Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York continues and each day more and more designers present their collections. Designer Nanette Lepore presented her most vibrant collection to date commenting, “We approach color from a new place each season. Everyone in this industry feeds off each other, and the fabric retailers have lately been pushing amazing, sturdy fabrics in these bright colors.” Never one to skip out on a big trend, Lepore put on a blinding show with head-to-toe electric colors. For those editors who thought the whole neon trend was played out already, they will surely learn that it’s just begun.

Tory Burch was a new-comer to the runway world presenting her first show in seven-plus years of being in the business! Burch chose as her starting point twenties-era Deauville, and many of the outfits had a Chanel-like feel to their design. Overall, this was a great first runway collection, and many editors have described her as being at her best. The collection had a playful twist on her classic looks—complete with tons of color, print, beading, and raffia fringe. The Tory Burch Fashion House surely found a way to have fun and express themselves with a bold presentation.
