New York Fashion Week Spring 2009 Trends

Until the big overview released usually in Jan/February here are some of the spring 2009 trends highlighted at New York Fashion Week.

All-over frills and ruffles is still a big trend but what got my attention were these amazing sinuous tiered ruffles that call to mind exotic sea creatures.

Vera Wang's Lavender Label

The more affordable line from designer Vera Wang, the Lavender Label, had its first runway show, held on January 31st at Bobo, a town house restaurant in the West Village. Lavender Label's fall 2008 collection looks very lady-like with a fifties-sixties retro mood.

Rising stars at New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week saw some interesting collections brought by young labels like ADAM, Jason Wu and Rag&Bone. Adam Lippes is not new to the fashion world. Since his debut in 2004 the Adam + Eve label became well known and changed from a sportswear line to a casual-chic one.

For his fall 2008 collection, Adam Lippes chose to release the designs under his own name, in this way creating a new label: ADAM. The clothes may not seem unique but for me their sophisticated casual style looks very appealing. After all, Adam's career was shaped under the "tutory" of American classics Ralph Lauren and Oscar de la Renta.
