Vivienne Hu SS15, NYFW: 9/9/14

My first show that I attended while at NYFW was Vivienne Hu SS15. I'll be chronicling a recap of Day 2 of NYFW in another post, but let me tell you, getting up on time to make it to this show was a struggle. We rode a serious strugglebus Uber all the way to Chelsea Piers.

Vivienne Hu's SS15 runway show was slated for 9:30am on September 9th at Pier 59 Studios. A slight debacle with address issues made Laura, Robby and me run quite late. We were worried we wouldn't make it in time, but as it turns out, the crowd was thin, and the show didn't start until after 10am. As the lights dimmed, my excitement skyrocketed. I was really at NYFW! It was actually happening! The lights lifted again, the music began, and out walked Rain, who you have probably become acquainted with from my blog post last night about her! All photographs by me unless otherwise specified.



Vivienne Hu is a designer that has been showcasing her works since just 2012, after originally holding a career in business. She obtained a fashion degree from Parsons The New School for Design, and has experience working for Oscar de la Renta and Yigal Azrouel. She has since dressed celebrities, and had her designs featured in publications such as Harper's Bazaar and Elegant

Although I do have to say that I wasn't 100% wowed by the designs - meaning that I have seen similar clothing in my everyday life already - I did fall for the checkerboard pattern. I wasn't totally sold on the white top combined with the black and white pants, but I would absolutely wear the pants alone. I did like the high-low dress that the model with short red hair was wearing. I felt that it would translate very well into everyday wear for many ladies. The brown leather dress was gorgeous in person, but seemed familiar... Anyone recall the brown leather frock sported by miss Danielle Swift in the Novis collection shown at STLFW in April?

Okay, okay, they aren't true matches after all. But I was just making a point regarding my earlier statement about having seen similar styles already out and about. Not to say that I wouldn't rock a tan leather frock! I also really enjoyed the music at the Vivienne Hu runway show, and after a few quick email correspondences, I ended up on the phone with Jason, who crafted the music for the show. Because, my life couldn't get any cooler. Models, musicians, who's next?!
