A Couple of Trends for the Spring Season

Thursday, January 29, 2009

So my favorite class, hands down, has to be Fashion Magazines. My professor is Amanda Hallay - the international fashion editor of Couture and Men Mode magazines (and the author of two novels).

Anyways, Fashion Week is coming up, and I'm so excited to see the shows and the collections (15 more days!!). But according to my professor, who also used to be a trend forecaster/analyst, told us that this Spring season will be more about pastel colors, and more of a sweet, flirty, innocent look for girls. We're moving away from the dark, edgy, trashy looks. No more sexy skanky poses in ads, no more mini minis, no bras showing, and no more wayyy low cut tops.

lol, we definitely had a class discussion on skanky vs. sexy one class inspired from the page always featured in Cosmopolitan magazine.
And remember when purple was the color of the season last year? Well, this season is definitely about coral. There were a lot of coral shades worn at the SAG awards and a lot of coral featured in multiple magazines.

Another thing I've been seeing a lot are python/snakeskin - anything from shoes to bags to clothing. If only I could find a python/snakeskin clutch now, I'd totally be set. lol
