Blurred Lines: Helen Anthony Presents Its First Official Gender-Neutral New York Fashion Week Collection

Designer Naeem Anthony started creating his own designs to fill a void, in turn, he created a style bible for those who shared his taste in style and design.  His designs filled the absence of designs that align with his own taste and eclectic style in the fashion world.

Anthony created his own fashion label and named his label after the women who inspired him the most, his grandmother, Helen Anthony.  After the success and overwhelming response of their two Menswear collections at Milan Fashion Week, the high-end luxury British brand, Helen Anthony, returned to the runway in New York City and presented a New York Fashion Week collection that blurred the lines between Menswear and Womenswear.

A work of art in itself, the highly texturized fabrics made an eye-catching statement of luxury. A kaleidoscope of bold patterns also dominated the runway, nearly present in every single piece. Exquisitely tailored coats and suits were the highlight of the show, demonstrating its perfect fit for both men and women. The collection was full of interesting juxtapositions, the deconstruction and reconstruction element to some of the pieces gave the collection a futuristic vibe, while others pieces seemed almost inspired by the 18th century with a bohemian flair.
