Fashionista Angela Simmons has steadily been trying to make a name for herself in fashion. Coming from a famous family does afford her opportunity and access to the necessary resources, but fashion doesn’t give just anyone a golden ticket to industry wide recognition. Everyone has to prove themselves, and that goes double for someone like Angela.
This season the budding designer presented for New York Fashion Week, showing a limited number of pieces. Guillotine style fluorescent colors popped on midi dresses. We definitely see one of Angela’s many celebrity girlfriends like Yandy Smith or Ashanti—who both attended—rocking one of these dresses for a media event.
The collection also included bright, printed swimwear, which may seem odd for a fall 2014 line, but what’s a season to a jetsetter. Biker-style graffiti and pop art print leather jackets were layered over the swim to add an element of edginess.
