Oversized Geometry With BCBG Max Azria At NYFW

This is about the presentation of label BCBG Max Azria during New York Fashion Week (NYFW) for Fall/Winter 14.

New York Fashion Week started strongly today with BCBG Max Azria. In spite of the bitter cold and snowy conditions outside, plenty of fashionistas were present for the rendez-vous — some of them even decided to come in stilettos. Franco-Tunisian Max Azria has been in the industry for a while and is constantly reinventing trends. Him and his wife & co-designer, Lubov Azria, unveiled a beautiful collection featuring maxi-dresses, parkas, knee-high boots, fur muff and oversized tee-shirts. Max Azria mentioned, “Being one of the first designers on the runway requires a lot of guts. We always do something that other people are not doing. It’s all about length, geometrics and colors.” The designs were definitely carefully-shaped and oversized, enhancing the feminine silhouette with a masculine feel.
