Let the Fashion Trend Battle Begin:
NYFW Fall 2016 was a fierce battle with many trends fighting it out for the death. We have officially gone from have clear concrete trends to too many micro trends all at once. The main battle has been the same battle that has been going on for the past few seasons. The 90’s trends have been duking it out with the 70’s trend. There also seems to be battle between the minimalism of the Normcore trend that was big a few seasons ago and has its roots in the 90’s and some of the 1930’s glamour that helped influence the decadence of the 70’s.
Seriously Though… No Shade:
NYFW Fall 2016 was interesting, and I mean that in a good way. I’m not trying to throw shade like your shady aunt when she is trying to say something nice about an ugly baby. You know what I mean… Even though I have said that this season has started off as a bit of a convoluted mess of trends mixing, mingling, and merging together, it still was pretty good. I am not sure how these trends are going to trickle down into the stores for the average consumer market, but it should be interesting to see how that turns out. I also want to know how designers plan of fixing the fashion calendar. Some designers are going to start showing clothes on the runway and then selling them, but that is another blog post for a totally different day.
The Future of Fashion Is Near:
Look above that photo collage. Tell me what do you see as far as fall trends are concerned. If you were to go and look at some of the other pictures the many collections that showed, you would see minimal garments that excite with magentas and purple shades, metallics in many colors including golds and silvers, and ruffles, capes, and oversized peplums for volume. I love the looks coming out of New York. I really can’t wait to see what London, Milan, and Paris have to bring. Will it be a continuation of what New York had to offer or will it be something completely different. I am not sure if the general public will be interested in these clothes and their competing trends, but my little old fashion self is. What are your thoughts?
