Collina Strada incorporates fierce feminine energy for New York Fashion Week
Designer Hillary Taymour for Collina Strada welcomed showgoers to Collina's Gym at Rockefeller Center for the designer label's Fall Winter 2024 collection during the New York Fashion Week. The line was crafted with deadstock textiles and doused in Taymour's classic, vivid graphics, moulded denim, flannel tops, and hybrid formalwear. However, the show's highlight that got everyone talking was the three models embracing their unabashed femininity on the ramp.
While pregnant model Maddie Moon, in a mint green open shirt dress and lace mini skirt, walked the ramp while displaying her baby bump, another carried a baby in their arms while dressed in a printed floor-length gown. Meanwhile, black, transgender and physically disabled model Aaron Rose Philip owned the runway in a lemon green corset dress with a printed skirt. They even shared snippets from the show with the caption, “What a gift to share space with such incredible models and beings! Every brand should be like you. Your runway is my paradise.”

Talking about the new line, designer Hillary Taymour said in a statement, "With women constantly passed over for power positions, the femme body and mind has long been shaped by the imagination of men,” wrote Taymour in her show notes. “It’s about time we re-sculpted that meat-headed vision into something closer to the reality of femininity."
