Sergio Hudson presents colourful RTW Spring 2023 at NYFW
Fashion should be fun and creative, thus Hudson sets out to make his collection 11 portray so. With his newest collection, Sergio Hudson evoked the early ’90s with shoulder pads, bright hues, and graffiti designs.
His collection “11 spring offering” was inspired by the artist Jason Naylor. In a diverse exhibition of energy, Hudson—who has dressed celebrities like Beyoncé and Michelle Obama—drew inspiration for his New York Fashion Week looks from the designers’ vibrant and almost psychedelic murals.
Orange miniskirts, color-blocked slipdresses, youthful dresses with cutouts, and a variety of new creations of tailored clothing—a core category to Hudson’s collections seen on a range of prominent celebrities this past year—made for an impactful and empowering lineup that focused on bright, youthful, and enjoyable clothing. The iconic ’90s hit song “Finally” was playing while the group of models, who resembled real-life Barbies, strutted down the runway wearing high ponytails.
Additionally, there were adorable baby t-shirts bearing the Sergio Hudson emblem, a brand first. On a variety of vibrant silk tops and skirts that flowed down the runway, the same vibrant print worked well.
Fun may seem easy, but it’s a significant trend that’s frequently overlooked by the more sophisticated designer types. Hudson centers this concept in his joyous work, and it connects. “One thing about the Sergio Hudson girl,” he said, “she wants to have fun.”
Sunny Hostin, co-host of “The View,” Joy Reid, a journalist, and Kimora Lee Simmons, model and creator of the Baby Phat brand, were among the important personalities there. Kimora Lee Simmons was there to support her daughter Aoki Lee Simmons as she walked the catwalk.
This season, according to Hudson, he was designing for everyone rather than just one particular person. He remarked, “I am glad of the efforts the American fashion industry has done to be more inclusive. In the last year or two, they have advanced significantly.
