While most Americans have been obsessing over the start of football season and all of the scandals that have come with it, I have been binge watching NY Fashion Week. The excitement that I get from watching has to be equal to that of a sports fanatic watching the latest game. From the fabrics and textiles, to the color pallets and cuts, the entire week is one long assemblage of walking artwork. Below is a compilation of my favorite designers this year, and some trends that I am most excited about:
Marissa Webb for her army inspired coats, coordinating strappy heels, and structured jackets.
Jay Godfrey’s use of flowy lace and bohemian inspired accessories.
Desigual While a lot of their pattern mixing was too dramatic for my taste, I did appreciate the fresh colors and the curvier models.
Nicole Miller and Rebecca Minkoff offered feminine yet muted pastels with interesting patterns.
Diane Von Furstenburg I am constantly falling more in love with her as a designer and just an inspiring woman. Her breezy spring colors and refreshing use of gingham made the runway feel like a picnic. And the way she ended the show was heart warming!
Monique Lhuellier offered my favorite color pallet of the week, and a gorgeous, glittery lilac gown.
