Rini Jain Storms NYFW SS23

By Krish Narsinghani, Vaughn Lowery, Dhruv Bhatia

Creator and fashion influencer/model, Rini Jain, covers this year’s New York Fashion Week with 360 Magazine. We sat down with her to hear all the hot takes and highlights on one of fashion’s biggest weeks.

What shows did you attend at this year’s NYFW?

I was thrilled to be a part of some amazing shows this season like  Pamella Roland, Dennis Basso, Homolog, Selkie, Tia Adeola, Rebecca Minkoff, Tiffany Brown, June79, Melke, Revolve, Bruce Glen, Deity, Leonardo 5th Avenue, and more. I also attended Vogue Magazine’s 130th Anniversary Celebration hosted by Vogue Club. I made sure to catch the glimpses online for some of the other shows that I was invited to, but missed attending those due to conflicts, NYC weather, and traffic like Frederick Anderson, Cucculelli Shaheen, Willy Chavarria, Blonds, KGL (and a few more).

How was this season different from the last season?  

The number of runways, presentations, after-parties, and private viewings was clearly high enough to make up for two pandemic years. The waiting lines and guest lists both seemed more inflated than in the past seasons. Even though the central location of NYFW remained Spring Studios, there were more shows this season that were offsite which made it extremely difficult to commute from one show to the other. There were more Influencers and Content Creators in attendance, highlighting how digital content has been instrumental in helping brands move products. This season, I personally had a record number of show invites and collaborations with designers to wear their pieces during NYFW. Also, NYFW was more international this season with two major Italian houses in the list – Fendi and Marni.

Who were you most excited to see and why?

I was most excited for Pamella Roland and Dennis Basso not only because I truly relate to the unapologetic glamour and glitz in their collections, but also since it was the milestone year and show for both of them. It has been 20 years, and 40 years for Pamella DeVos and Dennis Basso respectively since they launched their own fashion labels. While Pamella Roland set was inspired by the streets of New York with a backdrop that looked like a flower stand, Dennis Basso showcase was at the incredible ballroom at the Pierre Hotel with no dearth of celebrities in attendance – everybody from Martha Stewart, to Kris Jenner, to Carmen Dell’Orefice, and more.

What looks stood out to you?

There were so many. Amongst the shows I attended – Dennis Basso’s furry outerwear, and Pamella Roland’s feather detailing was interestingly used in the pieces. I loved the rich colors and dramatic, avant-garde designs of Melke. I am totally eyeing the ruffles, bows, frills, oversized collars, and bags that resembled pillows from the Selkie showcase. Also, I loved Tia Adeola’s take on knitted fabrics, cutouts, and body-cons. From some of the other shows – I absolutely loved Tom Ford’s look for Bella and Gigi Hadid, and the hot pink suit was so stunning. The patchwork pieces at Coach, and the purple and green sequin look at Fendi certainly caught my eye. Peter Do’s opening look was absolutely magical, a perfect example of fluid tailoring. I also loved Tibi’s stab at menswear, especially the full-denim perfectly baggy look. Marni’s ultra-flared velvet jeans featuring artwork of Flaminia Veronesi was a highlight for sure. 

Were there recurring themes or trends that caught your eye?

Fringes, Cargo Trousers, Sequins, Feathers, plenty of Back-to-School looks, and the color Purple were definitely some of the common trends amongst many shows. 

Which designers did you wear? 

I wore pieces from Ivan Young, Oroy Shakhidi, Bani Pasricha, Kerry Parker, Nirmooha, MAM, Misa Harada, Uncuffed Leather. 

Why did you pick those designers?

I chose a mix of designers and brands that are creatively different and unique from each other, represent different visions, cultures, the pieces that will allow me to experiment and style the looks uniquely, and allow me to present my personal style and creativity. I relate so much to the flamboyance and elegance of the pieces from Ivan Young. At the same time, I was so intrigued with how uniquely Oroy Shakhidi constructs a piece, and its opulent finishes. MAM, Misa Harada, Kerry Parker are some of the brands that allow me to bring that element of “statement” in my looks with their accessories. With Uncuffed Leather, I relate so much with the immigrant story of the designer Olga Barsky, and its vision to create pieces and accessories with sustainable leather. Every season, I make sure I wear a few pieces that represent my South Asian/Indian roots, hence Nirmooha and Bani Pasricha, that I absolutely love. 

