The Top 10 ‘Standout’ Shows New York Fashion Week Spring 2023

One of the greatest showcases of the beloved “melting-pot” character of American culture, New York Fashion Week offers an exciting intersection of diverse creative energies. This is especially true of our favorite Standout shows of this season, which offered a spectacular cross-section of the sartorial expression the cosmopolitan city has to offer.

Ukrainian label Bevza delivered a collection that guided its signature blend of elegant minimalism, subtle playfulness, and folk tradition forward.

Cult favorites that have recently enjoyed a crossover to the mainstream, Area introduced a spiky punk edge to their penchant for sculptural construction and elaborate embellishment.

LaQuan Smith balanced sexy, fluid simplicity in silhouette with a rich exploration of shine and translucency in material, and most of all an explosively joyous use of color.

Taking home our top spot, Who Decides War creative director duo Everard Best and Tela D’Amore channeled their Caribbean roots to craft a tropical-tinged and richly textural collection that was layered with intricate visible mending techniques and architectural references.
