Victor Glemaud’s Spring/Summer 2020 pieces paid homage to the eclectic fashion from the ’70s. Drawing inspiration from the designer, Stephen Burrows, the collection features a playful spirit with color-blocking patterns and curve-hugging shapes. “I was connected with him and just wanted to know what inspired him today and what was important to him,” Glemaud told ESSENCE. “That was really an honor. And we just sort of made it contemporary in this way.”
“I am lucky enough that a lot of my friends work in fashion and I don’t want them to be dragged to another show,” Glemaud told ESSENCE.
Much like the collection, Glemaud chose a fun presentation to end the NYFW weekend. Industry insiders, friends, and family gathered around The Sunken Place at Spring Studios with champagned-filled glasses to glimpse at what’s to come for Spring. “I am lucky enough that a lot of my friends work in fashion and I don’t want them to be dragged to another show,” the designer said. “I also want them to remember it, so I do it like this. People can hang and drink and do a whole thing.”
