From a new crop of emerging talent to Khaite’s first store opening and Christian Siriano’s worldly floral runway show, these are the stand-out moments that defined New York Fashion Week…
New Name To Know – Kate Barton
Emerging designer Kate Barton made her catwalk debut in New York this season with a stand out collection steeped in innovate design and unconventinal materials. Her unique approach to evening wear is what makes her a one to watch; not only does she develop her own engineered fabrics and colours, Barton also focuses on technology and sustainable solutions.

Catherine Holstein Opens Her First Khaite Store In New York
Khaite founder and 2022 CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year award winner Catherine Holstein opened her first store at 165 Mercer street after a year in the making. Taking space on the ground and subterranean floors of the historic cast-iron building in Soho, the 4,000-square-foot space is as compelling in its design as much as Holstein’s ready-to-wear collections. Think sleek industrial materials, thought-provoking lighting and sound moments and custom-designed chairs by Japanese artist Shiro Kuramata.
IT Girl Chloë Sevigny Walks For Proenza Schouler
It doesn’t get more cooler than this! Style icon Chloë Sevigny opened the show for Proenza Schouler with designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez describing it as “possibly our most personal collection’. Sevigny also voiced the soundtrack written by novelist Ottessa Moshfegh which was a series of fictional entries that voiced the thoughts of the modern woman.
Christian Siriano Is In Full Bloom
Christian Siriano called his show a darker version of Audrey Hepburn’s Rose Garden. The venue was filled with white, pink and red roses which also translated in to his AW23 collection. Graphic rose prints and rosettes adorned dresses, headwear and coats in his most enchanting collection yet.
Clean Skin Is In
Heavy contouring and ‘baking’ seems to be a thing of the past – clean, natural skin is officially in again. Brandon Maxwell, Carolina Herrera and Tory Burch steered away from the foundations and instead focused on fresh faces and soft pops of eye colours.
