This NYFW, Ladygunn teamed up with legendary footwear brand Steve Madden to curate a collection of #NYFW style diaries. We teamed up with a handful of our favorite influencers, sent them to some of our favorite fashion shows in cute new shoes and asked them to walk us through their experience. Here is the fourth of the series – check out the rest here.

“Sunday evening was such a blast! It was a refreshing experience to attend the Ground Zero presentation as a guest after a few busy days of castings and jobs. I met the designers at the showroom the day before where we picked a dress from their FW15 collection for me to wear to the presentation. It’s a bold piece, which drew attention as I approached the venue. The designers are two very nice brothers Eri and Philip Chu from Hong Kong, presenting their collection at NYFW for the first time. They have shown in Paris in the past. They said the collection was inspired by the things they liked growing up in the 90s – listening to underground music and going against the rules. To me, it is a very contemporary yet kitschy mix of raver and Chinatown punk, while the irregular cuts, some fabrics and striking prints add a level of sophistication.”
