“I am so honored to be part of this collection, and I am just so glad they invited me into this space.” Benefield shared when talking about the history of the collaboration. Harlem’s Fashion Row, which has displayed Benefield’s collection many times during New York Fashion Week, sparked the relationship.

“It has been an amazing partnership. It’s been a beautiful synergy of work.” Benefield gushed. “And to be able to put my work out there under their umbrella, I mean, I truly can’t ask for anything more.”

Benefield then turned and hugged the line of people waiting to give her congratulations and well wishes. Though the party was filled with garment previews, fun cocktails, and fast-paced music, all eyes were on the Parson’s graduate designer.

Harlem’s Fashion Row Founder Brandice Daniel was one of the onlookers. She donned an embellished sleeve tan crop jacket from one of Benefield’s previous collections. 

Daniel told press, “Nicole’s profound vision for women’s fashion is both clear and inspiring. We were thrilled to unite her talents with Abercrombie & Fitch.”

Details about the new must-have Nicole Benefield collection you need in your fall wardrobe

The Abercrombie & Fitch x HFR x Nicole Benefield collection draws inspiration from the streets, allure, and energy of the Big Apple. Perfect for Fall’s transitional season, pieces include trench-style garments, reversible outerwear, comfy yet sultry knitwear, and elevated essentials.

One of the most eye-catching pieces is a grey trench coat with a tie waist, puffy pattern sleeve, and simple design. If paired with a wide-brimmed hat or patent-leather shoes, the coat would bring instant ‘Olivia Pope’ sophistication.

She continued describing the collaboration process, “It’s just felt so natural. It felt like where I belong and what I was meant to do. Effortless.”
