StyleWeek Northeast Season 11 Runway Show Finale Mashup Video
We put together a video showcasing nine designers’ finale shows, including the sold out opening and closing nights.
StyleWeek Northeast Season 11 was a resounding success in the new venue, the Ballroom at Providence G. The simple, contemporary white background with historical detailing and crystal chandeliers was the perfect backdrop for runway shows featuring emerging and established regional designers. Every evening of the five-night showcase featured the collections of three designers, and each had his or her own creative vision that was executed flawlessly from the clothing craftsmanship and hair and makeup choices to the music and the management.
We put together a video showcasing nine designers’ finale shows. The video includes opening night with shows by DeBricchio by Antwan Byrd, Chaz Aracil’s collaboration on rubber textile with RISD artist Zoe Lohmann, and Samuel Vartan; Thursday night’s shows included Chikke by Angelica Timas, Yellow Clover by Sarah Prost and Carissa Lynne Designs by Carissa Lynne Frazier. Finally, closing night’s sold-out event spotlighted Stetkiewicz by Amy Stetkiewicz, Jess Abernethy, and the avant garde “Project Runway” alum Jonathan Joseph Peters with accessories designed by House of Cach.
DeBricchio by Antwan Byrd: Sexy, short dresses with jaw-dropping cutouts and midriff-bearing tops paired with flowing pants and full-length skirts, for the woman who doesn’t mind showing some skin.
Chaz Aracil: The RISD graduate dreamed up stealth, dark designs punctuated by an aquatic palette and futuristic detailing. The designer collaborated with RISD artist Zoe Lohmann to create the rubber textile shields, collars and skirts that move like things of an amphibious nature.
Samuel Vartan: Red carpet-worthy gowns and form-fitting floor-length maxis, plus shorter, more daring cocktail dresses for the woman with class who exudes confidence.
Chikke By Angelica Timas: Gorgeous maxi gowns and fanciful summer looks that will fit and flatter just about anybody. A cream one-piece jumpsuit with a plunging neckline was jaw-droppingly gorgeous.
Yellow Clover by Sarah Prost: Unlikely pairings of satin and fringe and royal blue metallic with Asian silk made this runway show a stand out. We loved the added touches of parasols and Geisha makeup!
Carissa Lynne Designs: This runway show was like raiding the closet of princess Jasmine from Aladdin, then giving each garment a more contemporary, gilded spin. We could just see Taylor Swift rocking a few of these frocks.
Stetkiewicz by Amy Stetkiewicz: Stetkiewicz mixed it up this season with vibrant lace in shades of pale pink, turquoise, soft yellow and chartreuse in tops, cocktail dresses and some work-friendly wear.
Jess Abernethy: Marie Antoinette meets cotton candy in this show in which guests got to have their cookies and eat them, too. Classic silhouettes like shift dresses, A-line skirts and cigarette pants got an update with satin fabrics in pastel hues.
Jonathan Joseph Peters: Villianous Vixens was the theme for this season’s JJP fashion extravaganza with headpieces, collars and accessories by House of Cach. The show opened with a performance featuring a Madonna lookalike lip-syncing the drag tune “Nails,” then launched into a catwalk takedown featuring the fiercest finale we’ve ever seen.
