Adieu Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Hello Fall Winter 2011

Today marked the conclusion of New York Fashion Week.  I can only imagine the chaos and planning involved to bring this acclaimed event to fruition, but what I can say is that it successfully showcased the best of what’s in store for the remainder of the year.  Here are the designers that caught my eye:

Anna Sui

Proenza Schouler

Ralph Lauren

Monique Lhuillier

Michael Kors

Rebecca Minkoff

My favorite trends for this fall-winter season are the ethnic prints, vintage-inspired sleek and lean silhouettes, and the revival of fur apparel (whether faux or otherwise.)  I have noticed an upheaval of Native American, South American, and African patterns to come, and I’m extremely excited for other pocket-friendly designers to take notice and follow stride.  The romantic gowns shown above,  utilize delicate, slinky materials like chiffon and lace which fall on the body so beautifully, creating such a feminine look.  I adore it.
