Irina Shabayeva & Domenico Vacca Fashion Show & Brunch

Prior to attending this event, I was already loving Irina Shabayeva’s SS17 collection as I was able to view it during NYFW. When I received an invitation to attend this show and brunch, I didn’t hesitate to go as I already knew what was in store. Because I didn’t know enough about Domenico Vacca’s collection, I was excited to be enlightened.

With NYFW being split into mens and womens shows, there are only a couple of shows featuring a bit of the opposite sex while showing their collections. When I attend womens shows and see a few male models, it’s usually a bit of a surprise as it’s not always expected.  It’s fun to go to an event knowing that it will be featuring both menswear and womenswear.

Irina’s bridal and formalwear are not to be played with. Created with such intricacy, she infused tulle in long and short dresses; perfect to wear for cocktail parties and even if you want to be the belle of the ball.




She shows that a bride does not have to stick to tulle and lace, as she can also opt for chic feather embellishments.



It’s clear to see that Irina’s focus is to create stand-out pieces.





Domenico Vacca’s suits are created with more subtlety than Irina’s dresses. Although they are subtle, they still feature details alluring to the eyes such as printed and velvet blazers.



His luxury menswear displays a contemporary Italian cut that is always sort after by the stars.


After displaying both collections, brunch was served.


I really love the concept of this event. As an avid bruncher, I appreciate that this was not just a regular show where you go and view a collection then leave. It was a concept of a show and presentation as the models mingled during brunch while wearing the pieces. One can easily feel relaxed while sipping on their signature drink, eating a macaron and getting a closer look at the pieces.

Irina Shabayeva’s collection is currently available at the Domenico Vacca New York store located at 15 W 55 street. Be sure to also check out the current Domenico Vacca menswear collection.

This was truly a taste of luxury.

What do you think of both collections?
