New York Fashion Week Has Been Bringing The Heat This Winter

New York Fashion Week

I haven’t been posting about New York Fashion Week like I usually do because

1. I’m not there to attend the shows this season and…

2. I have been doing school projects and studying for midterms!!!

But have no fear, the lovelies at Fashionmingle.net have been reporting on the whatnots and the here heres at fashion week in New York. I can tell from all of their reports thus far that New York Fashion Week has definitely been bringing the heat despite what the polar vortex might be trying to pull.

The Trends

COLOR

Designers are having a fabulous time with red, orange and pink. Prabal Gurung sent looks down the runway in the most amazing shades of red and orange I’ve ever seen. Monique Lhuillier accented a few of her gowns with pink designs. Son Jung Wan had a fairly neutral pallet with creams and tan, but added purple and blue looks near the end of the collection.

PRINTS – Mara Hoffman loves a good print. She had very Aztec inspired designs and cuts. She mostly choose prints with a blue base and some black and white prints. Her collection in general had a very tribal feel to it with the prints and silhouettes.

STYLE & FIT

Herve Leger stay true to their uber-fitted, body-con designs. They had a few fit and flares in the mix. They even had looks that reminded me of birds and those brushes you see in car-washes that come from the ceiling! Monique Lhuillier will have you ready for work or a black-tie, red carpet event. Wherever you are looking to go you can find something in Monique’s collection. From her signature “just below the knee” pencil skirts to girly fit & flare cocktail dress, these looks were made for a lady. Alexander favored a very androgynous collection from the look on the models to the fit of the clothes. He had very boxy styles especially in his jackets.

ACCESSORIES: Alexander Wang sent his androgynous models down the runway in backless, slide-on boots. Yes, that’s right…in one evening Alexander Wang may have reinvented footwear. Mara Hoffman had really fun gold cuffs up and down the arms of her models, giving her collection a warrior vibe.New York Fashion Week
