New York’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week kicked off yesterday with big names like BCBGMAXAZRIA, Perry Ellis and Nicole Miller. So far, it looks like spring is going to be all about interesting necklines, grecian-inspired flowing fabrics, and an interesting mix of black, grey, purple and orange palettes. Mini and Maxi dresses were shown in most of the shows with strappy sandals in every color. Below are some of my favorites from the first day of Fashion Week:
BCBG Max Azria styled a one strap dress over a striped shirt dress, creating a feminine but casual look with yellow gladiator heels.
Above left, Michael Angel used a beautiful pattern of greys, black and purple to create this sweeping dress. Nicole Miller created the patterned dress on the right that hugs the lines of the body a little more than Micheal Angel’s Dress. Flowing styles like these have already been seen by multiple designers during the first day of fashion week.
BCBG Max Azria also showed this red, draped mini dress. The bottom is similar to some of the styles he has shown in his Herve Leger lines.
Fashion Week continues through next Friday so check back for more great highlights!
