Sew the Trends of New York Fashion Week


Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone, leaving us with a slew of old and new trends to look forward to sewing this year. Technically, these collections are for fall 2016 but we couldn’t help but notice that many of the pieces presented were springy in nature from skin-baring cocktail dresses to flowing off the shoulder tops that were ever-present this past summer. We can easily chalk this up to global warming or embrace that designers are coming to terms with a demanding customer base that want to shop the latest runway looks immediately rather than waiting six months.

Take a look at the top 10 trends we saw grace the New York runways and that we can’t wait to start making!
