NYFW “Bling it on!”
Designer Christian Cowan surveyed his customers and discovered that they longed for extravagant homewear and not sweatshirts and leggings as one might guess. Maybe after almost a year of staying at home, social distancing, isolation and quarantine we secretly wish for some flashy frocks and razzle-dazzle. But it’s not a secret anymore. “Bling it on!” New York Fashion Week, take us away!

Stunning attention to the smallest details, Zimmerman.
Trend alert: Canary yellow turned up on just about every runway. If this color doesn’t work for you, add it as an accent; a handbag, shoes, headband, jewelry. Note the chic wide leg trousers. Zimmerman.
