Five Things We’re Ready To See For New York Fashion Week

From Black designers to fresh new faces

Everyone prepare to bring out your best look, get selfie-ready, and slay for 2023 New York Fashion Week!

NYFW is back, and we’re ready to see all the looks from our favorite brands, influencers and designers. February 10, 2023, marks the official start of fashion’s biggest week with major brands making significant returns, including Altuzarra, Anna Sui, Coach, Brandon Maxwell, Carolina Herrera and more.

As we gear up for what this week has in store, check out some of our favorite things we’re looking forward to seeing in New York Fashion Week.

Black Designers Galore

As Gen-Z’ers get older and begin to enter the fashion space at a larger capacity, it’s essential to continue to implement more inclusivity in the industry. For this fashion week, it’s encouraging to see more Black designers take up space and show off their talents.

Runway Debuts

Fashion Week’s enjoyment is largely in part of runway debuts that we see from new designers to those making their grand returns. One designer we’re looking forward to their runway debut is Heron Preston. According to WWD, Preston will showcase his fall 2023 collection on the catwalk during NYFW for the first time.

New Faces

Finding the new It girls during NYFW is one of the most memorable parts of the event because we can point out who will make an impact in fashion. One model we’re anticipating is Fanta Bereteh as she takes the runway by storm.

“As the beauty standard continues to change, I feel no pressure to conform. I feel there will always be a new standard, but I choose to remain true to myself,” Bereteh told ESSENCE.

Celebrity Pop Outs

Who doesn’t love seeing their favorite celebrities during NYFW flaunting the most significant pieces for winter 2023 to add to our vision boards? Seeing some of our favorite designers and celebrities collaborate to create groundbreaking moments is what we look forward to on our timelines.

Street Fashion

Streetwear has become a leading event because we see organic looks from everyday people. The ensembles we’ve seen on the streets have become an influential trend we all want to emulate.
