Yellow is a color designers typically steer away from- steer away is an understatement- violently shun sounds better. However, despite the dreary weather, the runways were lit up with bright, warm golden hues. Used as an accent color, pops of sunny yellow were seen beside basic navy, greys, and earth tones.
Recently, 70s influence has had a huge influence in the fashion world. So it came as a surprise when designers, such as House of Perna, shown on the left, sent out models with styles inducing visions of poodle skirts and drive ins. The 50s influence was evident in pieces like ankle-length full bodied skirts, classic polka dots, and Mary Jane-inspired pumps.
Prohibition is over
Vintage inspiration did not stop with the 50s. Designers like PopImpressKA utilized long layered pearls and short, silky slip dresses, emulating the flapper image of the 20s.
Fur the Win
Colorful furs coming into the spotlight is a blessing in disguise, as temperatures dropped below zero during fashion week. Stepping outside the limits of just outerwear, furs were seen as trim accents, as well as embellishments on shoes and accessories.
