•  Spring/Summer 2017 Runway
  • ​Personal 2017/2018 Fall/Winter Runway
Galleries



This section of the website serves two purposes.  The first section provides  "heads up" on what to look for when shopping a personal closet. The mixes of garments in this first gallery demonstrate the use of my existing wardrobe items to update my personal look for Spring/Summer 2017 using the trends I wish to adopt from fashion runways last September.  Because the ready-to-wear fashion trends are projected in "Fashion Week" every season, I can forcast the personal adaptations that I will make to my closet to create the "looks" I will adapt.  I call these my "closet collections."  For Spring/Summer 2017, python inspired prints, stripes, the color white, and gingham prints are three main seasonal adaptations I have made and will be adding to the current gallery.  I am wearing a lot of thin and layered "turtlneck" and long sleeved looks which will be added as I wear them.

Major trends for Spring/Summer 2017 are:

Stripes and graphics
Slogan T-shirts
Big sleeves/wide shoulders
Atheleisure
Transparent garments
White/pink color schemes
Python inspired prints
Jumpsuits/overalls
Swim wear type shorts

A minor trend of the season is white boots, especially white patent (remember Coureiges (sp?)?  I have saved all year to buy the ones shown in the gallery; they are leather, not patent, I want something more classic than trendy white patent boots. (I did get a fabulous buy on some Michael Kors white patent oxfords (originally $150.00 that I bought at DSW) for 80% off; with my coupon I ended up paying under $20.00!! )  Such a deal!!

I am also wearing at least one pair of low platform sandals with a bit of studs on them now that  the weather is a bit hotter.  Knowing these were fashionable before the heat of summer, I was able to puchase them at a significant discount.​ (The major reason I watch the runways as soon as possible.)

You will not see any examples of big shouldered sleeves, jumpsuits, overalls, or swim wear shorts in my gallery because these trends do not suit my body type, lifestyle, or personal fashion style.  I will use subtle influences of atheleisure wear, transparent lacy sleeves, slogan t-shirts,  and graphics in selected ensembles.  (Which trends are YOU going to adopt, or ignore?....I would love to hear from you!)

 Winter 2017/18  fashion trends continue the leather look, even more transparency, "little girl" ruffles, turtlenecks, fur, wide belts, oversized prints in fanciful colors, oversized men's looks, enormous neckwear, belted jackets and coats, empire layers over longer shirts, and the checks and plaids of this past fall.  I have kept some of the same ensembles from this past fall in the gallery because they fit right into the upcoming fall season. 
This second "gallery" will post lay-downs of the ensembles I intend to create are inspired by the Fall/Winter 2017 runway shows completed in February.  I have already identified most of the looks that I wish to wear later in the year.  As you can see in the gallery, many of the same ensembles I used this last fall season will fit right into the style trends for next fall.

The 2017-2018 fall/winter "looks" I am building will be based on winter weight houndstooth, Harris tweeds, and other classic plaid fabrics.  I will definately be leaning toward the "menswear" look in these garments; especially in my choice of shoes.  I will also be wearing a lot of dark wash denims, especially with the darker hued Breton, turtleneck, and Polo tees that are still on trend along with the leather and fur looks of the past season re-imagined into a more ethnic look. It is much too warm to try on these ensembles now, but I think you  get the idea!  I will be adding to the "lay down" gallery as I assemble each look, and of course, will take a photo of the completed look when I wear and accessorize the look later on in the year.

Belts and scarves are definately fashion favorites once again; mixed patterns are still the rage; futuristic and oversized neckline treatments are even more fantastic and are not even being addressed in my styling ambitions this fall; neither is the extreme transparency of many of the fashions shown on the runway, although I do have a few projected examples (toned down, of course).
