The virtual event will take place on Sunday night.

“I want to be able to communicate the feelings that were made to inspire these organizations.” Designer Jordan Stewart, who helms the brand RVNG, is talking about creating an online event rather than a runway show to launch his next collection. The virtual showcase will be streamed on Sunday, September 13 as part of the upcoming Spring 2021 Fashion Week calendar and will be on the New York Fashion Week website for those who are unable to log in for the 7 pm EST time slot.

Stewart’s fictional work has become a favorite among event-goers and attendees on special occasions; And learning a new way of translating RVNG fantasy — a task that once begged for the dramatic and transporting nature of runway renditions — is one that is brimming with enthusiasm. “Development is part of the program,” she says of the fashion industry, and why it is conducive to meeting the challenges inherent in our new, social-perverse world. “We have to strengthen our axle and axle and reinforce what we are doing.”

Having previously shown during Toronto Fashion Week, Stewart finally felt ready to apply to the NYFW calendar and began the process last year; In early 2020, it was feared that she would bring ready-to-wear and pieces of opportunity to live shows in Manhattan. Of course, those hopes were eventually dashed. “She’s always been in New York,” she says of setting her sites on the NYFW schedule, stating that she looks forward to putting on IRL runway events again when it’s safe to do so . “its [been] A process of earning my stripes — I had enough shows and collections under my belt that could possibly make me a contender for their stage. [Then] All of us had slipped the ground from under our feet. “

She initially feels “inappropriate”, prompting her to post brand-related content on her social feeds, as we all tried to adapt to the uncertainty of the times. Stewart says, “You’re very concerned about people’s health and the economy. A lot of serious things were happening, which were almost offensive to focus on art.” “But there came a point where we knew for sure that we must continue and life should move forward.” Also the play had the long-sought goal for the designer. “I put my whole life into it,” she says of her NYFW debut. “I’m showing after Jason Wu on Opening Day. This is a dream come true. ”Adding viewers of Shraddha to the imminent RVNG event will be the appearance of actress Laura Vandervoort, who will run in a digital show.

Understanding her own role in embodying the beauty of our world — especially on an individual level for each of her clients — Stewart set out to create pieces that spoke for the time. “I preferred to live in optimism,” she says of how the new pieces she told us this weekend will look like. “I call it the Dream Collection because everything we’ve done; It is almost real. We are all off-balance and off-kilter. I have created an optimistic view of fashion and the moment. [It’s about] Coming out of this together. “

In line with this theme of idealism, Stewart used a rainbow-heated palette (although there are no darker colors in the runway collection, customers may choose pieces made in it), and employed textures and a sense of whimsical silhouette increase confidence. “It’s art,” she says of the design role in Desperate Hours. “We want to be inspired.”

He has been able to maintain his sense of positive expectations through watching the parade of the red carpet, most recently appearing at VMAs, as well as still maintaining a roster of customers who are eager for upcoming events. “People are planning for the future,” notes Stewart.

While she admits that fashion lovers will step forward in different and safer ways — Stewart acknowledges that the fast pace of the industry does not necessarily mean that creators need to remain focused and true to their work. “I feel like getting out there and being in the scene, but the real art of fashion making in my world is very slow,” she says of working within the industry, in fact her slim wares and For a client-focused business. “It’s a juxtaposition.” Everything about RVNG is intimacy; One dress and one customer at a time. Those relationships mean the most to me. “
