NYFW Runway Spring / Summer 2022

The Nolcha Shows New York Fashion Week debuts at new location at 608 Fifth Avenue

New York, New York – August 31, 2021 Nolcha Shows NYFW, the award-winning fashion event held during New York Fashion Week for independent fashion brands, collaborates with the Fifth Avenue Association to debut this season of NYFW on Fifth. The highrise turned runway (between East 48th and 49th Street and across from Saks Fifth Avenue) is of prime elegance and sophistication.

 

This season will feature the “Ones to Watch”, showcasing independent fashion brands that epitomize elegance, freedom, and individuality. They are a reflection of the contemporary world: re-imagining fashion for the modern wearer.

 

Now in its 14th year, The Nolcha Shows is a known platform for discovery: a vessel for highlighting current and emerging global design talent during New York Fashion Week.

 

Among the audience of the fashion industry consisting of press, buyers and influencers, will also be a deserving group of people: military spouses receiving a VIP experience. In collaboration with the brand InstaSleep mint melts, Nolcha will honor the sacrifices that military spouses have made for this country. The VIP experience will start with hair and make-up, followed by a glam session by AOFM, and will conclude with front row seats, backstage access, and catered dining by Chef Tova.

Nolcha Shows NYFW Presents the Following Fashion Brands:

KavenLiu DIMOR

DIMOR designs seek to evoke a sense of belonging and freedom for women, while weaving structure and architecture into its feminine elements. This collection in particular places an emphasis on the female form and waistline, ensuring a flattering silhouette complemented by comfortable materials such as silk, hemp, and cotton. The juxtaposition between KavenLiu DIMOR’s femininity and structured, angular elements make for a compelling yet wearable collection.

Koreano

KOREANO is reimagining the modern woman’s wardrobe by creating one outfit for any occasion. The brand expresses a commitment to utter self-expression and independence through a curated uniqueness of femininity and strength.

Klova

Masters of minimalism reside at Klova; the destination for illustrating the beauty and charm of women in Chinese culture. Woven together with lightness and naturalism, this collection seeks to encourage comfort and peace. The uniqueness at Klova is in the details. The carefully created collection came about through airy, light color and neutrals, and an “elegant voluptuousness” that can seldom be duplicated.

the 5th Season

The 5th Season unconventionally found inspiration for their collection from that of a bird, an animal that represents much of what the brand seeks to convey; “freedom, elegance, and rebirth”. The homage to the bird will be seen through the colors, textures, and silhouettes of the designs at The 5th Season.

Ashton Jewlery

Colorado-based Ashton Burridge carefully and artfully crafts her jewelry designs, inspired by her time spent in Italy. The pieces draw inspiration from art history, with elements of ancient themes and are rich in detail. Ashton Jewelry uses antique techniques like etching to illustrate an authentic expression of creativity. The process is tedious, and the jewelry is made up of repurposed gold and silver and ethically sourced precious gems. Not a gram of material goes un-repurposed at Ashton Jewelry, making for a beautifully ethical brand.

Calista

Calista is a Mexican contemporary jewelry brand by sisters Laura and Regina Hernandez. Their collection is inspired by Egyptian mythology, and titled Bennu, after a mythological bird with a likeness to the mythological phoenix. Each  creation at Calista is expertly created in 22K gold plated brass, lapis lazuli, and red coral. This collection will emphasize the idea that “after dark, there will be light with the rising sun.”

Official Sponsors include: AOFM, Waterdrop, InstaSleep Mint Melts, BARCO and Dermalogica.

Dimor’s Runway to Present a Culture, Not an Appearance

Dimor’s Runway to Present a Culture, Not an Appearance

KavenLiu Dimor is set to create a new perspective during NYFW by pursuing the sense of presentation behind the clothes as its founders believe that customer’s requirements for clothes are no longer limited  to the appearance. The brand began working  on the cutting of clothes and ensuring the apparel has more sense of space and  presentation through the original three dimensional cutting method and appropriate  silhouette adjustment, which can hide the  deficiencies of our body, thus bringing  customers a better dressing experience.

The brand portrays the idea of moving  through different social settings, each day of  your life. KavenLiu Dimor aims for those who wear the brand to naturally appear in  each social setting full of energy and feeling the best version of oneself. This season’s collection features the most inseparable  elements of “food, clothing, housing and  transportation” in life and how when  combined creates an atmosphere of “being  oneself” and building an exclusive personal  space. This atmosphere is achieved by  designing the overall packaging and  integrating the design elements throughout  the collection. It aims to create a  comprehensive design concept of beauty,  clothing, accessories and styling, so that  women can get a better design experience.

KavenLiu Dimor is the apparel brand that  strives to curate the unique charm of Chinese  clothing with an original design, creating a  life experience that includes a sense of  belonging and freedom for women.




Elf Sack’s Runway to Represent a Combination of Cultures

Elf Sack’s Runway to Represent a Combination of Cultures

Elf Sack has been inspired by the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac in eastern culture and will feature florals, landmarks and crops in Chinese cities; together with the royal court patterns of western religious culture. The western religious culture will be represented in a famous mythological oil painting scene known as the rose and angel in the imperial court totem. The brand portrays both the eastern and western religious cultures through the integration of the structural details of Chinese costume and gothic costume giving customers a highly customized experience when wearing the collection and meeting the needs of different wearing scenes. The fabric chosen includes vintage jacquard fabrics, glossy silk, sweet lace and chiffon, and neutral jeans focusing on texture, comfort, and delicacy.

Founded in 2006, Elf Sack is known for being an original pioneer brand of storytelling, with an enthusiastic, confident, and ambitious team. The brand pursues the freedom, admires the heroism, and endows the products with soul in imaginative and curious design methods. They believe that clothing is entertainment, culture, and attitude.

This season’s collection has been curated with love and professionalism as the creators of Elf Sack have transformed the brand’s culture from each theme turning inspiration into a new clothing series. Whether a fairy tale or historical figure, the combination of story and clothing fabrics creates the clever blended spirit of the Elf Sack aesthetics.
