As the Fall 2018 collections make their debut at New York Fashion Week, there’s sure to be plenty of statement-making accessories hitting the runways—from boots to “Pussy Power” bags and beyond.
But at Chromat’s Fall 2018 show, the most unexpected accessory in perhaps all of NYFW history hit the runway: Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Yes, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, the signature snack of Britney Jean Spears.
Redefining the art of pockets, a model walking the show used the bungee cord detailing on a pair of pants to hold a bag of Cheetos as she walked—and snacked—down the runway, as one of course does.
This, my friends, is FASHUN and I am fully here for it.
Another model who didn’t have the luxury of bungee cord pockets simply made do and carried her bag of Cheetos like this season’s hottest clutch.
Aside from the flamin’ hot snacks, however, Chromat also made waves at NYFW with its truly diverse, body positive, and inclusive lineup of models. Along with featuring models of various races and ethnicities, Chromat designer Becca McCharen-Tran also had several plus-size models walk the show.
The message of body positivity and acceptance did not go unnoticed.
Also joining in as a model was Viktoria Modesta, an amputee singer-songwriter who wore a prosthetic leg to walk the show.
From the laid-back vibes of accessorizing with Cheetos and pool noodles to the inclusive casting, Chromat’s Fall 2018 show was a much-needed breath of fresh air and positivity at New York Fashion Week. Here’s to more brands following suit.
