NYFW isn't all glitz and glamour, and getting into the Namilia show was definitely no picnic. We got there early, and the show started very late, so we ended up standing in line for over an hour. The location was also basically a sauna - the combination of bodies, lights, and chaos created an abnormal heat that sat heavily throughout the entire venue.
Despite all this, we waited, because from what I'd seen of this designer previously, it would also be worth it. And boy, was it worth it!
I didn't know what to expect, but I definitely never expected Trumpocalypse shirts or penis-strap halters, puffer jacket gowns or race car wings. This was the most out-there presentation I saw during my whole trip, and I loved every second of it!
As each design that came out was more outlandish that the previous, I thought maybe I was hallucinating from heatstroke - but I wasn't. It was all real. See the proof below!
