Last week we gave you a list of 9 designers to watch and now that NYFW is over, we’re bringing you a report on the buzziest looks that walked down the runway. Don’t miss these spring 2015 stunners…
Walter Lee didn’t disappoint at this week’s NYFW. The Meden collection was colored with light hues like white and light blue and designed with asymmetrical lines in flowing, above-the-knee length dresses and skirts. The fabrics were just as light, pulling dresses and high necklines in Y shapes. We spotted curved and smoothed lines that hug and accentuate. We’d love to try these looks for spring and summer’s hottest festivals!
Prints, prints, PRINTS! Diane von Furstenberg never fails us come fashion week—this time, she showcased colorful ladylike looks; each decked out in lovable prints. The colors ranged from black, green, pink, white, blue, yellow, and orange. The flirty silhouettes accentuate women’s bodies with pure sophistication. DVF’s runway show is a must-see! Her show time affirmation: “Be Happy, Be Sexy, Be the Woman You want to Be, SMILE.”
3. Alexander Wang
Alexander Wang’s 2015 runway pieces are very similar in structure to Meden’s collection. The solids, Y shapes necklines, and curved lines are alike; however, Wang’s looks are distinct in their textures. Many pieces were perforated and designed with sport in mind. In fact, Mr. Wang mentioned the “infatuation with sneakers right now” at the start of his show. The dresses were patterned similarly to the soles of sneakers. Some dresses were designed with a bit of flare for a feminine sporty touch.
4. Monique Lhuillier
Beautifully constructed, the Monique Lhuillier show was like watching gowns come out of a fairytale. The collection was something we can only imagine that Lauren Conrad would approve of, designed with delicate shades of pastels and beautiful embellishments giving off a luminous quality. The gowns were lightly colored in A-line silhouettes. The collection was entirely dreamlike with several silhouettes to choose from.
5. Alon Livne
This collection was risqué in a unique way, with black lines curving over and around the most revealing parts of the body. The pieces were evocative of Maleficent because of the darkness and exaggerated curves displayed. Strongly defined structure was prominent in Alon’s collection.
6. Carolina Herrera
Carolina outdid herself with her spring 2015 collection. Her designs were reminiscent of a botanical garden, laden with flowers, leaves, and plants. Other pieces, however, were solid colored, classic, and timeless. Here’s hoping a very fashionable someone wears a Carolina Herrera gown on the red carpet soon!
7. Tadashi Shoji
Feminine dresses galore at Tadashi Shoji. The lovely evening looks range in a variety of lengths from the knee down, flowing and exuding elegance. Sleeves and capes were essential to this collection, giving off a conservative look. The embroidery and textures were nicely adorned to finish off the looks with beauty and extravagance.
