Vivienne Hu showed her fall/winter 2017/2018 collection at New York Fashion Week on February 12, 2017 at the Skylight Clarkson in New York.

Vivienne Hu is always one of my favorite shows of fashion week. She mixes texture and prints in chic, fresh way which are both eye-catching and wearable. I am always coveting everything on her runway!

One of the new, up-and-coming trends we saw during fashion week was bi-color plaid. Vivienne Hu had her own take on the trend which was stunning. This was my favorite look from her runway.

Vivienne Hu also played with stripes, texture, all-black looks (another hot trend for fall), and pops of red.

While Vivienne Hu’s collection has a timeless element to it, the pieces are also on the cutting edge of the hottest trends, making the collection a fabulous investment in both fashion and wardrobe. Love!

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!

Vivienne Hu spring 2017 New York Fashion Week

Vivienne Hu sent her spring/summer 2017 collection down the New York Fashion Week runway at The Art Beam in New York on September 11, 2017. The collection featured beautiful warm weather hues, soft fabrications, body-conscious silhouettes, and something for every occasion. It was nothing short of fabulous!

Hands down, one of my favorite collections for spring 2017 from New York Fashion Week. Vivienne Hu outdid herself this season with classic, and vintage inspiration mixed together. Her designs were a tribute to the strength of New Yorkers following the 911 attacks fifteen years ago. She focused her spring 2017 collection on women standing powerful, strong, and maybe even a little bit sexy. Loved it!

My absolute favorite look from the show was the flowing spaghetti strap, black print dress featured above in my photos. The belt adds structure, and strength, to the otherwise feminine, flowing silhouette. I love the mixture! This whole outfit is number one on my spring 2017 wishlist.

My next favorite look from her runway was the orange maxi skirt with tie blouse. I feel like I must have this outfit in my closet. The two pieces can be worn together, or mixed and matched with other closet staples. They are perfect for spring! I am also in love with all of the striped pieces on the runway. Again, must-haves for spring!

Some of the recurring trends I noticed on the New York Fashion Week runways for spring 2017 included, horizontal stripes, shades of blue, blush, military green, slip dresses over skin tight tops or blouses, asymmetrical lines, dangerously deep v-necks, crop tops, tie blouses, and shades of orange. Vivienne Hu managed to capture all of these elements in her spring 2017 collection. Although her pieces can be considered timeless, they also happen to be right on trend with the fashion mood of-the-moment. Love that!

Designers are forced to reinvent the wheel every season; and Vivienne Hu did just that, seamlessly, and elegantly. Her collection is perfection.
