New York, London, Paris and Milan. Four amazing cities. Four amazing fashion weeks.
These past couple of months have been hectic – to say the least – as models, editors and designers jetted around the world to take the first peek at what’s in store for this Autumn/Winter 2012. Now that this big event in the editorial calendar has passed, I thought that I should show my favourite fashion week collections, starting with the Big Apple; New York.
These three designers were my favourites from New York Fashion Week because their eclectic designs, amazing colour palette and use of textures fascinated me. Alice and Olivia’s Autumn/Winter collection was full of texture, from long dramatic gowns to cargo pants, the designer mixed elegance with a touch of ‘Bowieness’. My favourite piece has got to be the lace dress with the low back (as seen on image 4). I’m not really a big fan of lace but this gown oozes elegance and sophistication – if only I had my prom just a few years later! Nicholas K’s collection is more my style. The inspiration behind his collection was the Taos artists from the 1920s & 30s. His colour palette of desert colours with strong blue and black hues played well in his pieces of fringing and draped knits and jerseys. My favourite outfit has to be image 4; with the long dress, pendant and cowboy-esque hat. Nicholas K’s collection is a ready-to-wear collection which shows that you don’t need couture or fancy dresses to look designer. Finally, Jeremy Scott’s collection is fun – doesn’t the Bart Simpson face print jumper and Unicorn body make you smile?! This collection also includes computer printed dresses, stripy jumpsuits, and not forgetting a rainbow wig coat made from 100% human hair! My favourite look has got to be the unicorn body – if only I had the figure and the money!
