"Rewind of the Finale Shows"
New York Fashion Week Highlights
Weds 14th & Thurs 15th Sept

The phrase "save the best till last" could not have been more appropriate as New York Fashion week draws to a close. 

Prestige Hollywood guests and collections exquisite and very High Fashion.
Here were some of my favourites.

Anna Sui's Spring 2012 with a vintage feel using lace, prints and going back to black. Accessorised with turn of the century large sun hats and models wearing bleach blonde hair contrasted with poppy red lips, I thought was absolutely lush. Definitely feeling some white lace and red lip fashion next Spring.

The show which got a standing ovation at 2pm in the theatre was Chado Ralph Rucci. Showcasing some very innovative designs. I was wowed at the diversity in the collection as was the crowd, seeing vogue editor stand and give an adoring hand. 

This full silhouette of kimono style black and white print gown is so high fashion, a piece that adopts that wow factor the type used to make an entrance and leave a long lasting unforgettable effect.

Tailored: Within the collection Rucci also showed his ability to constructively use tailoring. Demonstrating his skillet of traditional dress making and inviting a creative twist. 

Futuristic: "To infinity and beyond" as the collection ventures in to metallics another big trend of the now moving forward in to next spring.

Backless: Flesh being a trend you will see this season and next this backless piece plays with the idea of showing skin through your garment. 

Structured: Loving the use of fabric, length and structure. Again demonstrating a wide skill set in his production ability.

Layered: Its fluffy and chic and cleverly constructed. Trend setting for 2012.

The well respected Ralph Lauren doing two back to back runway shows at the Skylight studio in Soho. Started the final day from 10am - 12pm with the high end surroundings reflective of his classic constructed collection of evening gowns.

Pearly pinks being introduced on the New York Fashion week runway.

Ralph Lauren uses seductive silks which give these evening gowns a bedroom feel. Am sure we see some of Hollywood greats turning up in these on the red carpet next year.

Michael Kors took us on a safari with his Spring 2012 preview.

Bringing the summers cut out swimsuit trend into his 2012 collection.

Feathers again being a trend of yesteryear, one which am not sure will be embraced by the masses to the level it was last time around. 

Last show of the week at 6pm The Guli Fashion show was moved off site by invitation only. A truly exclusive way to end the weeks festivities.

Showcasing some original pieces and repeat trends such as metallics, it was a nice toned down show to wind down from a very vibrant and bold week in New York. What do you think bloggettes?
