Spring ’17 Fashion Month Cheat Sheet

So much fashion, so little time. Spring ’17 Fashion Month was filled with many a memorable moment. From Marc Jacobs’ rave inspired collection, to Piccioli’s solo debut at Valentino, to the statement tee Chiuri sent down Dior’s runway, SS ’17 was brimming with newness and creativity to say the least. In an attempt to keep up with all the major news from New York to Paris, I’ve compiled a Fashion Month cheat sheet. Scroll down to find the trends, runway shows, and new ‘It’ models, that will have the fashion crowd talking till, well, it’s actually spring.

TALK OF THE MONTH:

Designer Debuts:

Chiuri, the first-ever female creative director of Dior, debuted her collection for the brand at PFW. While a bit edgier than the lady-like attire Dior is known for, Chiuri’s collection included sheer tulle skirts paired with military boots and fencing-inspired jackets that were a hit amongst the fashion scene.

Pierpaolo Picciolo’s Solo Valentino Debut

When feminine silhouettes and the finest fabrics combine, magic happens. #SpringSummer2017

Off-the-shoulder bohemian gowns accessorized with metal lipstick holders and romantic braids were just some of the gorgeous looks that Picciolo sent down the runway.

See Now, Buy Now:

 

A few select designers, including Ralph Lauren and Burberry, took part in the see-now-buy-now philosophy, offering ready-to-wear pieces for sale following their shows.

Collaborations:

Coco Chanel said, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” I like to think this is how the one earring trend started.

Cinch your waist in style with knotted belts and mini corsets.
