NYFW Dorin Negrau S/S 2015 Runway show
Nia, Blog Management and Marketing Intern
Hey Guys, so I can’t even explain how excited I was to attend one of my first New York Fashion week runway show, and another exciting thing was that this was Dorin Negrau’s first Mercedes Benz NYFW runway show under the tent. So I was honored that Erika allowed me to attend, and I was also honored to be able to attend one of Dorin Negrau’s first NYFW show and which I’m sure won’t be his last. Now, I will say this I had no idea what to wear, well ok I LIED I had this outfit ready ever since I was told be on the lookout for another invite by Erika. I attended NYFW Sunday prior to me going in Thursday and let me say this the atmosphere made you feel as if you were a celebrity. There was photographers everywhere snapping pictures of the hottest street style during NYFW, and I’m proud to say I was asked a few times to stop for photos on both of my visits. But either way getting to see different people’s street style was so inspiring and refreshing.
But back to the fabulousssss, and yet very organic Dorin Negrau runway show. I arrived earlier than most people, and was let into the tent shortly after. Entering into Dorin Negrau’s show I had a ticket for standing room only but shortly after standing I was told I was able to snag a seat. Well just my luck somebody who actually had a ticket to the seat I was invited to ARRIVED. The lady who invited me to the already taken seat found me another seat, in the FRONT ROW. I was so excited inside I could jump.
Dorin Negrau’s runway show and collection was inspired by the myth of the Vampire Dracula duality, and being born in Transylvania, Romania this was his first show in NYC ever. He wanted to show homage to the intricate embroidery technique his grandmother and many other women performed in Romania. He wanted to show and eclectic free spirit within his collection, and you could see that throughout the show and the way it was presented. I loved the way he really did show homage of his Romanian roots from beaded thick belts, to light linen fabrics. His show was truly breath taking, and made you feel as if you left with a little bit of Romania in your memory.
I snagged a shot in front of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week sign, and of course a fellow fashionista kindly captured this moment for me!
This was the show opener which was breath taking, and so romantic!
Some of the models wore sandals with their outfits to show the free spirited side of Dorin Negrau’s collection!
The two outfits below were shot by the photographer at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and they were my favoritespieces from his collection.
I hope I have the opportunity to see Dorin Negrau have a show at Mercedes Benz Fashion week again, because this show showed his true talent and love for his roots an I know he has more great collections to show. Let me know what you liked about Dorin Negrau runway show, and what you want to see him do next. Until next time Chicers!
