The good, the bad, the scary, and the stunning. If you're looking for a Fashion Month recap you've come to the right place.
I have a lot of ground to cover today, so I'll just cut to the chase. Fashion Month is officially over and the 2014 Fall/Winter collections have gone down the runways in New York, London, Milan and Paris. It's time to look ahead to the Fall and the hot trends and cool designers we will all be coveting.
So lets dive right in.
New York Highlights: snow, a streaker, more snow, Coach 2.0, and celebrating 40 years of the wrap dress.
Rosie Assoulin is an up-and-coming designer who has proven in the past year that she is a force to be reckoned with. Although she is still the new kid on the block she commands the attention of international audiences with her unique, fashion forward and sculptured silhouettes. There has been major hype around her designs which I believe is fully deserved. Her collection was not only one of my favorite from NYC but from the entire month.

Burberry being one of them. The hand painted accessories and trench coats, belts, scarves, etc from the new collection are stunning and were a reminder of the resurgence of the hand made tradition. Shouldn't everything that costs upwards of 1K be hand made though?
Gucci wins in the category of convincing me to lift my life time ban on pink clothing. Although I'm currently still not wearing pink. It has to be head to toe Gucci in shades of blush, dusty rose and pale pink or its a no-go.
At Louis Vuitton Nicolas Ghesquière showed his debut collection, following in the beloved footsteps of Marc Jacobs he included a small tribute to his predecessor with mention in a letter every guest received before show.The show was the most anticipated of Paris fashion week and Nicolas did not disappoint.
And at Chanel, Karl took us to the supermarket to pick up some essentials: Chanel paper towels, a carton of Chanel eggs, a supermodel and a pop star. Will that be paper or plastic?
So, which collection did you dig? What trends will you be investing in or trying to emulate via more affordable means (aka Zara) come fall?
