LaQuan Smith goes all-black to sex up the runway.
The fashion designer paid tribute to his hometown, New York City in his Fall/Winter Collection at New York Fashion Week 2020.
"This is the first time I'm doing an all-black collection.
Why all black?
I don't know.
It felt right, it felt modern, I'm from New York.
Everybody from New York wears black.
And I just wanted to do something super, super relevant in today's time, but also still a level of representation of who I am and that's just creating beautiful things for women who want to feel truly beautiful and sexy," Smith chose a variety of textures and fabrics for his garments; from silky smooth nylon and velvet to hardier leather and furs.
He says he is building his brand and believes it will never be a trend, but a lasting legacy.
