New York Fashion Week was different this season; in case you hadn’t already heard. Designers showed thier spring/summer 2021 collection in a virtual format. While few designers offered in-person, outside runways shows with extremely small attendance, the majority made artistic videos which showcased thier new collections, or filmed runways without an audience and livestreamed them.
In addition to the shows I was invited to watch, I was able to watch several more designer shows than normally. Not only because I was able to view collections I am not normally invited to see in person, but because I could sit at my desk and go from show to show, instead of having to allocate travel time between shows. This was a very relaxing, and productive, way to do fashion week! Let’s take our “wins” out of this and share them!
If you had a chance to watch along with me, you may have noticed a ton of inspiraiton came from the 1980s and 1990s for spring 2021. Designers loved powersuiting, bright colors, exagerated sleeves, feminine designs, prarie silhouettes, ruffles-lots of ruffles, and a ’90’s hip-hop flair. While the ’80’s donimated, you could still see some early ’90’s floating around, and mixing in with the flashy 1980s. So, without further ado, let’s check out the biggest trends from the New York Fashion Week spring/summer 2021 runways!
