Spring 2011 New York Fashion Week Begins NOW

Today was the first day of New York Fashion Week! I just started looking at collections, because I didn’t have service at the IFB Conference. From what I have seen so far, short sets, wide pants, basics, and graphic prints are very popular.

I was really impressed with Lyn Devon’s collection. I think it was bright, fun, flirty, and totally wearable. When I saw it, spring came to mind. There were pieces that you could easily mix and match. It is a great wardrobe building collection.

While I liked the Nicholas K. collection, I thought it was more suited for a colder season. I mean, yea it had cropped tops and cropped pants, but it just seemed unseasonal. It was still a great collection, just made for the wrong season.

Organic by John Patrick was crisp, white, and airy. The collection reminded me of fresh laundry or linen. This collection, just like the Lyn Devon one, was full of great basics. I love crazy fashion, but I think it is great for designers to make clothes that people can wear everyday or more than once.

Sachin + Babi had some great pieces that spice up the wardrobe and some basics that you could wear everyday. This collection was great because of the mix between the wild and the tame. There seemed to be a balance between the two instead of a war.

The Willow collection was graphic city. Graphic dresses, short shorts, and skirts. Prints were everywhere. It was a very interesting, beautiful, and modern collection.
