We are always on the lookout for innovative, exciting and directional modest fashion and New York Fashion Week has proved the ongoing adaptation and development for options for a more cautious and modest wardrobe is very much on the rise.
With wide long skirts complemented with waisted belts and long boots, Longchamp brought us a dose of bohemian spirit, while we saw a more minimalist aesthetic in neutral tones at Self-Portrait and Prada. Tom Ford opted for an altogether more youthful and joyful collection dotted with leopard prints and a kaleidoscopic color palette as Tory Burch took inspiration from the 19th century English rural countryside. At Jacquemus there were full-sleeved options under a short sleeve cut with a minimal, effortless, pared-down aesthetic that will relate to buyers beyond the glamour of the catwalk, while Proenza Schouler offered an oversized silhouette in a monochrome palette, offset with flashes of tomato red and sumptuous fabric selections.
The most important message of now is that fashion is inclusive to all and that we have the option to make a personal choice on the way we dress. It is clear the industry is listening and striving to offer modest styles that adapt to the silhouette, maintaining an aura of mystery and empowerment. Well may it continue.
