Justin Alexander Spring 2018 Runway Show
Justin Alexander introduced our Spring 2018 collection yesterday with a flurry of flashes and a buzz of anticipation looking expectantly toward a sleek black runway at the Edition hotel in Manhattan. Overlooking Madison Square Park, the venue had an unmistakable air of sophisticated modernism that perfectly complimented the mood of the event.
The seductive piano intro of Marian Hill’s „Down“ set the stage to usher in a procession of fiercely feminine brides. Bold lips, sleek hair, and meticulously selected black accessories accented each look. Wide-brimmed hats revealed a captivating glimpse of an alluring eye; fishnet masks added a veil of seduction, chic chokers brought a nostalgic nod to the 90s and bold belts had a distinctly unbridled beauty. Each look radiated the allure of the modern bride. She is fearless and beautiful, graceful and bold. She demands a wedding day look that is unexpected, unforgettable, and unmistakably hers.
The event reflected the glamour and elegance of the collection, an ode to the ornate details of the art nouveau movement. The Spring 2018 collection drew inspiration from 1950s and 1960s silhouettes and draped them with modern details – lavish beading, intricate embroidery, stunning illusion bodices and daring black accents balance subtlety with tenacity.
Justin Warshaw, president and designer, proudly followed the collection down the runway and humbly accepted applause for another season of hard work, dedication, and inspiration. As a third generation in the industry, this collection marked a pinnacle moment in his family’s history, one that began in 1946 with veils and head pieces has now become collection reveal that turned every head.
As the music faded, there was a palpable air of excitement knowing that these designs would soon be trading a promenade down the runway for a march down the aisle, a fierce-faced model for a glowing bride, and a flurry of media buzz for a vow, a kiss, and a joyful couple, looking forward to a lifetime of love.
