Fashion and Beauty Trends From Fashion Weeks Fall/Winter 2016 FW16

Fashion Weeks typically follow certain trends globally, with each city having things in common with and differing from the other parts of the globe. In the videos below I discuss trends we’ve seen in fashion and beauty from Paris, London, Milan, and New York Fashion Week.

Fashion Trends:

As we move from the 90’s and grunge into the 70’s- we’re seeing both aesthetics for both SS16 and FW16.  Layering, androgyny, boho, mod, goth, grunge, and 70’s glamour were embodied in the collections. Womenswear took on a powerfully androgynous tone with leather turned armor- even plated! Menswear was effeminized with silk, chiffon, and lace.  Pastel colors and hair continue to trend on and off the runway.

Runway Beauty and Make-Up Trends

Beauty was, for the most part consistent in European fashion weeks- dark eye, muted face and lips, with the exception of a few designers- among them, Yamamoto and Saint Laurent.  If the eyes weren’t smudged, grungy, and darkly bold, then the lips were black or dark berry…with the exception of Saint Laurent’s full-face 80’s look.
