Francesca Liberatore sent her spring/summer 2018 collection down the New York Fashion Week runway on September 10, 2017. Her spring 2018 collection was filled with fine lace, soft fabrications, flowing silhouettes, intricate details, and beautiful prints. Liberatore herself, hand drew two of the prints in her spring collection! Her prints took inspiration from time; both exploring it, and traveling through it. Love!
The color palette Liberatore introduced for spring included blue, yellow, darker greens, violet-blue, pinkish lilac, and neutral hues of grey and white. These colors fit into the hottest color trends for spring 2018 from New York. Grey, and white, are definitely the new black!
Yellow can be a challenging color to work with since it doesn’t always work with everyone’s skin tone. Liberatore found a way to make yellow soft, and easy to wear. By mixing it with fine lace, she turned yellow into a color we can all wear! Love that!
Since my favorite color is blue, I loved everything blue on the Francesca Liberatore spring 2018 NYFW runway. There were several blue dresses; I wish all of my photos came out! You can see a sample in this post of the beautiful blue menswear print Liberatore used on precisely feminine designs. It was the perfect mix!
I’m in love with how Liberatore made menswear feminine, and alluring. Her lace and prints are also divine. You can see the final walk, taken on my iPhone, below.

New York Fashion Week for fall/winter 2017/2018 went by fast for me this year. I only attended four days due to my children’s schedules. I would have loved to stay in New York longer and have been able to attend more shows, but my family comes first. That being said, I was thrilled to be able to go for four days and see all of the shows that I attended.
Here is a journal, or recap, of my four days at New York Fashion Week for the fall/winter 2017/2018 collections. These photos feature my favorite look from each runway, or a final walk video from my iPhone. (apologies for iPhone video quality-the lighting from my seat wasn’t always optimal for me to captures still photos) If I wasn’t able to capture a photo, or a video, I have provided professional photos for you.
Stay tuned! I have plenty of trend reports and runway recaps coming up soon!

Feminine collection with a nod to the late 1960s
Feminine and sophisticated collection. Love!
A nod to the politically charged, angry side of the 1990s. An all-black, slightly metallic collection.
LOVED this show! Concept Korea included three designers, P.Y.H., Kimmy. J., and YOHANIX. They all showed a playful, colorful, fresh, and fabulous collection. Loved all three! This pink number was my favorite of the show.

Showcase of new, up-and-coming designers from Asia. Loved this menswear look on the runway.

Stay tuned for my upcoming trend coverage from New York Fashion Week for the fall/winter 2017/2018 season!
Francesca Liberatore fall/winter 2017/2018 collection New York Fashion Week, February 11, 2017, Skylight Clarkson in New York. These photos were taken from my seat.
Francesca Liberatore has outdone herself this season! Every season I look forward to viewing Francesca Liberatore’s collection at New York Fashion Week. It is always inspired and fresh; yet completely wearable. For fall 2017, her collection has gone a step further. She has taken her collection and made it more luxurious for fall. I am in love!
For the fall/winter 2017/2018 season, Francesca Liberatore took her inspiration from Hyde Park. Not just Hyde Park, but two distinctly different Hyde Parks. One in London in the 1990s with a nod to iconic music group Oasis, and one in New York which is home to the library and residence of Franklin D Roosevelt. Love this!
The collection was filled with powerful stripes in shades of rich blood orange, brick red, magenta, lime, grey, and black which “harken a progress parade on the world’s stage.” There were also shades of champagne, ivory, and pewter. Liberatore used beautiful fabrications which includes velvet and embroidery. Her collection took inspiration from the powerful and popular; how their words can effect society, and how society can shape or destroy them. A nod to current affairs.
The navy and champagne ensemble pictured above was my favorite look from the runway. I felt like it not only embodied her show’s vibe, it had a romantic air about it which I love.
