NYFW: A Matter of BLACK, Fall 2013 Runway Report

New York Fashion Week has officially hit the midway mark. For weeks now designers have been leaking sneak peaks to their collections by posting snippets of their inspiration on their Facebook pages, Instagram and Twitter accounts. Finally, the designs have made their appearance on the runway and we can assess what the highlights of the shows have been so far. 
 
If there is one color that has been making a strong presence is Black! Not that black is a new trend, but it certainly showed up on many occasions. Some of the biggest names like Alexander Wang, Altuzarra and Donna Karan all revisited this classic hue. The common thread here is that black was introduced in a variety of textures using or combining leather, furs and knits.  

The runway may have had a fade to black moment but it was re-invented in extraordinary designs that were wearable, modern with an edge and quite luxe. If you are a fan of wearing black then next fall season is going to be right down your alley. Now don’t think that the shows were missing the allure of color…not at all. We will bring you more recaps as the week progresses and more shows are brought to life. Take a glance at a few collections that brought an array of looks in classic black. Any favorites?
