The whirlwind of the international fashion weeks wrapped to a close early last month with its last leg in Paris. Though real life doesn't allow many of us to be present at every single coveted show, with the new technology most designers are adopting, we can almost be front row of every show without ever leaving the comfort of our sofas via streams, critics, and bloggers.
Each designer has his or her own vision and inspiration, but some trends and themes seemed to flow throughout the shows. The rise of the machines is truly visible as designers try to capture a snapshot of an ever-changing landscape thru structured designs, studded details, and clean lines mimicking the sharpness of technology.
The soft and pastel spring palettes is a thing of the past as bold yellows, oranges, and greens made their presence known in the newly presented spring collections. This is also echoed in the strong showing of metallic and black that seems darker than the usual for spring but nevertheless was seamless when presented.
I am very excited to see in the upcoming months of what trends will flow into the kids' wear department as we gear up for our next buying season starting in mid-January.
