Are we ready for New York Fashion Week? The fashion designers certainly are. They have worked long and hard to put together the best collection yet for fall 2015. Here is a fashion week preview for the collections soon to be featured on Ms. Fabulous based on their lovely fashion sketches.
That moody yellow dress sketch comes from Angel Sanchez. For his show, he is “revisiting eveningwear, offering a fresh approach for today’s women.”
One of my favorites every season at Mercedes-Benz Fashion week is the Desigual show. Christian Lacroix is working his signature color and silhouettes. For fall, the designer was inspired by everything from a travel photograph from Africa, fields of flowers and turning it all into an abstract work of fashion art. I can't wait!
Vivienne Tam is the queen of contemporary Chinoiserie on the runway. For her upcoming collection though, she is interpreting it from the eye of when Europeans were first inspired by early Asian art and culture. I think I see some early century silhouettes in that black dress with Victorian fusion embroidery? You'll see soon enough.
Fashion sketches show a season of rich texture and color:
Cool chick Rebecca Minkoff is spotlighting rocker Patti Smith has her muse for fall 2015. I guess this means we are in store for a lot of 70s inspired bohemian looks on the runway. Project Runway all-star Christian Siriano is set to make more dreamy ballgowns. He's going for primal sexy with a collection filled with animal prints, python texture with inspiration from the Congo jungle.
Based on this detailed purple dress sketch from Monique Lhuillier, there will be lots of gorgeous embroidery for fall 2015. She designed her collection juxtaposing strong masculine tailored shapes with fluid feminine silhouettes. Dennis Basso is offering another rich evening wear collection. This one looks romantic with the oversized red roses and intricately beaded bodice in his sketch.
Leave me a comment below on which designer you are most excited to see and you might win an invitation to the show!
