Spring ’07 Fashions
By Lauren Dimet Suite 101
While it may seem very early to be thinking about spring fashion, some trends emerged that will start seeping into stores earlier than you think. Spring ’07 New York Fashion Week has ended. I know. You are thinking, why do I need to know in September what will be in next spring?
Well here is what every woman worth her fashionista salt needs to know. Fashion Week is the week when top fashion designers show their upcoming collections. Attended by buyers for major stores, the media, fashion stylists, stars and other wealthy clientele, this week has become the center of the fashion and entertainment industries. There are fashion weeks held around the world (London, Paris, Milan), but the most popular is New York’s fashion week. The shows take place twice a year. September for the following spring and February for the following fall.
Here are the emerging trends that sashayed down the runway that you can expect to see for Spring 2007:
Dresses they are once again the key ingredient for spring. You will continue to see babydoll, shift, kimono, wraps, jersey and sundresses, but adding to the mix are tent, sack, trapeze, (inverted triangle) and bell shapes
Skinny pants pants for spring are super tight drainpipe and ankle length. Think Audrey Hepburn. Paired with a boxy cropped jacket, the look is extraordinary.
Florals large or small print, appliquÃ©s, rosettes…they were all represented en masse.
Yellow unfortunately, the color that few can wear well is back in tones like marigold and buttercream.
Grey in lighter fabrics the hues range from charcoal to dove to slightly metallic.
Trenches you will see balloon and trapeze shapes, with large buttons.
Eyelet white or black was shown quite a bit.
Slouchy light gage cashmere sweaters and jackets are all rather loose.
Shorts Bermudas, walking and tap are back with a vengeance.
Pleats it looks like they are emerging again. They have been seen on skirts, dresses and yes, pants.
