NY Fashion Week Round Up - Fall 2015

There's no escaping this frightful weather. The only option is to take a warm getaway and since that really isn't in my near future, I'll stick to hiding out indoors. Thank god for New York Fashion Week and the internet to cure my Winter Blues. I always love a good round up and thought I'd share my favorites from the past week. Which designers caught your eye?

He's been dazzling our hearts for a decade in the industry and each season he proves he's got ultimate staying power.  Lim took a bit of a different approach for his Fall collection and reflected on his brands aesthetic over the years. He created a new playful language by deconstructing himself. The key elements were front and center - vibrant takes on essential sportswear pieces, menswear-inspired tailoring with a feminine touch, and a street smart attitude. Lim worked all of these themes, emphasizing silhouettes that were a little haphazard, undefined, and free.

"I don't do years. I'm trying to go to the future" Carolina Herrera said right before her Fall 2015 runway show. She may be 76, but her designs are ageless. For Fall, her ideas explored the concept of water, and her approach were both literal and abstract. It was hard for me to separate my top 6 looks because everything was absolutely stunning. Each piece was modern, elegant and simply breathtaking in luxurious silk organzas and jacquards.

Can we talk about these incredible gowns? I sure hope one of them gets featured this weekend on the Oscar red carpet cause I need just one more look. Packham's inspiration for Fall was inspired by a trip to the Prado Museum in Madrid which gave her an up-close look at Spanish artists and their loose brushstrokes, dramatic themes and deeply saturated colors. Her main takeaways were lots of texture - lace, velvet, sequins in a plethora of sizes, specs of glitter and giant paillettes.

A little magic goes a long way and that is precisely what Deborah Lloyd, chief creative officer of Kate Spade had in store this season. The Fall collection drew inspiration from everyone's favorite whimsical writer Roald Dahl. His dazzling tales - Fantastic Mr. Fox and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory  translated the DNA of the brand perfectly. I can't wait to snag at least one of these fur-tastic pieces come September.
