Nygard Fashion Show Spring 2017The Highlights
Get the low-down on the bi-annual Nygard fashion show…
Flashing lights, famous faces and stellar designs. What else would you expect from a Nygard runway show? Complimentary drinks and exquisite hors d’oeuvres set the tone for the evening whilst guests waited for the man of the hour to show. Iconic designer Peter Nygard made his grand entrance dressed in a sophisticated blue velvet jacket and tie ensemble and briefly posed for the paparazzi before taking a front row seat at his highly-anticipated Spring 2017 show. Here’s our rundown on the highlights of the evening…
Military is having a moment right now and is big news for spring. Refresh your wardrobe this season with a military-inspired jacket. Our fashion show favourites include the cropped military jacket with statement gold buttons and the nautical double breasted blazer. Opt for classic white and pair with white slims to re-create the catwalk look or try navy paired with lighter denim.
Plaid, plaid and more plaid
Plaid was trending last fall and it’s here to stay for Autumn/Winter 2017 (hurray!). Look out for longer lengths next season with a subtle western-feel or rock-chic vibe. Opt for lighter blue tones and navy during fall, then transition into winter with darker shades such as burgundy, cherry red and monochrome designs. Split hems and ruffles were also spotted and looked great paired with this bold print, adding movement and texture.
Big is beautiful
Nygard is renowned for showcasing plus size models in every single one of its fashion shows, and Spring 2017 was no exception. Our fabulous plus size models strutted their stuff on the runway and showed off their sexy curves in Nygard Slims leggings. Modeling the latest Slims designs (check out our new line of summer capris), our girls rocked it and we couldn’t be prouder! If you’re a curvaceous lady that often struggles to find a wide variety of styles in your size, you’ve come to the right place!

Our highlights wouldn’t be complete without mentioning our #1 selling jean. Luxe Denim featured prominently throughout the show and there are some exciting designs in the pipeline! Expect to see a lot of lighter washes and classic white arriving in stores soon which are perfect for spring-summer, not to mention ombré fading and frayed hemlines. Need more convincing these are about to become your favourite pair of jeans on the planet? If you were lucky enough to get tickets to the show, or you watched our live stream on Facebook (don’t worry, you can still watch the show here!) you would have caught a glimpse of the amazing Momentum Troupe performing their aerial silk routine in Luxe Denim! 4 way stretch just got very real.
Grand finale dress
The show came to a spectacular end with Nygard’s hand-crafted grand finale dress making its way down the runway. Made entirely out of his exclusive Luxe Denim fabric, this haute-couture creation, inspired by the silhouette of an 18th century robe à l’anglaise (think elaborate period drama gowns), truly stole the show. This impressive piece featured a cinched in waist, a corset bodice and a full skirt complete with strategic draping and contrasting stitching. Marie Antoinette…eat your heart out!
