NY Fashion Week Round Up - Spring 2015

I can't believe it is New York Fashion Week for Spring 2015 already. Just as the weather seems to be breaking and we are anticipating taking out our layered apparel, the fashion world is two giant steps ahead and showcasing Spring apparel for the following year. Like 2014, I keep refreshing the internet every minute to catch my favorite designs from the runways. Check out my top picks below. Which show has been your favorite?

According to the show notes, it was time to show your colors and paint the town with urban chic. Donna Karen did just that this season, and wow was it a big success. The designer focused on art, but mostly street art. Each look topped the next, all bold in their own light with different eclectic prints. This was a vibrantly desirable collection as silhouettes looked fresh - even the Pharrel inspired hats made all the outfits look chic.

When I dream, I want to be outfitted by Reem Acra's Spring 2015 Runway collection. It was full of fantasy, elegance of endless tulle, sparkle, and chiffon. Acra spends a lot of time in Paris, continually inspired by the draping and detailing mastered by mid-century couturiers. Although she claims that her designs this season were focused on women today and what they would be wearing, almost every single piece showcased that she would be wearing a whole lot of nothing! I'm ready to embrace the bare, if these are only silhouettes I have to pick from.

He has been making clothes for decades and never once feels repetitive or boring. Season after season, each piece that he produces is nothing short of ageless elegance. It makes you wonder how a man at 80 years old is nothing short of a timeless wonder. His recent resort collection showed a multitude of silhouettes ranging from lunchtime attire, to cocktail looks and to stunning black tie dresses. These are the clothes for the good life, which seems pretty close to reality if you ask me.

It has been years since I embraced a pair of signature Tory Burch ballet flats, and just when I was about to write her off completely I saw her Spring 2015 runway show. She describes her Spring collection in a couple different ways. First as "raw and refined" combining her bohemian-lit clothes and meshed beach-club standards with global cues and arty confidence. And lastly as "elegantly easy" which is showcased perfectly because she has a real skill for creating basic pieces that are a far cry from anything well, basic.
