Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection was shown September 12, 2015 in NYFW.
For his 10th anniversary collection Alexander Wang brought out the slouchy, cool, off-duty athleisure that made him a rock star name. Wang brought back the signature looks that made him a name in the first place. Wang’s spell at Balenciaga ends in October, after less than three years as creative director. His last collection , spring/summer 2016, created for Balenciaga will be shown on October 2, in Paris Fashion Week.
Trading in last season’s gothic inspired look, the new season featured more everyday staples including denim separates, military-inspired jackets and hoodies with a graphic edge. Bold stripes, chain link details, fringe and mesh made these wardrobe staples far from minimal. Wang also experimented with evening wear inspired looks in his own way with long, flowing dresses given a street style makeover when paired with oversized coats or baseball caps.
At the end of the show and before the party, Wang showed an edgy video looking back on his career, broadcast from the backing wall. Then it was all eyes on the semi-clad, athletic pole dancers strutting their stuff.
And if we take a look at the front row we can see Lady Gaga,Mary J Blige, Steven Klein, Nicki Minaj and Kanye West.

The Givenchy show gracefully paid its respects to September 11.The long-anticipated show began on Pier 26 just as the sun was setting, and the Memorial of Light commemorating the Twin Towers lit up in the Background.
Let us speak about this grandiose collection, 89 Looks sent Tisci on runway! And all his creations are glamorous, luxurios and all outfits are beautiful, they are perfect. Riccardo Tisci did it again, the best show till now, there is no doubt about it!!!!
If it’s still ready-to-wear or a haute Couture yet? I can’t answer, for me some pieces are definitely haute Couture. The Highlight,the most attendet Show in NYFW.
This year also marks 10 years of Tisci at Givenchy and there was something of the retrospective in the first part of the show. It featured slinky, beautifully cut silk and lace slips worn with slouchy black trousers, and dressing gown-style coats in a colour palette of black and white, sometimes with bandage-style tops.
The different fashion Looks,ready-to-wear and haute couture, male and female, strength and fragility, the tailor’s discipline and the delicateness of lingerie all come together in a natural way in a collection which has the feel of a marriage of opposites. It involved top models with strong personalities chosen by Riccardo Tisci, such as Joan Smalls and Mariacarla Boscono, who showcased these pieces and underlined the human and sensual side of his style for Givenchy.
