Women's Ready to Wear designer, Dan Liu, presented a show-
stopping Fall/Winter 2018 collection to a full house of fashion
insiders at Spring Studios this morning as a part of NYFW:
Liu's fans of his feminine, sophisticated aesthetic packed into the
gallery space awaiting a spectacle as has come to be the norm by
the designer. The spotlights shot on within the dim room, and all
eyes struck the catwalk opening. A pale pink trench coat ensemble
broke the threshold with black leather piping and a model looking
quite sophisticated in sunglasses by Nectar and pulled back hair.
This season's inspiration was all about the strong, independent,
and dangerous woman—a spy. Entitled "The Spy Who Loved Me",
the FW18 runway lit up with beautifully mysterious models
wrapped in Dan Liu's branded headscarves. A piano rendition of
the infamous track from James Bond accompanied the runway
"It's not about James Bond, though; it's about the woman." said the
designer, Dan Liu, backstage.
The collection was a statement of redefinition of the retro style of
the 1960's and 1970's with simple, but unique colors and patterns.
"The Spy Who Loved Me" was a story, both novel & film, popular
during the same time period, which was where the theme and
collection found intersection. The narrative and clothes described
the evolution of women in society to become more independent
