I did some homework before I headed to NYFW. There are so many shows and very little time for me to see them all. My goal was to see as large a variety, range and style of shows as I could cram into one and a half days. The first one I went to was the Leanne Marshall fall/winter collection. You can read about her effortlessly elegant dresses here. After a quick trip back to our hotel and my own wardrobe change, we headed to the Gotham Hall and the Style Fashion Week shows. That’s where we caught the Control Sector show. The theme and vibe was a totally different one.

We were in the Hall for several shows and noticed that as the day went on, each show was a bit bigger and more crowded than the last. There was not an empty seat in the house when Control Sector took the runway presenting their FW’16 Collection “The End.” This urban streetwear was matched with a strong, enthusiastic reaction from the crowd. Their mix of minimalist chic and stylish shapes created a coveted buzz throughout the audience.

Control Sector is a NYC-based contemporary streetwear brand with urban appeal. I lived in Shanghai for about 10 years when I was younger so I was pretty into street sleek style back then. I love that cool vibe and free spirit Control Sector presented. Just like their mission states, they aim to defy conventions yet remain wearable. Certainly this brand can help you add the confidence to dress for what’s next.

I was so impressed to learn that Control Sector started with a big dream that two broke guys/brothers Adam Thomison and Luke Deenihan had. Adam Thomison had cofounded a tech company in California that went under during the recession. Within a month’s time, he lost his company and his apartment. After he lost everything, he had to live in a friend’s house and sold spray-painted T-shirts on the beach to pay for food. It reminds me of when I first moved to Shanghai and lived on not even $1 per day.

For most normal people, after losing everything and having to start over, they will be very careful and not be willing to take any new risks. But Adam decided to make his comeback in a totally different industry and risk even more. He moved to NYC with his brother Luke Deenihan to learn fashion at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s degree program. At the college, they met Amadeus, who was in the Menswear Program, and who was also impressed by their skills. That was how the dream team formed.

The story about how they got loads of attention from the fashion world started in February 2014, when they were invited to join the “Art, Hearts, Fashion” show at Lincoln Center featuring young designers. Can you believe back then their collection existed only as renderings and sketches? But after spending probably 100 hours that week sewing, they made the whole collection, 18 pieces in 10 days. And that first collection earned them a spot in the fashion world since then.

I hope you enjoyed this street sleek style as much I did and have a great day!

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.
