Christian Cowan

New York Fashion Week 2019 has just

taken place and we have seen some

interesting sights! AW suggests vibrant

colours such as bright yellows, oranges, reds and some metallics. We saw plain colours

such as white and beige along with loud

neons in pink, green and orange. Metallics

have been a major part of NY Fashion

Week and they’ve turned from silver to pinky hues as we edge into Autumn, featured in

both Tory Burke and Michael Kors collections.

Christian Siriano included animal like prints in his collection which were definitely a major trend last season and it is looking as though they are to carry on evolving through autumn into winter. His looks were bold with rounded shoulders and ruffled sleeves, again the colours he used were very AW. He included yellows and neutrals seen in many collections with mixed prints and camouflage designs these have been seen in similar looks such as Zimmerman Zimmerman.

Tye Dye, Crochet and Satin

Prabal Gurung Ulla Johnson JYU RIRI

Tie dye has made a return! As we’ve seen in Michael Kors and Prabal Gurung’s designs with loud colours being used for both. Crochet also made a big appearance in many shows including Oscar de la Renta and Ulla Johnson. We saw satin and sheer being used as well in Tom Ford’s short suits and also in Jyu Riri and Matthew Adams Dolan’s collections.

Short Suits, Checks

More of the major

trends were short

suits seen in Dion Lee,

Tom Ford, Linder

and Mathew Adams

Dolan. We also

saw some checks

making a return in

Vaquera and Franklin

Rowein! Reworked

denim was also a

stand out trend

this season.

Fishnet, Cargo Pants, Puff Sleeves

Fishnet we saw in collections such as Mariam Zadeh and Dion Lee who matched it with an underwear as outerwear style. Beige coloured and dark cargo pants were seen all over the catwalk in Ralph Lauren collections along with the same bright neon colours we’ve seen in Prabal Gurung. Puffy sleeves have been huge in NY fashion week as they’ve been seen in most runways, we spotted them in Badgley Mischka and Kate Spade’s new collections.

with other bold colours.

Ruffled Hems and Fringing

We saw a lot of frills and

all white outfits in the

Jonathan Simkhai AW

collection. Marc Jacob also

went with over the top frills for some of his runway looks.

This was similar in the Tory Birch Collection where long dresses with frill detail were

a statement trend.

Leather, Bright Raincoats, Satin

Tom Ford showed us that leather is still around for winter but we’re edging away from the everyday leather jacket and using a more skin like textural approach with how we wear it. Marc Jacobs big use of colour in his collection features in large raincoats which again have been seen in lots of Autumn looks. Satin has made a big entrance and Matthew Adams Dolan does a good job of using it for a short suit look – right on trend.

Styles and Accessories we saw mostly included large hoops, micro shades, bucket hats and head scarves and chain like jewellery!
