shoes, hats and gloves. Not a fur fan myself, but it did look interesting paired off with the suits each of the men wore. To finish the night off. Janet had some amazing designs with jackets amongst other items with a great use of purple and white. All in all, it was a great show.
WM Michael Reid did an amazing job emceeing the event, giving great introductions to each of the designers and giving them time at the end of each of their shows to talk to the press and audience. Check out for more of New York Men’s Fashion Week as a separate event, as that launches in June.
