New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019 Collections: Anna Sui

Anna Sui calls her Spring/Summer 2019 collection Wanderlust. As the name implies, the themes include travel and exploration. She mentions “I wanted to be transported to another time and place. I make it a point to visit flea markets wherever I travel.”

As part of the creative process for Wanderlust’s vibe, Anna collaborated with Bronx native Jerry Schwartz to bring her concept, Grand Bazaar, to reality.

Anna collaborated with R+Co founder and celebrity stylist, Garren, for her lead hair person who created the vibe “rockabilly meets world traveler.” “These girls are travelers in Wonderland.” “Anna’s show is like you went around the world and started picking things up and shopping in places where they sell old clothes. It’s natural hair but at the end of the day, the girls have that half-up half-down look.”

The next collaboration was with Pat McGrath, as the lead makeup artist, for a no-makeup look that included a holographic highlights twist for most of the models and a subset of outliers who featured a “fantasy look”.
