After a whirlwind week of colour, patterns, sexy silhouttes and skyscraper heels, New York Fashion Week is over for another season. Whilst some designers are celebrating their triumph and taking a well-deserved break, the work for us at Joel & Son Fabrics has only just begun.
We have always strived to deliver you the most up-to-date and fashionable fabrics, and where else to get inspiration than fashion week itself. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite collections and show you how to get creative!
Ralph Lauren’s Spring ’14 collection featured a vast array of monochrome ‘schoolgirl’ looks in stripes & checkered designs, with a choice of silk & cotton fabrics for a more springtime feel. From a monochrome start to a vibrant finish – Ralph Lauren continued on to give us pops of vibrant block colours – mint green, baby yellow & bright red to name a few.

Reed Krakoff’s Spring ’14 collection may have played it safe in neutral shades, but he did so with perfection, adding a subtle pop of zesty tones. Check our favourite picks:
The Brit did us proud! Victoria delivered a gorgeous abundance of sorbet-coloured dresses in blocks & pleats with some bold prints and top quality fabrics, including wool gaberdines, silk satins & crepe de chines.
See you next week for our London Fashion Week sum up!
