Leave it to Chromat to bring the snack vibes, both in looks and actual snacks alike. Flaming Hot Cheetos were sent down the runway, cleverly (and conveniently) incorporated into the actual pieces themselves, zip-tied onto a pair of orange pants. Energy drinks were kept in koozy-like pockets sewn into the pants.

Chromat’s Fall 2018 show was a blast — body-diverse models who looked like they were actually having fun in the swimwear dresses and athletic wear pants they wore down the runway. A few models began munching on Cheetos just before reaching the end of the catwalk, which sounds like heaven, tbh (wearing Chromat’s neon neoprene on a New York Fashion Week runway and eating snacks? Yes please!).

Slayrizz provided the high-energy anthem with her song “Salvaje,” and Whoopi Goldberg herself deemed it the most fun she’s had at a fashion show. It’s also a show that most everyone can see themselves in — still very much a rarity for fashion week. From Denise Bidot, Chromat’s first “curvy girl” model, as she told The Cut, to Viktoria Modesta, a Latvia-born pop singer who has an amazing and beautiful collection of artificial legs. “This is the best show I’ve seen, ever,” she said backstage after the show. “I saw everyone represented and it doesn’t get better than that.”
