“Never Have I Ever” star Ramona Young made quite the fashionable entrance at Coach‘s spring 2023 runway show, which took place on an imagined pier at the Park Avenue Armory during New York Fashion Week on Sept. 12. The 24-year-old rising star chose a bright, crochet-knit dress for the occasion, styling it smartly with Coach’s ever-popular Bandit bag.
“The dress I wore was so soft and adorable, so I had a lot of fun adding a little edge to it with the sunglasses, choker, and boots.”
“There were so many fresh, unique looks this season, and I was so excited about the Scooby-Doo collaboration,” Young told POPSUGAR of the runway show, where Lil Nas X made his modeling debut as the brand’s newest ambassador. “However, there was something about the blue knit dress that stood out to me, so I picked it as a wild-card option.” Young was attracted to the design mostly because of its nostalgic quality, a theme in the spring 2023 collection, which centered on “love-worn” garments that become more beautiful and imperfect with age. Stuart Vevers constructed the pieces by repurposing leather from footballs, hand-knit fisherman sweaters, and distressed denim.
Young says her own everyday wardrobe typically includes clothing that is effortless and comfortable yet chic. “I look at the color, the silhouette, and most importantly how I feel in it,” she says. Her Coach dress at New York Fashion Week ultimately checked all those boxes. “I was drawn to the way it made me feel. I wasn’t sure I could pull it off, but once I tried it on, we all knew it was the one. The fit just stood out.”
