Fashion Forward: Fall Fashion
Hard to believe fall fashions will be in stores in the next few weeks. But if you want to know what will be on the racks you have to look to the runways.
Lars Nilsson, Fashion Designer, says "We did them in very bright colors or black and white very graphic colors very bold colors..."
Speaking of color it seems to be bursting everywhere..
At Christian Dior John Galliano mixed and matched prints with just about everything.
John Galiano, Christian Dior, says "I love mixing that very rarified kind of refined textures or embroideries with the very savage which I think is very contemporary.."
Ralph Lauren kept it simple. All black.
Taking formal menswear and making it feminine.
A shrunken jacket paired with a ballerina skirt.
Long skirts, slim pants and loads of fringe and lace.
Donna Karan kept things cozy with peacoats and chunky sweaters.
Donna Karan, Fashion Designer, says "What we wanted to do was give the consumber something that says we care you know that is just not another piece of clothing .."
Karl Lagerfeld had a sexy message for Chanel. Rock and roll and a whole lot of attitude..
Daytime lingerie and tough tweeds with leather.
"Everybody has to be his own stylist.."
But regardless of all these runway trends some things will never change.
"No matter what we do in fashion we must admit the world lives in t-shirts and jeans..."
I'll vote for that look...
