Before NYFW began, I shot with my friend and designer Mariam Al-Sibai in Downtown Los Angeles for her debut collection. Al-Sibai offered me pieces to wear for NYFW soon after, and I couldn’t refuse! It is thrilling to wear new and upcoming designers, but especially when they are friends you have seen grow in their craft and careers.
My look comprised of a long black trench coat and matching palazzo pants with the most delicate buttons to compliment its oversized, bulky tailoring (so on trend!). Al-Sibai, a Syrian designer, paid homage to her heritage with the Mary x Esme belt bag, modeled after traditional homewares made by artisans in Syria. Made of Teak wood and the ever so stunning mother of pearl, the bag is surprisingly lightweight. The bag is fitted with a leather belt and a red suede pouch inside, also from her collection.
Catch up on NYFW looks from Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3.