What was your vision behind each look?

I usually get inspired from previous eras, mannequins, runways, movies, art and more for my looks. You may describe my style “Mix Match” because I love to create my own looks that are inspired from multiple things at the same time. If I had to describe my look for the Selkie show this season, I would  say “Barbie meets Royal Family”, where I paired a Ruffles Pink Checkered set with feathers details, with gloves that had flower details and a Hat to give it a Royal Family vibe. For another look, I created a modern Audrey Hepburn by pairing a black velvet dress with power shoulders, paired with a statement pearl body necklace. For shows like Dennis Basso, and Pamella Roland, I created an extremely sophisticated, flamboyant, elegant, decadent vibe that totally fit into the vibe of the shows I was attending, by wearing a statement dress embellished with ostrich feathers. 

Were any of your outfits influenced by your South Asian background?

Yes, absolutely! I make it a point to represent my culture and showcase amazing Indian designers through at least one of my looks every season. This time I wore a stunning saree from Nirmooha and styled it in a very unique way with gold accessories like gloves, handbag, and vintage earrings. The outfit was an absolute show stealer and garnered compliments from the attendees of the event hosted by Afterpay, the official partners of NYFW, and was also covered by various media houses including Getty Images. 

Why is it important for you to attend Fashion Week?

I am a Fashion Student at heart. I learn something new from every single show I attend, and get inspired to create better. It is a huge opportunity for me to connect with amazing brands and designers, network with like-minded people, have fun and get more creative and experimental with my own outfits during the Fashion Week.

Listen to Alicia Gutiérrez and Vaughn Lowery on 360 MAG Amazon | Spotify | Google | Apple podcast.

“Life is a path,” – Alicia Gutiérrez

Alicia Gutiérrez, Madrid-native,
is a college graduate with a degree in journalism. At 5’5 with brown hair and hazel eyes, this magnificent belle already has her life’s blueprint. Yesterday, we spoke about her success in modeling and moving from Spain to New York City.

Upon booking a major campaign in her homeland, Alicia decided to contact agencies abroad. Making extensive use of her media training, she compiled a spreadsheet of industry professionals, from model agencies to photographers. On Instagram, she searched for make-up artists and fell into a rabbit hole. It was there, she discovered websites like Models.com, validating as well as authenticating all the talents of the industry.

With good posture and immense confidence, regardless of measurements and shortcomings, this body positive person recognizes her manifestations. And dreams, in bringing them forth, will eventually come true. In fact, as a Miley Cyrus fanatic, she recounts a case where she stumbled into the singer’s camp while waiting in line for an activation. Thinking about how she was feeling, she entered into an awareness while she was near them. This occupation of space helped to reveal her fate.

From time to time we’re in contact with somebody who has something we can’t put our finger on, I don’t know what. The same ‘it’ factor led her to be signed by One Management and to work with different brands like Calvin Klein, SKIMS and Milk Makeup.

Inevitably, her star will align with entertainment giants such as Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum and Ashley Graham. In other words, her mind exudes inner compassion, balance and grace. Traits that a lot of people can’t learn or teach – it’s innate. As our conversation continued, it began to shine brighter and brighter, appearing dowey, “Like a glaze donut,” said Alicia.

It’s only a matter of minutes, this infectious energy will quickly burst into the entertainment. After all, she’s already adorned the pages of Vogue España, Elle Mexico, L’Officiel Mexico and covered Glamour Spain.

Listen to Jarel ‘Jay’ Jordan chat with Vaughn Lowery on the 360 MAG Amazon / Spotify podcast HERE.

Jay Jordan, an emerging model, breaks back onto the scene with professionalism, pride and perseverance. After modeling during a NYFW SS23 presentation at Daylight Studio for Terry Singh, he has a zoom chat with Move Like Water × Be Fluid author Vaughn Lowery.

Even though Jordan just signed a deal with esteemed One Management, he understands he wants to prove his inner demons wrong. When he talks to Lowery, he begins to realize that he needs to keep doing things differently. They talk about self-care, punctuality, personal touch, spending time alone with your booker so you can stay in their minds.

Since the lockdown as a result of COVID-19, the industry has suffered greatly from models and agents who have lost their jobs. In fact, The Industry Model Management closed the doors of their Miami office during the two-year hiatus.

