Spring/Summer 2020 Collection at the NYFW: Afffair
Azerbajiani designer, Rufat Ismayil opened the New York Fashion Week as he showcased his brand Afffair’s Spring/Summer 2020 Collection at his Spring Studios. The collection was inspired by Ismayil’s homeland, ‘Azerajiani.’ The designer set the mood with the Middle Eastern remix music which was played while the model walked the runway.
Think of this brand and the first thing that comes to mind are evening gowns in contemporary and sophisticated designs and it was the same for this season. The collection was titled, “KHARI BULBUL” and with the tagline, “When Fashion meets Perfection.” The Spring/Summer 2020 was vibrant in every way from it’s color palette to the diverse designs of evening gowns. In picking a palette the designer picked a range that was spread across light heather blues and pastel pinks to purples and tangerines. The whole collection was dominated by fringes and ruffles. Other than that, the designer also used organza, chiffon and silk in his gowns. The designer showed constraint in his collection because even though the materials used were heavy, the gowns never crossed the line and became too much to handle. A beautiful, fun collection to start the New York Fashion Week.
