Floral prints are back. At the New York Fashion Week which officially took off on Monday, a new line of collections from fashion designer Carlos Miele showed attractive floral prints. Models were seen in the runway wearing clothes with bold colors and bright whites. Curved lines of yellow, orange and red can be seen on the form-fitting dresses which the models successfully strutted down the catwalk. Off the shoulder dresses featured highly, along with single strap dresses which signals the necessity of the strapless bra.
These kind of prints are making a presence these days in recent fashion shows, as is the continuing popularity of maxi dresses. At the recently concluded Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, the spring collection of Carolina Herrera also showed strong floral prints on her layered dresses. These kinds of dresses can either be dressed up for more elegance and glamour, or dressed down with a sharp jacket for a more everyday look that could be worn in the office.
Fashion designers Donna Karan, Jenny Packham and Tracy Reese also joined the bandwagon as flowery prints can be seen on their upcoming collections.
More than a hundred thousand stylists, buyers, fashion editors and celebrities are expected to grace this fashion event that’s currently ongoing.
