Adrian Alicea (Style Fashion Week)
Whats one word that comes to mind when you think of designer Adrian Alicea? One would probably say "eccentric" , out of the box, different, eclectic. Yes they probably would, but the one word that comes to my fashion mind when I think of him is "Genius".
Some fashion shows you attend may seem to mirror others when it comes to the norm and some of them may even be titled as boring, but you will get none of this when dealing with Adrian. When it comes to that thing we call the runway , he takes it very seriously and is willing to go far and beyond to display his creative mindset.
The New York City fashionistas were blessed to be a part of such a fabulous collection this season. Adrian started off with solid patterns and dark colors. Extremely fit male models opened the show sporting long trench overcoats draped with fur. Some waist length and some full body length but all of them neatly constructed to fit perfectly. Muted colors continued throughout the entire collection with specifically placed pops of color . And Adrian didn't leave the women out, the coed selection of models featured the ladies outfitted in form fitted dresses, transparent cocktail dresses and one off the shoulder ensemble that made me yell "Yeahhhh".
In conclusion, this collection encompassed amazing looks from casual event wear to formal evening attire. I must say that Adrian has never disappointed me on the runway and he raised the bar even higher with this one. If you haven't seen one of his shows and you need an enlightening moment in fashion..... meet me there.
