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

Tie dye for spring 2019

spring 2019 fashion trends tie dye trend

Despite the fact that the 1980s and 1990s dominated the spring 2019 runways, there was one huge trend from the late 1960s, and bulk of the 1970s, that sprinkled the runways in New York, Paris, Milan and London; tie-dye. That’s right! Our childhood summer camp activity is currently high fashion. It’s time to grab our Grateful Dead records, dust off our turn-tables, and peace out in tie-dye.

Out of all the spring 2019 fashion trends, tie-dye is the most fun. You can buy white clothing or accessories and host a tie-dye party at your house, where you can create your new spring wardrobe; or you can attend summer camp and make your own designs while enjoying nature! Or, you can be like most of us who will purchase something with a tie dye design from the store. 😉

Tie-dye for spring 2019 is being found on everything you can imagine. Designers didn’t limit the hippie print to tee’s. You can rock your colorful tie-dye, or two-tone tie-dye, on any article of clothing or accessory your heart desires. There are tee’s, skirts, jackets, pants, dresses, jumpsuits, shoes, scarves, handbags; you name it!

For the spring 2019 season, I am eyeing both dresses and skirts with tie-dye prints on them. I already did the tie-dye tee thing in the 1970s and 1980s. This time around, I think it would be fun to rock tie-dye on something unexpected; and to me, anything other than a traditional tee is unexpected.

The tie-dye trend is reminiscent for me. I was a small child in the 1970s and I grew up in Marin County. We had a ton of hippies in Marin, and they turned into aging hippies in the 1980s; which was the decade where I spent the bulk of my childhood. We had hippies everywhere. There were people in tie-dye driving bugs and hippie vans all over the place. While my family was conservative, seeing a hippie trend does take me back to my childhood; which was peaceful and fun. I love a trend that sparks happy memories!
