Prints, Floral, Colors and More

As Fall/Winter 2012 New York Fashion Week came to a close there has been a massive influx of trends we saw that hit the runway last week.  The three P's, prints, pattern's and pleats made their exceptional return on the runway joined by fall favs leather, lace, tweed, floral and supersaturated hues.

Who said florals were only for spring? Designers like Whitney Eve, Tory Burch, Diane Von Furstenberg, Eli Tahari and Carolina Herrera all incorporated gorgeous print and patterns into their immaculate collections without holding back. We took to the trends we saw walk down the runway and styled our looks for you exclusively from our NL Collective designers!

Whitney Eve, reality star and fashion designer Whitney Port's creation, debuted her Fall 2012 collection for the first time at Lincoln Center under the tents at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. She presented  26 looks which showed off her versatility as a fresh, young designer; from floral skirts, bright jewel-colored tops to the shimmering black  slacks her show was memorable.

Tory Burch revealed a very prim and proper, smart and seductive collection with a twist of a good girl gone wicked. With knitted tops, pencil skirts, a tight hand painted leather dress with plaid patterns, and tweed. We loved her fall/winter collection. Our very own Selahdor  and Amorette also took to tweed this season and produced a couple of show stoppers that would flatter any female figure.

The verdict is in prints, patterns, pleats and colors took  the runway by storm this season, like Harper Bazaar said " Don't discard your floral fantasies just yet, this season the trend continues with a high-octane dose of flower power". Now you know what's in and what's out!
