THROUGHOUT THIS SEASON'S SHOWS FEATURED DURING NEW YORK FASHION WEEK, ONE THING WAS OBVIOUSLY EVIDENT. IT WAS NOT THE TREND MESSAGE OF FRINGE, TIE DYE OR CROCHET. NOR WAS IT THE REPETITIVE PAJAMA DRESSING OR PRINT MIXING. IN FACT, IT WAS THE CONSISTENCY OF DANCE FEATURED THROUGHOUT
Opening Ceremony featured New York City Ballet dancers on their runway in a brilliantly choreographed routine that had the audience believe the lead model had fallen on the runway, before breaking out into a lyrical dance number. The models behind followed suit and the entire runway transformed into a modern day ballet. Fashion influencers observed from front row, the direct and powerful correlation between dance and fashion, whilst witnessing art in the form of garments and grace in the form of ballet.
