How beautiful is Leanne Marshall’s spring/summer 2018 collection! Every New York Fashion Week, her collection sweeps down the runway in dreamy silhouettes, with flowing fabrications. How can one not be in love! I’m swept off my feet!

For the spring 2018 season, Leanne Marshall showed vivid colors, and a few non-gala options which can be worn during the day, or evening, depending on the event or occasion. These ready-to-wear options from her collection bring her dream-like collection closer to the streets, where it can be integrated into one’s everyday wardrobe. Can I just tell you how exciting this is?! It is exciting!!!

I would love to get my hands on that printed dress shown at the top of this post, or that fabulous yellow skirt from the runway. The colors are so vivid and beautiful, she has really outdone herself for spring 2018!

Her designs are unique, fashion-forward, fresh, and inspire others. In addition, when you see her clothing in person, you can see the high quality craftsmanship and detailing which make her clothing fit perfectly, drape correctly, and look downright dreamy. I can’t tell you how often I see uneven hems, stitching, and flaws on runway clothing. Leanne Marshal always has her game above and beyond expectations. Love!

Is it spring 2018 yet? I want this collection to hit store shelves!

You can shop Leanne Marshall’s ongoing sample sale online here.

NYFW fall 2017 photo journal

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!

Top 5 trends for fall 2016 from New York Fashion Week

trends from the new york fashion week runways fall 2016

New York Fashion Week has officially come to an end. This means the fashion world has been left with a whole new list of trends to look forward to for the upcoming fall/winter 2016/2017 season. While we saw many continuing trends from past seasons walk down the catwalks, we also saw new styles to look forward to, and covet, for the cool weather season.

There were many, many trends on the New York Fashion Week fall 2016 runways, so to make it less overwhelming, I have narrowed it down to the five most significant trends to covet for the fall 2016 season. Without further adieu . . .

1 Stand out in TEXTURE

Texture is a loaded term for the embellishments designers offered up for the fall 2016 season at New York Fashion Week. As the top trend of the season, designers mixed fabrications, added embellishments, showed hand-sewn beadwork, small mirror embellishments, lacework, fur (real and faux), soft and structured fabrics mixed together, and layers of texture.

You can mix texture on one piece of clothing, or you can layer multiple pieces with differing textures. However you rock it this fall, mix it. Texture that is. 😉

2 Rock your inner Bohemian with FRINGE and peace out

Protest your favorite cause, and peace out because with the 1970s trend in full swing, fringe in all forms is a hot trend for fall 2016 from New York. Look for long fringe on longer pieces, and short fringe on jackets, dresses, and tops. Fringe has been reinvented on shorter pieces. Instead of traditional fringe, string or fabric, look for fringe beadwork as seen on the Custo Barcelona runway, and also the Marcel Ostertag runway. Shake shake shake, and show off your fringe!

3 Don’t be blue, just wear SHADES OF BLUE

Don’t let grey skies make you blue this cool weather season, instead, wear shades of blue! As much blue at once as humanly possible! Designers for fall 2016 in New York loved pale blue, medium blue, bright blue, and navy. Look for pieces in one shade of blue, or layer them together for a cool, blue look. You cannot go wring with blue for fall 2016. It is the hip color of the season.

4 Get groovy with 1970s INFLUENCE

Can ya dig it? The early 1970s were in full force on the runways for fall 2016 at New York Fashion Week. Look for carry-over, short hemlines from the late 1960s, and very 1970s midi lengths, and maxi lengths. We will see athleisure suits, flowing fabrics, wide-leg trousers, blazers, wrap skirts and dresses, and a general groovy vibe. Peace.

5 Stock up on staples because NEUTRALS RULE

Every designer in New York showed several neutral looks for fall 2016. Instead of playing with colors, they played with texture. There were all black looks on Custo Barcelona’s runway which offered mixed texture, and several choices for the perfect little black dress at Leanne Marshall. Designers showed black and white together, grey and black together, shades of grey mixed together, all-white, all-grey, and all-black. The top three neutrals for fall 2016 are definitely black, grey, and white.

Want to mix it up? Add a pop of blue or red (bright or burgundy) to break up the black, grey, or white you will be wearing. Otherwise, you cannot go wrong mixing these three neutral colors together this fall.

*There you have it! The top five trends from the New York Fashion Week fall 2016 runways. Of course, there were far more trends than what I mentioned above, but these are the trends which you will find most often when you head out to the stores to shop for fall 2016.

Easy ways to prep for fall 2016:

  1. Invest in a pair of wide-leg trousers in either black, grey, or white.
  2. Invest in a jacket or coat with texture in black, grey, pale blue, or navy.
  3. Get one fringe piece to rock. You can get a fun jacket, cocktail dress, or top to pair with a black midi skirt, or mini skirt. Just remember to shake shake shake!
  4. Invest in at least one textured piece in lace, beadwork, embroidery, appliques, or faux fur.
  5. Change up your hemline. If you favored midi skirts last year, rock a mini dress or maxi dress.

Other notable trends for fall 2016 from the New York Fashion Week runways include: softened autumn hues, shades of red, shades of mustard, large bracelets stacked on the arm, choker necklaces, mixed metals, metallic fabrics, open shoulders, sheer fabrics, occasional bright hues, mixed prints, bomber jackets, athleisure, leisure suits, small handbags, suede shoes, lace-up clothing and shoes.

That’s a wrap! What were your favorite trends from the New York Fashion Week runway for fall 2016?
