Typical Fashion Week in NY consists of me scanning social media and devouring any glimpse I can of next seasons hot colors, styles, trends, etc. On the occasion I will attend a Fashion Show, but honestly I haven’t been feeling myself as of lately and don’t really focus on fashion so much for me but more for my little people. However this year as I began to scan my emails for highlights, I was given a little more than your typical recaps, courtesy of my partnership with Verizon! With an invitation to BabyGhost Spring NYFW presentation at Milk Studios in my inbox I couldn’t wait to attend.
Qiaoran Huang and Joshua Hupper, the design duo behind Babyghost, presented a Spring collection inspired by a poem about death from the 1940s.
Ironically when one thinks of death, and dying it’s not a subject that rests lightly. However, Babyghost’s creator’s Qiaoran Huang and Joshua Hupper, managed to curate a Spring-friendly collection that’s light, and breathable despite the theme.
Mixing textiles of lace, and sheer fabrics in hues of a neutral palette, with tones of deep blues BabyGhost’s presentation highlighted oversized T-shirts, cropped trenches and chunky cardigans in weightless fabrics.
The inspiration behind the collection, the poem itself, speaks of death as being a friend. Printed on various pieces, from T-shirts to maxi-skirts throughout the Spring collection were lines from the poem. Although you may feel a little eerie, as I said the poem relates to death as a friend and provides a edgy yet dark, contorted element of romance to the collection.
