Designers such as BCBG Max Azria, Tadashi Shoji, Richard Chai & Desigual opened for the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week Spring 2015. We saw a plethora of styles and designs that we have been longing for, and many of them reminded us of our own pioneering designers such as Manish Malhotra, Gaurav Gupta, Urvashi Kaur & Payal Singhal, to name a few. Here are 5 key trends we spotted on Day 1 of NYFW that you need to know about!
1. Muted Colors:
The opening day, witnessed designers showcasing gorgeous layering techniques with flowing fabrics on subdued shades. A delicate pastel palette featuring blush, pale blues & other soft, clean colors was predominantly seen at the BCBG Max Azria show. Looks like pastels are going to be trending even harder next spring, and we couldn’t be more excited!

2. Crop Tops are Here To Stay:
Seemingly one of the strongest trends seen this season, crop tops literally cropped up at every designer’s show and at every fashion week including our own LFW & WIFW! We’re thrilled to see that the subtle bare midriff action is here to stay – Tadashi Shoji’s collection highlighted beautiful crop top skirt combinations in a soft palette ranging from white to teal and pink. Given that our favorite silhouettes from Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 showcased subtle, classy styles with a little midriff action going on, we love that we’re going to be seeing a lot more!

Yes, oh yes. While subdued hues were definitely a strong trend on Day 1, we noticed some stunning metallic and foil inspired styles. Richard Chai’s urban collection was high on glamour, in a unique street style inspired way. Bold colors & edgy cuts caught our eye at his show and how.

4. Flower Power:
If you were as delighted as we were to see the floral trend take over at the Autumn/Winter 2014 & LFW Winter/Festive 2014 a few weeks ago, we have great news. The florals & prints are turning into a key spring statement look, now that’s what you need to watch out for. Whitney Pozgay’s collection featured prints on prints that added an endearing element to each ensemble.

We saw headgear in all shapes and sizes at LFW a few weeks ago, and again at last night’s Desigual show at NYFW. The gorgeous floral headbands immediately took us back to Manish Malhotra’s Grand Finale at LFW Winter/Festive 2014 that also featured stunning floral inspired head gear.
