Two-spirit joy shines bright at New York Fashion Week as La Loche teacher models for Cree streetwear designer

Prairie Pride is a series by Local Journalism Initiative reporter Julia Peterson that celebrates queer life in rural Saskatchewan.

When Jazz Moise gets dressed in the morning, the world is his runway.

With bright patterns, vibrant sparkles and big, dangly earrings, the La Loche, Sask., substitute teacher finds joy and confidence in his clothing, expressing his creativity and two-spirit identity with every outfit.

Earlier this month, Moise took his love of fashion to a much bigger stage: New York Fashion Week.

“Being on the runway was a thrill,” said Moise. “I had a straight face, of course. I had to look fierce. But right when I stepped on the runway, I saw the crowd, and people were cheering. It was just surreal.”

Moise was one of the models representing Scott Wabano, a two-spirit Indigenous fashion designer whose genderless clothes showcase and celebrate Indigenous LGBTQ2S+ identities.

“I had never imagined myself being a model,” said Moise. “I’ve only ever enjoyed fashion. I love dressing up; I love expressing myself. But seeing that there was an opportunity, I said ‘oh my gosh. This is my shot.'”

Wabano, who is Mushkegowuk from Moose Factory, on the west coast of James Bay, with Eeyou-Eenou family roots from the Quebec Cree Nation of Waskaganish, aims to challenge colonial binaries, like gender terms brought on by early settlers.

For Moise, walking that runway in Wabano’s flowing silk outfit was a chance to represent two-spirit excellence and be the role model he had wanted while growing up in La Loche.

New York Fashion Week 2023: Top Trends and Highlights

Ah, New York Fashion Week. There’s always a bit of camp and theater at the runway shows that preview the next season’s styles, and this year did not disappoint. And while you may not want to go pantless to your next dinner party — one model at Christian Siriano wore sheer black tights over black underwear — there were plenty of more-wearable looks in NYFW’s fall 2023 collections.

From slouchy knits and structured suiting to buttery leather skirts and floor-skimming maxi dresses, the shows offered plenty of ways to breathe new life into your post-COVID, return-to-civilization wardrobe. And don’t worry: You don’t need to be part of the TikTok generation to enjoy the fun. As barrier-breaking 70-year-old model Beverly Johnson, who shut down the Dennis Basso runway in an opulent gold gown and dramatic cape, proves, great style has nothing to do with age.

The trend: Red

The look: At shows like Carolina Herrera, models sashayed down the runway in elegant monochromatic skirt suits. The hue also appeared in cozy knits at Tory Burch, ruffles at PatBO and leather dresses at Proenza Schouler. “Last season, Valentino made fuchsia very popular, and this is sort of the natural evolution of that,” says New York City stylist Ann Caruso. “Red is the new pink.”

Spotted at: Carolina Herrera, Proenza Schouler, Tory Burch, Simkhai, Gabriela Hearst, Christian Siriano, Sandy Liang, PatBO, Kim Shui and Theory

How to wear it: “Wearing red is all about confidence,” says Cindy Weber-Cleary, a New Jersey-based fashion

1. The drugstore hairspray behind the “rosie twist” bun at Christian Siriano

The "rosie twist" (seen here on model Coco Rocha) was the look du jour at the Christian Siriano Fall/Winter 2023 show.

The “rosie twist” (seen here on model Coco Rocha) was the look du jour at the Christian Siriano Fall/Winter 2023 show.

Roses were the romantic muse behind the “rosie twist” bun at the Christian Siriano Fall/Winter 2023 show. “We were inspired by the hand-crafted floral accents found throughout the collection to echo this in the hair by creating a rose-like twist, with a ‘stem’ of hair weaving down the crown of the head, meeting the rose-like bun in the back,” Lacy Redway, Unilever stylist and celebrity hair artist, explained in a statement.

To hold the look in place, Redway leaned on the Tresemmé Freeze Hold Hair Spray. The styling product claims to work on all hair types and textures as a means to prevent frizz and keep hairstyles intact.

