Day two of New York Fashion Week was a lot calmer than day one! I attended four shows, Issosy London (children’s clothing), Francesca Liberatore, Katie Gallagher, and Demoo Parkchoonmoo. My friend Dawn (who took these fabulous photos), and I had a chance to actually eat three meals, and walk around a little bit. Eating meals-what a luxury!
These black fringe booties have turned out to be so comfortable! They are made from a soft suede which helps add to the comfort level. I love the fringe on the side, it is both sassy and on trend. Love that! I cannot wait to wear these booties non-stop until the rainy season starts. And yes, I am very optimistic that God will give us rain in the Bay Area this year. It is time for that pesky drought to stop! But I digress. . .
After two days of shows, some spring 2017 trends are starting to pop up! Many designers seem to be favoring black and white combinations, metallic hues, green, pink, red, and soft autumnal hues. One color trend which is surprising me, is the continuation of blush! It seems like blush pink has been around for many seasons. I thought by now designers would tire of the ultra-feminine hue in favor of other shades from the color wheel, but it seems to still be going strong. Hang on to your blush pieces from 2016 ladies, it will still be hot in 2017!
In addition to color trends, designers seem to be favoring small floral prints, pattern mixing, texture, vertical stripes, decadent embellishments, twisted and tied fabrics; and a 1960s influence seems to be emerging. It will be interesting to see if these trends continue throughout fashion week, and if store buyers pick them up!
Stay tuned! Early next week I will give a full trend report straight from New York. I have hundreds of photos from the runways to sort through, and decipher. I can’t wait to identify some new trends for spring 2017 and share them with you!
