Just Drew it girl collection NYFW16 at Style Fashion Week
This is the 3rd fashion designer I’d like to introduce to you from NYFW16. You can click here to read about Leanne Marshall’s effortlessly elegant offerings and here for street sleek from Control Sector.
The 3rd brand is called Just Drew and it was named after Andrew Warren, who is the grandson of fashion tycoon David Warren. I was not born in America so I am not very familar with a lot of cultural or fashion history. But I read about how David Warren launched his very successful dress business in the 60’s when dresses were not even in fashion. Such a bold move! So I think it is pretty accurate to say that fashion is in Andrew’s genes.
Growing up in and around New York City, fashion was always a huge part of Andrew’s life. Andrew also draws style inspiration from his young and cool friends. As young people’s tastes and ideas are constantly evolving, their style is also always changing. It’s important to Andrew for his line to appeal to the next generation. And he for sure hit the bulls eye!
His winter/fall collection is another highly anticipated show at Style Fashion Week at Gotham Hall in Manhattan’s fashion district. Excitement pulsed through the venue with each appearance of his many celebrity guest models. These included Abigail Breslin, Tiffany Trump, Kyra Kennedy, Gaia Matisse, Eliza Johnson and more who graced the runway in his designs.
This “It Girl” inspired collection was matched with a truly buzz worthy reaction from the audience. He received a standing ovation from most in the crowd. Just Drew is a mix of sultriness and sophistication, with unique detailing. The extraordinary statement details brought an edge and innovation to the average “it girl” clothing. His collection showed daring personality and polished artistry. Want to be a polished cool girl? His brand can be a very good choice.

NYFW16 Leanne Marshall fall and winter collection fashion show
In April, 2007, I moved to America from China to marry my man. My new life started then. It began with learning English and the culture of my new home. The best way for me to do that was watching American TV shows. Quickly I discovered and was hooked on a little show called Project Runway. You may have heard of it. I always dreamed of being a fashion designer so I was so pumped up by that show. And that was where I first “met” Leanne Marshall who was the winner of Project Runway Season 5 in 2008.
Since day one, Leanne Marshall already had her signature layers, ruffles and architecture silhouette look on her skirts and cocktail dresses. And it’s worked. She mainly focused on her theme and has become more famous because of it. I started to see the effortlessly elegant vibe from her design since 2013. And her 2016 fall and winter collection, which showed a few days ago at New York Fashion Week, is totally first class. And I should know; I was there!
Like she said in the past, her dresses are made for movement. It was breathtaking when I saw those beautiful pieces on the runway. The ways they flowed when the models were walking made me think of the goddesses of ancient Greece. Just like a lot of live events, you really have to be there and see it with your own eyes to feel the full experience. I feel very lucky to be invited to this show!
Every year she chooses a different color theme and for this show she went pretty dark. There were a lot of blacks and browns but still with some pops of yellow. She explained that she was finding her inspiration from the leaves of fall.
Nowadays Leanne has become more and more famous with her handmade bridal designs. You can find some super chic and flowy wedding dresses on her website here. Thank you very much for reading and please come back often to see all my NYFW16 fashion show reports!
