New York Fashion Week SS13.

It is that time again where Designers showcase their collection for the coming Spring/Summer season.  While there was a sense of horizontal and vertical stripes domination of the shows, the Marchesa girls wowed with their Indian inspired collection. Over all collections this time round were not only breathtaking, colourful and flirty but also ethereal. Here are some of the trends forecast for next season as seen on the New York Fashion Week Runways.

Maxi Mania. Beautiful gorgeous maxis in an assortment of colours floated down the runway of Alice+Olivia and Donna Karan in various shades of blue, polka dots and mint.

Stripes. Vertical and horizontal stripes dominated the catwalk from designers like Michael Kors, Narcisso Rodriguez as well as Tommy Hilfiger making Stripes one of the most powerful trend to look out for.

All in the bead work. Theyskens, BadgleyMishka and Marchesa could not resist the beauty of beautifully crafted bead work in most of their romantic gorgeous gown collections.

Sporty Chic. Sports inspired creations featured in Marc by Marc Jacobs, Lacoste and Rebecca Antanoff prove you don’t need to play sports to rock the sporty look.

 Prints and Patterns. Looks like prints and patterns are here to stay for awhile at least. They dominated during the Derek Lam, Philip Lim and Anna Sui runway shows amongst others.

Black and White. When in doubt, a black and white ensemble never goes wrong as shown by Jason Wu and Rachel Zoe on the runway.

Cut Outs. A carryover trend from the SS12 collections. Vivienne Tam and Alexander Wang proved that cut outs are one of the sexiest ways to show a bit of skin without looking trashy.

Denim. This fashion classic has had an overhaul in washes and wear on the catwalks of Tibi, Marc Jacobs and DKNY. DKNY gave denim a modern and updated twist as the pieces were more dressed up and chic.

Bra Tops. The fashion week runways have been awash with a lot of midriff bearing Bra tops from Charlotte Ronson and Rebecca Minkoff collections. Better get those abs toned and tight for this skin bearing trend.

Monochrome. There is a return of the monochromatic trend in whites, neutrals and all black collections seen at Tadashi Shoji, Richard Chai and BCBG.
