With New York Fashion Week over and London Fashion Week in full swing i thought i would sum up my favourite collections from NYFW. I always think NYFW can be quite safe in terms of design (especially compared to London) however saying that Jeremy Scott does always produce some wacky collection that shocks. 
There are certain designers that produce beautiful collections every season from New York that i always have to check out and below are the collections that stood out for me. 

J.Crew 
The use of textures and prints within this collection was what really stood out for me, i loved the brocades against the chunky knits and the brushed mohair with the puffa jackets it a pairing that i wouldn't expect to work but it does and J.Crew have done it again, oh.. one day i will own one of their beautiful necklaces!




Proenza Schouler 
This collection really stood out for me, i loved the use of jacquards, volume, bright and bold prints,  and the emerald greens and cobalt blues that were weaved throughout the garments. The collection had a slight 80's influence, from the use of peplums and volumous shoulders, to the end of the collection where we saw metalics making an appearance through prints, and a strong use of many textures. 




Rodarte 
The final collection from NYFW that i really liked was Rodarte, i didn't feel that the collection was particularly cohesive, but it sure did impress; with coloured parkas, a heavy use of lace combined with embroidered mesh and embellishment and Star Wars printed silk gowns. I have to say i was not overly blown away by these gowns, but this could be due to not being a Star Wars fan in the slightest (no offence made to Star Wars fans). As side from that i love Rodarte's style and am seriously in love with those SPARKLY PARKAS! <3
