What is New York Fashion Week?

An incredible week in NYC dedicated to talented designers and their upcoming collections. NYFW happens twice a year, once in February and another in September. Live streams, tutorials, panels, behind-the-scenes experiences, and fashion films take place. In short – everything fashion related you could ever want. 

1943 was the special year Fashion Week came to be. It was a happy accident that it ended up in New York, initially they called it “Press Week”. At that time, all the big fashion was happening in Paris where American press travelled to get the scoop. Because WWII was in full swing, it was decided that New York was a good place for Fashion Week to be and it stuck. 

 

New York Fashion Week 2022 Trends

Fashionista.com has the latest on 11 breakout Fall 2022 trends you’ll love for Fashion Week. The best part about dressing trendy is styling your hat to match.  

  • Stress the waistline. No matter your body type, curvy or not, it’s all about the waist this year. Go with a subtle hat style like the popular Zephyr Rancher. This felt classic is still a statement piece but can still allow your waist to be the center of attention. 
  • Designers are loving rich browns this season. Since we’re obsessed with neutral colors, here at Gigi Pip we have countless styles in shades and tints of brown.
  • Corsets are back and there’s no limit to what you can wear with them. Dresses, jeans, full skirts, and your favorite hat. We think a beret with metal detailing would be just the accessory to match.

Anything goes when it comes to prints and textures for Fall 2022. Tweed, party sequins, and powerful pink are a must for any occasion you find yourself. Whatever allows you to walk around with confidence is a go! You’ll be looking and feeling amazing when you go to NY Fashion Week.
