Last week at Macy's Herald Square, an eclectic gathering of models and generally inspiring, live-your-best-life types walked the runway sporting Macy's new Nicopanda collection, a combination of the first's iconic appeal and Nicola Formichetti's aptitude for young, bright street style. An insane turnout of spectators watched as Precious Lee, Nico Tortorella, Gigi Gorgeous, and Aquaria playfully jaunted on the catwalk. DJ Nina Sky helped capture the essence of the show, which was, in a word, fun.

While Formichetti's resume in fashion is nothing to take lightly, he indeed has a knack for making the air feel fun and approachable. The Nicopanda Ball, as it was called, was more of a celebration of creativity and uniqueness than any sort of adherence to the industry's typical standards of beauty or opulence. While we've seen no shortage of collaborations within fashion and beauty over the years (Formichetti has, of course, recently teamed up with MAC as well), this one stands out on pure likability and unapologetic approach to unruly coolness. Check out, photos below.