Eggs were the bizarre trend at New York Fashion Week

An emerging trend is on the horizon, and we really weren’t egg-specting it. (We’re sorry in advance for the egg puns.)

While New York Fashion Week 2023 highlighted so many new trends you can shop now, as well as street style everyone is wearing, it turns out that eggs might be making their way into our wardrobes. 

Eggs are a staple in most refrigerators. They’re perfect as a breakfast food, as a baking ingredient… the list goes on and on. One thing, however, we never expected eggs to be was fashionable.

A few months ago, we saw a TikTok on the account @nailedbynika of a nail artist creating a 3D egg on an acrylic nail. It was actually pretty cute, in a surrealist, supermarket fashion kind of way. 

This wasn’t a super shocking or questionable design in our opinion, seeing as we’ve seen a myriad of quirky patterns become popular over the last few years – for example, cow print, or even the very controversial emergence of chevron. 

Lisa Says Gah!, a popular, ethical fashion brand that sells their products mainly online, also indulges in selling clothes with fun, food-related patterns. They have a popular white t-shirt called their Dana Long Sleeve with a baguette on it, for example –

Lisa Rinna, 59, slays in barely there corset outfit and thigh-high stockings at London Fashion Week

Lisa Rinna is living her best life out there absolutely slaying yet another fashion week

This time she’s all decked out for London Fashion Week in an age-defying look.

The former Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, 59, shared three snaps of her rocking the Girls Don’t Cry suit from designer Dilara.

The beige jacket has puffy sleeves. She wore it over a sheer white top with corset lacing through her torso. The bell-shaped cuffs peek out from the ends of the jacket’s sleeves.

Lisa – who rocked an edgy look last week at New York Fashion Week – completed the look with sheer, white, thigh-high stockings and white shoes.

Her spiky hair was styled in a punk rock manner and her makeup complemented the earth tones of her outfit. 

This latest stylist look comes the day after she absolutely worked the red carpet at the BAFTAs on Sunday.

The reality television star wore a lacy black slip dress with a low neckline, and black leather knee-high boots. 

The mother-of-two teamed her outfit with a black blazer hanging from her shoulders and sported her signature spiky bob hairstyle. 

Her daughter Amelia Gray Hamlin, 21, walked the red carpet alongside her stunning mother wearing an avant-garde corset dress of black leather.

At another London Fashion Week event, the Melrose Place actress flashed her midriff as she went braless in a sheer sequin top. The beauty paired her top with gold sequined bootcut pants

So, what are we wearing? Subscribe to Reviewed’s weekly Style Check newsletter to get the answers from stylish people.

1. Bold, monochromatic suits at Cynthia Rowley, Gabriela Hearst

Monochromatic suits were shown on runways at Cynthia Rowley and Gabriela Hearst.

Matching sets have been on trend for the last few seasons, but this fall, designers turned to monochromatic suiting to make bold statements out of traditional styles. Instead of a traditional NYFW runway presentation, Cynthia Rowley opted to host a comedy show featuring the talents of stars like Ego Nwodim, Nikki Glaser and Esther Ku, entertaining audiences in monochromatic looks that took our breath away. At Gabriela Hearst, a lemon-yellow men’s suit was a brilliant, striking contrast to the neutrals that were shown elsewhere.

Want to hop on the trend ahead of next fall? Get the look with Bardot’s Parisienne Blazer. Available in a trendy Barbiecore-friendly shade of pink, in women’s sizes 2 to 8, this double-breasted suit is modern, bold and vibrant. Don’t forget to snag the matching Therese Buckle Pant to complete the look.

Cosmopolitan NYFW stylist duo ‘Slays’ their debut fashion show

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is one of the four major fashion weeks in the world, alongside Paris, Milan, and London. This series is fashion’s biggest stage, yet not all fashionably talented designers and stylists have their fair chance to shine at the main shows. 

Cosmopolitan New York Fashion Week (NYFW) held its first fashion show on Sunday, Feb. 12, at Stepping Out Studios Penthouse in midtown Manhattan during New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2023. Cosmopolitan NYFW showcased talented and innovative designers, including various nail/hair/makeup artists. 

