The 12 Fashion Trends From The New York Fashion Week S/S '18 Shows

The show must go on — and while at it, why not make it a great one? Amidst a sombre mood in America (read: twin hurricanes, Sept 11 anniversary, and yes, Trump), New York Fashion Week provided an antidote with its optimistic mood and joie de vivre with plenty of colours and a generous dose of skin and shine. Seeing models walk the Marc Jacobs finale to an aria from the 1981 French film Diva was great optics for that message. Here, we round up of the trends and looks that conveyed that message.
