NYFW: Toure’s Design F/W 13

Fashion week has ended with somewhat of a bittersweet ending; bitter because I am going to miss all the excitement, sweet because I am tired!

Of course I had to attend one last show yesterday. Alhassan Toure, fashion designer to the stars (especially in the Hip-Hop/R&B world), presented his Toure’s Design F/W 13 men & women collection at the Limelight Shops. Titled, “The Evolution”, this show brought out stars, such as rappers Waka Flocka and Maino, model Jessica White, and Hip-Hop guru/mogul Russell Simmons. The Ghanaian designer really brought the heat with this collection. Lots of different patterns and edgy designs, including fur, snake skin, and studding details; you can definitely see the Euro-Jap inspiration in his designs. The crowd seemed very pleased with the line, as he received a standing ovation from the packed place.  I can definitely see some trendsetters rocking his line!