Fashion stylists Monique Obeze and Crystal Owens, friends and business partners for more than seven years, are the founders of Cosmopolitan NYFW. “I had a dream when we first started talking about this [five months ago],” said Owens. “I told Monique this show is going to be packed out; it happened…we did it.” 

They combined their companies and created Cosmopolitan NYFW last September. Their many years in the fashion world influenced and encouraged them to create their own fashion show separate from the main New York fashion week shows. 

About 300 people were in attendance at the sold-out show, which exceeded their expectations.

“We did this on a wing and a prayer,” said Obeze. The stylist duo shared their expertise, knowledge, and perspectives they’ve acquired over the years to fuel their fashion creativity. 

Owens was a stylist at numerous fashion shows and envisioned doing things differently at her own show. She expressed her dislike of how her partner, Obeze, was treated during other fashion shows. “I had just produced another person’s show for Fashion Week and there were things Crystal didn’t appreciate that happened to me

Meet The Stylist Behind Ice Spice’s Distinctly New York Looks

Like most people born and raised in New York, Ice Spice doesn’t let us forget it. But she’s not loud about it. You just know based on the music she makes, the way she speaks, and most importantly, what she wears.

Most of us met the 23-year-old rapper via her “Munch (Feelin’ You)” music video. She stood out for her red curls and her understated but sexy outfit that felt very New York (name plate necklace, denim cut-offs, cotton tube top, and white Nike AF1s). But as the song and her persona gained steam, we started to see her wardrobe level up, but still maintain a very New York aesthetic. In the music video “In Ha Mood,” she leaned all the way in, wearing True Religion jeans, two B.B. Simon belts, Jordan 4s, and a white tank top that revealed her red bra. A Twitter user tweeted: “Ice Spice needs a stylist bro, wtf is this??” and she aptly responded: “U wouldn’t get it.”

Since then, Ice Spice has been on a whirlwind of a press run, attending New York Fashion Week and wearing looks from Dion Lee, Tommy Hilfiger, Coach, LaQuan Smith, and Tia Adeola, while still looking completely herself. That’s thanks to Marissa Pelly, who’s been styling Ice Spice for the past couple of weeks.

“I never wanna be the type of stylist that tells someone what to do or tells someone how they should be,” says Pelly. “I think that it’s most fulfilling and most honest and authentic when it’s a collaboration.”

Here, Pelly breaks down how she got the gig, some of Ice Spice’s most recent looks, and what it’s like to work with an artist who’s generating so much attention.

‘The hard work is never over’

Three years before “manifesting” became the new wellness craze in late 2020, Aaron Rose Philip tweeted that when she was finally signed to a modeling agency, it was going to be “OVER for y’all.” And she was right.

Philip, a transgender Antiguan American model who was born with cerebral palsy, has published a book, been profiled by the New York Times and Vogue, was interviewed by her idol Naomi Campbell, starred in multiple high-profile fashion editorials, served as grand marshal for New York City’s 2021 Pride Parade and performed in a Miley Cyrus music video — all before she turned 21.

So, yes, it was over for all of us the second she decided to pursue the fashion industry when she was a junior in high school.

“I am someone who has lived 50 lives in 21 years,” she told In The Know. “I for sure use fashion as an outlet for my own personal happiness and self-expression.”

Philip is now managed by Community New York and Milk Management London and has modeled for almost five years now. But as she continues adding to her already impressive résumé, she is still waiting to see disability be made an equal part of the conversation surrounding the need for more diversity within fashion and beauty.

“I’ve had so many opportunities [in which] the client may revert on their decision to cast me or the job ‘just doesn’t work out’ in general due to them not being able to accommodate my disability,” Philip explained.

Physical impairment is the most common form of disability in the U.S. — affecting one out of every seven adults. Fashion is a profit-driven industry that still fails to create adaptive clothing for a significant portion of the population. In a commercial
