When it comes to fashion design, Alexander Wang is truly an artist. He knows no bounds when it comes to his craft and his collections consistently push the envelope. Wang's Fall/Winter 2016 collection was no different, of course, taking gothic street wear and refining it in such a way that each piece is actually quite fabulous, albeit avant-garde.

Alexander Wang - Runway - Fall 2016 New York Fashion WeekHeavy motorcycle boots were paired with mini skirts and tattoo-esque tights with oversized sweaters bearing a logo that at first glance is reminiscent of the classic Polo Ralph Lauren pony, but is actually a naked female dancer on a pole. Very clever.

The tone of the runway show, which was held at St. Bartholomew's Church, was dark and almost somber, despite accompanying rap music. Every major name in fashion was in attendance, including Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington and Selby Drummond, as well as a few other A-listers like Kylie Jenner and Tyga, Solange Knowles and Taraji P. Henson.

The affable Alexander Wang himself closed his show by running down the center runway, as only he would do, making us wonder, 'how does this happy man design such a lurid line?' He makes it beautiful, is the simple answer, in a way that no other designer can. Hats off to you, Mr. Wang, you've done it again.
