MESSAGE FROM THE SPRING-SUMMER 2018 FASHION SHOWS

“UNIQUE PIECES!”

I adore the fashion industry. I have been in it and around it for what seems to be my entire life. And I consider myself an expert on analyzing fashion shows for my clients; finding both the major trends and the individual items for consumers.  At a glance I can see the design statement of any show. It takes me less than one second.  That was part of my job as CEO of IM International, fashion forecasting company from 1968-1988.  I had to see through the “Entertainment and Publicity” factor and find the needle in the haystack.  But back in the day… the clothes were only 10% entertainment and 90% real and made for the consumer to ultimately buy. Gradually, however, it has flopped to where it is now 90% Publicity. There is no longer anything serious on the catwalks – although they are a few exceptions to that rule for sure.

Back in 1970 (not to sound too much like an old-timer) it was the grand finale which was the Big Spoof. It was the Bridal Finale that we all waited to see, knowing it would be off-the-chart amusing. “Space age Brides”. Or “Animal Brides” Or Heroin Brides”. Or “Brides in Transparent Dresses”. Now… increasingly… a large segment of each show is Spoof-Y… designed to get a response… and not a serious one.  And yet a few Style Reporters review the shows as if they are serious.   They are not.

Most of these designers are superlative talents. Brilliant. And yet some are now reverting to clown clothes.  And it makes me angry because when pushed to the limit, it makes a mockery of fashion enthusiasts – and inspires them to turn away from fashion. Not to buy and to revert to a college-age DIY attitude.

Nevertheless… there is much that can be gotten. My advice to any young “fashionista”… Do not look at a collection for an overall statement – except in very general terms like, let’s say, “Minimalist”.  I found some fresh-looking pieces that I would buy today. I call them “Unique Pieces”.

For example: (1) The sheer, voluminous skirt (2) Tiered, Asymmetrical skirts (3) The Androgynous Suit (4) Return of the Blazer (5) “Unexpected” Plaids and Prints Mixes (6) Oversized Art and Floral Prints (7) The Diaphanous, Translucent dress (8) The Sleeveless Shift dress (9) The One-Shoulder Printed Dress
