LIST: New York Fashion Week fall-winter 2017 trends
The New York Fashion Week (NYFW) fall-winter 2017 just capped off with hints of trends that could hit shopping racks in the months to come.
Suede, velvet, cold shoulders, leopard prints, polka dots, military green, patchwork, and ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s dressing are still in. But this season, the androgynous sports luxe, “athleisure” or athletic leisure trend that reigned last year has taken a backseat for fall-winter in New York this year.
Instead, there is a revival of the new romantic – think of feminine and opulent brocades, flowers, and bursts of summer colors, yes, for fall-winter!
Josie Natori, a Filipino-Japanese designer based in New York, presented a black, white, navy blue, red, and gold collection, accentuated with intricate tapestry prints, kimono-cut blazers, tattoo-embroidered stockings, and oversized, fan-shaped earrings.
Meanwhile, New York-based Filipino designer Monique Lhuillier showcased a fall 2017 read-to-wear collection with touches of elements she put into Dakota Johnson’s “Fifty Shades Darker” gown —ostrich feathers, capes, and subtle sexiness. The collection’s mostly black palette was broken by polka dots, ribbons, and pops of color and gold.
Other Filipino designers and brands that show collections at NYFW include Tina Maristela Ocampo of Celestina and Rafe Totengco under the brand name, Rafe New York.

School uniform plaid
While students try to inject casual clothes into their uniform, designers are doing just the opposite. Instead of looking at Britain’s highly technical and intricately woven plaids for inspiration, designers just glanced at a nearby schoolyard.
