Spent today catching up with all the recent shows at New York Fashion Week and so thought I would do a blog post on my favorite shows. 
My first Favorite would be.. 


Marc by Marc Spring 12




Marc by Marc SS12 was full of tailoring and peplum shapes,the collection was vividly coloured and full of sophisticated cuts, it started with a series of suits and dresses every one full of colour and many in a tone of burnt orange. Then came fuchsia, then a rich hue of green, many of the pieces were teamed with navy to tone down the rich colours. The rest of the collection featured an array of red, blue and white stripes. The collection had a very preppy feel to it and I need a pair of those red trousers!




3.1 PHILLIP LIM Spring 12
My next favourite would be 3.1 Phillip Lim; full of soft, pastel tones loose tailoring and layering. The silk trouser was all over this catwalk, featuring a slouchy fit, and sports trouser vents on the side of the leg. I cant wait for these colours next season, I think soft shades are so flattering for all skin tones. 




Peter Som Spring 12
Peter Som's Spring 12 collection was in full bloom, and full of  blown up photos of multi coloured and blue toned roses. I love the finale pleated dress that flowed down the catwalk. This is one collection that really stands out in my mind from NYFW SS12, who really could forget those eye catching prints.  




D.V.F Spring 12
D.V.F Featured of course an array of different prints but focussing on florals, Florals are definitely going to be big for SS12! DVF focussed mainly on green and blue floral prints, and then moved on to more intricate prints on jumpers which were teamed with bermuda shorts. I do like the variety of this collection, but maybe too much of a variety of prints, what do you think?  




Rodarte Spring 12
And last but not least, one of my favourite designers Rodarte. The collection was inspired partly by the 1959 animated disney classic 'Sleeping Beauty' and by also Vincent Van Gough. The sisters fell for the greens and purples that feature in the animated Disney classic, and asked themselves who else used colours like that. They found the answer in the Dutch painter. The dresses which held a fifties look, featured inspiration from two of Van Gough's famous pieces, one of them - Sunflowers, painted in 1917 and Starry Night painted in 1989. I am a very big fan of this collection, the Mulleavy sisters are on top form yet again.
