Everything That Happened Day 6 of New York Fashion Week

On the last day of New York Fashion Week, we were basically running on coffee and fumes. Thankfully, beautiful clothing, live music, and french fries at Matthew Adams Dolan got us through.

Yalitza Aparicio was the star of this seasons front row, which took in a show infused with American prep, Princess Di blazers, and sweaters declaring NO HATE—a complicated command when mixed with the clothes many military accents. Then again, it was kind of perfect: “Make Clothes Not War” is, after all, a Fashion Week mantra for the ages.

As a prolific young designer with a lot of buzz, Matthew Adam Dolan is no slouch. His collection was literally slouchy, though, with oversize prep staples like monogrammed oxford shirts ballooning from tight denim minis and twill a-line skirts. Stylist Gabriella Karefa-Johnson looped one model under a circle of cable-knit sleeves, making a country club trend—the tied shoulder sweater—into a cool cocoon cape.

In the future, all our dresses will be 100 percent sustainable and biodegradable. In the present, this leaf dress is delightful, in a Honey I Shrunk the Kids kind of way.

Marc Jacobs, Jeremy Scott, Proenza Schouler, and even Oscar de la Renta have grabbed onto 80s pop references for their boldest fall looks. But before Jem and the Holograms made neon eyeliner and spiked pink hair matter to Millennials, Cyndi Lauper pioneered the “happy punk” trend in her groundbreaking 1983 music video Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.

As captured in a photo shoot of inspiring mothers (including Lala Anthony, Bozema St. John, and Cushnies own mom Angela), the clothes mix gauzy pastel softness with the tactile strength of knots, twists, and sharp seams. Most looks are either one-and-done dresses or matching monochrome suits—an easy way for busy women to grab their looks and go.

Back in the 90s, I wanted to dress like Felicity Merriman. Frankly, I still do. Thanks, Brock Collection, for making my American Girl dreams come true!
