This past week in the “Big Apple”, designers from all over the globe swarmed Manhattan to showcase the latest designs in fashion at New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Top designers like Gucci and Channel were present at the highly anticipated showcase, as well as up and coming brands like Laquan Smith. NYFW brought out the top models, celebrities, and media to cover the fashion-filled two weeks. No theme is particularly followed each year, but in 2017, patterns were the trend of this NYFW Season, both on and off the runway. It seems that the entire fashion world went mad for plaid!
Plaids, stripes, even polka dots were on display on the runways at NYFW. Patterns galore were also on the streets of New York City in between and before shows. Many fashionistas and NYFW affiliates showed off their street style in patterns, classical designs and stripes. Plaid skirts, striped suits, and all things pattern was the look to have at this year’s New York Fashion Week.
Designer Laquan Smith’s entire line this year gave a throwback school daze aesthetic which incorporated both patterns and plaids. Smith mixed his line with hints of plaid here and there while still involving solid pops of color. The color pops gave off a highlighting feel to the plaids, which fit the trend of this year perfectly.
