The season of fashion weeks has officially has dawned upon us. And yes we are excited, very very excited! It is interesting to see how creative risks are taken by designers to up their game in the harsh cut -throat world of fashion business year after year.
There are 4 major fashion weeks to watch out for – New York, London, Paris and Milan. Most of the fashion weeks showcase both pret/ready-to-wear and couture, however its the ready -to-wear clothes and designs that catch my attention the most. What’s the fun of fashion weeks if its limited to the runway and can’t be part of our closets. Yeah! that’s how the world of fashion has changed from being private and exclusive to going full on -PUBLIC!
Here are a my top 3 designers from the recently concluded New York fashion week SS’17. These collections hit the right note by being “ready to wear” in the real sense of it for all occasions.
