FASHIONWEEK Fall 2007: The Most Interesting Trends from the New York Shows. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG

New York isn't known for being the most creative of Fashionweeks; saleable, yes, but often lacking in imagination. However, enough important & trendsetting designers show here, that it's a precursor of what to expect from London, Milan and Paris.  This season, some 60s space age silhouettes and necklines still persisted, as did crayola bright tights a la 80s, but the more interesting trends included the predominance of beautiful-to-gorgeous grown up clothes for ladies, the surprising lack of jewelry, fur, color, gray dresses, slouchy/chic trousers, metallics (still!), hats - and the emergence of seasonless clothing & color palettes.

The Top 10 Most Interesting Trends from New York:

  1. Seasonless Clothing
  2. Black-clad Femme Fatale
  3. Fur
  4. Grey Dresses
  5. Slouchy-Chic, High-Waisted Trousers
  6. Metallics
  7. Color, Color & More Color
  8. Hats
  9. Spats
  10. Touches of Classic Red

I love color and how it makes any girl look refreshed and vibrant!!! Max Azria's nephew Sydney Azria just launched a cashmere clothing line that will be perfect to wear to the shows at Bryant Park. The great thing is that I don't want to be in black from head to toe. I want some color with LA flair that he does in his collection!!! You should do a feature on him... Los Angeles is eating him up and everything he does at the moment. He is great!! Perfect for fall in NYC.

Sydney Azria Son of Joie owner Serge Azria & nephew to major fashion house Max Azria of BCBG launches first collection that is the buzz around town! Exciting and fresh! He is the new generation of future fashion mogul!!! New York fashion Week loves him!
