Recap: New York Fashion Week F/W 2018 Shows at Angel Orensanz Event Space

  This past weekend I took in a series of incredible shows by a mix of international designers as part of this season's New York Fashion Week.  Hosted by Oxygenetix, this season's official NYFW sponsor, the shows were held at the Angel Orensanz Event Space in downtown Manhattan and included designs by Tisharth By Shivani (India), House of Byfield (Netherlands), Light and Shadow Global Fashion Design (China), George Styler (Serbia), Randa Yousrey (Egypt), Anthony Rubio (USA). 

Each show was starkly different from the one before it and very thought provoking.   The collections ranged from vibrant reds and golds, elaborate head dresses, to muted blues and blush tone pinks.  I had favorite looks from each, but my favorite was definitely the dapper looking pups that totally melted my heart :)  Scroll down to check them out.











What do you think of the collections?  Which is your favorite?
