Ever wanted a peek into New York Fashion Week? There are parties, presentations, fashion shows, and tons of photo shoots happening. I definitely hope to take you there through my blog & social media next year! The essence of #NYFW are the fashion shows.
Designers are presenting their spring collections since the fashion industry works so far ahead, often 6 months out. Some designers are trying out the buy now, wear now trend that has been popular as of late. Fashion shows are important because they are influential in all of the clothing that will be in the stores just a few months from now. Even if you can’t afford these designer clothes, you’ll notice these same trends in your favorite stores.
New York Fashion Week Recap:
Ulla Johnson is a born New Yorker, the daughter of archaeologists. You can see that influence in the texture of the collection. Even though it’s spring apparel, I love the way she has incorporated the knits for an added dimension. Her color palette and fabric choice make this an interesting collection. The orange silk pants are a must have!

Print party! Joseph Altuzarra knows how to create great combinations of fun prints with ladylike silhouettes. There is a classic side to these outfits but the prints and cuts make it sexy with just a bit of edge. This is power dressing of the future.
Self Portrait is the recent darling of the fashion world. Launched just three years ago by Han Chong, you can see this brand on all your favorite bloggers. That nude + lace look is just so good. (on sale here!) This collection is a little less feminine but still super cool. The lace details are still there but the asymmetric necklines are calling my name!
Sequins + stripes, you can never go wrong with those! This collection is effortlessly chic and sexy, brought to you by the design duo Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia who have worked at Oscar de la Renta (my fav!) prior to launching their own line just a year ago. The vibes this collection gives me is EVERY.THING. Notice a trend? More off-the-shoulder. Get ready!
This collection is all about the movement. Even from the photos you can get a sense of how well the fabrics drape and move. Makes you want to twirl doesn’t it? The colors are a little more earthy than you normally see in a spring collection but I think the lightness of the fabrics and white ensembles balance to make it all work.
Velvet continues and I’m not mad at it. I think I’ve enjoyed every collection Victoria Beckham has produced and this one is no exception. The relaxed feel of this collection is much different from her Posh Spice days but somehow still works. The texture and color in this collection are perfectly cool for spring.
Hopefully you enjoyed seeing what’s coming for next spring. I’d love to know if you have a favorite designer!
