Whenever LaQuan Smith wants to display his fashion designs, he often chooses famous New York locations. The famous designer chose the Great Hall, also known as Cipriani Broadway, a historic structure in Manhattan close to Wall Street, the epitome of American financial prowess, for his Fall/Winter 2024 collection.

Smith discussed the late 80s and early 90s fusion of sartorial western American style as his inspiration in an interview that he gave to FashionNetwork.com after the event. He imagined his future wife as a sophisticated Wall Street vixen who reveled in exploring daywear while exuding power.

The show began with a stunning pencil skirt in the manner of thigh-high split trouser pants with a pony skin pattern in caramel tones and a matching blouse that was evocative of a traditional men’s button-down. The models sashayed to a music selection that Smith had made with great care, creating an atmosphere of confidence and charm.

Although Smith’s hallmark precision tailoring and sensual fits were still there, there was a clear movement in this collection toward additional coverage as compared to Smith’s earlier designs. Smith set out to design daywear with a touch of sex appeal in response to consumer feedback.

Navy pinstripe suiting that clings to the body and liquid latex four-way stretch materials that give an air of sophistication were essential elements. The most striking looks were the figure-hugging gowns that sported surprising elements like ruched accents and open backs, radiating an air of contemporary elegance.

Featuring luxurious fabrics like silk charmeuse, gabardine wools, rich suedes, and sparkling gold, the collection exudes an air of effortless elegance that is ideal for both day and night.

Smith’s ethos as a designer is centered on praising the feminine form through the creation of timeless, well-tailored shapes. His ability to reimagine contemporary glamor with each collection guarantees that his designs will be in vogue for many more seasons.
