Impressions From Fashion Week

New York’s Fashion Week wrapped up Wednesday with hundreds of designers debuting their latest collections. There to check out the latest trends you can expect to see in stores next Spring was InStyle magazine’s Katrina Szish.

Katrina reports femininity is back, and with it the hourglass figure. Gone are shapeless shifts and babydoll dresses. What made headlines at the Spring 2008 shows were the ethereal gowns, belted trousers, and sheer fabrics. Dressing up with a practical but perfect ladylike bag is also back.

“Designers had been sporty last spring, a little bit pretty,” Szish told The Early Show co anchor Hannah Storm. “This season, they’ve gone back to femininity, to sophistication, to elegance. So everyone’s going to have to get ready to dress up again.”The Belted/Cinched Waist

A backlash to the shapeless trapeze dress seems to have materialized in the form of a whittled waistline. Everything is belted, thin, wide and otherwise! This includes suits, jackets, sweaters, high waisted trousers, and evening gowns. The clear message here: femininity is back . show off those curves!Designers had exotic destinations on the brain and it showed up in graphic, tribal patterns on dresses, skirts and tops. Summer 2007 was about preppy

stripes, but Summer 2008 is headed in a much wilder direction.

White and Bold Colors

Many designers focused on spring cleaning: WHITE even head to toe was rampant on the runways. Seventies (Michael Kors) and 80’s inspired (LAMB) asymmetrical necklines showed up on tops, day dresses and eveningwear. This trend seems to have no limit on age or attitude. Designers from Gwen Stefani to Oscar de la Renta re interpreted this fresh, new neckline.

Long, Flowing Floral Dresses

Designers were still inspired by dresses, but gone were the babydoll and trapeze dresses we’ve been wearing for the past couple seasons. In their place were floor grazing, flowing floral dresses, for both day and night.


The must have bag for Spring ’08 is practical, it’s no longer about a precious piece. But, that doesn’t mean it’s not luxurious. Oscar de la Renta made his practical bag feminine with ruffle details that give it that elusive it bag quality. Conversely, shoes are all about the “Wow” factor. Whether architecturally sculpted (Marc Jacobs), Birkenstocks with surprising flair (Phillip Lim), an exotic skin slingback, or a delicate flat, strappy sandal in metallic gold, a double take shoe is an essential.
