NYFW Spring 2014 – Day 6 we were all back in the tent except for Melissa’s offsite jaunt to shoot ICB in the afternoon. We covered lots of shows today for the trend report and for media footage. Maryna and Shalanda headed backstage at Badgley Mischka for behind-the-scenes footage and ran into John Legend and his girlfriend Chrissy Teigen. Backstage at Alon Livne, Arielle interviewed the namesake, Israeli designer, who started designing when he was 17. We covered backstage for Zang Toi, and wrapped up the evening attending the last show at 9pm by Fashion Shenzhen.
FIT/STYLE: A trend is a fad, a craze, the latest hotness, and a style that has been trending all week has been longer length in skirts in different fits: A-Line, Pencil, Drop-Waist, Assymetricals, and more!! There was very little deviation from this trend on Day 6. Jenny Packham, Badgely Mischka, & Naeem Khan sent feminine silhouettes down the runway displaying the variety in skirt styles. Alon Livne sent down warrior/Amazon princess inspired garments, that looked like each model was wearing an embellished breast plate and ready to go to battle! I loved it!
COLOR: As mentioned yesterday, more and more color is appearing, but the overall theme of whites, pastels, & other neutrals has still been the focus. Naeem Khan sent garments down the runway with a beige base, but colorful appliques:
PRINT/PATTERN: Mirror image prints were very popular on the Naeem Khan runway. Popular plaid returns on the Jenny Packham Runway.
EVENING WEAR/OCCASION: There was a prevalence of evening wear gowns showcased on Day 6 of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Almost every designer sent down a jaw-dropping stunner. A lot of fluidity in the gowns, with lots of movement. Long cape trains, and lots of fabric that billowed in the wind.
