NYFW: JAY GODFREY SS16 PRESENTATION WITH BACKSTAGE AND INTERVIEW




New York-based designer Jay Godfrey’s Spring 2016 Presentation was held Saturday, September 12th at Pier 59 Studios. 

The Spring collection was inspired by the work of the late interior designer and architect David Collins. It pays tribute to Collins’ use of simplicity and architectural lines. “He had a way with white that was very sensual and sexy but very architectural, modern and clean.” Godfrey said when describing Collins work. To me this is exactly what the brand represents, a sexy modern and clean design. 

“It is an entire collection of white looks with women of color modeling.” Godfrey also stated. Which personally is a refreshing thing to see during NYFW. Being multicultural myself, it is very empowering. A trend I hope will and needs to continue in more NYFW shows. 

This collection is perfect for spring. Most of the pieces had cut-out detailing that really flatters the body and adds to the clean modern silhouettes that Godfrey’s brand is known for. Each season I now look forward to his presentations and it always is a highlight for me.
