New York Fashion Week has finally come to an end, and the six-day string of events for Fall 2022 has definitely made quite the impression, kick-starting fashion month as a whole. Taking on both IRL shows and digital showcases, this season offered everything we needed and more, from interesting runway shows and presentations to fun events and FOMO-inducing after-parties.
As expected from NYFW, we got to see our favorite celebrities take on both the front row seats and surprise catwalk cameos, too, along with a slew of street style and must-watch emerging designers. We also got to see the metaverse inevitably take on fashion week as well, among many other moments that are definitely one for the books.
If you still need to catch up on everything that went down at New York Fashion Week, you’re in luck. We’ve compiled all of the best and buzziest happenings that you need to know about, from the Euphoria stars dominating fashion week to Telfar’s new Round Circle debut and more. Check out our list of top moments from New York Fashion Week Fall 2022, below.
Celebrities Made Surprise Runway Cameos
Though expected from NYFW, it’s always surprising to see which celebrities take on the catwalk every season and this time around was no exception. For Fall 2022, Tia Adeola kicked off the season with its Renaissance-inspired collection with a cameo from rapper Flo Milli, who wore a yellow knitted tank and leggings set adorned with ruffles on the runway.
Soon after on Feb. 14, LaQuan Smith unveiled its Fall 2022 collection with Julia Fox of Uncut Gems making her runway debut just hours after her breakup with Kanye “Ye” West. Fox opened the show wearing a black long-sleeve maxi dress adorned with cutout details at the front. She was then styled in chunky silver bracelets and statement earrings, complete with a pair of metallic boots.
Closing out NYFW was The Blonds, showcasing its Fall 2022 collection full of leather pieces, corsets, latex, and tulle galore. The brand featured a special performance from Savage X Fenty collaborator and Nike ambassador Parris Goebel. The star model and choreographer donned a one-of-a-kind couture garment during her fiery dance sequence. Inspired by Motorola’s Razr’s sleek and compact design, Goebel was seen in a black corset with latex pants and platform boots. — India Roby
Euphoria Stars Were Everywhere
Our current favorite show just made an IRL spinoff, as many of the cast members from HBO Max’s Euphoria completely took over NYFW. On Feb. 11, Maude Apatow hosted a conversation for “NYFW: The Talks” alongside Los Angeles-based brand Rodarte, chatting with the Mulleavy sisters on topics like sustainability, resale economy, and how the designers got their start in the industry.
Following on Feb. 14, all eyes were on Euphoria heartthrob Angus Cloud, known as Fezco on the show, as he made his rounds throughout fashion week. Cloud attended a few shows over the past week but sat front and center for Coach’s Fall 2022 runway show next to Megan Thee Stallion, Rina Sawayama, and Rickey Thompson. (He was also munching on a bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos in a white shirt, might we add. An icon indeed.)
After a long hiatus from the runway, Hunter Schafer finally made an appearance for Gogo Graham’s Fall 2022 showcase held in Queens. Schafer, who was also spotted checking out the ShayneOliver debut during NYFW, wore a criss-cross black-and-white corseted dress, which was then styled with a pair of yellow sweatpants and a white puffer coat. She also carried a yellow teddy bear in her hand and finished her look off in a black choker and platform flip-flops. — IR
Micro-Mini Skirts Will Still Be Trending In The Fall
In case you didn’t know, we’re officially swapping out our loungewear for revenge clothing and, more specifically, we’re looking at the early aughts as style inspiration. Throughout the Fall 2022 shows at NYFW, we’ve witnessed the micro-mini skirt trend completely take over the runways with just about every designer boasting at least one teeny-tiny mini skirt in their collections. For example, Christian Cowan featured a tweed set while Kim Shui had both fuzzy and tiny versions of the 2000s-era style. Dion Lee also incorporated the noughties piece into its Fall 2022 collection, along with brands Dauphinette, LaQuan Smith, and more. — IR
ShayneOliver Made Its NYFW Debut
Hood by Air founder and creative director Shayne Oliver’s Anonymous Collective took over New York City venue The Shed for a special three-day event of music, fashion, and performances, titled Headless: The Demonstration. On the second night, Feb. 11, Oliver debuted his namesake luxury brand, ShayneOliver, to a packed audience, with an experimental presentation that featured artwork, plenty of strobe lights and fog, and musical performances by Eartheater and TotalFreedom alongside his new designs. The collection was filled with going- out glamour fit for the apocalypse, like bedazzled apparel, sculptural footwear, sweeping black evening gowns, and micro-mini bottoms. — Maria Bobila
Eckhaus Latta Celebrated Its 10-Year Anniversary
Downtown darlings Eckhaus Latta hit a major milestone at NYFW, as the design duo celebrated their 10-year anniversary with a Fall 2022 runway show at the abandoned old location of Essex Market and a commemorative after-party at The Standard in the East Village. The latest (and 21st) collection was a culmination of what designers Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta do best — cool statement knitwear, denim, and dresses — with an extra dose of craftsmanship, like silver dress made entirely of chainmail and tops pieced together like a puzzle with lace. With a full decade under their belts, it seemed almost fitting that NYFW Fall 2022 was stacked with some of the best emerging designers to watch, as Eckhaus Latta’s show further proved that the brand is the indie brand blueprint. — MB
