For those who caught our live stream during day one of New York Fashion Week’s spring–summer 2014 collections, congratulations! We’ll keep the stream up, but, for those of you who missed the shows, we feature them below.
   Nicholas K, BCBG Max Azria, Supima, Tadashi Shoji, Marissa Webb, Candela, the Art Institute of New York and Richard Chai are covered.
   Nicholas K took an Apache inspiration, creating soft, earthy sportswear. BCBG Max Azria also kept things light, with loose shapes and soft shades. Tadashi Shoji kept things feminine with lace, frills, lattice-work and pastels.
   Marissa Webb had a more edgy style with her reinterpreted schoolgirls, with skinny ties, corsets, and leather miniskirts, in brighter colours and tweed. Candela, however, kept things soft with sheer silk and lace, with its installation.
   The Art Institute of New York showcased the work of current students Daniel Jennings, Darhel Anthony, Haley Hysong, Ian Jai Park, Josimar Torres and Michael Doyle, and graduates Diana Sanchez, Isaiah Isaac (both from 2012), Luz Ortiz and Qutishia Lee (from 2013), who hold Associate of Applied Science in Fashion Design degrees.
   Richard Chai’s collection was expressly soft—he cited his inspiration as ‘soft geometry’—though it featured some harder stripes and geometric shapes. However, the detailing was indeed softer, with pleats, sequins, and billowing trouser legs.
