It might be a good thing that legacy brands and certain chairmen are sitting out of NYFW, as the opportunity to discover talent presented itself more than ever this season. Haitian-American designer Victor Glemaud can hardly be considered “new” (he founded his collection in 2006) but a 2017 finalist placement in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund unveiled him to the fashion masses and he’s continued to build his dynasty on that momentum, slow and steady. This season Glemaud saw fit to kick-off the fashion week calendar with his first fashion show and last night’s production at the Soho Grand saw the designer going back to house color codes for his signature knitwear, with inspiration from his fallen heroes. Titled “Unlimited Capacity for Love” and dedicated “for Ed” (the late KCD chairman, Filipowski), Diahann Carroll-esque turbans made in collaboration with Saga Furs met saturated color-blocking with playful cutouts that brought an uptown feel yet, were matched with the very downtown appeal of Nike Tailwinds. Where Glemaud really hit his stride was in the elevated eveningwear that came after look 21, a get-up that had all the right elements for the Instagram set – an asymmetrical, sleeveless crop-top with high-waisted trousers in a black and white “slash” pattern. Models like Oslo Grace, Amira Pinheiro, Diya Prabhakar, and Parker Kit Hill were part of an inclusive casting that celebrated race, gender, and body positivity with beauty looks created by Recine, Michelle Clark, and Leanne Woodley.
