For Your Immediate Attention: What Happened at NYFW 2023?

Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have become good friends now. Therefore, you all know my favorite time of the year has just passed.


Therefore, it was only time-fitting that we did a RECAP on some of my favorite looks.

I must tell you all that I enjoyed looking at the FASHIONS from this year, but I hope 2024 will be even better.

Many of the fashion influencers I watch sat this show out, but I hope London and Milan will help me recover from their absence.

But it presented a lot of new individuals to watch, which was quite exciting!

As a result, let’s discuss these IT Girls and IT boys!

#1: We have to discuss the incomparably talented Teyana Taylor.

Sis was back on her playground in her hometown, New York, and she was not easing up!

Serving nothing but male fashion glamour, Taylor provided us with the best fashion look of the week.

Attending the Naomi Campbell x Pretty Little Thing Collaboration event, Taylor stepped in, rocking a tailored suit with a Dylanlex chain detailed body suit under. Giving the audience nothing but mature sexiness.

But she wouldn’t be Teyana if she didn’t add a little touch of New York. As a result, she rocked a New York baseball cap, and ladies and gentlemen, it was the perfect touch. It brought the entire outfit together!

Let me know in the comments how you feel about this look. Would you change anything? Or do you like it just as she has presented it?

#2: Hands down, it must go to the only MARY J. BLIGE!

In my head the entire weekend, her hit song ft. Dave East, Rent Money, was her musical background for every outfit she wore this NYFW (Blige & East, 2022).

Attending fashion extraordinaire LaQuan Smith’s NYFW presentation, Mary J. Blige stepped out in one of his original pieces, giving us only HIP HOP & R & B royalty!

The entire piece inspired my wardrobe for Fall, from her signature knee-high boots to her matching leather biker jacket and skirt, Blige Kilt Fashion Week!

And, because I enjoyed her look so much, I have to mention one of her other outfits honorably.

Appearing at the NYFW presentation for designer AREA, Blige gave us another hot and trendy look that I know the IT girls will be following into Fall and winter 2023.

From the tailored shorts to the long overlay with embroidered appliques, to the baseball hat to the simple, clear heel, Blige won fashion week in my eyes!

I felt like I saw glimpses of the singer from her Real Love days, reminding us that Black doesn’t crack!

Shout out to Mary’s stylists, who picked and styled these beautiful pieces. I am Obsessed!

#3: Giving it to the fashionable Jenee Naylor!

One thing about Sergio Hudson is that he will make a well-tailored outfit, and he did just that with Jenee Naylor!

The beautiful It Girl attended Hudson’s NYFW presentation, rocking tailored flared black pants with a matching crop top and silver accessories.

But, for me, the winning point of the outfit was the pink blazer that gave the entire look a pop of color!

With New York City as her backdrop, Naylor gave what needed to be delivered! Her outfit is a mood board for all my girls who like a good look for the Fall in the office or on the road!

#4: For my Guys, it goes to Armon Warren

Styled by the one and only Visionary Bash, Warren gave a glimpse into his fashion closet!

Attending the Tommy Hilfiger Brunch, Warren rocked a Tommy Jeans bomber jacket with a Murder Bravado ripped detailed jeans.

Giving simple but fashionable, I enjoyed watching Warren’s look for this NYFW season. It spoke to the stylish men who give street style realness.

I am looking for more from him in the future, and I can’t wait to see more from Visionary Bash!

Styling individuals like IT Girl herself, Aaliyah Jay, the Clermont Twins, and Lola Brooke, I can’t wait to see more male looks from the fashion stylist!

Well, ladies and gentlemen, that brings us to the end of our NYFW RECAP! We won’t discuss fashion again until it hits the streets of Boston in October, so I’ll get something fun to discuss in two weeks!

Let me know in the comments your favorite look! How do you feel about NYFW this year? Did it give, or was it lacking?

Peace & Prosperity,

Jadis “IHateAdulthood” DeShong-Venay
