NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
This year’s NYFW started on Wednesday, September 8 and ended on Sunday, September 12. NYFW returned to an in-person event after a virtual affair last year due to COVID-19.
Several designers have shown their incredible work to NYFW, including rising designer LaQuan Smith and Ulla Johnson, who was the first designer to secure the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for her show.
Another highlight of this exciting fashion event was the return of model Gigi Hadid to the runway for American designer Brandon Maxwell.
The 100-man choir of Kerby Jean-Raymond fashion week
Although fashion is the most important aspect of NYFW, what is a fashion show without music? Amazing music that is!
Interestingly enough, there is music that came out years ago that still thrills fashion lovers along the catwalk.
Kerby Jean-Raymond is a designer who always does everything in his power during his fashion shows. The American designer is the founder of Pyer Moss and rather likes to sing choirs during his fashion shows.
Once the designer had a 100-man choir at one of his shows How will I see you through my tears musical Gospel music in Colone which was first staged in 1983.
Watch their NYFW 2018/2019 show where the choice was all in white, with their voices bringing all of the clothing on display to life.
