DUBAI: Dutch-Moroccan-Egyptian model Imaan Hammam pulled off a jam-packed schedule at New York Fashion Week, which wraps up on Sunday.
The model walked in a number of shows, including hitting the runway for designer Peter Dundas, Moschino and Michael Kors.
Late last week, the 24-year-old catwalker showed off multiple looks during a showcase of Dundas and online fashion retailer Revolve’s new collaboration. The show featured 46 ready-to-wear looks, with Hammam showing off a floor-grazing gold lame dress with cut out details and braided rope accents, as well as a jet-black ensemble with a flowing poncho and lace tights.
Oslo-born Dundas, who was previously at Italian fashion houses Roberto Cavalli and Emilio Pucci, offered up a line of slinky dresses, chunky knits, high-waisted shorts and jackets with lots of black and metallic colors. There were also dabs of hot pink, red and orange on trouser suits and frocks, Reuters reported.
New York Fashion Week saw a return to in-person catwalk shows after 18 months due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the last two seasons, designers turned to digital video releases to present their collections.
Next up, Hammam got more colorful at designer Jeremy Scott’s Moschino show and slipped into his collection of bright baby blues, pastel pinks, greens, purples and brilliant yellows — fitting for a line inspired by children’s toys and cartoon animals.
The model strutted down the runway in a body-hugging gown with a large rabbit cartoon figure emblazoned across the torso — its ears cascading off the bodice.
The dozens of outfits to come hewed to the same concept — women in baby-themed dresses and suits, adorned with safety-pin earrings or teething rings, with whimsical matching handbags and gloves. There were glasses with heart-shaped lenses and slouchy belts that looked like giant little-girl charm bracelets.
Love and romance were the dreamy threads that bound together Michael Kors’ Spring/Summer 2022 collection, presented in Central Park on Friday.
Hammam showed off a slinky, leopard print number, which was belted at the waist and accessorized with a cylindrical black bag. The look harkened back to the 1990s with his deep neckline and figure-hugging cut.
“I think everyone just wants to feel good about themselves, wants to have fun, and also wants to buy something that makes them feel great but lasts, something that stands the test of time,” Kors said in a statement about his new line, according to The Associated Press.
