NYFW: Angel Sanchez s/s 2016 Show

My first New York Fashion Week show is in the books! I had the opportunity to see the Angel Sanchez spring/summer 2016 collection, and it was absolutely amazing. I’m not even going to try and play it cool – I was in heaven and so excited I was able to get to see NYFW in person! (I’ll be on cloud nine for a while if you need me.)

I’ll do my best to try and talk designers and fashion with you all. As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m not generally up on the latest trends, and just wear whatever I happen to like. However, you don’t have to have your finger on the pulse of the fashion world to appreciate the beauty of these clothes!

I’m sharing a photo gallery of all the beautiful clothing, plus a video from YouTube of the entire fashion show at the end of the post. However, first, I am going to take you through the experience of what it was like to go to my very first NYFW show!

The entrance of NYFW at Moynihan Station.

The photo above was my first glimpse of NYFW. I was running a bit later than I would’ve liked. (My train ride took a half hour longer than usual. I have no idea how that happens.) So, I didn’t fully enjoy the fact I was able to walk in this grand entrance (doh!). I just rushed up there and gave them my invitation, and then proceeded to stand around inside for about 15 minutes.

We were then allowed to enter The Dock, the area where the Angel Sanchez show was taking place. Most of the people at the show knew each other it seemed..so there was a lot of standing around and talking. I, however, went to find my seat immediately and sat down to people watch.

Waiting for the show to start.

It’s quite the scene to see so many fashionable people in one area! I definitely didn’t feel overdressed for the first time in my life. Haha.

The show was set to start at 1 p.m. However, it started a bit later, which I’m told is quite normal. (Fashionably late perhaps?) Once the lights were dimmed, everyone knew to find their seats, and wait for the music and fashion to start.

Angel Sanchez Spring 2016 show

There were four rows for this show, and I was in the fourth row (which is why there are heads of people in my shots, haha). This was nice for me because I was able to stand up and not obstruct anyone’s view…so, I could snap some photos.

I honestly didn’t go into the Angel Sanchez show thinking I would fully appreciate the beauty of the clothes. For example, I have a hard time seeing the beauty in the new Yeezy Season 2 collection by Kanye West, it confuses me a bit, and I can say that it is probably not something I would be looking for on the shelves this spring (sorry!). But the press is going crazy over that show, so what do I know?

But back to the Angel Sanchez show…I literally wanted to wear every piece that came down that runway! I loved the shapes of the dresses (especially the peplum-like bottoms), and the floral details and bright colors, contrasted by stark white outfits – I absolutely loved it! (Did I sort of sound like I knew what I was talking about? Haha.)

I was also so impressed with the models’ abilities to look incredible the entire time they were on the runway. I don’t think any of them even blinked! (How do they do that?) As someone who has to have her picture taken frequently for this here blog, I am here to tell you that what those models are able to do is pretty cool (especially if you could see the other 99 percent of my photos that don’t get used on the blog. Haha.).

And I’m thinking by now you may be wondering what exactly was I doing there..especially given my limited knowledge of fashion? Well, the lovely Mariana a.k.a. Ms. FABulous was kind enough to invite me along for the show, because we had a little photo shoot planned for afterwards featuring the Machi Footwear heels I wore for the show. I’ll be sharing photos from that, plus my outfit photos of the day, in a separate post. (I have a lot to say about my NYFW outfit.. it’s going to need its own post. Haha.)

Mariana was there to take photos for the Angel Sanchez show (she was actually kind enough to let me use the first photo in this post by her). Mariana is a NYFW extraordinaire and has been bouncing from show to show all week! So, if you want to get some inside peeks into a wide variety of fashion shows, definitely check out her blog Ms. FABulous.

I will end this post with a photo gallery from the Angel Sanchez s/s 2016 show, plus a YouTube video of the show in its entirety (if you’re interested). My next post will feature my NYFW outfit!

I’m curious what do you think of the Angel Sanchez s/s 2016 collection? Let me know in the comments!

    Those outfits are stunning! I love the bright colors and the simple styling. Still so jealous that you went to NYFW! When I was younger, my dad and I used to watch the runway shows on TV, and dream about going to Paris or Milan! (since I grew up on Long Island, we never dreamed about New York! lol)

    I’m hoping to have the opportunity to go to a live show sometime!

      I thought the same thing! I couldn’t imagine attending Paris or Milan – too funny though about New York. Haha. I hope you get the opportunity to attend too! 🙂

    I really like how the clothes flare out and give the dresses such a unique shape. I also really like the kimono style dress because I love kimono style clothing. What a beautiful show with beautiful designs! Thank you for sharing this lovely art with us Lindsey.


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Me too! I love kimono style clothing – so beautiful! The movement of the clothing is the best part.

  3. Looks and sounds like you had an amazing time – so YAY! Loved seeing all your pics and am even more excited about your own outfit and the shoot with Machi Footwear! YOU GO GIRLFRIEND!

      Thank you so much, Amanda! 🙂 I’m looking forward to seeing the Machi Footwear photos, too. Haha.

  4. I’m like you, and don’t really follow fashion and/or trends, and tend to wear what I like regardless of what’s “in”. But it sure seems interesting going to a fashion show, so thank you for sharing your experience with us! You seemed to have had fun!
    About the actual show, there were lots of beautiful colours, so it’s made me think of next spring, and what to wear then. Apparently lots of lovely colours! 😀
    Much love

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thanks, Mona! It sure was interesting! 🙂 I loved all the colors too..Can we just skip winter and go right to spring?

  5. It’s amazing, you went to NYFW, and this collection that you showed here is really fantastic! I think it’s very feminine and elegant and my favorite piece was the white one that is a peplum top and a skirt! I also loved the yellow dress! I wish a great time there and lots of fun!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you, Denise! Those were my favorites too!

  6. Devinne S. says:

    Oh, how incredible!!! I’m like you and don’t really follow fashion that much, but I would be just as thrilled to see a NYFW show! It seems like so much fun; thank you for letting me live vicariously through you!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you, Devinne! It was a blast to see in person! 🙂

  7. Sydney Fashion Hunter says:

    Great post! I would love you to come and add this to my weekly fashion link up if you get a chance!
