Trend Spotting: NY Fashion Week Day 1 & 2

Fashion's night out (FNO)  kicked off world wide the 8th of September, for me this meant a glimpse at what the dominant  trends for the next season may be. I  would be sharing the shows  I love and any inspirational finds I come across.

BCBG Max Azria was among the shows on day one of FNO, the  collection composed of dresses in flowy, chiffony  light fabric in colour - blocked numbers and a dose of geometric, tribal prints and pleats. predominant color included gray with slices of orange, blue, gray and  mustard across or along  pieces. I love the the collection because they are totally wearable and quite flirty with high side slits and exposed shoulders.

Day 2: Luca Luca had a Seventies-inspired theme going, Citrus and jewel tones dominated the collection. Again there were some striking color-blocking, indicative that this trend would continue into 2012.

Jason Wu's collection has been much anticipated since the 1st lady Michelle Obama, trust him into the limelight by wearing his clothes. his collection featured rigid waist defining tops that billows out into fuller or peplum skirts. well  tailored pants in black, grey and white or monochrome floral prints.
Again the dominant colors are mustard, jewel tones of blues, pink and monochromatic hues.

Nicole Miller was lots of prints and geometric in blues, pinks, orange and yellows

 Cynthia Rowland,  here there was a slight deviation to darker hues with splashes of messy water colour-ish stains of white, pink and blues here and there,  but again alot of prints and geometric in high shine fabric coming into play with peplum skirts.

As the the first two days draw to an end, though it's still too early to define the trends,  a pattern is however begaining to emerge. At least we know we are still going to be wearing beautiful bright colors and loads of prints.
