Harper’s Bizarre was on the many fashion news companies that reported on New York’s fashion week this year. According to Bizarre, the trends this year were flower power, out of Africa, sport couture, lessons in geometry, sorbet separates, and our favorite, Gatsby’s got it- inspired by Daisy Buchanan of the Great Gatsby.
1920s sequins styles with low cut necklines and mid-calf length dresses was shown by designer Derek Lam. Designer Rachel Zoe’s dresses were long and elegant with puffy, organic sleeves, giving the look an angelic feel. The runway even saw some flapper dresses by Marchesa.
Runway fashion has often looked to the past for influence. And this year, with the “Gatsby’s got it” trend, it couldn’t be more true. Runway fashion is incredibly expensive, but the more frugal fashionista can look to this year’s trends for inspiration. Rubber Soul Vintage Fashion in San Diego, CA which provides affordable vintage fashion, can be one way to achieve it.
