Fashion Week Wrap-Up: Shopbop Fashion Director Kate Ciepluch Shares Her Favorite Moments

Another NYFW has come and gone, leaving a trail of broken heels and Starbucks to-go cups in its wake. We asked Shopbop Fashion Director Kate Ciepluch to share her insights on the week that was.

1. There’s been a lot of talk about fashion having a major reassessment moment. Did you notice anything different about NYFW this year? What was the overall vibe like?
The vibe was very friendly! I think people made a conscious effort to take any severe attitude out of the week by smiling, being helpful, introducing themselves, etc.

2. Was there a show or runway look you loved that isn’t your usual style?
Milly! I'm not usually a girly-girl when it comes to my style but I loved this show. It was punky prep, and she debuted a jewelry collection that consisted of huge chunky gold and silver statement necklaces.

3. Accessory you wanted to grab off the model and start wearing immediately:
Alexander Wang shoes—incredible! The leopard wedges, the knee-high sandals!
