The chaos of Fashion Week in NYC is over and we finally have some time to enjoy the beautiful new styles that this event brings about! We were mesmerized by the deep hues we spotted, such as plum, midnight and black, while we enjoyed fun pops of colors such as electric blue and shocking red. As we suspected, whites, off-whites and neutrals played a big part on this season’s runways.
As you can guess, we really had our sights on the latest feather fashions that are hitting the runways. We were not disappointed! Ostrich had been spotted all over the Spring runways, and this fall seems to show that these feathers are still hot. The picture above shows a few romantic feathered gowns by Marchesa, who never fails to impress us. Ethereal Ostrich is used as a a fringe on the hem and tufts are used as accents all over. Fluffy Goose is used underneath a silvery lace gown that we simply fell in love with!
Erin Fetherston (yes, we love her name) took an edgier route with her use of feathers. These party-going marabou and lurex feather jackets are going to be this fall’s go-to item!
Matthew Williamson and Oscar de la Renta

Ralph Lauren took fall’s feathers in a different direction- using a mixture of Pheasant tails for broches and boutonnieres. The designer also created a show-stopping bolero made of Rooster Coque and Ostrich.
At the Prabal Gurung show we saw again the use of Ostrich feathers as a romantic detail. The designer included one of the hottest colors of the season- electric blue!
Other looks by Prabal Gurung shone in stark white, showing that Ostrich looks just as great on the tail of a gown as it does as on a jacket cuff.
Last (but not least) we have Naeem Khan who seems to love Ostrich as much as everyone else these days! Naeem Khan is known for incorporating feathers into his looks every season, but we are really loving his Rooster Hackle and Ostrich skirts!
