“Honestly, we just wanted to have a good time,” said fashion designer David Blond of the Blonds, regarding the theme of the brand’s latest collection. In what was titled “Cosmic Cabaret,” David and co-designer Phillipe Blond debuted a collection that celebrated returning to in-person Fashion Week.
A true cabaret show, performances were given by musicians Bodine and Lion Babe. Paris Hilton walked the runway; reality TV star Christine Quinn of Selling Sunset was among the guests.
There was no shortage of glitter, sequins, or sex appeal with this collection that merged the worlds of costume and fashion. “The worlds of costume and fashion overlap so much, you can wear our pieces to lunch now,” David said.
The '60s were back in full force at Social Work. The brand, which opted for a digital presentation, showcased a collection that was inspired by the movie The Dreamers, a film that refers to classic and French New wave cinema, as well as the 1968 Paris student riots. Of course, these were no riot clothes. Sixties Russian Matchbox prints, florals, ombre, and embroidery made up this collection that had a touch of Paris chic fit for modern, intellectualist sensibilities.
