It’s day 6 of NYFW and, so far, my favorite designer was Taoray Wang. Maybe it’s because I have a feminist blood running in my veins and I love to see designers doing garments for powerful, strong, business women with attitude. In my opinion, Taoray Wang nails it in every aspect of this woman’s life, with pieces that take them to work, but also take them through the weekend without losing their sophistication.
This season, Taoray Wang created very cinched waists on suits, that were very flattering and created an hourglass figure, going ‘against’ most designers’ suits this season, which were oversized and very 90’s like.
The sleeves also had an interesting mix of bishop and butterfly sleeves, with suit sleeves being often oversized.
The color palette was very definitely soberer than those I saw in other shows. Taoray sticked to black, white and navy, mostly, with a hint of nudes and a very soft blue that appeared on shinier silk fabrics.
I heard in an interview that most of her silk fabrics are sourced in Italian mills, and her lace is from French mills. The news is that now she is working with a new type of linen that is made in Shanghai and it’s 100% silk.
