Street Fashion Week NYFW FW19
Street Fashion Week is a platform created to offer emerging high-end luxury streetwear designers a voice during New York and Los Angeles fashion week.
On Saturday, September 15th, 2018, two navy veterans by the Instragram handle, @significantproblems will be presenting their military-inspired, futurist collection at Street Fashion Week during New York Fashion Week. These emerging street style designers have created military-inspired looks featuring vest-like bodices, belt-like straps that wrap around the body, see-through masks, and loose fitted trousers.
Street Fashion Week: NYFW FW19
As part of NYFW, Street Fashion Week offers emerging artists and designers the opportunity to further permeate the fashion industry ecosystem. Curated streetwear pieces from emerging designers such as @significant problems are ones to watch and further speaks to the direction that street style is headed. The innovative looks from emerging street style designers elevates this year’s Street Fashion Week’s theme of “Forward to the Future,” as streetwear continues to make its presence known in the fashion world.
Streetwear isn’t a new phenomenon. As a byproduct of wider subcultural movements from the California skate culture of the late 20th century, to the expressive movement voiced by a host of African-American artists from cities like New York, street style has been evolving since the 1970s.
Notable designers such as Virgil Aboh, now artistic director to one of the most revered fashion houses – Louis Vuitton menswear, has been pivotal in shaping how we approach street style. Through these designers perspectives, we become exposed to street style as a forward thinking movement. Street style has the power to merge a niche culture of unique emerging artists and designers with longstanding, established fashion houses to express ideas where voids can be filled and designers can push boundaries.
