Afffair at NYFW

October 22, 2019

I decided to end my New York Fashion Week coverage with my first show of the season.  I had just flown in Thursday evening and only had time to change, grab a snack, and head off for my first show.  This season, I started with Afffair, a collection evening wear, full of glamorous details!


Afffair SS20 NYFW


If this collection is any indication, feathers are going to be BIG for spring 2020!  Also keep an eye out for ruffles and floral appliques. The color palette was full of soft and icy pastels.  It was a beautiful collection and a fab way to start my Spring/Summer 20 fashion week experience!

The Afffair label is the creation of Rufat Ismayil from Azerbaijan.  He started out as a model, but is passion for fashion lead him to move to Istanbul to launch his own label.  Rufat is involved in all areas of the design process at Afffair.  Personally I’m intrigued by his designs and excited to watch his future unfold!

    Hi Dawn,
    I think that first purple feather number would be perfect for our company party! 😉😂
    But seriously, some of these are actually wearable if you had the right event, and so pretty!
    Happy Halloween XO,
