New York Fashion Week 2024 has begun, and the most striking fashion highlights from the countless exhibitions presented by designers have netizens excited for what is to come. One such show was for designer label Collina Strada, known for its self-expressive design language and sustainability. The brand’s creative director, Hillary Taymour, reflected on feminine strength with the Fall/Winter 2024 ‘Stronger’ collection at New York Fashion Week by featuring a pregnant model, a model with a baby in her arms and a transgender and physically disabled model dressed in her creations.
Collina Strada brings fierce feminine energy to New York Fashion Week
Designer Hillary Taymour of Collina Strada welcomed attendees to Collina’s Gym at Rockefeller Center for the designer brand’s Fall Winter 2024 collection during New York Fashion Week. The line was made from deadstock textiles and sprinkled with Taymour’s vivid, classic graphics, molded denim, flannel blouses and hybrid formal wear. However, the highlight of the show that got everyone talking was the three models embracing their sassy femininity on the ramp.
While pregnant model Maddie Moon, wearing a mint green open shirt dress and lace miniskirt, walked the ramp while showing off her baby bump, another carried a baby in her arms while wearing a floor-length printed dress. Meanwhile, black, transgender, physically disabled model Aaron Rose Philip owned the runway in a lime green corset dress with a printed skirt. They even shared fragments of the program with the legend: “What a gift to share space with such incredible models and beings! Every brand should be like you. Your catwalk is my paradise.”

Speaking of the new line, designer Hillary Taymour said in a statement: “With women constantly overlooked for positions of power, women’s bodies and minds have long been shaped by men’s imaginations,” Taymour wrote in his parade notes. “It’s about ‘It’s time to re-sculpt that fleshy vision into something closer to the reality of femininity.’
