NY Fashion Week 2012 F/W Recap

Hello Lovely people, hope you all having a fab week?

As NY fashion week draws to a close and the attention shifts to London, I decided to share a recap of my favorite looks from the shows.  These trends are likely to dictate what we would find in the shops and streets this year, it  would be interesting to see what trends gets adopted by the fashion crowd and what trends end with the shows.

Phillip Lim
The inspiration for the collection was modern day super hero though with a minimalist approach. the play of colours was basically monochromatic.I particularly like the twist with the collar and the the plastic belt which is made from a similar material as the collar. inspite of the lack of colour save for a few Orange frocks the overall look was très chic.

Alexander Wang
For me the structure of the collection was quite achitectural and edgy very bikers/ rock star edge. it also featured some jaw dropping knee length boots. colour scheme was Black, white, and  dark red.

Kate Spade
Fantastic Parisian inspired collection, this was a great collection, most of the pieces can go straight from the catwalk to your ward robe. the collection was quirky, colourful and very ladylike with florals, prints, bows, i found  it hard to decide which pieces i liked best.

Monique Lhuillier
This collection was very feminine and flirty with some breath taking dresses. palettes was mainly black with some strong infusion of bright reds. 

Great collection with influences from Morrocco, india and italy.

Diane Von Furstenberg
This designer in my opinion is one of the few that flatters a woman's form to perfection, and this collection resonated that ability. the collection was subtle, sexy , classy rich just name it and i totally love it. Again another collection that goes straight from the catwalk to the wardrobe. Yet again too many photos to pick from you would have to see the entire collection to appreciate it. 

Victoria Beckham
She is fast establishing herself as a force to be reckoned with in the industry, and by this i mean in terms of her creative ability.  The silhouette here was bodycon, form fitting, ladylike, elegant and very detail oriented which is part of her strong points. overall great collection.

Carolina Herrera
When i saw this collection the word that came to mind was ' Ballroom Elegance', again very rich, elegant and detail oriented structured collection. there was an infusion of red, and blue which contrasted nicely with the black and grey pieces. this is another designer that worships the woman form with her pieces. Also love the puffy hair do, anyone know how to get the look? 

Oscar de  la Renta
This collection featured a lot of pastel colours as against the reds and monochromes we have seen in most other collections. There were voluminous ball dresses and loads of embellishment in use here as well as a play with detailed textured fabrics .

Tory Burch
This was ladylike  prim and proper but with a bit of attitude

Bradgley Mischka

Collage was done by me with the help of these wonderful softwares that have graciously made themselves known, ( sorry guys for the water marks) 

Have a great weekend!
