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!

Get ready to take center stage! There is nothing like an eye catching print. If you love bold, big, and bright, then the spring 2020 season is for you. Designers at the New York Fashion Week favored bold, bright, and dazzling prints, patterns, and stripes for the upcoming warm weather season; and no one will be able to fade into the background while wearing them.

Are you an animal print girl? Chiara Boni le petite robe will be your go-to designer for spring 2020. Prefer giant stripes? Cho Cheng and Noon by Noor have you covered. Looking for a pattern or print no one else has? Look no further than Custo Barcelona and Chiara Boni.

Vintage inspiration at New York Fashion Week spring 2020

The last model has walked off the runways of New York Fashion Week, and we are left with so many trends to get excited about for next year. One of my favorite trends every season comes from vintage inspiration. It is always amazing to see which decades inspired designers for the season.

For the spring/summer 2020 season, designers were in love with the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. We saw a lot of Hollywood glamour, sparkle and shine from the Studio 54 era, feminine touches from the 50’s, sleek and chic 40’s looks, as well as playful and fun 60’s styles. Here are a few highlights from some of the New York Fashion Week runways I attended reflecting the spring 2020 decades of inspiration:

Cho Cheng 60’s

Which one of spring 2020’s decades of inspiration inspire you? I am definitely feeling the 40’s and 70’s, although, I am forever feeling the 70’s, so that’s no surprise. Haha
