I’d be lying if I said that I came to New York Fashion Week strictly for the clothes: I came to marvel at the designers who produce them and whom I follow so closely all year long, in real life. So it’s a tough thing to admit that I came to Marc Jacobs (and rearranged my flight to ensure that I indeed
saw Marc Jacobs) and didn’t actually see Marc Jacobs–well the man, I mean. And I’m pretty sure that it’s all because of his cool-guy aversion to the spotlight. More specifically, the final bow a designer makes to acknowledge his audience and thank them for coming.
I’ve come to learn that the way a designer pops out from backstage at the end of his or her show is a pretty good indicator of their personality and how they view themselves within their brand (or really, how much they love/detest basking in said spotlight). Let’s take a look at the various designer bows from Spring 2015 fashion week so far, which also happen to be my favourites, listed in no particular order.
1. Michael Kors: The Victory Lap. Our main man earns the honour for skipping along the runway course (and receiving an kiss blown from front row-seater Heidi Klum).
2. Jason Wu: I’ve learned to love his "Oh, hey, now I’m running away" bow. It’s the designer-wave equivalent of now you see me, now you won’t (until next season, that is).
3. Nanette Lepore:
There was an entire congo line involved in this one. Enough said.
4. Ralph Lauren. So. Much. Lauren. Family. Love. Also, Ralph: thank you for sauntering down the runway so I could capture an Instagram-worthy photo-op. (My followers thank you too.)
5. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen at Elizabeth & James. I’m a millennial and grew up on the Olsen twins. If you are too, you’ve stopped listening are already relishing in the greatness of this moment with me.
