Who, what, wear: New College and New York Fashion Week

  • Post author:

Upcoming trends paraded down the runway at New York Fashion Week, forecasting what looks will be hot for spring. Clothing, accessories, makeup and hair were at their most avant-garde, styles that will filter down in the next few months until they end up on the racks of the fast fashion stores

accessible to the general population.

All-white outfits were shown on almost every runway,
a launching point for major trends. While neon has been everywhere for the past few years, designers are ready for the clean slate of the upcoming whiteout.

“We have been so saturated with so many colors that I feel an overall trend in the fashion world will be white,” Cesar Galindo told IBTimes TV.

Galindo, a big name in prints and bright colors, showed minimalistic white silhouettes in his line CZAR by Cesar Galindo.

While colors are being ushered out for spring, trends like the crop top will be sticking around for a little longer. Shown at Tracy Reese, 3.1 Phillip Lim and more, the belly-baring shirts are not leaving the fashion world yet. Sheer fabrics are also gaining momentum, adding to the peek-a-boo effect many runways showed.

Masculine fashion for spring is playing a game of catch-up, finally collecting the trend of patterned coats and pants that the women’s lines showed last year. DKNY featured rolled hems on pants; a little flash of ankle for those masculine-minded may be the best way to be on trend this spring.

Of course, students at New College follow their own trends. Mixing patterns and thrifting clothing are popular, though the general style of students varies so much from person to person. The Catalyst caught up with some fashion-minded folk on campus to see who is wearing what.
