After spending most of last week in the big city, I learned a lot, saw a lot, and photographed a lot. I wasn’t your stereotypical tourist to New York, snapping pictures of every skyscraper in sight, rather I was snapping shots of all the fashion trends that caught my attention.
Market week(s) is fashion madness in New York. Pretty much every vendor you can imagine sets up appointments for their vendors and shows product that they want to sell. The vendor then shops the product and brings in what they think their customer would want the most. I tended to have an eye out for what I might like the most, and in some cases, what I wear, as opposed to my customer, may not be the same.
During this market week, there were several trade shows taking place. At these trade shows, there were hundreds of vendors. Each vendor had a small space to show off their best product and attempt to sell to the buyers. Once again, I saw what might as well have been a limitless amount of product that was eye popping.
Brands that particularly stood out to me were, J Brand, Citizens of Humanity, Ted Baker, Victorinox, Lacoste, Hugo Boss, Agave, WRK, Baldwin, and especially Polo/Ralph Lauren. The Ralph Lauren showroom was simply out of this world. It was the most world class, top notch showroom you could imagine. From the building location, to the space they owned, to the way it was all set up, to the product they showed, it was magnificent. Here are some shots of what the Ralph Lauren space had to offer:
