Cushnie takes center stage for the first time since rebranding at NYFW

For the first time since Ochs stepped out of the picture, Cushnie was center stage at New York Fashion Week to celebrate the designer's Spring/Summer 2019 collection. A season all about diversity, models in all shapes and sizes took the runway in various hues and mediums to debut her highly-anticipated line. And all debuted Maybelline's new Made For All Lipstick called 'Red for Me.'

Designer Carly Cushnie looked to her Caribbean roots as an inspiration for the new season.

"I’m of Jamaican descent. I was born and raised in London," the designer explained in August to the Business of Fashion about her upcoming collection. "I went to school in Paris and New York -- and I’ve spent the last 15 years living in New York now."

"So it’s really infusing this sort of vibrancy into the collection,” she continued.

Coral reds, neon yellows, seafoam greens and nautical blues danced down the catwalk. Here and there, models grasped woven bags and fringes -- and all sported matching bold lips.

Cushnie's dabbling with darker hues -- including blacks, navys and browns -- proves vacation wear can easily become an everyday style staple.

Continuing their partnership after several seasons, Maybelline New York worked with Cushnie to add a philanthropic element to the show. The brands collaborated to bring ten fashion-loving girls from the Lower East Side Girls Club to the show and had them experience NYFW up close.
