Fashion and Style combined with Polyvore sets
It’s already day 2 of NYFW Spring/Summer 2015, and judging from last night’s shows, it appears that a few trends are setting the tone as to what one may see on the runways today. The late 1970s-early 1980s appear to be in vogue, with different types of dress construction decidedly make that all the more apparent. So far, I like what I see when it came to the runway shows yesterday, and am looking forward to the rest of this week and the world wide shows yet to come! Platforms, wedges, flat soles, thick platform soles were seen on the feet of many of the runway models in yesterday’s shows, it appears that part of the mid-late 1990s is back in style. I would like to see more form fitting silhouettes, and a little less of the boxy silhouettes, the boxy silhouettes that were synonymous with the mid-late 1980s in terms of women’s fashion seem to be here to stay for now.
In spite of that, it’s nice to see designers make up for the boxiness in most looks by using a lot of color, prints, and embellishments. I’ve grown weary of minimalism, especially minimallsm with the color palette, we need to see some over-the-top fashion strutting the runways. If minimalism was part of the designer’s overall design aesthetic, then I really wouldn’t have a problem with it. That aside, the 2nd day of MBNYFW S/S 2015 will officially open, not with a fashion show, but with a seminar entitled “Fashion Law Institute” over at Fordham Law School. The designer given the honor to grace us with their latest collection strutting down the runway is none other than Stella Nolasco. Project Runway will be after that with (presumably) one winning designer (or at least contest winners) showing off their looks. The other designers scheduled to hit the runway today are Mark and Estel, Zimmermann, Carmen Mark Valvo, Kate Spade New York, Trina Turk, Rebecca Minkoff, Saunder, Nicole Miller, Monique Lhuillier, Charlotte Ronson, August Getty, Crown by Colin King, Wes Gordon, CG, Peter Som, Tess Giberson, Lyn Devon, Tanya Taylor, Jason Wu, Sally Lapointe, Cushnie et Ochs, Adam Selman, Araks, Nonoo, Novis, Rodebjer, L.A.M.B., A Détacher, N. Hoolywood, Siki Im, and Suno. With each review I post, there will be a link to either style.com or YouTube if you want to see the what the latest collections look like.
