New York Fashion Week SS18 (Spring/Summer 2018) has come and gone, and we could not be more thrilled for the upcoming 2018 season. Collections seemed inspirational, yet wearable. Designers brought you into their world with elaborate catwalk sets such as Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma, and storybook presentations like cinq a sept.

Fashion continues to be an outlet for designers to express themselves and take a stand. Fashion can be an indication of the current times, and has, and always will be controversial. Alice + Olivia had statement tees with sayings such as, “The world needs more sparkle” and an Instagram worthy wall mural with the word “Feminist” graffitied repetitively in black and white. Designers are taking note of the feminist movement, and running with it. Menswear inspired pieces take over the runways, with some designers using it in an ironic manner. Girl Power has a totally new meaning this upcoming season.

We cannot forget the major revival of Juicy Couture. Ever since we saw the baby pink custom track skirt for Katy Perry; we could not wait to see what Jamie Mizrahi had up her sleeve once she was announced creative director. And hon-ey did she deliver! From the cut out track suits to the flowing, brightly colored skirts modern day Juicy gives you pieces that you can wear beyond the airport and nail salon. See for yourself in the photos below!
Tom Ford brought a 90s revival to the runway. Expertly cut jackets with padded shoulders were paired with plunge fronts, for a sexy and powerful look. He was the talk of the town, along with Tory Burch.
Tory Burch made a strong comeback this season. Her collections had become a bit stale in the past. What was once the hottest brand for every sorority girl, had become a mom brand that wanted to spend money on designer but only knew of Tory Burch because of her daughter. However, Spring 2018 is looking bright for Tory. A nod to the 1960s/70s, Tory Burch’s collection felt retro, yet fresh. Each playful patterned piece had a minimalistic feel, which makes us love it even more.
