NEW York Fashion Week is back with a bang – and this year’s style is more eye-popping than ever. Take a look at Discount Universe’s collection from Day 1.
Yesterday, dozens of designers paraded their Autumn/Winter collections on the NYFW catwalk.
With a flurry of sequins, slogan tops and swimwear hitting the runway, it was difficult for brands to make their clothing stand-out.
But this didn’t seem to be a problem for Discount Universe, who dropped jaws with a vibrant collection.
You’d have to be brave to wear the garments as many of them played into the underwear is outerwear trend.
So would you dare to don any of these looks in public?
The Australian brand, which was founded by designers Nadia Napreychikov and Cami James, is known for its fashion forward clothing.
Its AW18 range certainly didn’t disappoint as it made its way down the catwalk.
One of the stand-out items was a little black dress.
Turning the traditional LBD on its head, it incorporated rainbow detailing, ruffles and sparkly rhinestones.
Sheer fabric made up the skirt of the frock, flaunting the model’s curves as she sashayed down the runway.
She sported a fierce expression on her face as she showed off the garment’s slogan, “not for reproduction”.
Accessories were kept to a minimum, but the catwalk star was styled with red lipstick and bold winged liner.
This wasn’t the only quirky evening wear on display.
A Cinderella-like ballgown was given a sexy makeover by Discount Universe.
With puffy shoulders and a full skirt, the sparkly frock looked very Disney from the front.
The back of the garment provided a stark contrast, with red lace-up details giving the look an edgy vibe.
Like other items in the collection, this get-up played into the underwear is outerwear trend.
The designer also showed off sharp suits on the catwalk.
One of the two-pieces, which appeared to be inspired by traditional tattoos, was a real head-turner.
Lions, roses and pin-up girls were among the illustrations to adorn the outfit.
To tie the look into the rest of the collection, the brand styled the model with a sparkly thong.
New York Fashion Week is one of the Big Four fashion events in the world – along with London, Paris and Milan.
It takes place twice a year and is an event full of shows which allow fashion designers to showcase their latest collections.
The main aim of the shows is to showcase the collections to influential buyers and writers.
They attend the shows to see potential designs and collections that could sell well in retail.
