NYFW Reviews: 11 FW '21 RTW Brand Collections (Part 2)


NYFW FASHION REVIEWS PART 2: 11 F/W '21 RTW BRAND COLLECTIONS




New York Fashion Week: 11 More fashion show reviews


In part 1 I covered 11 RTW designers that presented their collection at NYFW. This week I am featuring 11 more RTW brands that presented their collection that I like. I have reviewed a total of 22 ready-to-wear designers. I am reviewing the top collections with some of my favorites looks from their collections. I will cover menswear + womenswear collections from several of the top fashion designers/brands from #NYFW '21.


In part 2, it is the same as part 1: each designer has their individual, unique trends that are a part of their collections. I will be talking about a few of my favorite outfits from each collection that I am sure will be very trendy for FALL '21. I think all brands design a few new trends that they bring new to the industry.


In this NYFW review, I will showcase a photo of one look from each designer brand. Each photo is one of my favorite looks from their collection. I have linked the brand's name that is the title above the photo in the article to their site. Also, you can visit NYFW.com to see each of their presentations. Signing up is free, but you have to sign up to see the collections on their site. Many of the shows are also on Youtube and on the brand's website, too.


Each NYFW collection review includes:

  • The RTW brand/designer introduction

  • Their style/aesthetic

  • Their FW '21 fashion show, film, presentation, etc.

  • I review and describe several looks in their collections that will be a part of the fall '21 fashion trend season.

Raisa Vanessa


Intro

The designers are Raisa and Vanessa Sason. Raisa Vanessa is an Haute Couture and luxury ready-to-wear brand.


Style/aesthetic

The Raisa Vanessa brand is a very glamorous, a timeless luxury apparel brand. They have a lot of inspiring powerful statement pieces. Their designs make people look confident and empowered. They designed several beautiful, artistic, eclectic garments that are very trendy and very stylish. The brand states that "some of their key elements is, dimensional, maximalist designs."


About their show/film/presentation

The Raisa Vanessa fashion show was filmed in an architectural, and futuristic building: the Presidential Symphony Orchestra building. Their fashion film featured ambient techno music. In the film, the models walked in different locations in the building. It enhanced the film and collection, and it kept everything inspiring and creative.


A few trendy looks + their description

Many of the colors in their collection have rich hues of red, orange, gold, black, tan, and brown.

Look 1 Their large sequined dress is a gorgeous dress in brown, made with large brown sequins. It is long-sleeved, belted, and it has shoulder pads. I love short dresses with long sleeves dresses. The extra-large brown sequins that were in the shape of a circle dangled off the entire dress. When the model was walking, the sequins were dangling and moving and reflecting off of the light, so, it is a real shimmery look.

Look 2 The next look that I really enjoyed, and it is in the photo above, was this long- past-the-knee sweater. The sweater has pockets with gold hardware buttons that are decorative. The design is a monochrome look: knit pants with a knit sweater. It looks really stylish with the gloves and the large earrings. All the colors matched while with the entire outfit being blue--display the long sweater, the knit pants, and the sweater underneath.

Ulla Johnson


Intro

Ulla Johnson is a NY-based ready-to-wear label with a following across Europe, Australia, and Asia.


Style/aesthetic

Johnson's brand style is romantic, feminine, vintage design, and modern, fresh design details. They have a very feminine and girly look.


About their show/film/presentation

The show was presented at David H. Koch Theatre. They had a live classical music performance by the Juilliard school. The Collection is really beautiful and feminine, with lots of pretty light colors and lots of prints. Many of the jackets had cocoon-like sleeves. They designed beautiful blouses and blouse-like dresses, with feminine billowy sleeves. the clothing and fashion designs are very graceful and elegant. There is happiness in the collection, the fashion show music, and their designs.


A few trendy looks + their description

Look 1 I like their plaid jacket with the pink dress underneath. It is one particular poetic look that is really beautiful with the plaid coat and the dress underneath; the colors combined are beautiful together. The plaid fabric was made into a cream, dark brown, and a light khaki-brown color.

Look 2 A nice look was their yellow/brown-colored acid wash dress paired with a long dangling necklace. This is a fun and strong look.

Look 3 In the photo above is one of my favorite looks. I like this knitwear design and skirt paired with tall boots. It is a very beautiful and inspiring look. Johnson's design has elements of modernity, futurism, and classic styles.

About their show/film/presentation

Their FW '21 collection and film are really beautiful. The models were filmed walking in a very large, empty industrial building. The floor was slightly wet in some parts, and the music had water-drop sounds. The music was light, with
