Fashion Week For Dummies: Mercedes Benz NYFW S/S 2015 – Day 1
Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week (NYFW) need not be so hard to navigate for the mere mortal. Why should only the fashion posse have a heads up on what we’ll be wearing come spring/summer next year?
To save any awkward moments when you’re chatting with that ‘fash-forward’ girlfriend of yours, I’ve decided to dilute NYFW and summarise what shows you need to know about and what trends actually matter.

Here’s Day 1.
BCBG MAX AZRIA
With dresses fit for a grecian goddess, BCBG Max Azria dressed models in billowy frocks made from the finest silks and chiffons. A palette of pastels wafted down the runways.
Trend: When donning your next summer kaftan or maxi dress, tie the waist ribbon to the side in a geisha style bow.
Tome got the fashion formula right with plenty of variation in colour, patterns and textures. The past season’s trend of wearing sheer tops and skirts has definitely carried through will a plethora of see-through frocks flooding the runways.
Trend: Look for textured garments. Anything with a 3D feel will be ultra cool in the coming summer seasons. To make it bang on trend, pair a bright print tee with a textured high-waisted skirt. Tome-tastic.
