NYFW: a look back at some of Naeemah LaFond's most iconic looks

This season, New York Fashion Week is definitely going to be looking a little different. In lieu of packed venues with a runway, fashion lovers can visit Runway360, a platform that shows live shows and a full schedule of events.

As ode to NYFW's of the past, we're going to throw it back to some amazing shows that amika + Naeemah LaFond, global artistic director, have been involved in.

Christopher John Rogers

Naeemah has worked with Christopher John Rogers for 4 seasons, including the upcoming digital fashion week this month! Born in Louisiana, CJR started in Brooklyn (hi neighbor!) and has now upgraded to a spot in SoHo. As Vogue UK puts it: “What defines a Christopher John Rogers look? A joyful burst of color married with old-school salon sensibility, certainly, but also a commanding sense of self-awareness.”

The pair have worked together to marry clothing and hair as one, bringing in inspirations from topiary art. The two continue to push boundaries in their respective fields. We can’t wait to see what they do for this upcoming digital season!
