On September 7th, the Spring/Summer 2017 collection of Michelle Helene debuted at New York Fashion Week. Stark white walls and brightly colored platforms were the perfect backdrop for the models wearing the funky, chic new collection.
As a brand that focuses on the satisfaction and accessibility to people of all kinds it is no surprise that this collection and the models wearing it were incredibly diverse. The collection was full of bright colors and fun silhouettes and it is easy to picture any one of the models walking around the streets of NYC in these clothes.
Between afros and head wraps, denim and maxi dresses this collection calls back to 70s style fashion and the easy, flirty style of the era. Designer Michelle Helene explains, “My inspiration for the Spring/Summer 2017 collection is rooted in both the clothing and political messaging from the 1970s. This is my interpretation on anti-conformist casual chic fashion for the modern day woman.”
As my first NYFW event this show really got me excited for the rest of the week and just makes me want to look at more of Michelle Helene’s amazing work.
