Iridescent slip dresses, 90’s raver pants, the continuation of the skinny scarf, and fun silhouettes were all present at New York Fashion Week for the Spring/Summer 2016 season. With a myriad of trends spotted on each runway the major underlying theme of this fashion week was clearly individualism. Heavy hitters such as the Mulleavy sister’s for Rodarte, Shayne Oliver for Hood By Air and Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy (who showed for the first time in NYC) all embraced their roots and contrasting aesthetics, which made for an exhilarating experience for show goers and those watching from their smart devices alike. While fashion has always been an outlet of expression for the individual, these past few seasons’ large portions of designers were embracing normcore and minimalism advocating that less is more. This upcoming spring however, the maximalist is back and more finally equates to more.
