New York Fashion Week has wrapped up, leaving us with plenty of looks that will be hard to forget.
From Sept. 5 to 14, designers showcased their spring 2019 collections. There were tons of ruffles on the runways at
Marc Jacobs and Rodarte, which made its return to New York after showing in Paris, an extra-large graduation cap and some sequined balaclavas that made models look like creatures from the black lagoon.
Below, check out some of the most over-the-top looks we saw on the runways. They bring
extra to a whole new level: Windowsen Designer Sensen Lii of Windowsen was inspired by aliens and monsters (and maybe Gucci?) for his show (part of the VFIles presentation) on Sept. 5 in Brooklyn. Windowsen This show-stopping yellow number had all the heads turning. Windowsen This look was more loofah than alien, but who says aliens can't also look like loofahs? Windowsen This closing look definitely brought the drama. Shuting Qiu Shuting Qiu, another designer who showed her collection at the VFiles event, accessorized outfits with surreal sculptural head pieces. Shuting Qiu Qiu definitely wasn't afraid to play with patterns for this collection. Vaquera According to the Vaquera show, which took place on Sept. 11, mortarboards (a.k.a. graduation caps) of epic proportions are an it accessory for spring 2019. Marc Jacobs The Marc Jacobs show took ruffles to new heights, or should we say to new volumes? Marc Jacobs The designer also went bold with this bright feathered coat. Marc Jacobs The sparkly, ruffled dress is pretty much the definition of extra, and we don't hate it. Yufei Liu at RISD This coat by designer Yufei Liu (from the Rhode Island School of Design) definitely falls squarely into the "oversized" trend box and it's anything but basic. Maya Ortiz Saucedo at RISD You definitely wouldn't want to be standing next to the person wearing this ensemble at a party. Rodarte Rodarte's return to NYFW on Sept. 9 was full of pink tulle, ruffles and flowers. Gypsy Sport Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon made her NYFW debut walking for Gypsy Sport in this seashell bra and shredded jeans ensemble. Gypsy Sport Another leafy look from the Gypsy Sport show. Kota Okuda Designer Kota Okuda sent models down the runway in looks like this one, meant to redefine American currency " by commodifying its value in an alchemistic system of dress” on Sept. 7.
