The looks at Alax W. Diamond
Spring/Summer 2015 mens and women’s collections are in full swing here in New York City, so let the coverage begin! My fashion week has been full with various events, including attending shows, shooting backstage, and hosting, so I wanted to start from the beginning.
On Thursday, September 4th, I had the opportunity of attending the women’s presentation for emerging designer, Alax W. Diamond. The Thailand-born, New York-based designer is now in his fourth season, conceptualizing his line in Spring 2013. His aesthetic melds the simplicity of menswear in a feminine silhouette, accented by clean color.
Full line-up of models
The Spring/Summer 2015 collection was based in neutral black and white, with color pops in canary yellow, magenta, and fuchsia, showcasing seven strong, yet wearable looks. The color pops continued on the face, with orange eyeshadow on lids paired with a pale lash line, and nude lips. Make-up and nails were done by Kryolan.

I really digged the wearability factor of Diamond’s collection. I love beautiful garments, but wearability is key, and I can definitely see myself rocking a few of these pieces. See some of my favorite looks below.
I love the peeking midriff and folds in the fabric
Super-wearable sheath in canary? Sign me up!
FAVORITE: How can I say know to an easy top and skirt combo that is “Delicious?”
This is just the beginning of my Spring/Summer 2015 #NYFW coverage. I hope you enjoy the photos, and be sure to keep a look out for more!
