There are a few new things happening this fall as we ramp up for NYFW presenting Spring 2020.  As Diane von Furstenberg steps down as the CFDA chairman,  Tom Ford stepped in and one of his first acts as chairman was shortening NYFW from 7 days to 6 with a more compact schedule.  

Looking forward

Looking forward to what will be in store next spring there are fresh colors like mint, powder blue, and chiffon yellow.  In addition to these hues, suiting, leather, exaggerated shoulders, romance, bohemian, florals and appliques are among the top trends that will be showcased on the runway.  To be a trendsetter find ways to take these elements into transition and fall. Beginning next week, I will be showing looks that will help take the pieces you loved in summer and make them perfect for fall.  So, take the trends you see during Fashion Week, along with the inspiration I will be giving in the coming weeks, and bring them into your wardrobes this coming season.
