Date: September 15. Venue: Broad Street Ballroom (NYC)
Chad Leon made his fashion mark in Chicago’s underground club scene, officially launching CLEONS Clothing. Backup dancer Ian McKenzie (from the Haus of Gaga) and seasonal contestants from America’s Next Top Model are all notable clients of CLEONS Clothing. With a proven track record for both Ready-To-Wear and high fashion, Leon wasted no time in bringing his show to New York City’s financial district, introducing super wearable lines in Militaristic Goth, Nautical & Swimwear.
Male models emerged in all-black ensembles, wearing face hoods, harnesses, fitted crop pants and boots. Impressive half-sheer tops, patchwork and buckled embellished pants, hooded and hoodless gilets with zipper and strap detail, and jackets in bondage and popup.
Nautical men’s showcased an amazing yellow shredded vest, tanks and shirts in an array of two and three tone effect, patchwork, logo and graphic detail. Wild card pants included metallic and snakeskin. Jackets styled vests remained ultra cool in leather.
Swimwear was sporty and fun, filled with paint splatter, while womenswear bore all the right signs, with a fierce catsuit, shredded blouses and asymmetrical tops and jackets.
