I recently returned from a very cold (but great) NYC trip for New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015. For those of you that aren’t familiar, Fashion Week happens twice a year; once in September and once in February. Designers show their collections 6 months in advance. Fall/Winter Collections are shown in February and Spring/Summer collections are shown in September. The following designers were among my personal favorites: Cushnie et Ochs, Mara Hoffman, Pamella Roland, Oscar de la Renta, and Marchesa.
Here are a few highlights from each show:
Cushnie et Ochs– I love this design duo because their designs are the perfect combination of feminine, classy, and sexy.
Mara Hoffman– Mara Hoffman’s collections are consistently full of color and texture. I love how her designs are based on inspiration taken from her travels around the world. You may also recognize the Mara Hoffman brand from her amazing swimwear line.
Pamella Roland– Pamella Roland is well known for dressing celebrities for the red carpet, and also has a bridal line. I loved this collection because it was beautiful yet edgy.
Oscar de la Renta-This was the first collection designed by Peter Copping who is now designing for the Oscar de la Renta label. His inaugural collection was exquisite and held true to the timeless Oscar de la Renta aesthetic.
Marchesa– Marchesa is well known in the celebrity/red-carpet world. This collection appeared to be influenced by the 1920’s/Gatsby era with all of the feathers, fringe, and beading. Everything about this show was beautiful, and these are looks we will definitely be seeing on celebrities in the future.
That’s it for my fashion week recap. Stay tuned for a Fall/Winter 2015 trend report.
See you soon New York!
