New York Fashion Week Runway Looks to Social Media Trends


Younger designers like Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, founders of the brand “Eckhaus Latta,” take avant-garde fashion to the next level, with sheer and shiny unisex clothing. In different, but wearable styles including button-downs, vests and long dresses, the designers take on more subtle hues, but unconventional materials.

Maisie Schloss, a 27-year-old designer, utilizes the digital age in designing her futuristic line for this year’s runway. Having some ’70s psychedelic prints, alien looks and fun patterns and colors, all looks were virtual, leaning more into the future of fashion shows. Bringing back styles reminiscent to the 2000s and early 2010s, Schloss’s work went in the direction of the popular fashion dolls, Bratz. Mimicking the Y2K appearance with mini skirts, crop tops, fitted clothing and party dresses, the LA Designer kept the ball rolling with looks applicable to the trends currently, showcasing elevated pieces that are out of this world.

Implementing fashion focused within sustainability, Emma Gage, a new designer in the Fashion week lineup, experiments with textures, colors and knitwear. All looks meant to be gender-neutral, the New York-based designer created her brand called Melke during the pandemic and creates her pieces keeping in mind the environment and ethical practices. Using recycled materials like beetle wings and old fabrics, the young artist solidifies her brand and looks with a touch of flare in knitted pieces, matching sets and fun dresses with all types of silhouettes.
