NYFW Spring '15 Trends

Laura Notorangelo

Now that a successful Spring 2015 New York Fashion Week has come to an end, it's time to analyze the most prominent trends exemplified by some of the greatest designers around. I had the pleasure of sitting front row at a few shows, so I'm thankful for the good views of such amazing designs. 

For starters, one of the biggest trends for Fall/Winter 2015 collections was color variation. At Honor, frothy pastel colors graced the catwalk. At Leanne Marshall, wearable evening gowns were designed in classic fall shades of gold, ruby, maroon and burnt orange. But Vera Wang showcased timeless black and white designs for her Fall/Winter 2015 collection.

The second biggest trend at Spring 2015 New York Fashion Week was the use and variation of textures. Lightweight fabrics such as silk and chiffon was used for garments ranging from evening wear to blazers. This refreshing take on cold-weather style has me excited for an enlightened season ahead.
