#NYFW Spring 2017 Preview - Fashion Designer Sketches

New York Fashion Week Spring 2017 begins! Summer is over when I pack up my gear and forget what sleep feels like when I get into the NYFW grind. For the designers, they likely have not slept for the past two months in chasing samples, organizing looks, casting models, etc. just for your sartorial entertainment.

For a sneak peek into the fashion shows Ms. Fabulous will be covering this season, you just need to peruse the fashion design sketches above. Both Tadashi Shoji and Son Jung Wan had high contrast red and white on the brain. Tadashi Shoji's muse was the idea of "reincarnation". What that means specifically, I can only guess. Does his muse find herself reincarnated from a leopard based on that animal print? Son Jung Wan is also reliving the past with a 1970's look. She takes her inspiration from the dramatic silhouettes and glamor of the era.

Leanne Marshall (center) submitted a beautiful watercolor fashion illustration. Her theme was dance and the shimmering qualities of crystal stones. Desigual (top left) will be featuring sequin embroidery and other 3D graphic elements on top of tie-dyed denim. Below that is the look of "modern feminity" from sister designers Shaikha Noor Al Khalifa and Shaikha Haya Al Khalifa of Noon by NoorTaoray Wang's soft, but tailored look was inspired by the smooth pebbles of Kyoto's gardens juxtaposed against the sleek urban edges of NYC's skyscrapers. On the right side, Nicole Miller mixes a different city with New York, Panama. She is blending the textures and colors of traditional Panama with the modernity of Gotham. The simple line sketch of Vicky Zhang is a romantic silhouette. Her inspiration this season was just to nestle into love.

So are you ready for the parade of spring 2017 fashion we will bring you? New York Fashion Week, here we come.
