The Inaugural NY Men’s Fashion Week

By: Shannon Moody, NYC Editor

Last week marked a 1st for the NYFW (New York Fashion Week) circuit. Menswear designers were given their own week in July to showcase their Spring/Summer 2016 collections. Runway shows & presentations were going on from about July 13th – July 16th all across NYC!

It would prove quite difficult to recap every show, but here are some major highlights from the various shows I was able to check out.

David Hart —  bold prints & colors, as well as a brand staple with excellent fit & tailoring.
