Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. Fall 2013 Collections

The whole fashion world including inveterate fashionistas, models and designers is in such a state of excitement in anticipation of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: the first are anxious about to see the upcoming trends while the second are nervous about how the show will come out.

Today, February 7, is the first day of the show where you could see Fall 2013 collections of such designers as Nicholas K, Todd Snyder, BCBGMAXAZRIA, Tadashi Shoji, Timo Weiland Women’s to name a few and even more coming soon (overall there are 90 designers to show off their collections). Elie Tahari Fall 2013 collection is scheduled for February 12, 5:30 PM at 510 5th Avenue. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

Not much is know about his collection, only the choice of colors which are “of the urban landscape”; they are green, navy, slate and carbon. As you know Elie Tahari focuses on business ladies striving for classic styles, so I’m sure there will be lots of trousers costumes, jackets, some dresses and I hope fur details. Want to see his handbags, too. But this is only my guesswork. While famed Jewish designer is putting final touches, let’s stop on what has been showed today.

Nicholas K had a gray collection, not in a sense of designs but color palette. I think this is the color choice for the season. Dark gloomy colors are normally associated with autumn, so the choice of it is evident. Dense fabrics, lots of leather details. This was casual urban clothing with many asymmetrical loose designs. Nice but it lacks some spice probably, too depressive for me.

Amazingly womanish Fall 2013 collection was presented by Tadashi Shoji today! Dresses, lots of them! There were only two models wearing trousers, the rest were beautifying the podium with eye-catching mid to long dresses. Maxi dresses were in plenty. Light flowy chiffon fabrics were Tadashi Shoji’s choice as well as slick falling materials. The models seem to fly over the podium so tender they looked. Color palette is noble: dark blue, burgundy, black, ivory and white. Loose hairdo and burgundy lipstick added to the charm. I’m really excited about his collection and I’m waiting for Elie Tahari’s one to impress me.
