Designer Shoe Warehouse, better known as DSW, hosted its Fall ’17 Press Preview on Thursday, May 11, transforming a photo studio at Pier 59 Studios into an environment inspired by the store of the future.
Last year the brand focused on selling more fashionable accessories, as well as bringing in more exclusive branded merchandise. This year, it’s still delivering cute, on-trend styles.
The event highlighted DSW’s upcoming women’s, men’s and children’s footwear and women’s accessories collections. Taking advantage of Pier 59’s expansive space, and sunlight, the presentation included footwear designs on the photo cyc, metallic tables accented with P59 props and pops of colorful Gerber Daisies.
Multi-media artist, editorial contributor and Paul’s Baby Grand DJ Stefania Pia set the tone spinning tunes while Gastro Chic’s Marcy Swingle was on hand snapping pics.
Some key items for Fall 2017 include Athleisure such as Vans’ ASHER (a DSW Exclusive) and Dolce Vita sneakers; and 80’s Inspired including Mix No. 6’s RAYANE (a DSW Exclusive), Betsey Johnson, Vince Camuto.
Here’s a breakdown of what are in the pipeline from DSW for Fall ’16.
