Fall 2010 Trends


Just this past week Seattle’s Fashion Group International did a presentation of Spring 2010 trends so that members of the fashion industry and shoppers alike could recap the trends in anticipation of the upcoming shopping season. Now the fashion industry is showing Fall ’10 collections and it’s interesting to see the carry over between Fall 2009 and the transition of Spring 2010. Many items from last fall have carried over with updates to this fall and on that same note, many items from Spring 2010 (which were inevitably carried over from Fall 2009) now make a recurring appearance for Fall 2010.

Leather and trench coats were among the key items for Spring 2010 and the trend was carried over into fall at Charlotte Ronson’s show when she showed a combination of the two in a beautiful leather trench coat.


Black and white themes as seen in Spring 2010 will continue to be popular for fall as seen at BCBG Max Azria.


And from head to toe at Helmut Lang.


A fall favorite- chunky sweaters were a major part of the Rag & Bone Collection from the traditional button-up to vests, gloves, dresses, and skirts.


Loving the collar detail as seen at Helmut Lang.


All over prints are still all over the runway for Fall 2010. Nicole Miller opted for an all-over print mini dress in a black, white and grey color story.


Helmut Lang played with graphic prints in this pretty dress with a beautiful drape.


A mismatch of prints is also a popular trend for Fall from plaids to stripes and florals. Charlotte Ronson paired a striped shirt with floral harem pants.


A total mismatch as seen at Peter Som.


Military influences are still important as seen in Fall 2009 and Spring 2010. Charlotte Ronson tapped the trend with a khaki camp shirt for day.


Rag & Bone opted for camo military jacket.


And Vivienne Tam chose a belted military-inspired jacket.


Followed by this rendition at Philosophy paired with a sheer glittery skirt.



Not usually considered a fall item, shorts were seen on the runway for Fall 2010 in the form of black dress shorts with a bow belt detail paired with a turtle neck and a grey overcoat also at Charlotte Ronson.



Or paired with tights and a top hat as seen at Alice + Olivia.



Fall is ripe for Special Occasion gowns and Jason Wu opted for playful romance in this Alice in Wonderland inspired gown. I love the length and the volume.


Or for a heavy dose of drama how about this beautiful Christian Siriano silk gown.



Tomorrow’s shows include Zac Posen, Carolina Herrera, Jill Stuart, Tracy Reese, Donna Karan and Perry Ellis. Stay tuned for more!
