Wes Gordon’s NYFW Diary
In the leadup to New York fashion week, designers go through hundreds of behind-the-scenes preparations to arrive at the completed show. This NYFW, we’ve sweet-talked a few of them into giving us an exclusive peek behind the curtain as they cast, score, style, and ready their presentations. Up next: Wes Gordon.
“This is our mood board for the season—I’m always collecting images that inspire me. My goal is to define ‘our woman’ for the season. Who she is and what is the life she leads? We then try to design for her wardrobe.”
“In need of a haircut, sleep, and Red Bull detox.”
“At least when we have a mess in the office it usually consists of beautiful ingredients!”
“‘Darkly ethereal’ is one of my inspirations this season. The time and work that has gone into this piece is really incredible.”
“This collection is our third season collaborating with Manolo Blahnik. I’m so excited about these shoes—they look amazing with every outfit.”
