Rini Jain, South Asian Content Creator and American Influencer Award Nominee, attends New York Fashion Week, culminating with an exclusive by 360 MAGAZINE.

Rini Jain Storms New York Fashion Week

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.

Alicia Gutiérrez – A Model’s Guide

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.

LQQK Studio × Reebok

Today, design collective LQQK Studio and Reebok have unveiled their first official collaboration featuring two iterations (GY7109/GY7110, $120) of the iconic Classic Leather. Available in unisex sizing, both pairs launch September 16 exclusively from LQQKSTUDIO.COM, followed by a September 21 global release for the “green camo” colorway (GY7110) from Reebok.com and select retailers. LQQK invites consumers to 109 Montrose Ave., Brooklyn, N.Y. for a special event Friday, September 16 through Monday September 19, 12:00pm EST – 7:00pm EST, where they’ll have early access to the LQQK-exclusive Classic Leather (GY7109) colorway, with complimentary food, beverage, and promo apparel to be provided.

Brooklyn-based screen printer and design collective LQQK Studio has put its own creative spin on Reebok’s most well-known silhouette, the Classic Leather, resulting in printing-inspired shoe that people of all backgrounds can connect to, while encouraging creativity and evolution.

“Reebok is a classic brand that holds a special place in a lot of people’s hearts,” commented LQQK Studio Founder Alex Dondero. “I think streetwear functions in a funny way that creates a uniform that people subconsciously fall into, so it’s important to constantly evolve, and Reebok is willing to embrace that.”  

Reflecting the studio’s deep roots in street culture, art, and fashion, LQQK’s Classic Leather offers a leaf-printed camouflage design over a white gum outsole. The first pair arrives in ‘bubble gum’ and ‘pine green’, with the latter done in ‘wild brown’ and ‘bright ochre’, with both featuring detailed LQQK branding at the tongue, window box, and heel.

“When we designed this shoe, we wanted a printed pattern to be the main focus,” continued Dondero. “We didn’t want to make a white shoe that doesn’t push the envelope. That’s how we came up with this wild printed pattern shoe… The Printer’s Shoe!”

Product photography (HERE) showcases LQQK’s favorite screen printers in action: “We visited Brooklyn’s Pegasus Prints (@pegasus_prints) and Baltimore’s Carpet Company (@carpetcompany),” added Dondero. “These two print shops fully embody what it means to be hands-on printmakers, and both produce incredible work!” 

The LQQK Studio x Reebok Classic Leather capsule drops September 16 exclusively from LQQKSTUDIO.COM and the Brooklyn, N.Y. launch event,  followed by a September 21 global release for the “green camo” colorway (GY7110) from Reebok.com and select retailers.
