There is always something so special when prêt-a-porter fashion weeks for the Fall-Winter collections begin. Starting with New York City, the city where the modern urban girl, lady or madam surrenders to her total love for fashion… Adore that!
From February 6th to the 13th, our beloved designers established in the Big Apple, enchanted their audiences, as always. Certainly, there were very special moments this 2014; as Donna Karan celebrated her 30 year anniversary in the business, Diane Von Furstenberg’s wrap-dress became 40, and the wonderful Venezuelan Carolina Herrera was honored by the Couture Council for her artistry in fashion… Pretty extraordinary, right?
But now, let us review a few of the TRENDS on the catwalks…
GORGEOUS COLORFUL FUR
One of my fashion obsessions (preferably faux, please), the fur, was seen in vibrant, gorgeous hues… Pure luxury, glamour and panache! (Images: Carolina Herrera & Dennis Basso)
From psychedelic, geometric to animal prints in coats, mini-dresses, full gowns, pants, jackets and even ‘total-looks’; PRINTS looked seriously divine on these runways! (Images: Desigual & Diane Von Furstenberg)
I simply adore XL pieces, they have become the clear evidence of the fact that many of us authentically live and dress ‘for fashion’… These oversize delights state our irreverence and passion for ‘la mode’! (Images: Calvin Klein & MM6 Maison Martin Margiela)
Designers get quite serious when it comes to BLACK being the main character of our Fall/Winter wardrobe… How can it not be, since BLACK is the epitome of ELEGANCE, and mostly of GOOD TASTE… We just adore it! (Images: Jill Stuart & Kaufmanfranco)
RED FOR PASSION
Is it because we feel charge with pure feminine, outrageous, beautiful spirit when we wear RED? Yes! And no need to deny it. RED makes us feel gorgeous; and since designers love to spoil us… RED was everywhere! (Iamges: Marissa Webb & Jenny Packham)
Is this fired-up BLUE our new companion forever and ever? I would say it is; because it turns us, no matter our skin color, body type or style, into sexy, stunning divas… What else can we ask for?! (Images: Donna Karan & Reem Acra)
CLEAN LINES MAGIC
Pieces with perfect CLEAN LINES were one strong trend; and to be honest, they should always be! They demonstrate the wonderful level of craftsmanship in designers’ ateliers. Clean lines are timeless, incredibly elegant and fit us like gloves, as they make our figures look splendid! (Images: Angel Sanchez & Carmen Marc Valvo)
True, we are modern women; but most of us still need that romance that make our lives worth living; especially when it comes to fashion. Of course, we were not forgotten in this respect; since we got plenty of deep but up-dated ROMANCE in New York runways… Just perfect! (Images: J. Mendel & Badgley Mischka)
One more thing, maybe the most important I might write and ask you today: Please #PRAYFORVENEZUELA! I thank you in advance! Love you all!
LIFE IS A RUNWAY!
