trend spotting: NYFW Fall 2013

New York Fashion Week just ended and Manhattan has been abuzz with talk from the tents at Lincoln Center. Every February and September, the streets of the Upper West Side are filled with sky-high stilettos, furs, fashion-forward hair cuts, and designer handbags worth thousands (like this crazy one). As predicted, jewel tones made a splash all over the runways with gorgeous gowns in ruby red, sapphire blue, emerald green, amethyst aubergine and light aquamarine. We (sadly) didn’t make it to the tents, but our sources confirmed that bright colors were featured in almost every ready-to-wear collection. Get ready for bold fall style!

What does this mean for you, our dear brides? It’s your chance to use current fashion trends to justify that BRIGHT RED you’ve been dying to add to your wedding palette. Add it in the form of classic red lips, or shocking red shoes. Or, add sapphire blue ties to the guys ensemble, or a hint of emerald green in a pocket square.

We also know NYFW influences Bridal Market week and we can’t wait to see what Monique, Reem, and Vera have in store for April! Here are some of our runway fav’s we’d like to see toned down and re-created as bridal gowns:
