With the crystal snow blowing down from the cloudy winter sky…
With the chilly winds dropping the temperatures on the busy New York City streets…
New York Fashion Week continued on with a power and force that is undeniable.
For this Fall 2014 fashion week season, NYC was able to look past the frigid, bad weather and move forward, producing collections that were memorable in their design, structure, and individuality. On the runway, the weather forecasts were long forgotten, as warm energy rushed around in the atmosphere of fashion, creating an aura of strength and beauty. The collections this season are truly stunning in their wide array of unique elements, in their abilities to minimize and maximize, to look to the past, as well as look toward the future. Whether it is Diane Von Furstenberg’s bright, exciting collection of retro and modern flowers and golden dresses or Vera Wang’s dark, romantic collection of natural and stunning designs, the fashions of this Fall 2014 New York Fashion Week season are simply beautiful.
Diane Von Furstenberg
In this collection, Furstenberg beautifully combines what is retro and modern to form fashions that are brightly joyful and full of charming, wild fun. The fashions have within them this inherent zestful energy, this wonderful presence of excitement and thrill. Each fashion that walked down the runway holds within it this loudness, this ability to transfix the viewer on their retro prints and modern twists. With a focus on floral elements, a unique array of colorful, printed flowers were presented along with the other brilliant geometric lines and shapes. Besides these fantastic, cheery fashions, there were also a breathtaking collection of energetic, gold dresses presented. These golden dresses hold within them that same charming fun with touches of redefined regality, as well.
With wrap dresses and shirts of fun, bold prints, airy blouses, creative sweaters, short and long printed outerwear coats, knee-length and longer skirts, fearless colored pants, joyous dresses and short golden gowns with shimmering, scalloped edges and v-cuts of lace and brocade details…with satin, fur, velvet, and sheer…with geometric, flowered, and star prints, with colors of black, gray, gold, red, purple, blue, yellow, maroon, pink, orange, and gold…All the fashions glistened in a magnificent way and gave off this feeling of thrill that was spectacular.
With a transfixing, mysterious darkness that traveled within each fashion on the runway, with untamed elegance, sensual mystery, and natural sentiment and beauty, Vera Wang’s Fall 2014 collection is mesmerizing in its breathtaking midnight hued romanticism. The designs carry within them this magical, naturalistic quality. There is this closeness to the untamed environment, to this raw expression and vitality. The designs carry within them this wide array of deep, obscure emotions. Within the fashions, an unmistakable passion is heightened, a captivating eeriness is strengthened. There is something hidden within the fashion, some fascinating secret, some impenetrable, dark vision.
With a dark color palette of gray, black, moss-green, navy blue, and dark brown, this collection of black outerwear coats, of plaid suits, dresses, skirts, pants, sweaters, and button downs, of shadowy leather shirts, skirts, pants, jackets, and gloves, of water colored, flowered sheer gowns and long skirts, of naturalistically embellished knee-length skirts and tops, of shimmering dresses, of glistening, matching black blazers, of dark stunning gowns of breathtaking elegance with sheer and lace details, of brooches of nature’s creations, and of fur vests and scarfs, these fashions of Wang’s Fall 2014 collection were spectacular.
The chilly New York City air marvelously disappeared this Fall 2014 New York Fashion Week season.
