My Favorites from NYFW SS16

New York Fashion Week - Spring/Summer 2016

Twice a year designers show us their upcoming collections during NYFW (New York Fashion Week) and we get a sneak peek of the newest trends. If you're a fashionista like me, it's one of the most exciting times of the year. 

With social media apps such as Periscope and Snapchat, it made us feel as if we were more a part of the NYFW than ever before. I was excited to see a lot of 70's fashion as well as really cool patterns/stitching and bright colors.  

Here are some of my favorite looks from the week (they are in no particular order):

All of the outfits from Delpozo showed lots of detail and floral embroideries. I happened to love this dress the moment I saw it. It reminds me of a fairy princess.

Diane Von Furstenberg
DVF's collection was one of my favorites from all of NYFW. The top models in the industry walked the runway: Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Lily Aldridge, etc. 
Diane said that the collection was originally inspired by a painting of hers that shows a woman barefoot in nature. She wanted to celebrate and showcase freedom and the individuality of the woman. The models' hair was inspired by the 70's and reminded the designer of herself back at Studio 54.   

Ralph Lauren:
As always, Ralph Lauren's collection had a classic and all American feel to it. This was one of my favorite outfits...A casual but classy and sophisticated look. 

Jeremy Scott:
This was such a fun and lively show. I keep coming back to this piece. Something about the colors and its  unique feel to it!

Carolina Herrera:
I am obsessed with the entire Carolina Herrera SS16 collection. It was flirty and feminine and featured lots of pinks and cream colors. 

Romantic and breathtaking is how I would describe Marchesa's collection. This collection was inspired by exotic birds and was shown through a multitude of colors and fluffy skirts. 

Lauren Conrad:
This was Lauren's debut on the runway and her collection spoke for itself.  It has a vintage feel with fashions from the 60's and 70's.
My favorite part about this collection? It is being sold, at a reasonable price with her normal line at Kohl's.

Rebecca Minkoff:
Normally when I think Rebecca Minkoff, I think of handbags, but after seeing her upcoming collection, I am now equally in love with her clothes. Minkoff said that her collection was inspired by singer Marianne Faithfull who has a boho 60's vibe. 

What were your favorites from NYFW? 

Until next time!
