NYFW Spring/Summer 2012 Runway Fashion Forecast

New York Fashion Week Trend Report

White-Out, Colorful Suiting, Bold Prints and Neon lights.

Solid white looks with limited embellishments are standing out amongst their color-counter part. Styled with fur capelets and worn over streamline trousers. We especially love the showcasing of different textures that each garment seems to give the overall look.

Colorful tailored suiting in the form of single to multi-button down coats and blazers seem to be making a stand on the catwalk. While the cuts may refer back to the classics there is nothing traditional about the bold new hues.

Bold prints have taken apart of almost every designer showcase, from geometric lines to large floral to polka dots, you name it, it’s been done. These sixties and seventies inspired frocks seem to be on trend with what is currently debuting on fall T.V. With the resurgence of programs like AMC’s “Madmen” and the upcoming debut of “Pan Am”, its no wonder fashion is giving a nod to these previous eras.

Neon colors having been doing double duty by lighting up some of the designer catwalks. Colors in the form of electric yellow, hot pink, and bright orange have been fashioned to everything from high-waist shorts to skin-bearing tops and bottoms. Designers such as Nanette Lepore sent models out on the runway in head-to-toe neon looks including matching shoes and accessories.
