From February 7th to the 14th, established designers and upcoming brands will reveal their fall 2013 collections in the heart of New York City. For the international crowd, this event leads to a fashion tsunami that hits London, Milan and Paris later in the year. Fashionistas and industry experts clamor for Fashion Week tickets, and everyone is looking forward to using Lincoln Center’s digital check-in system that will streamline the event’s hectic ticket-check and seating process.
Fall 2013 Fashion Trends
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is the epitome of glamour and innovation. February’s catwalk collections promise to represent an inspired assortment of modern and vintage trends. Established brands in the high-fashion and casual wear sectors are reportedly remixing their classic and nostalgic pieces. Reflective trends are heating up as more designers focus on revitalizing nostalgic prints and traditional designs. Global and historic influences appear in many fall 2013 collections. Homespun Shaker-knit sweaters and updated Fair Isle patterns are experiencing a huge resurgence, and functional rustic designs are being paired with fashionable updates for the fall and winter months.
In line with the mid-century revival, the designs debuting at the February 2013 Fashion Week will have abstract expressionist features with minimalist undertones. Strong patterns paired with bold solids appear throughout men’s and women’s collections along with decorative tailoring that creates a refined facade. Designers will reveal all of their dazzling fall collections during this exclusive week-long event. There are sure to be more splurge-worthy pieces at MB Fashion Week than there are in most stores.
