These three fashion experts stood out from all the rest in the Big Apple.
While amazing fashion was everywhere, no one could take their eyes off Memé Biltagi, Charlotte Groeneveld, and Caroline Daur.
After making headlines for the last few consecutive seasons, the founder and Editor-in-Chief of popular fashion and lifestyle magazine Mademoiselle Meme was back in New York City for Fall 2018. Memé first drew accolades in October 2016 for her striking monochrome outfit and graphic House of Nomad top crowned gracefully by a hijab. Since then, she has continuously been in the spotlight for her distinctive take on modest fashion.
An off-the-shoulder trench coat accented with statement fur sleeves and a Saint Laurent mini bag. A sky blue coat teamed with Gucci socks. An exquisite combination of bubblegum pink fur and shiny metallics. These are just three examples of Memé’s luxurious style, which is as tasteful as it is refined.
Caroline Daur is another relatively fresh face on the street style scene. The German blogger has attracted attention the last few seasons for her sharp and often edgy ensembles, which have a knack for being right on-trend. Her followers might be somewhat surprised by Caro’s sartorial choices this season, which appear to have taken a more restrained turn.
While she has incorporated striking colors in the past, Caro has been sticking to monochrome for Fall 2018. Mature and sophisticated, many of these outfits involve high gloss fabrics. And she’s still unafraid to make a big statement, for instance the gigantic puffer coat she topped with a Prada hat.
Charlotte Groeneveld is a familiar face, but she nevertheless managed to reinvent herself this New York Fashion Week, and deserves special recognition for that feat. The Dutch blogger behind TheFashionGuitar and thyroid cancer survivor put together one breathtaking outfit after another this season.
At one point appearing in the leather-jacket-worn-over-a-dress look that she has as good as patented, Charlotte also demonstrated her affinity for fine coats in more unexpected ways. She tried on trendy shaggy shearling and at one point a supremely fluffy white fur coat anchored by Balenciaga’s shapely new sneakers. Both heavy and floaty at the same time, her Ralph Lauren design of midnight blue feathers was a particular highlight. — jas
