Style Fashion Week was one of the alternative designer showcases with designers that defected from IMG. Malan Breton has had a good year. He had an elegant menswear collection, released an autobiographical film and presented his spring 2016 in New York's best ballroom.
Gotham Hall is one of the most dramatic venues in Midtown Manhattan. It has a soaring domed ceiling and elaborate chandeliers. Unlike IMG and KCD Worldwide's policy of exclusion this season, the producers of Style Fashion Week welcomed any press committed to reporting on fashion.
The collection had many of Malan Breton's signature colors of vivid fuschia and turquoise. The daywear included slim, tailored suits in the most luxurious fabrics. The evening wear was executed in beautiful prints and silks. The silhouettes were full-skirted gowns or short cocktails dresses in flattering seam details.
Every model on the runway was stunning. There was a wide range in age and gender fluidity. It was a testament to the clothing that they looked great on everyone. Malan Breton himself has always been the most humble designer at his fashion shows. Soft-spoken and sweet, I caught him the night before the show at a party, and he expressed how nervous he was. I assured him that every collection he has ever presented was gorgeous. While I am far from the person to say so, he always reacts as if it was the first time he has received such a compliment.
