Leave it to Leaf Xia to close out New York Fashion Week in true style!
The young Chinese designer made her way back to New York for a NYFW debut, showcasing her new fall/winter collection during New York Fashion Week: The Shows 2019 at Spring Studios on Wednesday, February 13th.
The presentation, which celebrated the magical journey of Xia and her unforgettable memories during her six years of studying in New York City, featured a vibrant color palette filled with playful prints and mixed patterns that symbolize the joyous energy of city life through foreign eyes.
SO many underlying themes were present in the collection’s mix of colors and prints. With the main theme being Xia’s mantra “Fear Face with Love,” each piece was inspired by her romance with the Big Apple. From her favorite restaurants to adventurous subway escapades, the fall/winter 19 collection speaks of her journey and nostalgia in finding her cultural identity in New York.
In addition to her pieces, Leaf Xia teamed up with Hello Kitty for eight additional looks that also pay homage to her time spent in New York City.
Spoiler Alert: after seeing each look in person, we instantly became obsessed with how bold and beautiful each look was and can’t WAIT until we’re able to get our hands on them.
