OBSERVING THE TRENDS AT NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
In New York City every February and September there is one week dedicated solely to fashion. It is a time for clothing designers and models to show off the latest trends in the industry to potential buyers, media, and the public audience that lines the streets. This September I decided to make the trip to see up close the latest styles that are currently popular in our culture.
A trend that immediately stood out was the desire to wear vibrant pieces of clothing. Especially in the case of the women, the far majority of outfits were vivid with interesting color patterns and designs. In the situations where this was not the case, they most often had a flashy accessory in the form of a bright purse, reflective sunglasses, a gaudy hat, or anything of the like. Red in particular was heavily present in a large percentage of the overall outfits and accessories.
On a similar note, another prevalent fad was colorfully dyed hair, which was commonly observed for both men and women. Unlike many people who dye their hair regularly, the models participating in Fashion Week used colors that were totally unnatural. For example, green and purple were prominently featured throughout the week.
