8 Fashion & Decor Inspirations From New York Fashion Week

My favorite city in the world, also known as the fashion capital, New York City, has been host this week to the designer launches for Spring Summer 2015 collections during New York’s Fashion Week. Although I'm in Phoenix, I've been keeping up with the shows in New York thanks to a site I came across called nowfashion.com. Located in Paris, nowfashion.com is the first real time fashion photography magazine to publish exclusive live fashion shows, plus feature collections, show schedules, videos, and fashion boards. Of the over 160 shows, which kicked off last Wednesday and will run thru mid-day Thursday, September 11, I've been able to collect images from the Spring / Summer 2015 shows - which are great for tracking trends, upcoming styles, and colors - not just for fashion, but for interiors as well. In honor of New York Fashion Week, visit Hadley Court blog to read my guest post, Translating Trends For Timeless Interiors From New York Fashion Week, along with these eight inspirations below...

 Quintessential Merge of Fashion and Decor 
The above space was recently featured in Traditional Home magazine, featuring the home of CEO for Ann Taylor, which was also perfectly showcased on the runway for this dress from fashion designer Lela Rose.

Abstract Expressions

Just as with interiors and art, not all fashion styles are for everyone. Some may see a line and immediately want to ridicule its design, while others will see a line and are inspired by it. Inspiration can come from an intricate pattern, quality details, rich textures, or the use of certain color palettes – whether they are bold and graphic or subtle and sophisticated such as the Spring 2015 Collection from The Row...

Return To Minimalism

Many interior designers also look to the world of fashion for color cues and pattern combinations for their designs, from interiors to furniture design and even home decor lines. Pulling the thread together between fashion and interior design is also called lifestyle design: you wear it – you live it.

Show Me Your Stripes!

The lines featured this week during New York's Fashion Week are Ready To Wear lines (aka RTW) and are quieter and a little less dramatic as a Couture show, primarily because these are the lines which will end up in specialty shops, boutiques, and department stores. Some of the attendees for these fashion shows are buyers, merchandisers and store apparel designers,seeking inspirations and collaborations for their companies. Interior designers too can be inspired as to details to look for when attending the upcoming High Point Market in October – which is basically the “Fashion Week” for the furniture and interior design industries. 

Architectural Sophistication

I like the demilune bar-table placed in front of the mirror - doing this makes it into a whole round table. Great trick for a small space! 

Try a New Hue: Turn To Teal
This Derek Lam Spring 2015 leather dress is the perfect color inspiration for top to bottom lacquer treatment of millwork - from moldings to cabinets - as this
butler’s pantry is in the home of Miles Redd (painted Hague Blue by Farrow & Ball) featured in Elle Decor. Lacquer finished millwork is a growing trend in home decor and interior design.

And saturated color furnishings are also a trend I'm sure will continue to be spotted at High Point Market, coming up this October - in new hues, perhaps even in this teal.

Fashion: Carolina Herrera Spring 2015 Collection -  Space: Designed by Tobi Fairley.

Even if you're like me, and can't make it to New York (or upcoming London, Milan, and Paris) Fashion Weeks, you can still get your runway to room inspirations on line at sites such as nowfashion.com, online fashion magazines, Instagram, and of coarse, Pinterest.
