Yesterday was the last day of New York Fashion Week’s February 2017 show. Just as the showcase started, it also ended with a bang. The collections featured in this show all brought their own unique flare to help bring in the new trends of Fall 2017.
Vivienne Tam is known for creating designs that are known to reflect her chinese culture. Her designs also merge trends from the east with trends from the west. This Fall 2017 collection was no different. Tam used layers as a way to recreate chinese culture as well as chinese trends.
Most of Tam’s collection featured an assortment of designs all woven together. In some cases it was a dress layered with pants paired with a puffy jacket. In other cases it came in the literal mix of fabrics throughout the ensemble. One example of this is a dress that is drapped in sequins. One sleeve of the dress is also covered in sequin but the pattern and colors of the sequin are different. The other sleeve however features what looks to be woven cotton sleeve.
Another portion of Tam’s collection was one that spoke to sophistication. These outfits appeared to be simple but had aspects of them that made them pop. They wre fashion forward and look like something to be dawned on a night out on the town. The fierce ensembles came down the runway as if they were ready to take over the city. Tam’s designs were edgy and added a new outlook on what citywear is.
Marchesa’s collection was dress galore. Her collection featured dresses varying in length, style, and shape. Marchesa’s collection used floral patterns, feathers, satin, and sheer elements to grab the attention of the audience. The collection also used different styles such as ball gowns, mermaid dresses, empire waist dresses, and so many other styles of dresses. No matter what they style they dresses were absolutely stunning. Each dress had its own personality that worked well with the other dresses. Each dress stood out but did not over power each other. The collection also played with a wide variety of color patterns. The collection for the most part the collection used a forest color pallette, which fits in to the theme of fall.
