The looks from the autumn/winter 2018 fashion shows proved modest wear has never been so prevalent, and the attendees at the recent 15th Annual CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund Awards event further demonstrated long sleeves and hemlines are anything but boring. While entering New York’s Brooklyn Navy Yard, they showed how modesty could be all about attitude, styling and letting the clothes speak for themselves.
As they enjoyed the sit down dinner and a runway presentation with the work of the 10 talented, hopeful finalists, the tastemakers showered us with lots of covered up autumn style inspo. Instagram’s Eva Chen, who was on the judging panel, looked amazing in high-watt sequins, as did footwear designer Tabitha Simmons.
While presenting the top honour to Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss, Emily Blunt opted for a fun, feminine frock with an all-over polka dot print, pleats and a handkerchief hem. We also loved the striking blues from Vogue’s DIrector of Special Events, Sylvana Ward Durrett, and Ebonee Davis.
Plus, Diane von Fürstenberg, the American/Belgian designer mostly known for her wrap dresses, and Caroline Trentini showed how florals and patterns look dramatic and decadent when rendered on black backgrounds.
