We didn’t miss Rihanna’s Fenty fashion show, which showcased her lingerie line Savage X Fenty’s new collection.
Fenty was among the brands that showcased their latest collections on Wednesday, a list which includes Oscar de la Renta, Naeem Khan, Dan Liu, Tome and Gabriel Hearst.
This year’s New York Fashion Week (NYFW) will be remembered for its vast range of model and size inclusivity, a fashion movement that has been going on for years – we see models of every size, more people of color, full term pregnant models, Balmain’s CGI models and a laudable pact to replace real fur with faux fur and many other important things.
Fenty’s show was one of the most interesting shows this week, not just for its long list of celebrity supermodels on the runway (Joan Smalls, Adut Akech, Duckie Thot, Molly Constable, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Jazelle, Aweng Chuol), it’s increasingly bold and sexy lingerie looks, but also for including heavily pregnant, Janina Thompson and Simone Thompson (Slick Woods) on its runway.
Interestingly, Simone Thompson went into labour backstage, after her walk and now has welcomed a baby boy, Saphire, with her beau, Adonis Bosso.
An interesting week, don’t you think?
