I'm sure as you already realized, this past week was New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015.
At this point, most of the popular bloggers and major online publications have already written posts and articles about the trends seen on the runways. I wasn't front row, so I can't provide any more new trends that others might have overlooked. Instead I've decided to make a quick highlighted list of my favorite trends and moments from the runway videos and recaps, cause watching every single recap video? Ain't nobody got time for that.
1.) Betsey Johnson's hilarious and perfect ode to 1950's hollywood glamour weddings:
2.) The "Normcore" hair trend has made getting ready in the morning a whole lot faster:
3.) Don't donate your designer sportswear just yet:
4.) If you're planning on wearing a skirt this season, it should have a high-slit:
5.) Ralph Lauren's 4D water projection runway show wins for this year's coolest runway presentation:
6.) Opening Ceremony put on a play instead of a traditional runway show, and it was really awesome.
7.) Platforms are huge. Literally.
8.) When I was watching the Yahoo Live stream of NYFW, Joe Zee and his guest were talking about how designers give birth to trends on their runways. Obviously designers don't all get together in one big group months before and decide on what's hot for that season, but these trends still emerge as you're watching the shows. The themes for each show can be completely different, but ultimately trends are born from various designers showing similar elements.
At one point when they were showing Oscar De La Renta's models on the runway and a gingham ensemble came waltzing down, Joe delcared "Gingham doesn't just happen!". I laughed so hard I almost snorted pizza through my nose.
It's true though: trends, and gingham, just don't happen lovelies.
