THERE IS A BEGINNING AND AN END TO EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING COMES TO AN END. UNFORTUNATELY, THAT INCLUDES NOLCHA SHOWS AT NYFW. THAT BEING SAID, DI YUSUPOFF CLOSED THE NOLCHA SHOWS. IT WAS A SOLO SHOW THAT LEFT ALL FASHION LOVERS TALKING, AND HERE IS WHY.
DI YUSUPOFF: LET’S NOT FORGET TO MENTION THE CELEBRITIES THAT CAME OUT TO SUPPORT designers like Sabina Yusupova, the designer behind Di Yusupoff. Actress Jessica Pimentel (“Orange is the New Black”) was on hand. Also actress/model and former Miss USA Olivia Culpo (pictured; photo by Jeffrey Holmes) was also there, wearing an original Di Yusupoff design. But what stole the show was the collection…and that spoke for itself. This is one of many labels to watch for. Di Yusupoff’s runway had a little of everything, starting with dresses very elegant and well fitted to show off any woman’s curves, but classy and tasteful at the same time. Elegant and classy are the key words to describe Di Yusupoff’s 2016 Fall/Winter collection. This collection was the best way to end the shows. Jackets seem to be another hit on the runway for this collection as well. In my perspective individual pieces like the jackets went well with almost everything and were the key element in how many runway looks were styled. Many DiYusupoff jackets had the ability to accentuate a dress. Equally important, accessories can be critical to any outfit; that is exactly what the jackets were in this collection. Models walked with jackets paired either with pants or with a well-fitted dress. All the pieces seemed to mesh with one another perfectly. Most importantly, all individual pieces for this collection got equal attention. I did not know what I liked more, the dress or the jacket…or the pants or the jacket. Every individual piece I wanted and every dress I wanted to wear. If this was Di Yusupoff’s goal, it was met with flying colors. Nolcha Shows at New York Fashion Week went out with elegance. Everything in this collection was classy. Take a look for yourself. [Photos in this set: Brian Ach/Getty Images for Nolcha Shows; Asa Williams; Jeffrey Holmes.]
