NY and Paris Fashion Weeks, Spring 2014

Here in Connecticut, brutal temperatures and piles of snow make spring feel like a distant dream.  In the fashion world, however, spring lines have already been designed and are being launched at events around the world.  This exciting look at trends and styles to come captures the attention of anyone interested in fashion.  In particular, New York Fashion Week (Feb 6-13) and Paris Fashion Week (Feb 25-Mar 5) provide an exciting venue for designers to showcase their new pieces.

The worlds of fashion and design influence each other in so many ways.  Colors, patterns, textures, and styles transpose from one medium to the other, so that looking at the world of fashion provides insight into the world of design.  My own love of fashion is closely intertwined with my passion for interior design.  Browsing through designs from various Fashion Week events inspires me and provides a boost to my creativity.
