You know that you are solidly out of the COVID-19 pandemic when you start to see a plethora of red-carpet looks in fashion collections. New York Fashion Week’s (NYFW) spring 2024 season demonstrated that the pandemic is behind us and its time to show off glam looks on red carpets or your favorite events and celebrations.

Making his NYFW debut, VERDAVAINNE is a luxury red-carpet and eveningwear brand that is sure to make fashion heads stand up and take notice. The brand features stunningly imagined silhouettes with voluminous skirts that captivate with their architectural structure and graceful movement. The collection also showcases oversized high-contrast patterns that demand attention, and elegant kimono-inspired, trapunto stitched belt detailing that added an exquisite touch of refinement to each ensemble.

The collection also focused on neckline treatments, from alluring halter styles that exuded elegance to romantic off-shoulder designs that offered a touch of provocative sophistication. Bold and strong shoulders were also a commanding statement. A highlight of the presentation was the collection’s finale, a breathtaking wedding gown in chalk white that featured a halter neckline and a self-appliqué sash made of delicate white poppy flower petals, creating an ethereal and romantic masterpiece akin to a moving marble sculpture.

“I wanted to show something glamorous and generous in proportion but with clean, crisp lines. The use of colors was a must for me with the Neon Yellow, the Chartreuse, the Shameless Fuchsia Pink … it’s all about bringing fun to our clients’ wardrobes,” explained creative director Cyril Verdavainne. “With this collection we are going start to the clients. It is no longer about what I want to present as a fashion designer, it is more about my clients and what they want to wear to events and red carpets. I’ve been doing trunk shows for three years, and my customers are complaining that they are having difficulty finding garments that they want. So, with this collection we are creating garments that meet our customers’ needs.”

And this collection does just that. There is something in this spring 2024 collection that is appealing to a wide demographic and fits the needs of women who want that special occasion garment. Cyril Verdavainne also included several plus-size models in this presentation, something that we are seeing less and less of in the spring 2024 collections.
