Backstage: Kim Shui F/W 18

20180210_nyfwwomen_kimshui_7New York Fashion Week roars on, and while rumors speak of a drastic structural change for the American industry week (who’ve experienced drop-outs by notable names such as Proenza Schouler in recent years), Aw18 is business as usual. New York has always been characterized by its proximity between the fringe and the corporate, and designers navigate the landscape of art, commerce, and play in always inventive ways. Here, our man in the street, Jonas Huckstorf, goes behind the scenes of Kim Shui, the Italian-American designer, cherished by the industry and celebrities alike for her smart interrogation of “good” vs. “bad” taste in the near-history of female dress. Presenting with V-Files in 2016, and sponsored by Vogue Italia, Shui has gone on to dress the it-girls of her generation (including Solange, Cardi B, and Kylie Jenner!) – and presented her latest collection, an outré take on winter power dressing, Saturday noon. 20180210_nyfwwomen_kimshui_6 20180210_nyfwwomen_kimshui_5  20180210_nyfwwomen_kimshui_3 20180210_nyfwwomen_kimshui_1 20180210_nyfwwomen_kimshui_2 20180210_nyfwwomen_kimshui_8x  20180210_nyfwwomen_kimshui_8For more information, see Kim Shui
