Prints were everywhere at LFW, with floral, stripes and graphic prints being at the core. Frayed Edged fabrics by Christopher Kane’s and Topshop Unique’s rough edged boucle suit and Marios Schwab’s denim dress for laid back day wear carved a different direction of ease with simplicity. Designers gave iridescent fabrics a feminine guise with fluid shapes and sugary hues. Stripes and graphic prints ignited the runway with their presence in range showcased by Burberry, Mulberry, Jasper Conran, Peter Pilotto and Ryan Lo collections.

Sheer fabrics were predominantly woven into NYFW runway dresses. Crepe, poplin, denim fabrics, chambray also graced the runway with their presence. Jill Stuart’s little black dress (LBD) in black crepe with black lace. Marissa Web crafted a masterpiece with slim sheath covered in a zigzag mix of flowers, shattered glass and stripes and touches of “powernet,” sort of like a mesh. Rebecca Taylor’s crisp white poplin shirting and geo-eyelet layered with tactile matelaffe, laminated knits and crystal-encrusted lace was a trendsetter. Francisco Costa employed woven leather, snakeskin with a reflection of light and summery hues set in the backdrop of urban landscape.
