Through this SS23 collection, Juana Martín is presenting her “Orígenes” collection, an ode to her Spanish and flamenco roots. This collection reflects the beginnings of her work in fabrics and prints, and also offers an accurate result to her flamenco style, with a more avant-garde touch.
Inspired by her summers in Málaga, a place that has seen many of her creative processes, Juana Martín returns to this city to create “Orígenes.” The blue of its beaches, its people and the harmony of its land are embodied in this collection that, according to the designer’s words, “is designed for an elegant and transgressive woman, who dares to take another step towards evolution and personal development.”
Also, in the “Orígenes” fashion show were presenting accessories such as the Christian Louboutin shoes, Nadia Chellaoui bags and Plata Pura goldsmith work. Juana Martín offers us a beautiful gathering between renowned designers and her vision of design, to unveil a contemporary and modern collection.
“Your shirt is too low. Your pants are too masculine. In fact, don’t wear pants. Dress feminine. That’s too much. Don’t show your midriff. Show your shoulders. Cover up. You’re too dressed down. You’re too dressed up. Loosen up. Wear some color. That’s too much color.”
Femininity was constantly subjected to power judgments, whether through social norms or sartorial verdicts. This made us doubt, overanalyze, and overthink what we put on.
The Spring Summer 23 is a statement for the uncomplicated, the easygoing and the effortless. Furthering NEHERA’s foundation in tailoring, the collection introduces easy to operate wardrobe, mentally friendly and physically enjoyable.
The narrative arc of the collection is liberating the Woman from the tyranny of sartorial judgements and verdicts to empower freedom and self-expression.
The garments are self-evident, speaking and leading the Woman to unforced stylings as well as offering choice and versatility. The palette is urban, confidently exploring color blocking.
Coordinated monochromatic looks that range from understated hues to bold colors. No hesitation or second thoughts. Exploiting the brand’s experience and passion for tailoring, the collection is smoothly assembling sophisticated, deconstructed styles to simple, comfortable suits.
The print of the collection is the result of a collaboration with an artist based in Antwerp and born in Brastislava, Juraj Straka. Having grown up in Slovakia, it was an obvious choice for Nehera to collaborate with him. Having already collaborated for Schiaparelli and Dries van Noten, he comes this season to deliver his knowledge to the house Nehera. He digitalizes his painting to create a powerful pattern.
With SS23, NEHERA makes a statement that high fashion doesn’t need to be mentally exhausting, it can be easygoing yet elegant, simple yet erudite.

For NYFW SS23, 360 MAGAZINE decided to emphasize emerging brands which showcase innovation. Many of which are owned and operated by marginalized and/or disadvantaged enterprisers.
This year IMG curated an informative yet immersive activation, GLAM SLAM. It’s intended to offer invited Chase Sapphire card members, VIPs and special guests a curated conversation about fashion in sports, phygital sectors and diversity in the industry. Thus far, it’s been the most insightful engagement for a myriad of reasons. One, it’s an opportunity for you to gain an intimate interaction from relevant professionals while sipping on crafted cocktails. Two, you’re being introduced to viable entities across various sectors. Three, it’s the inaugural program so there’s a ton of surprises.
Over the weekend, GLAM SLAM continued with Session 5 featuring a Sweat Session with Venus WilliamsandKira Stokes, a #CoachVenus Q&A, plus an Eleven by Venus Williams Pop-up.
Rosario Dawsonstopped by La Bodega Baque – a curated bodega experience that celebrates the unstoppable spirit of the Latinx community and entrepreneurs with a curated collection by one of streetwear’s most significant voices and philanthropist, Angelo Baque and presented by UPS and AWAKE NY.

BruceGlen was the crowd favorite. Their psychedelic colorways intertwined with geometric shapes will forever stain our brain like the popular Saturday morning cartoon, Scooby-Doo.
Parsons graduate, Terry Singh, has a big buzz surrounding his avant designs. If you’re into pushing the envelope and bending gender rules, check out Singh on our latest 360 MAG podcast HERE.
David BenDavid executed a hip pop up in Times Square with one of the most talked-about runway shows. Female Rapper/Actress Remi Ma raised the bar as her newly introduced signature walk went viral on TikTok.
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.
New York Bridal Fashion Week (NYBFW) has continuously highlighted the crème of the crop in the world of designer bridal twice for wedding fanatics. With two dedicated weeks of bridal fashion occurring in April and October each year, this April we’ve been dazzled by a few of the new collections showcased at NYBFW.
Let’s recap some our most beloved collections that debuted this season.
Sheila Frank SS23 – Victorian Modernism
Through her new collection, Sheila Frank blends modern femininity with a historical point of view. Conservative styles were adorned with contemporary fads that made for a beautiful fusion of two periods of time through design.
Entitled ‘Victorian Modernism,’ the collection shares elements from both the Victorian and modern era. Shown impeccably through the styling, an era known for the industrial power advancements of the British Empire, we see these elements of the Victorian age vividly in the collection. Elements of structuring from previously conventional work wear are shown through the sharp lines and masculine aspects of Frank’s work.
Through the combination of the two time periods, we also see apparent components of fresh fashions in the collection. From the feminine features of gleaming fabrics to innovative beading techniques, ‘Victorian Modernism’ provides a seamless fusion of the two times. Modern styling approaches, too, transform the bridal pieces to a 21st century point of view.
In terms of her inspiration point, Frank stated that, “This season I exploredVictorian Menswear from pre-Victorian 1830s to late 1890s. Each look is designed with a garment in mind from the frock coat, waist coat, shirt variations to the cravat. Fabrics include matte and shiny satin, crepe, tulle, and beaded mesh. Gowns are adorned with bronze and gold buttons and styled with pressed flower pendant necklaces and belts. I explored the idea of vintage meets modern with clean lines and pleated fabrics that flatter the female form.”
Justin Alexander and Savannah Miller SS23 – Love in A Mist
Just in time for wedding season, post a hard reset on large celebrations, Justin Alexander Warshaw in collaboration with Savannah Miller resurge with their new SS23 collections of timeless Bridal fashion.

