Sunday September 9th it was showtime again at the iconic Roosevelt Hotel, located at 45 East 45th Street, in the heart of midtown Manhattan near landmarks such as The Empire State Building, 5th Avenue and Broadway. Multiple up-and-coming, independent and established designers showcased their Spring 2019 collections for the final day of The Society Fashion Week. The full event took place from September 6th to 9th, and it coincided with the broader New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2019. 

This venue with great ‘grandeur’ and beautiful interiors makes you feel like being right on the set of a classic ‘jazz age’ movie. In the packed Grand Ballroom (with a 27 foot high ceiling, ornaments and candles) the flocking audience eagerly awaited the many designers showcasing their collections. The photographers in the press pit were more than ready to capture it all. Quite a scenery at this boutique spot! Bravo to all designers and models. Herewith highlighting some of them.

Elisabeth Cordelia presented her lovely classic children’s wear. Soft tone colors and lots of lace fabrics. Eye catcher was the blue & silver gown. Every girl would feel a true princess wearing it! Yikstyles presented a collection that can be described as feminine urban chic. One of the highlights was the full length summer dress with black & white flower print. Look at the batwing sleeves, slay it!

Camellia Couture presented a collection with lots of soft tone colors, bows and floral prints. Very beautiful was the pink gown in satin with laces and open back. Destiny Howard showcased contemporary stylish designs. Feeling ‘summer vibes’ with the classy yet simple open shoulder white tunic dress. A collection with the message to embrace yourself! De Lauriane collection; colorful and wearable children’s clothing. Lots of nice and quirky outfits like the black & blue dress. Mixed and matched fabrics and prints; own your style!

Original Crackage presented a cool collection with lines, stripes, contrasting colors and floral prints. Urban trendsetting clothing. George+Ginger presented her everyday-wear collection. Flattering classy designs, smooth fabrics and layered (lace) pieces. The yellow floral dress was one of the many pretty outfits.

On September 6th established designers Noor Rashid Al Khalifa & Haya Mohamed Al Khalifa presented their collection ‘Noon By Noor’  Spring Summer collection 2019 during New York Fashion Week Women’s.  The runway show took place at Spring Studios, located in Manhattan. The light and serene d├ęcor, a palm leaf shadow at the wall in the back was all what was needed to showcase this feminine, natural, ready to wear collection. Less is more! 

Inspired by the beauty of Bahrain, the home country of the designers, models graciously walked the runway wearing dresses, skirts, tunics  and trousers mostly in soft tone colors as pink, sand and blue alternated with floral, black and white designs. Fabrics as linen, cotton and silk were used to create this fashionable "something for every day" collection.  The blue & white stripes outfits, the sand color skirts and trousers, the white dresses  are all examples of the elegance and simplicity this collection represents.

Basic and stylish ‘must haves’ for classic & confident women.  The last look, a beautiful black strapless organza gown was the absolute eye-catcher of this collection. Surprising, almost theatrical. Craftsmanship, bravo to this designers duo!
