Spring Summer 12: What’s Trending?

by laurenlux

Ahhh it’s that exciting time of year again.. FASHION WEEK approaching! We’ve already seen brilliant designs and more to come from New York Fashion Week kicking off tomorrow and London Fashion Week next Friday! So, let’s talk runway. What, may you ask, has kicked off Spring Summer 12? Well, this season we’ll be seeing lots of ice cream pastel colours, all american themes, volume, romantic lace, floral (along with other) prints, shiny materials, florescent pink and yellow, paisley pattern, and emphasis on the hips (don’t ask me why). See below, some of my favourite displays of these themes. In my next post, I’ll lead to some shops where you can actually purchase some of these lovely trends! Stay tuned.
