(This is a post/ assignment from a current designers course)

A collection I really enjoyed from New York Fashion Week was the Aztec inspired designs from Badgley Mischka. Each look was accompanied by a red lip and slightly messy, yet, elegant up do. I enjoyed the feminine silhouettes and the simple designs. The collection used materials such as, organza, brocade, cashmere, wool, and jersey to name a few. The color palette was very dark minus a few pieces. There were three white gowns and a pencil skirt, three red dresses, a nude gown covered in sequins, and two oyster colored ensembles, while everything else was black, grey, dark green, and dark blue. The collection also used multiple patterns for many looks in the daytime looks.

From the London runways I enjoyed the color coordinated and simple yet structured looks from the designers Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton. The collection was titled Wintergate and was inspired by man-made objects. Looks were mostly metallic, a solid black, and a pop of bright yellow, black with metallic detailing, or off white with metallic detailing. Other looks that I enjoyed were feminine and edgy dresses that had warrior-like caged tops and geometric shapes that were flattering to the body.

The Fausto Puglisi, collection from the Milan runway was definitely an interesting one. A mixture of punk and strength. Using lots of leather, buckles, straps, plaids, and embroidered designs all in one outfit didn't make up the best looks. Instead the more simple looks with one bright color paired with leather and or strappy shoes was more eye catching. Not to mention the floor length dresses with waist high splits embroidered down the front panel also made my favorites list. What also sent these looks over the top were the powerful stances with legs spread apart, planted firmly, and hands bald into fists hanging down by their sides. Also with simple, yet bold statement hair of different lengths parted down the middle covering the faces of models.

Lanvin's collection that hit the Paris runway was filled with full skirts, which is a personal favorite. I loved the feminine looks with bold cuts and shapes paired with bold and chunky jewelry. Colors were very muted except for a dress with a full skirt and floral design.
