NYFW Spring 2010 was monumental not only for the amazing designs showcased, but it also marked the last year at Bryant Park for Mercedes-Benz Fashion week. At Bryant Park, the excitement of fashion was filled in the air, and the tents were packed to the Brim with fashions elite, designers, celebs, stylists, editors, journalists, retail buyers, models and photographers. The spring 2010 collections were fun, colorful, and edgy with a playful spirit.
A few of the major trends to look out for in the upcoming spring season are: Cutout shapes and slashes, mini bow accents, one shoulder dresses, tie and dye colors, splash paint colors, eyelets, lace and sheer materials. For your hair think light weight and low maintenance. A major trend for hair will be the Slick back look. With these pointers we are sure that our Clutch readers will be well equipped for spring.
Poodle Pusher was in attendance to view the latest spring collections from top designers, here are a few collections we loved:
Rachel Roy: This had to be one of our favorite collections; it was the perfect interpretation of the strong, bold and confident Rachel Roy woman fused with a sophisticated display of sex appeal. The show opened with pieces in a cool shade of grey and beige- a pantsuit, wrap dress and silk top that sizzled with a plunging neckline. The next section of the show was a burst of spring colors, in hues like turquoise, fuchsia, and fluorescent yellow that all worked magnificently together. Black was the closing color of choice in strong pieces like a cropped jacket, a wrap lace dress top and skirt and a one shoulder body suit with ruffles. Rachel Roy’s latest collection was absolutely astounding, and is one that appeals to all women!!!

Port 1961: Tia Cibani’s spring 2010 collection was titled Fluere. Sheer, silk and organza materials in subtle colors like lilac, baby blue, salmon, cream and soft peach colors were met on the runway with a splash of vibrant orange. The mood of the collection was relaxed with a confident elegance that gave a serene Japanese inspired touch with ballet flats, kimono styled dresses and Kabuki inspired belts.

Monique Lhuillier Opted for a more intimate and smaller presentation outside of the tents this year, however her collection was grand in nature.

Alexander Wang: This was definitely one of the most talked about show of the season. Alexander Wang did something unconventional and abnormal from his usual black and white sexy look we’ve grown accustomed to seeing from him. He brought to the forefront a sporty, cool athletic girl with an added feminine chic. With inspirations from an all American football team it was amazing to see how he reinvented the idea of a traditional football uniform. The layering and use of different textures of leather and fabric was magnificent and re-inventive.
