NEW YORK, NY (February 13TH, 2015) – Designer Rebecca Minkoff debuted her Fall 2015 Collection on the runway in The Pavilion at Lincoln Center with a notable front row and live performance by the electronic duo, Marian Hill.
Fall 2015 COLLECTION INSPIRATION
Fall draws its inspiration from Patti Smith and her evocative memoir “Just Kids” that document her mystical relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe while painting a vivid portrait of bohemian New York in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s as they forged their artistic identities.
The collection is influenced by Smith’s own androgynous, rock-inspired style while also referencing her brush with icons like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Grace Slick during her tenancy at the Chelsea Hotel. Guitar strap inspired embroideries, studded leather jackets and pants, mixed prints, military denim, rich velvet, engineered studding, and flowy chiffon dresses recall that rhapsody in a modern way, informed by the current indie rock style renaissance.

Rebecca Minkoff gave fans who tuned into her livestream via RebeccaMinkoff.com and at the brand’s livestreaming viewing parties in San Francisco and New York City a special behind the scenes look at her runway show. Rebecca Minkoff teamed up with GoPro for her Fall 2015 runway show. The brand used GoPro cameras to capture content from a first person perspective. There were three cameras at the show filming different looks at the show: “Front Row Cam” showcasing a front row guest and style blogger, Sara Escudero of Collage Vintage’s POV, “Band Cam” which will be mounted to the show’s musical guest, and “Rebecca Cam” which followed Rebecca before and during the show. The GoPro footage was displayed as a picture in picture during the live stream giving viewers a true perspective of her runway show.
With a vision of building a lifestyle brand for the downtown romantic, San Diego-born designer Rebecca Minkoff founded her company in 2001 after she developed a small apparel line. She spent the next few years working on the small collection until 2005 when Rebecca developed the “Morning After Bag”. The bag became an overnight sensation and Rebecca began solely concentrating on developing additional styles to build out her romantically themed day-to-night handbag collection. After four years of consistent growth in accessories under her belt, Rebecca returned to her original love of apparel design and introduced a ready-to-wear collection in 2009. Rebecca Minkoff’s designs are a favorite for modern, trend-setting everyday women and celebrities alike.
