Fashion & Decor - Style & Trends From NY Fashion Week

Many styles from the runways of New York Fashion Week this past February will be, if they haven't already, not only wondering into our wardrobe this coming Fall, but also merging its way into our home's decor. For starters: What had to be the most dominate color of designer collections was black - From the colorful designer Thom Browne to Donna Karan, to Alexander Wang to Calvin Klein, which in home furnishings, will appear as ebonized furniture finishes and black lamp shades. Other color palettes dominating the Fall / Winter 2015 runways were shades of grey - including matte silver and white, winter whites, hints of harvest gold,  black and gold, shades of teal and olive - sometimes paired together, and probably one of the most controversial colors this year - Pantone's Marsala, but bolder, richer, deeper shades of burgundy, merlot, along with a few red carpet moments with garnet...

 As with home decor, black and gold continues to make a strong statement on the runways. The more brushed metallic finish gives this look a more vintage feel -- and can also become beautiful inspiration for wall-coverings, especially for a statement powder room. Some terms of these applications you may hear are foil, flocked, brocade, lamé, jacquard.

NYFW - FW 2015 - Elegant Red Carpet Reds

Although some designers such as Tory Burch and Tommy Hilfiger, gave a rebirth to the 70s, the style was more modern bohemian than than hippie chick, the most notable nod to a style of years past  had to be the minimalism of the 90s - sharp, clean lines - more linear and almost architectural in their structure and design. Where previously we've seen more graphic patterns, now patterns are more 'tone-on-tone' for a cleaner aesthetic, leading the way to monochromatic wardrobes - and I'm sure will translate into into home furnishings, textiles, and interior design.

Monochromatic styling is excellent to use wen you want to create a soothing, tranquil, and sophisticated space, such as a master bedroom or master bathroom - and save the more graphic patterns for  common areas, such as a family room - unless you're wanting to make a big statement in a small space, such as an entryway or powder room.

Modern - Masculine - Monochromatic

Soft hide prints in a patchwork, such as this pencil skirt from Oscar de la Renta,  can also inspire a tile pattern like this marble one used here in this bathroom designed by Kelly Wearstler - featured at
This patchwork technique from the runways, can also be applied a technique in home decor called marquetry and parquetry - which is saw strongly featured during Las Vegas Market, and I'm curios to see if it makes its way over to the east coast for HPMKT...

Heading into a more minimalism direction for interior design, expect to see fewer stripes, including the over-used chevron. En lieu of stripes, the runway featured more of a play on high gloss vs flat finishes - including fur on metallics, and even tone-on-tone fur patchwork from techniques such as shreading & shearing - which is perfect for coats skirts and handbags, or for home furnishings as rugs, pillows or ottomans - I'm sure will be featured at retailers and High Point Market, come Fall. 

 As seen on the NYFW runway - Patchwork Fur.

 The softer side of some of the more masculine runway looks were seen playful but sophisticated rose patterns, which although these are for Fall, I believe will also transition in Spring 2016.

 I know I'm inspired to once again get my wardrobe and home in sync! Since some styles are re-born of years gone by, one destination source sure to already carry some of these silhouettes will be consignment and thrift stores. Knowing these looks ahead of time can help when seeking refresher pieces for your wardrobe - as well as act as act as an style indicator when sourcing pieces at the upcoming High Point Market this Spring. High Point Market is Fashion Week for the home furnishings industry. Since I'll be attending HPMKT for the first time, I'll be curious to see if some of the trends from the west carry over to the east...
