New York Fashion Week is well under way in the "concrete jungle where dreams are made of". I have been checking out #nyfw on Instagram and seeing all of my favourite fashion bloggers attending amazing shows. One that really stood out was the Tommy Hilfiger Spring/Summer 2015 show.
The ready-to-wear (RTW) collection was said to be inspired by Mr Hilfiger's love for the rock n' roll era. He celebrated some of his very favorite musicians - the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, The Doors - showcasing their music on the runway and even asked some of their daughters to model for the show! Georgia May Jagger, offspring of Mick, opened the show and Ella Richards, the 18-year-old granddaughter of Stones guitarist Keith Richards, also modeled. Sitting in the front row was Alexandra Richards, Keith's other daughter. And Tara Ferry, son of singer and songwriter Bryan Ferry, played the drums during the show.
"I've always been inspired by music and musicians, from the very very beginning," Hilfiger said in a backstage interview. "You look at the iconic rock stars from the '60s and '70s and the way they dressed and the influence they had on the fashion world. I wanted to take that and make it modern for today."
As US News reported; the theme of iconic rock was echoed even in the impressive invitations: They came in the form of small vinyl records, bearing the guest's seat number. The show's set was a mix of bright color, grandeur and whimsy. As one entered the massive hall of the Park Avenue Armory, the name of the designer appeared in huge, movie-theater style lights. The floor was faux grass and flower beds, with the initials "TH" spelled out. A huge musical stage bearing two drummers loomed over the runway.
