September 10th marked day four of NYFW. The 70’s inspired Son Jung Wan Spring/ Summer show was held at the Skylight at Moynihan Station. Son Jung Wan was inspired by the moments of the 70’s. Designer Son Jung Wan said that it is very nostalgic reflecting upon her time in the 70’s. I felt as if I was in the 70’s at a disco because the cheerful music to the colorful garments mood of the runway. The Sportswear collection captured the vibrant energy of the 70’s. Out of all the 42 looks, I could see women and men wearing them while out dancing or just having a night out.
The fabric and the colors were well chosen. The bright reds, silver, emerald green, pink, white made the playfulness of the garments come to life. It was all in the details for Son Jung Wan. The texture of the fabrics was dynamic, she used a variety of prints and tweeds, vinyl, and sequins. As as a designer myself I notice the intricate garment details, she has a lot of interesting seams and funky trims. She added zippers in places you would not expect it to be placed. The trims used on the sleeves and hems were this crossing of ribbons stitched together. She used that trim on the side of dresses as well. I had never seen that before it was really sexy and playful to see a sneak of skin showing. Great job Son Jung Wan!
