This blog has got a recap that will give you a window into the coolest trends in fabrics fashioned on the City's catwalks.
Fabulous fashion came down the runway look after look at all the designers' shows in trends such as paisley, sequins and lace paired with luscious wool. The use of creamy velvet and silk jacquards, brocades, and taffetas brought subtle touches of glamour to flowing evening gowns and structured separates. In addition, there were a number of traditional fabrics such as glen plaids, tweeds and wool boucles showcased with fur and beaded embellishments on sexy silhouettes. This was not your grandmother's tweed and lace!

Altuzarra RTW Runway, Fall 2016
Altuzarra stunned with pretty paisleys paired with knits. For evening, he used beautifully sheer fabrics that any woman would love and then seduced us with sequins to delicately cover all of our sexy bits.

Oscar de la Renta RTW Runway, Fall 2016
Oscar de la Renta's show was a nod to times past, where glamour and style walked hand in hand in everyday fashion. His muse for Fall 2016 could walk easily into the boardroom for an important meeting, then slip out to take an important client to dinner and the opera while custom-fitted in all of the pretty structured frocks made of silk jacquards, brocades, fur, and even leather. For red carpet events, there were many beautifully patterned and weightless silk fabrics displayed on drop dead gorgeous gowns with major drama.To add a touch of the glamorous life to your wardrobe, head on over to Mood Fabrics and check out our offerings of designer Oscar de la Renta. Then add some silk brocades, damasks, or taffeta fabrics to your cart to complete any "uniquely you" sewing project inspired by the heirloom quality looks from Oscar de la Renta's 2016 NYFW collection. I've included my favorite styles below to get you started.
Derek Lam RTW Runway, Fall 2016
Derek Lam modernized vintage fabrics with his mixed media approach to fall dressing. Printed silk blouses mixed with bright wool and sequined gowns juxtaposed with warm and fuzzy fur coats make great statement pieces. Added extra touches such as mirrored rhinestone buttons, horn shaped toggles, and chunky heeled boots created a special signature of the designers'; one that clearly says "signed with love". Mood has our very own collection of Derek Lam fabrics. Current offerings include knitted wool and French terry.
Mood Fabrics also has all the special buttons, trimmings, novelty wools and furs you need to recreate Lam's looks. Check out a few of my favorite colors and styles of wool and fur from Mood that will make a great Derek Lam inspired coat for your next project.
Jason Wu RTW Fall 2016
Jason Wu did it again! He gave us an amazingly diverse show full of many different forms, silhouettes and sumptuous fabrics, even with ostrich feathers on the runway. Modern understated sex appeal in luxurious and traditional fabrics such as fur, velvet, and embroidery, as well as ribbed knit and wool checks, lit up the stage with bright and joyous pops of color throughout.
Although the mood was serious and grown-up, it was more "grown and sexy" appealing to New York's hardest working women in the boardrooms. Mood offers just as diverse a selection of Jason Wu's designer fabrics. Pick up some to replicate that perfect amount of subtle sexiness in your wardrobe.