With spellbinding eyes, good bone structure in tandem with natural hair, Jordan could well be what the advertising and fashion sector needs to help rebuild their monarchy.

New York City Fashion Designer Terry Singh shows at NYFW announced via 360 MAGAZINE

GURU: TERRY SINGH

Terry Singh exhibited his gender-neutral SS23 collection during NYFW at Daylight Studio on Friday, September 9.

Vaughn Lowery has taken Singh to heart in a two-part series on 360 MAG Amazon | Google | Spotify | Apple podcast. They have a meticulous discussion about the new world order and how it will redefine gender norms.

Native New Yorker, Terry Singh, is reshaping the way the world views masculinity, diminishing society’s view of how a man should look.

After a six-month tour of India as a Yogi, Singh had a revelation. During a morning ritual at the summit of a mountain, his swami changed forever his male state of mind while bathing him while the sun kissed his skin.

After his spiritual journey, Singh defied his Western imposition of love, giving birth to his eponymous mark. He was inspired to recreate this sense of release through a dhoti, an ancient garment worn by leaders and warriors. “I was inspired by the freedom to wear a dhoti because it flows and it also somehow brought me to this space,” the cultural curator said.

In addition, Terry explains that nature is the essential motivation for his capsule. ‘‘I would say that we are always evolving and changing tomorrow, you can watch a documentary, you notice something in nature, and you feel something, and that feeling that comes to you is so intrinsic that it only needs you,’’ states Terry.

Upon his return to New York, he received a new direction: reintroduce the perspective of men’s clothing. This deep movement enabled Singh to proudly wear his dhoti alias the NYC wrap. His vision was to impact world culture. According to the designer, dhoti is a reflection of his transforming experience and the way we enter into ourselves over a period of time.

Terry Singh, a father of four, identified his suits as his signature, pairing them with his elegant salt and pepper hairstyle. While designing the pieces, Singh constantly ensures that he preserves a certain masculinity in the room. Instead of wearing a belt, he added adjustable buttons to the waist strap.

No doubt, Terry Singh, alongside other progressives like Pyer Moss and Telfar break down the barriers in fashion. Lowery continues, “You are saving lives.” After all, the statement of classy masculine figurines on a stage like NYFW will encourage others to do the same, creating a domino effect. And, perhaps put an end to the intimidation which Jaden Smith, Harry Styles and Machine Gun Kelly continually encounter in the mass media rocking skirts.

In the very near future, Terry Singh expects men of all ages to reach for his suit of armor instead of a traditional tuxedo.

Listen PT2 of Singh on 360 MAG.

Ema Savahl Couture Debuts Miami Swim Week via Ema Savahl Couture for use by 360 MAGAZINE

EMA SAVAHL – MIAMI SWIM

On Wednesday July 13th at 7:30PM Miami’s very own, Ema Savahl Couture, will be debuting a new swimwear collection at the opening show of Miami Swim Week The Shows at SLS Hotel South Beach. Ema Savahl Couture will be featuring 36 new looks and a matching NFT collection in a new virtual fashion swimwear Metaverse like never seen before. During the opening show, there will be a silent auction with all ticket sales and auction proceeds donated to The Little Lighthouse Foundation.

Ema’s collection is inspired by a goddess’ love for nature through exquisite, hand painted artwork imposed onto garments to produce three-dimensional textures. The story of this collection is told in three parts.

Part one “The Painted Lady” Ema is in celebration of the female essence in every woman. She is borrowing looks from her vintage collections of delicate corsetry, hand painted flowers, crystals, and bows. In part two, her woman is merged with nature, she is in vibrant greens and psychedelic colored flowers. The nature is blooming through her. In part three the whole look transforms into a more spiritual realm where the same leaves and flowers become alive, and you start seeing life running through glowing veins. The subtle glow in turquoise hues blues and purples show how nature, spirituality, and technology merge together in a beautiful harmony. Ema closes the collection with a glow in the dark butterfly as a sign of the major transformation going on in our world. This way she completes a full circle of ¼ of a century in service to the
female essence, her beauty, her strength, her evolution.

Ema believes that technology is the training wheels to our new spirituality, and states that: “We are moving into a digital world that is mirroring our reality. As we use technology to manipulate our lives, we must be aware not to stray too far from our true human nature made of love, compassion, and friendship. The collection is all about the healthy way of using technology to respect, enhance and beautify our humanity.”
