Fashion Week: A Year in the Life of the Whitney Allysyn Woman

Fashion Week: A Year in the Life of the Whitney Allysyn Woman

When Whitney Allysyn debuted our capsule collection aptly named "From Work to Weekend, and Everything in Between," on the runway at Harlem Fashion Week in September 2023, the concept was to show a year in the life of the WA woman. 

Our main goal was to show the world that tall women can move through this unpredictable world in classic styles with a city-chic flair, without the typical insecurities we have (high water pants, wrist-grazing sleeves, etc). Tall women need not settle for mainstream sizing, and I'm so excited to be among the growing list of designers that are willing to break the mold and solve a problem that tall women from Julia Child to Naomi Campbell have had.

Watch: Here, I recap each look of the show, discussing the inspiration and functionality of the pieces.

Displaying 8 versions of her style and the various events she might attend or be the star of, our girl is stepping out in style wherever she goes.

Meet the ladies:

Whitney Allysyn Fall/Winter Capsule Collection

The Socialite

She's got places to go and people to see! Our colorblocked, oversized capsule blouse paired with the vegan leather capsule skirt is the perfect look for stepping out on the town.

The Boss

She's not just going to work, she's running the meetings and making decisions. In our tailored, vegan leather capsule blazer, matching pants and button down blouse, getting dressed was the easiest choice of her day.

The Street Stunner

She's giving "City Vibes" in our vegan leather capsule jumpsuit. Whether navigating the concrete jungle in heels or sneakers, this off the shoulder look will turn heads for all the right reasons.

Wonder Woman

Nothing is hotter than a woman in red. Our vegan leather capsule suit - fitted blazer and faux wrap pencil skirt - is the proper mix of professional and sexy.

Brunching Babe

Inspired by 1950s style mavens, our figure hugging capsule dress details is designed for the modern woman. Front zip? Check. Pockets. Check check! Perfect for all seasons, cover your arms with a bodysuit or blouse for an extra layer.

Whitney Allysyn Spring/Summer Capsule Collection

The Bohemian Chic Artist

Spring allows us to shed layers and opt for lighter fabrics. These linen capsule pants and matching top offer a classically cool ensemble for visiting your favorite museum or walking among the cherry blossoms.

Diner en Blanc

With the annual white parties on her calendar, our woman doesn't have time to pick out pieces. In our linen capsule jumpsuit, she's out the door in minutes.

Courthouse Bride

Around here, we tend to throw tradition out the window. Our woman is getting married this year, and wants to skip the fussy gown. In our linen capsule blazer and matching skirt, she's saying "I do" in style and comfort.

Where will you wear Whitney Allysyn? Wherever you go, you'll turn heads from work to weekend, and everything in between.
