NYFW Zimmermann Spring 2017
I recently went to New York Fashion Week and attended the Zimmermann fashion show. Designer sisters Nicky and Zoe Zimmermann paid homage to their clubbing days for the Spring 2017 Ready-To-Wear collection. The Australian brand celebrated the young, creative teen, and Nicky took inspiration from a nightclub in Sydney she frequented in the 80’s. She turned the mood, defiant, disparate and decadent, morphing it into a collection of billowing romance and sultry detailing.

Heavy on lace, tulle, and embroidery along with a harmonious palette of cream, lilac, steel blue, and dusty peach, the collection had an unmistakable Eighties twist.
Volume and frills are dramatic; waterfall layers in floral prints are toughened by frayed edges and vintage trims.
There was no set silhouette, the pieces were keen to emphasize the idea of customization and craft like this lattice detail skirt.
