I'm still reviewing the dailies from Fashion Week days two and three. There are two truly recurring themes during the first three days of Fashion Week; white will be big next spring and platforms are here to stay. Almost every show I've reviewed so far has a ton of white pieces. There are tops, pants, dresses, skirts, in every style and configuration you can imagine and white is present in many collections. Lots of designers are also showing platform shoes. This isn't about making the girls on the runway appear taller. The average fashion model is 5'9" to 5'11".
Below are three different takes on the white trend. Left to right are: Derek Lam, Cynthia Rowley and Jill Stuart. Bright white is the most prevalent shade on the runways so far but I really love Cynthia Rowley's whimsical take with the burn out polka dots as well as Jill Stuart's pleating and ruffles. The shades are also a nice departure from the bright white with the dove hue of Rowley's dress and the ivory of Stuart's.