Rooted in humble beginnings with T&G (Thanks & Goodluck) Veils, an accessory company now empire at the hands of meticulous business of the budding mogul. A sequel to the family-owned business, the Justin Alexander brand is a pioneer in design, manufacturing including distribution. Expanding their portfolio with Adore x JA, Lillian West, Sincerity Bridal, Viktor&Rolf Mariage and now Savannah Miller Bridal founded in 2016.

The luxury reception themed event showcased wedding dresses of both Justin & Savannah. The befitting return to NYC by Miller who decodes romance and elegance through her understated designs. Each garb overflows with personality, not to mention love which Savannah trusts prevailed within the last two years. A collection befitting of its title ‘Love in A Mist’, inclusively curating her brand with detailing inspired by her tenure at Alexander McQueen.
Armon, Creative Director for 360 Magazine met with the designers for a ‘No No-sense Conversation’ where they shared advice and candidly shared each will be preparing for their own nuptials in the coming future. When asked, what inspires them and why Bridal? Justin shares “It’s nothing better when a bride lights up when she found the dress or enters walking down the aisle with everyone in awe.” Miller goes on to say, “As a woman, you know when it’s right and how it feels on your body,” encouraging liberation. One thing they both agreed on is the significance of what a moment such as a wedding means. Therefore, having positive influences involved in your overall process.
Dana Harel SS23 – Acqua
Designed with rich inspiration points of past-time Europeans with an added Mediterranean taste, Dana Harel’s new ‘Acqua’ collection utters elegant chic. The SS23 collection was created to commemorate all things life, creativity and freedom while incorporating elements of the energy from our beloved oceans. Each piece of ‘Acqua’ resembles pieces that modern princesses would adorn during their wedding days.
The collection effortlessly showcases distinctions between western and eastern cultures through the varying designs.

Whether the bride to be is in search of a sexy, simple look or a more conservative, luxurious piece, ‘Acqua’ has all the components to make you feel like a new-day princess.
Pictured below are the Vittoria and Nicola dresses. The Vittoria elevates a modern design with a classic European cut. Dripping in the finest sequin/crystal fabric, the Vittoria is a sexy take on the contemporary, romantic essence of the 21st century. The Nicola takes on a more moderate fabric with Italian double satin. Also showcasing a slit like the Vittoria, the Nicola sports a gathering affect that reminds us of the rifts and waves in the ocean.
The Atelier Couture SS23 – Shakespeare in Love
The Bridal by The Atelier Couture transports us all the way back to the Elizabethan Era when British theatre was at its peak with their new collection ‘Shakespeare in Love.’ Distinctly crafted with bold Avant-Garde visions reminiscent of gowns that were sported in Shakespeare’s plays, The Atelier Couture captivates us with a new bridal take on classic Europeans drama.
Ball gowns adorned with extravagant beading and lacing; the ‘Shakespeare in Love’ collection encapsulates the essence of Shakespeare’s work. Each gown tells its own story through shifting necklines, silhouettes and train lengths. Mostly consisting of over the top, out of this world fluffy ball gown silhouettes, The Atelier Couture’s latest bridal collection looks as if it would be worn by the Queen of England on her wedding day.
The romantic essence of the collection references old-school fairytale silhouettes. The contents of this collection are elaborate and poetic, similar to Shakespeare’s plays. Renowned as one of the greatest writers in the English language, ‘Shakespeare in Love’ lives up to this accolade.

Sophie Et Voilà SS22 – Cristóbal
Individualism and philosophy blend together to create the meaning behind Sophie Et Voilà’s 2022 Cristóbal collection. A women-founded and ran company, Sophie Et Voilà prides themselves on their commitment to sustainability. Focused on handcrafting pieces for their clientele, each piece is unique and distinct. The theme of their brand follows that of their new collection, Cristóbal.
Standing alone and not conforming to the modern trends was one of the key elements of the Cristóbal collection for Sophie Et Voilà. Inspired by the ways that we think, the ways that we choose to learn and live past our mistakes throughout life, came Cristóbal. Each piece from the collection takes on their own name, one and only one. With classical structures, sleek lines and advanced styles, Cristóbal embodies potency and independence.
Regarding the collection, they stated, “At Sophie Et Voilà we never wanted to be commercial. We never thought about being others. Being different was never our goal. Doing something different has been the consequence of opting for doing things our own way. In a world where adaptation is everything, being true to oneself is a luxury that very few can afford.”
