NOLCHA Fashion Week showcased some of the best independant designers around. Fashion junkies, celebrities, and the media flocked to Chelsea Piers this week to check out some of the hottest fashion and we were not disappointed. Although there were so many great looks and trends on the runway this week, we've selected our three favorites trends from NOLCHA that we can't wait to see more of!
Tulle Skirts: Mermaid sillouhettes with an abundance of tulle were prominent during NOLCHA Fashion Week. Adolfo Sanchez perfected this look with three stunning gowns of different colors and slightly different styles. His looks that featured this trend were romantic, sophisticated and breathtakingly beautiful. His show-stopping final piece was a black leather dress with an over-the-top tulle skirt at the bottom and emphasized with a bold feather collar. Studio 6th Sense also showcased this look with an aysemmetrical dominatrix-style gown and Andressa Leao debuted a stunning short cupcake dress with the skirt made of tulle. It was a fresh and young take on the other tulle skirts showed during the week.
Black Leather: Black leather was a major forerunner at NOLCHA Fashion Week this year. Designer Stephen Goudeau of Studio 6th Sense incorporated it into his whole collection, which was entirely black and white. By using the leather along with other fabrics, the designer managed to keep the collection looking classy, yet daring. Adolfo Sanchez also added a classic black leather dress into his runway collection.
Floral Motif: Bright and bold flower-themed outfits livened up the runway this year. Diana Simaan's vibrant collection showcased colorful flowers in various looks. Andressa Leao departed from the pink and fuschia of Simaan's collection and stuck with yellow to showcase her flower power gown. She also donned a floral pattern on a regal black and gold gown.
