New York Fashion Week Saw Top Designers Draw on Rave Culture [VIDEO]
The September New York Fashion Week took over the Big Apple last week, and the nostalgia was strong. 90s rave culture proved to be a prominent theme.
Despite accusations of cultural appropriation for his dreadlocked models, Marc Jacob's rave-inspired SS17 collection was met with critical acclaim.
Acid house music served as the soundtrack to Marc Jacob's show as celebrity models like Gigi & Bella Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Adriana Lima showed off 8-inch platforms, hot pants, ruffled miniskirts and dreadlocks.
Morecco and Goddard were among some of the other designers who played with rave trends like neon palettes and ruffled crop tops.
The 2016 Spring/Summer New York Fashion Week wasn't the first time rave culture made a revival on the runway. Rave wear has popped up at previous fashion week thanks to industry leaders like Alexander Wang and Jeremy Scott.
