Trends from Fashion Week 2018

Bold prints and striking silhouettes are on the fashion horizon. Read Fashion Fabrics Club’s roundup of the most wearable and most-wanted trends from the runways of the past month’s Fashion Weeks around the globe.

Survival Clothes

Utilitarian silhouettes and fabrics (or “survival clothes” as Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour calls it) were seen marching the runways of multiple designer collections in New York. These designs are intended to keep the wearer warm and cozy. The most prevalent trend? Quilting—seen in jackets, pants, and even skirting.

Seeing Spots

All animal print, all day. We’re seeing spots—and zebra stripes, tiger print, even cow print—in everything from outerwear to handbags, suiting to shoes, and everything in-between.

Futuristic Fabrics

Mesmerizing metallic and interesting iridescent fabrics ruled the runway, showing up in everything from flowy foiled frocks to structured holographic-like trenches.

Plaid on Print

Plaid continues to be an important and popular print on the fashion scene, but this time around it finds a new partner: other bold prints. Try it with romantic, dark-based florals, leopard print, or even other plaids.

Hot Pink

The time of the low-key millennial pink is over, and it’s being replaced with its bright, bold sister: hot pink.

Leather Trenches

Leather trenches never go out of style, but for fall ’18, the more Matrix-like, the better. Options ranges from boxy genuine leather styles to voluminous shiny polyvinyl.

Faux Furs

The faux fur coat is a fluffy, vegan-friendly piece that has been a staple in the wardrobes of the fashion set for a while now, but now more than ever we’re seeing extra emphasis on the “faux,” rendered in fantastical shades like power red, tangerine, mint green, and golden yellow.
