Maybe you don’t want Forever 21 and H&M to have enough time to replicate your designs and sell them as their own if you are a famous fashion designer. Designers are now going  straight to their source of revenue, the customers! There is no longer the long wait for the line to hit stores. In the end, it’s not what the fashion editor says that really matters, it’s what the brand’s customer buys. Critics are no longer able to influence consumers opinions before they see the line themselves . Customers can now develop their own opinions without much bias involved. Now, on the other side of the world this new idea has not been met with enthusiasm by all. Many designers in Europe feel that this new method takes the desire out of runway. I guess we are going to see more bloggers heading to Paris and Milan.  #fashionweek #nyfw #fashiontrends

4. In another nod to the Yves Saint Before that happened, Pierre Berge escorted Betty Catroux in, just like old times.

The 80’s influence could be seen in a variety of skintight cocktail dresses, jumpsuits, and pant sets with exaggerated shoulders, plunging necklines, cinched waists, poufed skirts, side-bows, and short hemlines.

Saint Laurent 16 turned out to be Hedi Slimane’s swan song at the storied fashion house, with last look, an incredible red fox fur heart shaped cape at the end of this show was his kick-off to fashion for the moment.
