Trend Spotting New York Fashion Week: What to Look Forward to in style SP/SU ’15

Every few months fashion week rolls around, and with hundreds of designers showing in each city, it’s often hard to keep up! While digging through online reports I found the trends were resolving in groups of three. Here are some of my favorites from New York Fashion Week this SP/SU ’15 Ready-to-Wear season.


One of my favorite trends of the season is the mid calf length vest. It’s a piece that can be worked into any casual daytime or evening look. Designers from left to right: Thakoon, Creatures of Comfort, and Lacoste.


It seems the perfect spring/summer outerwear piece is a light-color, light-weight parka. The perfect mix of ready-to-wear and activewear elements. Designers from Left to Right: Rag & Bone, J.Crew, & Porenza Schouler.6 SURPLUS

It seems that the designers couldn’t get away from military/surplus motifs this season. One reoccurring element was the utilitarian patch pocket. Designers from Left to Right: Michael Kors, Victoria Beckham, & Marc Jacobs.


It’s always exciting to see old trends transform on the runway, this season the hot contemporary twist came in the form of Fringe!!! Designers from left to right: MM6, Porenza Schouler, & Thakoon.4 STRANGE FACES IN FAMILIAR PLACES

The following designers are making new acquaintances,  Introducing us face-to-face (or should I say face- to- digitally printed face). This trend includes some of our very own Parsons MFA alumni. Designers left to right: Hood by Air, Libertine, & Parsons MFA. 3 PLAIDS ON PLAIDS ON PLAIDS

Plaid never seems to leave the runway, but this season plaid was everywhere. Plaids, on plaids, on plaids. Designers from left to right: Costello Taglipietra, Duckie Brown, & Michael Kors


Finally, you might find your wardrobe next season a little more curvy than usual, as these curved seam details are popping up everywhere. Designers from left to right: 3.1 philip lim, 10 Crosby Derek Lam, & Karen Walker.

As the SP/SU ’15 season continues keep an eye out for these trends in other cities! But that’s my wrap-up of NYFW ! If you have any additional trends you’ve spotted this season from the runway feel free to leave a comment below.
