A Détacher

For fall 2017, A Détacher designer Mona Kowalska continued the "self management" theme she explored the past two seasons — and her tradition of penning her own intriguing show notes. (Personal fave: "Sasha grew tired of his mansplaining.") The self help theme (especially apropos these days) was represented through distinct structure and defined lines softened with vintage floral prints and soft, soothing knit textures. Like our constant mix of emotions these days, the styling featured combinations of seemingly disparate textures, silhouettes and prints that in reality work together — like the "Reagan couldn't get warm," which actually seems very warm. —Fawnia Soo Hoo

There's not a word strong enough for Alejandra Alonso Rojas's fall collection, except maybe — maybe — "exquisite." This being only her second range from her namesake angle, the pieces felt new and fresh, with delightfully rich color palettes in plums, mossy greens and dove grays and a mix of fabrics like velvet, suede and silk. But the crème de la crème of this particular collection was this crocheted halter gown, which Rojas herself knit by hand. —Maura Brannigan 

Christian Siriano

Christian Siriano's productions are always a highlight in my NYFW schedule, and this season, he truly outdid himself. He adopted an '80s-esque, uber-glam theme with a backdrop — The Plaza Hotel — to match. This metallic (!) jumpsuit with a train was my favorite of the bunch; I loved the slight zip at the waist and billowing wide legs. —Maura Brannigan

Creatures of the Wind

Although this look didn't include the latex socks that I thought the most interesting element of Creatures of the Wind's fall collection, the weird billowy asymmetry of this dress — like origami gone wrong — won me over. —Whitney Bauck

Lacoste

Lacoste's Felipe Oliveira Baptista adopted a sporty, wearable space theme for its ready-to-wear show on Saturday — and you guys know how I feel about space. (I F—CKING LOVE IT.) Anyway, this oversize track jacket was cool. I loved the size, colors and the styling. And you can never go wrong with ankle boots. —Maura Brannigan

Romeo Hunte

Romeo Hunte's designs have been spotted on Beyoncé, Zendaya and football player Victor Cruz and his seventh season of womenswear — and second small capsule for men — continue his streetwear-meets-street style #aesthetic. The FIT alum's outerwear game stood out amongst the buffalo plaids, bold color-blocking, asymmetrical draping and strategic slashes and sheer panels, especially this convertible shearling lined red puffer. —Fawnia Soo Hoo

Ryan Roche

Ryan Roche, beloved for her lush cashmeres and delicate eveningwear, expanded into tailored design territory with a strong-shouldered suit jacket and matching, wide-legged pants. Her expertise in creating clothes made from luxe fabrics still remains strong, this time in a rich, buttery suede. —Maria Bobila

Self-Portrait

Self-Portrait's debut runway show had plenty of looks that (with a lot of tailoring for my petite frame) I'd happily wear off the runway. However, none brought more of a smile to my face than this cerulean velvet jacket-and-shorts combo. Paired with a barely there lace top, it's sexy in an not-trying-too-hard kind of way, and I also love the look of the ribboned cuffs peeking out of the jacket's sleeves. —Karina Hoshikawa

Designer Chris Gelinas's included Braille with his show notes to introduce a fall collection filled with standout texture, like this black-and-navy coat and matching skirt, along with rose-gold bauble earrings heavily adorned with fringe. With these extra tactile details, you observe the piece a little longer and appreciate the craftsmanship even more. Isn't that great? —Maria Bobila

Jonathan Simkhai

To be honest, I am a bit apprehensive about the late '90s/early '00s blinged-out and bedazzled trend that seems to be emerging for fall. However, this oversize, distressed, dark-wash denim jacket at Jonathan Simkhai is a statement piece I can get on board with. Serious bonus points for the berry lip and sexy thigh-high boots, too. —Alyssa Vingan Klein

There are two things you can always count on Rebecca Taylor absolutely nailing: Floral prints and ruffles. Her Fall 2017 collection is full of her staples, scattered across velvet dresses and blush-khaki trench coats alike. But I can't resist a good cat sweater, and this intarsia knit was a cute throwback to Rebecca Taylor's first logo. Meow! —Tyler McCall

Hitting the reset button on her brand was perhaps Alejandra Alonso Rojas's smartest move to date. Paring back her designs to sleek, sophisticated silhouettes in whisper-thin leathers and custom cashmere weaves allows her talent to truly shine. Her Fall 2017 collection includes a hand-crocheted gown, paneled suede midi-skirts and a gorgeous printed silk based on a watercolor Rojas did inspired by her dog, Latte. These are clothes for an incredibly chic woman, much like Rojas herself. —Tyler McCall

I truly can't remember the last time a runway show made me smile as hard as I did at Christian Siriano's Fall 2017 runway. Once again, Siriano knocked it out of the park with a cast of models that was so wonderfully diverse it made my heart grow three sizes. The clothes were, of course, also beautiful, with plenty of red carpet-ready gowns and separates. This dress, worn by Iskra Lawrence, was one of my favorites: it photographs a deep orange, but looked rosy pink on the runway and the plush velvet hugged all the right places. Plus, how refreshing to see a model who looks like yourself on the runway! —Tyler McCall

Aussie designer Dion Lee has a knack for designing sportswear that's cool and sexy, no easy feat. For Fall 2017, Lee took military style — epaulets, bright oranges, deep olives — and put a new twist on it by rendering it in velvets and chubby furs with oversize buckles. This dress, which looks black but was actually dark green, was surprisingly sexy thanks to a long slit up the front and sporty lacing up the chest. —Tyler McCall
