TICKET TO THE TENTS DAY 7 TREND REPORT(Featuring Betsey Johnson, Erin Fetherston, Anna Sui, Deola Sagoe/Clan, Michael Kors)

We are wrapping up our New York Fashion Week coverage, and survived 7 days of running around the city to bring you the latest and greatest in fashion week news! Here is our take on Day 7 trends!

UNIQUE RUNWAY

What’s fashion week without an over-the-top runway presentation by Betsey Johnson? Boring! And our team at FashionMingle.net doesn’t like boring, so luckily for us, we have Betsey Johnson’s runway to look forward to every season. Betsey showcased her Spring collection on Day 7, opening up the show with 2 models representing gay marriage.  When they turned around their suit coats said pre-nup! And that was the name of Betsey’s wedding-themed collection.

COLOR

Erin Fetherston’s collection was classically simple, but lovely.  Erin featured black and white, pastel yellows, and deep shades of blue.  By default, Betsey’s collection featured a lot of white, since it was wedding themed.  Michael Kors’ collection was also heavy on the blues and yellows, though there were some pastels, and black and white separates intermixed in the collection.

PRINTS

No one mixes prints like Anna Sui, and for her Spring 2015 collection she did not disappoint. Erin Fetherston also incorporated florals, but again in a simple, but sophisticated way. The florals in Erin’s collection did not overwhelm the garments.  Michael Kors featured a plethora of print looks, but the prints were either floral based or plaid based.

FABRICS

Betsey Johnson’s runway featured lots of tulle, as to be expected for her wedding themed collection.  Betsey also featured a few looks that resembled nylon or plastic that would typically be used for rain coat materials! I could definitely see Miley Cyrus in one of these  plastic-esque looks! Erin incorporated sheer fabrics into her collection for use in her striped looks.

ACCESSORIES

The Anna Sui models had everything from veils to shades. It was a really cool runway! Betsey Johnson’s wedding themed collection entitled Pre-Nup featured fun heels and fun handbags.  She created a cake shape handbag and a lipstick shaped handbag.

DEBUT RUNWAY: Deola Sagoe/Clan

The brands Deola Sagoe and Clan fashions debuted for the first time at New York Fashion Week.  Deola Sagoe is the designer behind the Deola Sagoe label, while the clan collection is designed by her daughters Tena, Tiwa, and Aba Sagoe.  They labels are based in Africa, and this was their first time showing at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The looks were unique, and we love to see emerging and up and coming designers featured at New York Fashion Week.

Candice Huffine and Laura Catterall prove that plsu size girls can wear prints too in Marina Rinaldi’s S/S 13 ad campaign. They look pretty hot if you ask me. I was finally able to visit a Marina Rinaldi store when I went to Monaco. It was divine. I think there is one in New York City. I might have to check that out the next time I am in the city. Click here for a video and the rest of the campaign.

Yuna Yang SS 13

This season’s Yuna Yang collection was simply beautiful. With a pre-show clip featuring a fashion caper who stole the collection out of an apartment and dashed through Central Park, I was able to get a glimpse of the collection before the fashion presentation began. Then the music of Civil Twilight started and the first looks came out in the Nasdaq building.

Erin Barr SS 13

The Erin Barr show was a lesson in sophisticated, downtown chic. Tight, tailored cropped pants, blouses, and dresses adorned the models on a set that looked like a mid-century living room or an extremely chic early 1960s all girl college dorm common room. The modernist black and white shoes by Michael Antonio really added to this stark collection. The palette went from beige and grey to black and red stripes. The slits and v-cuts added a sexiness to the collection. If you want to know what sophisticated, downtown chic is… check out this collection

Osklen SS13

Check out these shots from behind the scenes of the Osklen SS13 “Endless Summer” collection  ad campaign shoot. Creative Director Oskar Mestavaht traveled to Malibu to shoot the Southern California/ Rio de Janiero inspired campaign with photographer Vavá Ribeiro, featuring models Alicia Kuczman, Heather Sutton, and Jacob Crumbley. The pictures are so dreamy, and the sunsets are so beautiful. I can only imagine how beautiful  the ads are going to turn out.
