#NYFW Preview: Designer Sketchbook for Spring 2015

Are you ready for New York Fashion Week?  I peeked at the designer sketchbooks at their fashion sketches to preview what they will be showing in the days to come…
Don O’Neill of THEIA took his muse from Brazilian architect Oscar Neimeyer, specifically the curvilinear lines of his buildings.  Christian Lacroix once again graces Desigual with his bold, graphic colors with the inspiration of "bloom".
Korean designer Son Jung Wan’s spring collection was all about “tangible dualities: rough-textured fabrics like hemp cross soft, sinuous silhouettes.”  Her collection always has a beautiful mix of colors and textures. Colleague Ji Oh simply stated that playing it safe was dangerous. I expect some edgy shapes and attitude from these models.
Angel Sanchez claims to have found a new woman as muse.  His spring collection will be playing on the effects of light.  Based on his sketch, it looks like bright white peeking through sheer fabrics will be on the runway. 
Zang Toi celebrates his silver anniversary this season.  That’s 25 years of aristocratic glamour.  Based on his sketch wall, sweeping, dramatic gown are in store… I saw one sketch with style details that included merino wool and 13 hand-beaded emblems.  I think everyone is in for a treat at this catwalk.
The team at Custo Barcelona described their muse as "skin".  From their colorful patchwork of sketches, I am guessing their spring collection will be about organic textures inspired by nature, but executed in their signature bright palettes.  Christian Siriano's sketch represents transparency.  I think we can look forward to more layers of sheer fabrics.   Dennis Basso described his spring collection as "sumptuous" with the Mediterranean as his inspiration.  I think we're in for rich embellishments and lush silhouettes.

Which designer are you most looking forward to seeing at New York Fashion Week?
