Trends for fall 2024 from NYFW

New York Fashion Week was quiet this season, as many designers opted for more creative ways to showcase their fall/winter 2024/25 collections instead of traditional runways. In addition, NYFW’s behind-the-scenes organizers, such as the CFDA and IMG have removed the covid-era live-streams from the majority of designer shows and brought back the exclusive, you-had-to-be-there vibe.

In addition, fashion week has taken a backseat on social media since the covid-era, making it a quiet event in the background. As someone in the press, I continue to follow the shows from home, instead of trekking across the country and attending in-person as I did a decade ago and pre-covid. I have to admit, covering the shows, and seeing what is coming in for the next season is rather enjoyable from the comfort of my office as opposed to braving the snow, flying across the country, and worrying about my daily outfits. It will be interesting to see, as social media evolves, if fashion week eventually turns back into the event it morphed into from 2016-2020, or will it stay in its pre-influencer, exclusive bubble. I guess only time will tell. In the meantime, let’s talk fall 2024 trends from New York Fashion Week!

First off, speaking of non-traditional runways, how fabulous is this photo from Leanne Marshalls fall/winter 2024/25 show? She showcased her fall collection on the ice, and showed how the fabrics can flow, movement, and a lighthearted vibe. It was a return to Bryant Park, NYFW’s old home, and a nod to her fifteen years of fashion since her debut at Project Runway. When I used to attend NYFW in person, I always enjoyed her shows and collections. She is extremely talented, and her designs are always amazing. I love her use of color for fall in this collection. Fabulous!

Now, let’s chat about a few dominant trends from the runways for the fall 2024 season.

  1. Oversize Suiting: Gone are the days of the cropped blazer, the fitted blazer, and the slim trousers. The power suit for fall will offer relaxed fits, and oversize silhouettes. Thankfully, this is a comfortable way to wear a suit.
  2. Metallics: Not really groundbreaking, I mean, it seems like a “trend” every fall season. But, all shades of metal are hot for fall. So keep your silvers, golds, and metals, they will still be relevant in the autumn season.
  3. Feminine Touches: Touches of lace, bow details, flowing skirts, one-inch heels, soft fabrics, and skirts that blow in the wind. There is a return to feminine fabrics and dressing as a whole.
  4. The return of Faux Fur: It was only gone for two seasons. I guess we couldn’t resist! Pull out your faux fur from the back of your closet, this trend is back. Look for faux fur touches on collars, as well as full blown coats and jackets. It’s fuzzy time.
  5. Autumn Hues: Traditional autumn hues are hot again for fall. Think reds, oranges, greens, and yellows.
  6. Chain Bags: This classic handbag style seems to have moved to the front of the handbag pack. Pull out your Chanel bags, or invest in a more affordable version from Tory Burch or Coach. Long live the timeless chain bag!

Well, there you have it. The short list of what’s hot for fall 2024 from the New York Fashion Week runways. Continue to invest in your wardrobe with timeless pieces and save trendier items you love. The pendulum keeps swinging, and what you have stored in the back of your closet will eventually swing back in!

Thanks for stopping by!

Leanne Marshall spring 2018 New York Fashion Week

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!
