NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Upcoming fashion trends that will soon appear in stores were being showcased in New York City this weekend.
The Capsule Show for women’s fashion began Sunday at Pier 94 along the Hudson River at 52nd Street. It is not open to the public, but CBS2’s Ilana Gold got inside.
Nearly 700 designers put their work on display for buyers at the show. They scoured through the racks to stock up on their stores for the fall.
The hot trends are taking on a so-called “girly look” with pastel colors. They are also full of big, bright patterns and quirky patterns like a dress that is covered in prints of lips.
“Something that starts a conversation is helpful — just fun, whimsical, even a little bit sill,” said designer Rachel Antonoff.
Designers have also experimented with unusual silhouettes; wide, flowy pants; and boxy coats. They are also using unique materials – among the items on display were a jumpsuit made of corduroy and jackets made of plastic.
“A lot of texture — you’ll see designers using faux fur; suede,” said Greg Armas of Assembly New York. “People are going by touch and feel more than a print of a color.”
When it comes to accessories, designers are going away from bulky statement pieces and instead they’re making them dainty. You will notice delicate necklaces and rings of gold and rose gold
“You can layer them; you can mix metals with rose gold and yellow gold,” said jewelry designer Ariel Gordon.
The capsule show runs through Tuesday for professionals.
