I realize that New York Fashion Week ended last Thursday, but I’ve been so completely immersed in other things to take a minute and review what I saw on the runways. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw snippets of the shows I was so fortunate enough to attend through work.
Overall, the shows this season showcased a much more mature approach to dressing. Retro-ladylike skirts and dresses dominated the prettier runways, while tough-girl minimalism was shown at shows like Altuzarra, Alexander Wang and Calvin Klein.
One designer that really stood out to me (besides Jenny Packham OH MY GOODNESS) was London-transplant Negarin. I learned that her designs were inspired by the Northern Lights while her illusion cuts provided flattering silhouettes in cool shades of mint, ivory, silver grey and mocha.
