On New York Fashion Week

If one word could sum up the runway fashion at New York Fashion Week, it would have to be minimalism. The look popped up at least once or twice in almost all the major collections. For the purists, it was best worn in neutrals or pure white. Other designers breathed a bit of life into minimalist shapes by colouring them in bright shades (particularly burnt orange) and prints. Finally, a few bucked the trend by doing what New York fashionistas do best – that ladylike, Park Avenue princess look – whilst others looked to Hollywood glamour for inspiration.

My favourite collection? Probably DKNY – Miss Karan seems to have picked up where Isabel Marant left off in her gorgeous 1950s-inspired AW collection. Makes me want to grab a shake and put a dime in the dukebox.
