From Anna Wintour to Cardi B, New York Fashion Week is an event that brings together some of the most influential people in fashion to celebrate the avant-garde ways designers are creating pieces for the seasons ahead. If you, too were also rudely not invited to NYFW, here is a rundown of some of the best shows featuring 2019 fashion items you probably needed to start saving up for, like, yesterday.

5. Tibi

If anyone asks me to explain how to elegantly mix ‘70s and ‘80s fashion with that of the 21st century, I will send them a link to the Tibi NYFW 2018 show. Oversized neutral, pastel power suits and neon shift dresses were the main attraction of the collection, which were supported by fabulous wide-leg trousers and jumpsuits. Tibi has a beautiful way of creating fashion-forward pieces that are still fitting for the life of the everyday woman. This is something that should be appreciated in the world of runway fashion that often stays on the runway.

 4. Phillip Lim

Phillip Lim’s show successfully mastered the art of staying within a specified color palette all the while creating beautiful outfits that did not suffer in the process. Some designers can often feel trapped by only working with the usual black, white and tan color scheme, but Lim seems to find his creativity in the simplicity, using color to add to an outfit not to create it. Lim’s collection takes the usual and flips it on its head. Once in Lim’s hands, a jacket is no longer a jacket. It becomes an oversized belt to deconstruct a simple floral dress.

3. Oscar de la Renta

Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim have been designing for the Oscar de la Renta label for less than a year, but they seem to have already developed a great creative chemistry that was particularly displayed on the runway this NYFW. Without viewing the entire collection, one might think a model was walking too closely to a construction site before the show. But with a cohesive view of the entire assemble it becomes apparent that color and paint splatters are, in fact, a trend to look out for next spring and summer. While you are reaching back into your inner-child with colorful paint stained jeans, why not add some sequins and sparkle to your look? This can be done by adding a few sequins slips and tulle dresses to your closet that will make you feel like you just stepped out as Carrie Bradshaw from “Sex and the City.”

 2. Self-Portrait

Chong began in the fashion industry by working for famous labels and now he has one of his own. Self-Portrait was created in 2013 and has done outstandingly well since. Self-Portrait’s runway was flooded with patterns and asymmetrical silhouettes. Stripes, poka-dots and stars are the foundation of this collection with some slight animal print sprinkled throughout. Though most of the show kept with a navy, white and black palette, we did get some pops of color from a few stripped suits, one featuring lavender and burgundy. Another stand-out piece for Chong was a flowy unmellow-yellow peasant halter grown covered in prairie-like lavender wildflowers that would make anyone feel like they belonged in a romantic novel set in a vibrant field.

1. Ralph Lauren

Besides this being Ralph Lauren’s 50th year in the industry, there is so much to celebrate about the Ralph Lauren’s NYFW collection. Lauren’s runway was flooded with model diversity, representing various ages and ethnicities. This is not a common occurrence in the world of fashion, so it was beyond refreshing to see. Covering those beautifully diverse models was stunning patchwork, tweed, velvet and tribal pattern. Lauren’s collection was a perfect display of how to create new, fresh designs from the styles of the past. This collection hit every trend for the upcoming seasons without trying too hard. Though all the pieces had its own unique look, they all looked as if they came from the same thought, which was so aesthetically pleasing to see. Some of Lauren’s stand-out pieces were a velvet patchwork gown modeled by Gigi Hadid and three-piece wool men’s suit that begged to be brought back to the ‘20s — in the best way possible.
