What Are The Expectations From NYFW SS14?

Trends:

The obvious expectation will be Trend forecasters predicting what the trend will be in spring/summer 2014. Fashion often repeats itself or at least improves from the previous fashion era.

Spring 2014 will see more of floral, prints, pastel combinations, patterns and a lot of mismatched colours and colour blocking. It is not surprising that this trend is a reflection of the spring season with the emerging of flowers and various outdoor activities.

I suspect we will see a continuation of resort (wear) — big florals, art-inspired prints, offbeat pastel combinations and architecturally minded separates and sportswear-inspired ideas,” predicts Anne Slowey, fashion news editor of Elle Magazine.

Flora and fauna will be flourishing, even in mismatched patterns on top and bottoms.

Expect to see fresh colours, more of baggy, breezy and loose trousers.

The Fashion Week will be about Fashion gossips, Street Styles, anniversaries, and fashionistas. People will be tweeting and instagramming what they have seen at the event, thanks to the technology, which has made this possible.

The crowds gathering outside every show venue hoping for Scott ‘The Sartorialist’ Shuman to march them off to a quiet well-lit corner to be snapped, are a can’t-look-away vision of chic, perfectly put-together outfits mashed up with looks…

Anniversaries:

This year’s event will be a milestone for some of the famous fashion designers.

In New York, DKNY will celebrate a whopping 25 years while over at Calvin Klein, Francisco Costa has racked up ten years overseeing the super brand.

Styles:
