Maison Cyma, F/W 2016-2017

While in NY for Fall/Winter 2016-17 Fashion Week, I attended the show for Maison Cyma at the Affinia Manhattan on 7th Avenue. I found the collection to be romantic yet very urban, and the Montreal-based designers, Cynthia Girard and Mary-Jo Dorval, showed their skills at mixing textures. Most looks were black on black, with some browns and white, and many pieces incorporated fur. Fear not, PETA, it was all recycled, and detachable as well, so the garments could be worn without the fuzzy accents. They also did some interesting things with layered pockets, which of course works nicely on the typical rail-thin model, but maybe not so much on curvier figures.

Maison Cyma also uses fish leather (made from perch and salmon skins) in their designs.

Check out the video below to see all of their hard work.
