This week one of the biggest annual fundraising events took place at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York City, the Met Gala. Showcasing a spectacular range of designer outfits worn by A-list celebrities, including the likes of Jlo, Cardi B, Hailey Beiber and many more.
The extravagant red carpet event has a different theme every year, this year’s theme for the Met Gala was Camp: Notes On Fashion. Prior to the annual event, designers are paired with attendees and have the hands-on task to design and make an outfit reflecting the chosen theme for their celebrity guest.
Lady Gaga attended the Met in a cerise pink Brandon Maxwell gown, which surprised by standing press after the gown then split into another three outfits.
Kim Kardashian West attended in custom wet look gown by Manfred Thierry Mugler finished with pleats and raindrop embellishments.
Anna Wintour attends in a floral floor-length gown with candyfloss pink feather embellishments by Chanel.
Serena Williams catches attention in a canary yellow Versace gown covered in pink embellished flowers and a tailback trail.
Ashley Graham wears a retro look designed by the iconic Dan Dapper in Gucci
Kylie and Kendal Jenner both wear Versace gowns with elaborate feather detailing in lilac and mango orange.
Ciara arrived in an emerald green dress with a high side split by Dundas finished with an exaggerated ruffle feathered trail and off the shoulder sleeves.
Jlo wore a silver heavy embellished deep neckline gown by Versace, which took over 60 days to complete with each fringe beaded by hand.
Cardi B turned heads in a deep rouge custom Thom Browne gown, the down filled silk organza dress was hand embroidered with 3 million feathers.
With Fashion Week quickly approaching, we’re excited to examine and highlight our thoughts on the newest collection – being referred to as a capsule by many – by Nina Cuso, one of the most unique and most sought-out new designers in today’s fashion industry.
Nina Cuso is considered an edgy, youthful addition to the industry, so this collection is a very much anticipated entrance for the young designer. Her label, which launched in 2018, featured trendy and eclectic spins on blazers, hoodies, and coats that entranced those in the industry and pinned her as a designer to watch. Cuso’s Fall 2018 collaboration with Jaxon Yang is a huge indicator that her coming capsule will be something to pay attention to. Their design expertise had collided to create some classic looks with unexpected twists, we’re talking unique necklines, high slits, and lines that are aesthetically pleasing to every eye – even the modern consumer who’s not watching the runway.
Cuso is expecting to steer the buzz of her upcoming capsule toward her platform, which is focused heavily on social change and inclusiveness of all gender identities and body shapes. Her movement focuses on respect and tolerance and promotes building awareness of social issues through her designs. She’s much more than all talk – her line is inclusive of all body shapes, sizes, gender expressions, and disabilities. She offers custom clothing designs that can be tailored exclusively for any and all body types and abilities, making her a force for change in a world that sometimes feels like it’s not opening up to everyone quite as much as it should.
With that in mind, Cuso is a designer to watch as Fashion Week approaches. With the next generation focused on the morality and beliefs behind every company they buy from, Nina Cuso may be starting the next wave of designers and businesses who use their powers for good social change – and looking good while doing it.
This outfit is very New York City chique. Although it was designed for the spring/summer collection, to me it has an autumnal feel with the moderate pastel colours fused together in the top. This look is versatile, as it opens itself up to both formal and casual wear, for example it can be played down by wearing pumps by day, and more glam by adding heels for evening wear.
The perfect accessory is the Mulberry bag which gives it that City look, and together with the top it gives it that touch of class. The style of these cropped trousers is relevant to the season, and the colours are pitched at the right level too; it's a desirable ensemble, both pieces complement each other effortlessly.The top alone will attract much attention, therefore no need to accessorise this further; the ruffled neckline adds an air of sophistication.You will feel ready to face anything that lies ahead during the day in this sublime outfit.
