Love it or hate it, like art and interior design, fashion is subject to public opinion. And that public opinion roots itself during the launch of the bi-annually held New York Fashion Week. Always featuring a season ahead - colors, patterns, textures, and silhouettes will begin to make their way down the catwalk for this year's Fall / Winter RTW (Ready-To-Wear) lines today, the start of New York Fashion Week. In attendance will be celebrities, magazine editors, buyers, and even a few future fashion designers getting the chance to see their fashion idols, such as Jason Wu, or the icons in the fashion industry such as Carolina Herrera and Ralph Lauren, as well as pay homage to icons of the past such as Oscar de la Renta - who is still just as relevant today. Although we may not have received an invitation to attend, thanks to social media and technology, we can watch these shows, streaming real-time from many online sites -- but my personal favorite site to view these shows on is at

Besides streaming videos of highlighted shows, nowFashion features real-time photographs as a slideshow presentation, making it an excellent source to pin (sample some of my fashion week pins at NYFW SS215) and share your favorites from to your other social media connections (for example Twitter).

Just like art, not every style is everyone's cup of tea, but with a schedule posted at nowFashion, it makes it easier to follow in real-time, or come back to click thru later wen you have the time. Although subject to change, here is the Fall / Winter line up (from nowFashion), kicking off NYFW today February 12, running through Thursday February 19. Be sure to check back to nowFashion to read line reviews, watch videos, view slides, and see any of the latest schedule changes...

Back in September was NYFW Spring/Summer 2015, which even with all the snow falling down, is making its way to department stores, showrooms, and specialty shops near you - plus you'll also start to see Spring / Summer ad campaigns on billboards, on websites, and it print magazines. 

Strong statement from the Spring / Summer runways will also be a popular  home decor print.

These fashion palettes also play a very important role for influencing our choices for home decor - from textiles to paint - which will be interesting to see how these runway trends will translate into our rooms. To see just how some of these runway looks find their way into styling our home, you may enjoy reading my post at Hadley Court - New York Fashion Week Trends Translated Into Timeless Interiors plus also see additional design duets and previous blog posts featured in my new blog tab above, Fashion & Decor.

I'm excited to see NYFW - FW2015!!
