New York Fashion Week Trend Report: Day 5

We have reached the half-way point of New York Fashion Week? Tired yet? Of course not! One can never get enough of amazing fashions, and the collections presented on Day 5 do not disappoint. From ethereal looks at Alon Livne to classic silhouettes at Carolina Herrera, there was something for everyone!

Carolina Herrera had a pretty diverse color palette.  Her collection started off with dark shades of blue and burgundy and evolved to a few mustard yellow & vibrant red pieces.  While Carolina focused on dark, vibrant hues, the ladies behind Noon byNoor presented an Easter palette of colors down the runway.  Pastels are really having a moment for 2014 with no sign of stopping any time soon. It’s definitely a big transition from darker hues for the Fall & Winter.  Angel Sanchez’s collection was fairly monochromatic with looks in one color at a time.

Carolina Herrera’s collection showcased a substantial amount of volume from oversized coats to exaggerated sleeves.   Her looks were really enjoyable to watch coming down the runway.    Carolina’s skirts and dresses either hit right at the knee or floor length in classy and chic Carolina Herrera style.  AngelSanchez’s uber-feminine dresses & gowns were very powerful. Any woman in one of his designs would command attention when she walked in the room.
