Namilia NYFW S/S 2018
The Namilia Spring/Summer 2018 NYFW Show was one for the ages. Doing what they have been known to do, which is to stir up controversy, and Namilia did not disappoint. For their Fall/Winter 2017 NYFW Show they patterned their designs around a part of the body that is unique to the male physique. This season, they did a 180 and patterned their designs on the part of the body that is uniquely female. Namilia has the most ingenious way of incorporating their “theme” into their designs. I would have never thought to do what they did, but more importantly to do it with taste. From swimwear to casualwear and even some garments that were pure couture the “theme” was always apparent in each outfit.
In most shows, the soundtrack is not very important, because it is usually just a song or two that the designer felt would put the audience into the mood. Well Namilia decided to take a completely different route. The music chosen was a mashup of a very, very popular classic Disney song and one of the most colorful pop culture quotes in the past several years. This was the only show that I have ever been to, that even the sound and lighting crew filmed it with their smartphones. Please do yourself a favor and search YouTube for the show with the original soundtrack. You will not be disappointed.
By the way, I have purposely tried to remain a tad bit vague, mainly because there was no way that I could do the show justice in words. See it for yourself...
