New York Fashion Week is first out of the gate in the month-long fashion week circuit, giving North America a chance to stamp their mark on the biggest trends for the upcoming season. We were lucky enough to be in the heart of the action as some of the biggest names in fashion showed us what they predict will be hot for Spring/Summer 2016.
New York is White Hot
The big colour on the runway (or lack of) was white. Popular for the past few seasons, white took center stage, with designer Jay Godfrey even creating his collection entirely in white. As we are seeing designers focusing far more on cut, line and silhouette, white is a great way to go, creating a clean, strong look.
For the past few seasons, the dominance of layering and boxy cuts have meant form has been a little absent in the stores and on the runway. If this season’s offerings are anything to go by, that is soon to change. Nipped wastes and tailored cuts had a strong presence.
We have seen colour blocking then pattern blocking as the big trends, but now it is the turn of texture blocking. Laces, spandex and lamee were in abundance on the runways, bringing a fresh take on the blocking trend.
Every season at NYFW is always exciting, fast-paced and a wonderful experience!
