A major component of Fashion Week is the spectacle that takes place outside of shows and presentations. Sure, the catwalks are full of exciting trends, but it’s on the streets that you’ll find more practical and stylish ways to elevate your everyday look. There, a seasoned mix of celebrities, industry insiders, and content creators usually grab photographers’ attention with their unique looks. It’s a visual phenomenon that happens every season, and Spring 2023 was no different.
This year, Fashion Week officially kicked off in New York on September 9, but designers like Christian Siriano and Latoia Fitzgerald started the party days early, hosting parades for a star-studded guest list that included Janet Jackson and Cassie, respectively. Harlem’s Fashion Row also joined in the pre-festivities, hosting its 15th anniversary fashion show and style awards on September 7, with Issa Rae and Janet Jackson as special guests.
Street style guests in New York have embraced a range of saturated colors this season, likely inspired by the bright monochrome ensembles that populated the runways of Christian Siriano, Michael Kors and Sergio Hudson in Fall 2022. bold and vibrant print combinations were also spotted throughout, nodding to a collective desire for summer to stay. Accessories were more over the top than ever – from wacky oversized sunglasses to extravagant feather headpieces. It was truly a feast for the eyes.
