Rubin Singer Channels Deep Space for His Spring 2017 Collection

Rubin Singer held his Spring 2017 collection preview in the intimate spaces at Highline Stages. He presented 32 looks, ranging from cocktail-chic to red carpet glam. His collection is titled “Into the Deep,” which centers around the concept of deep space exploration. “I went with this concept because my work is always reflective upon what’s going on at the time. I really wanted to focus into my strengths, and really go deep into them. Conceptually going into outer space felt right,” Singer further explained.

In the past, the designer has done collections based on quantum physics, abstract algebraic functions, and grammar. “I have very cerebral concepts a lot of the time. This one in particular felt that it could go wrong very quickly, you could start going into Barbarella or The Jetsons; but luckily after two weeks of working it out, I feel like I landed in a good spot.”

The ready-to-wear collection took about six months to develop, and then a month to make. Singer develops all of his fabrics and techniques. Everything is custom-made and made in New York.  “The paillettes were custom-printed iridescent foiled plastic. I found several meteor-like rocks that I had found in different places and had them drilled and presented in a way that we could actually embroider them into the fabric. The supernova prints are all about lightspeed and time travel. All the different things came together in different ways, but all referencing outer space,” the designer said.

When asked why he had more of an intimate presentation, rather than a runway show, Rubin replied, “I wanted the presentation in this format because it’s about the clothes. I didn’t want to distract away from it, whether it be the make-up,hair, or shoes. The clothes are already so intricate, I didn’t want to get anything else involved.”

 This season, 27-year-old Melbourne designer Michelle Aznavorian turned to past decades of fashion icons of Studio 54 for inspiration of her S/S17 collection preview in New York.  The Misha Collection designer references classic 1970s and 1980s silhouettes for demure cocktail dresses, jumpsuits, belted coats, and slinky gowns. Intricate hand-beading and embroidery, custom lace, ostrich feathers, silk Devore, and pony leather were among with many luxurious materials that were used to create the feminine clothing. Iconic British model- Jourdan Dunn, opened the show, wearing a black leather mini wrap dress and gloves. She finished the show wearing a dark silver metallic maxi dress with sky-high slit.

Taoray Wang – NYFW September 2014

International designer Taoray Wang‘s (Wang Tao) Spring 2015 collection was her official launch for her namesake brand. She chose to showcase her brand during New York Fashion Week because she felt that the American fashion market was of utmost importance to China. She is known for merging European and Asian cultures and influences throughout her designs, resulting in unique and elegant looks with global appeal. She is currently one of China’s more established and successful designs to date. You can also find her on the board of Shanghai Ribo Fashion Group.

This season’s high-end luxury collection emphasizes the style and power of women from all walks of life. Wang was also inspired by the movie Black Swan‘s soft artistic message and the art of ballet. “I respect and appreciate how difficult it is for busy women to excel in today’s fast-paced environment. My clean, simple and elegant designs express the innate sense of sophistication one notices with powerful women such as my muse- Natalie Portman,” the designer explained.

I thought her collection offered strong yet classic pieces in crisp hues of radiant white, black, bright citrus, blush pink and navy blue. Voluminous sleeves, sheer, an “eagle” print, feathered skirts and dresses and refined suiting were trending on her runway presentation. Her use of her Black Swan inspiration was clearly evident in terms of the feathered fringe skirts, tuxedo jacket and dresses; as well as the structured soft jagged edging of some of the bust lines. Taoray’s debut collection was an overall refreshing and sophisticated breath of fresh air for the modern woman in crazy busy world.
