New York Fashion Week – Fall/Winter 2014

Last week one of my colleagues came into the office commenting on how many attractive men she had seen during her walk to work. That led to a discussion among my female coworkers about how we had all noticed more beautiful men than usual walking the streets of New York. Then one of us realized why: they were male models in town for Fashion Week! THANK YOU FASHION WEEK!

Unfortunately, New York Fashion Week has now come to a close. Which means that the men are back to looking normal and all that we women have left is glamorous clothing. Which I suppose isn’t a terrible consolation prize!

For those of you unable to attend Fashion Week, I’ve narrowed down the important trends to give you everything you need to know for the fall/winter 2014 season. And just for fun I’ve made predictions on which gowns you will see on the Red Carpet at the Oscars!

Let’s start with color. Looking for a dress for your next white-tie ball? Gold was everywhere on the runway!

I LOVED this Badgley Mischka dress:

And I thought that the following also did gold well:

Reem Acra added black and white to the gold and wowed with this dress:

Pattern was also an important element of Fashion Week. My favorites included Wendy Nichol:

Monique Lhuillier impressed with her short, patterned lace dresses. I want every single one of these:

Zac Posen ordinarily stuns the audience with every creation, however this season I felt that some of his designs were too average. I did however like the unique cuts on the following:

Fur coats were everywhere, including BCBGMAXAZRIA:

Not a fan of fur? Chose a cape for your next coat instead, as seen in Pamella Roland:

And now for my Red Carpet preditions! This J Mendel dress flowed so well and looked gorgeous. It is bound to make an appearance on a Hollywood Red Carpet!

This Badgley Mischka dress is incredible. Mark my words, you will see it worn to the Oscars!

Finally, this Monique Lhuillier design literally made me gasp when I saw it. It won’t be long before we see it on a celebrity! Taylor Swift perhaps?

Sigh. Why can’t every week be Fashion Week?
