NYFW kick started with a snow storm strong enough to keep the average Eskimo indoors, however Fashion Week designers and runway starlets managed to rise above mother nature to bring us the anticipated fashion presentation of autumn and winter 2013/2014. Across the 8 days the catwalk showcased a strong sense of powering dressing with pencil skirts, blazers and cigarette pants featuring throughout the majority of designer looks. Sharp tailoring, accentuated waistlines and lots of layering played a big role on the catwalk which really appealed to me as they were all easily wearable pieces.
Feminine accents of floral prints were a popular feature. Oscar De La Renta went for an Asian floral vibe with contrasting colours which really stood out. My Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang favourites look like future red carpet hits with a beautiful choice of purples and softer floral prints. Marc Jacobs displayed various styles of the same pattern with a combination of shapeless to figure hugging pieces.
