With Fashion Week on the horizon, some of my favorite designers are offering sneak peeks to their collection and revealing the inspiration behind the looks. Check out sketches from some of New York Fashion Week’s best below. I’m so excited to see the full collections when they debut in the coming weeks! And stay tuned because, of course, I’ll be sharing them with you!
“The fall 2010 collection was inspired by a mixture of 70’s Parisian attitude and an urban New York City girl. With a renewed love for classic sportswear, silhouettes have been re-worked with a twist to give subtle edge on signature feminine designs. The palette includes dusty hues and new neutrals contrasted with military olives and hints of old gold. Fabrics are washed to provide a worn, overly-loved appeal and are combined with cashmere wool suits, leopard faux furs and down quilted coats, together giving this collection an affordable luxe quality.”
The inspiration for Nicole Miller’s upcoming collection comes from the “street.” In an exciting departure from her signature dresses (seen in her Spring 2010 collection
), Nicole Miller is venturing into menswear territory. This sketch reveals a style that’s posh and polished with smart shapes and clean lines.
“My fall 2010 collection is homage to the great women who traveled the globe in style.” – Elie Tahari, Designer
“For my fall collection, the artsy, chic girls of Paris’ Left Bank are my inspiration, in a combination of luxe fabrics, clever techniques and cool attitude.” – Michelle Smith, Designer
