New York Fashion Week never disappoints, as the eccentric styles of the streets seep onto the runway. The patterns of NYFW didn’t disappoint either, as the flashy, the classy, and even the trashy had their place in many collections. Let’s take a look at the best patterns from this year’s NYFW.
Animal print was utilized by many designers this year, and some, like Re/Done, even mixed their animal print. Brandon Maxwell and Tomas Maier worked with colorful leopard print, while Kith simply used a strip of cheetah. Trina Turk fashioned a suit of owl heads on the print, perfect for a charity ball taking donations for saving the owls
