Recap: Nolcha’s Fall/Winter 2017 “Ones To Watch Show”

Every season, I attend shows during New York Fashion week, and as much as I look forward to seeing the work of top designers, it’s actually more exciting to see the work of rising starts. On Monday afternoon, Nolcha Shows held its “Ones To Watch” presentation, which spotlights emerging brands. I eagerly took my seat to await the amazing show I knew I would be in store for from designers Mariana Valentina, Son Collection, Just In Case, Chèlbè and Stevenson University. Everything showcased was spectacular, so it was hard to choose just a few designs to feature. Here are my top picks:

Mariana Valentina’s line of Arabian Architecture-inspired statement dresses featured sexy peek-a-boo cutouts that managed to look chic and not raunchy.

Son Collection, a Vietnamese womenswear line, used bright pops of color throughout the collection, but two tan-hued dresses stole the show as they glittered down the runway.

Just In Case, a men’s and women’s streetwear from Taiwan, created a collection that will ensure you never go cold this winter with chunky wool knits and fluffy furs.

Chèlbè, who makes clothing especially for tall women 5ft11+, showcased a line of geometric cuts that freely flowed as the models walked down the runway.
