Perry Ellis’ Fall/Winter 18 presentation at New York Fashion Week took place in the Hippodrome NYC, once the site of a circus – fitting, as the collection reflected an exploration in colorful patterns and whimsical palettes. Creative Director Michael Maccari went for a wearable, comfortable, forward-thinking vibe, and employed high-profile models for the runway including current Drag Race star Milk (Daniel Donigan).
The show heralded Perry Ellis’ new campaign, Life Ready Since 1976, harkening back to the label’s mission statement of anywhere dressing.
Celebrity guests in attendance included Marc E. Bassy, Elijah Boothe and Steven Kolb. Take a look at backstage photography in the following slides.
