For the first time in nearly three years, Tommy Hilfiger and Badgley Mischka presented their new collections in person at New York Fashion Week.
“You know, it’s really exciting to be back in real life fashion shows, real life. You know, interacting with people only by Zoom and FaceTime. It’s much better,” says James Miska, who with Mark Badgley makes up one half of the American design duo Badgley Miska.
A recent trip to Morocco inspired their latest collection, which features evening wear with bold and bright colors seen in spice markets.

“We spent some time there earlier in the summer and connected with some nice sample rooms there that helped us with our collection,” Miska said.
“We often work in neutrals, but for us, eveningwear comes alive when it’s colorful,” Badgley says. “We find that our friends, people, press, whatever, they’re going to remember her and that beautiful tangerine dress.”

Inspiration for Hilfiger’s more casual look comes from the late artist Andy Warhol.
“When I met him in the ’80s he inspired me to, I would say, surround my brand and myself with pop culture and pop culture icons, which he did,” Hilfiger said.
Hilfiger showed designs with the brand’s new logo in the rain at the Skyline Drive-In Theater in Brooklyn, where spectators dressed in plastic ponchos watched. The runway show, which included pop culture stars like Ashley Graham and Lila Moss, daughter of model Kate Moss, ended with drummer Travis Barker performing an exclusive song.
New York Fashion Week ended on Wednesday.
