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!

Vivienne Hu sent her spring 2018 collection down the New York Fashion Week runway on September 10, 2017 at the Skylight Clarkson in New York. It was a chic yet light and airy collection featuring all-white, city-chic looks paired with classic handbags which were both functional, and  fashion-forward. Love!

There was a certain sophistication to Vivienne Hu’s spring 2018 collection which elevated the way a woman should dress this upcoming warm weather season. The pieces were perfect for the office, or mixed and matched for fundraiser luncheons, brunch, dinner, the theater, or weekend activities. The overall vibe of the collection was chic, sleek, and sophisticated. Love!

Vivienne Hu managed to incorporate spring 2018’s trends into her collection with understated flair pants, cropped tops, and peek-a-boo, cold shoulders. The all-white, and all-black looks on her runway were timeless yet modern; making them ideal for anyone’s closet.

My apologies for my photo quality, I did my best to capture my favorite looks from between heads 😉 The black suit and the off-the-shoulder look are my favorites from the runway, which look is your favorite? You can see the entire collection in my iPhone final walk video below.

One of my favorite runways to see when I attend New York Fashion Week is the Academy of Art University’s collections. When I was a student at the University of San Francisco, we socialized with the kids from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, so I have always felt a tie to the school. As one of the most world renowned art schools, I am also proud to say it is located right here in the Bay Area. I love seeing the fresh take on fashion that students from the University produce. They are the future of the fashion industry. Seeing their show, is getting a glimpse into the future of what emerging designers will create for us to wear.

For the spring 2018, and fall 2018 seasons, the Academy of Art University showcased ten emerging designers from both the BFA and MFA programs. The designers took their inspiration from the world around them; including San Francisco’s own landscape.

The designers from the Academy of Art University who showed at New York Fashion Week included; Hailun Zhou, Eden Slzin, Dina Marie Lam, Carlos Rodriguez, Rheanna Oliver-Palanca, Saya Shen, Joanna Jadallah, Cana Klebanoff, Ryan Yu, and Jelly Shan.

“Every year our designers have shown an amazing showcase of their talent and this year is no exception. This group has crafted each collection, and every piece within their collection has its own unique identity,” comments Jayne Foster, Graduate Director of Fashion. “They have stayed true to their vision and pushed their creative process into collections that show exploration of silhouette and textile techniques. These are the designers who will inspire and lead the next generation of new creatives. It has been a privilege to work with them.”

While the spring 2018, and fall 2018 collections offer an artistic take on fashion, they do reflect what we see trending in the world of fashion for the upcoming year. Hot trends for 2018, spotted on the Academy of Art’s runway include; black/white, geometric silhouettes, silver/metallic, knits, prints, suiting, and the emergence of one piece dressing for men.
