As Fashion Week in Paris is coming to an end, we have tons of new trends and styles to look forward to for Spring 2016. The month of September is a BIG month in fashion as we start the month with New York Fashion Week and then move onto London, Milan and then Paris to round out the month. Even though we are in the midst of fall, it makes me excited to look forward to spring and the beautiful rich colors and luxurious fabrics. Someday I will be there at the shows getting to see the fashion firsthand. But for now I can just relive the shows through images online and through the multitude of Instagram pics from dozens of fashion bloggers and celebrities.
First up from New York is my favorite classic designer Oscar de la Renta. His clothes are the essence of true ladylike style — and with feminine dresses with details like lace and florals, this collection did not disappoint. The main color was red and it looked amazing! This is also the first runway show since Mr. de la Renta passed, and Peter Copping (Creative Director) did not disappoint as he captured the brand beautifully.
A London fashion week wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Burberry, a classic staple in England’s fashion scene for centuries. But despite the fashion brand being around for years they know how to stay with the times. They recently announced their partnership with Apple and treated show attendees to a mini concert by Alison Moyet as the models walked down the runway adorn in silk skirts, lace mini dresses and trench coats with militaristic details. The pairing of sporty pieces with vintage inspired dresses was a perfect combination.
And finally from Milan was the Dolce & Gabbana show. The collection was inspired from vintage Italian movies, with some Sicilian history and culture. There were bright colors and fun girly details on every piece. During the show the models took selfies on their phones as the walked the runway, which was a fun aspect of the show that was totally unique to Dolce & Gabbana!
