NY Fashion Week Preview: Spring 2014 Sketchbook

 New York's style set is taking over the city later this week.  What do the New York Fashion Week runways have in store for us?  Check out the fashion sketches from your favorite #NYFW designers to see where there inspiration comes from.

Tracy Reese is making a bold, graphic color statement for Spring 2014.  She has an Afro-Cuban vibe going for this collection.  Look for raffia and tribal embroideries and bonded knits.

Ann Yee's muse is more abstract.  She was moved by the destruction, then resurgence of the city of Detroit.  What that means in the practical sense is that the metallic elements of the collection will represent the auto industry and the constructed angles represent the crumbling architecture.

Son Jung Wan's watercolor sketch shows the sunny Saharan Dessert and the inspiration of Moroccan cities.

 There is a lot of design diversity for Spring 2014.  Desigual will have plenty of mixed graphic prints as they are known for.  Pamella Roland looked to the glamour of Cannes in the 1960's for her polished beach look.  Mara Hoffman has bright, jungle tribal prints in store for us on her runway.

Herve Leger looks like there will be some seriously sexy silhouettes in their spring collection.  Body curve framing lines mixed with revealing slits are bringing the heat!
 Cool color palettes are in for Tadashi Shoji's collection.  It looks like cocktail frocks with layered embroideries will be chic for the red carpet.  Sachin & Babi only listed "Magnolia" as their muse.  I'm not sure if that's merely the flower, or the artsy movie starring Tom Cruise from 1999.

Daisy Fuentes is bringing California chic to her NY catwalk.  She wants to show how luxury can be effortless.  Rebecca Minkoff looked to fierce Latin-American women as her muse for spring 2014.  Think Bianca Jagger pre-Studio 54 days.

Which designer are you most looking forward to for NY Fashion Week?
