theGrio Style Guide: Back to Black for NYFW Fall-Winter 2023

by The Grio

Amid the chilly winter air of New York City, things were heating up on the fashion runways as the industry gathered for this season’s New York Fashion Week. As previously reported by the Grio, both veteran and rising Black designers presented their Fall-Winter 2023 collections in showrooms and catwalks across the city. 

As looks were served on the runways, looks were equally served by attendees. This year, Lil Nas X and Teyana Taylor turned heads as they sat front row at LaQuan Smith and Thom Browne’s presentations, each dressed by the designers to reflect this season’s runways. Unlike the extravagant, fantasy-driven silhouettes seen over the past few years, designers are shifting to more sensible, wearable styles this season, reflecting much of the minimalism of the late ’90s and early aughts. After several seasons of whimsical fashion trends filled with bright colors, feathers, and platforms, and escapism from a bleak reality, this season, many designers opted to remix simple, classic cuts and hues to create collections reflecting a stylish return to the otherwise mundane. But don’t get it twisted; as always, Black designers made a statement.


The BruceGlen twins took attendees to church while debuting their collection, “The Sermon.” Grammy-winning Maverick City’s Naomi Raine opened the show with a performance of the song “Order my Steps,” which served as the perfect kickoff to the brand’s vibrant and uniquely crafted showcase.
