FASHION WEEK: Lavuk Fashion Show

Posted by Samantha Chin |

New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and on Tuesday NYCRD attended the Lavuk show, held at the Metropolitan Pavillion. What makes the Lavuk different from a lot of shows going on right now is that Lavuk is an eco-friendly label. The clothes are made in Los Angeles, sweatshop-free and with sustainable materials. Even better, for every Lavuk garment that is purchased, a tree is planted! Fashionable and eco-friendly.

Before the show started, guests were invited to walk around the event space to check out some things from the various sponsors. There were complimentary Balance water bottles, Holistics drinks, Luna bars, and much more, including falafel.

After about ten-fifteen minutes, we were told to find seats and prepare for the show. I lucked out and got a front row seat, towards the end of the runway. The lights dimmed, then went on again as music started to play. The clothes were amazing.

All the pieces were wearable, making me want to snatch the outfits right off of the models and leave. There were great jumpers, rompers, skirts, and a beautiful maxidress. The designer, Natasha Gindin, is incredibly talented and put on a great display. After the show, we were lucky enough to get a tote bag by RuMe, one of the sponsors.
