New York Fashion Week (NYFW
) is one of the four major fashion weeks in the world, collectively known as the "Big 4," along with those in Paris, London and Milan.
The spring/summer 2018 season event wrapped up on September 14th. NYFW always set the tone for the fashion season and they often reflect what's going on today in arts, culture and even politics.
Fall is locking at our door, seems like it's a perfect time to look at the top fall trends from last spring’s NYFW.
The Top 12 trends from New York Fashion Week Fall/winter 2017

Soft and slouchy or trim and tailored, suits were a near-constant feature on the fall runways. With a panoply of styling options to probe for inspiration, there’s no reason we can’t all harness the power of the pantsuit next season.
Fire up your Boomerang app: fall’s best party pieces are made for shimmy-shaking. Whether strategically deployed on the hem of a skirt or cascading down the length of a dress, fringe added a sense of playfulness to many collections.
If there was one color that ruled the runways from the first show of the week to the last, it was burgundy. Rich, deep, and regal, the shade proved ideal for monochromatic looks, and elsewhere paired well with periwinkle or bright red.
The United States may be a bit of a scary place for many people right now, but that didn’t stop designers from taking inspiration from the country’s more hopeful elements. For his first season at Calvin Klein, Raf Simons
sent out an ode to American youth to the soundtrack of David Bowie’
s “This Is Not America,” which included quilted parkas, sheer-torsoed varsity sweaters, and plenty of denim, along with the most literal tribute: a swingy stars-and-stripes flag skirt. Elsewhere, Western motifs reigned, showing up on grommeted leather jackets, fringed shirts, and prairie dresses at shows from Alexander Wang to Coach.
Call it tartan, plaid, or check—it was everywhere this season, used on Wall Street-worthy pantsuits, preppy pleated skirts, mannish coats, and even an evening gown or two (lookin’ at you, Jenny Packham).
Yellow isn’t always the easiest color to wear, but for fall, designers turned to more forgiving shades of goldenrod and saffron. It looked especially appealing in eveningwear, presenting a fresh alternative to the LBD at Monse, Jason Wu, Cushnie Et Ochs, and beyond.

“Self care” may be among the most popular phrases to emerge out of the past year, and on the runway it translated into plush cocoon coats, oversized sweaters, and generous silhouettes. Comfort: one trend we can always
Let’s Get Political
Brands that may have shied away from overt political statements in seasons past let their views known this week with parades of protest slogan T-shirts, the CFDA’s pink “Fashion Stands With Planned Parenthood” buttons accessorizing runway looks and final bows, and even a made-for-Instagram moment at Adam Lippes with models carrying signs reading “My Body, My Choice” and “Women’s Rights Are Human Rights” at Washington Square Park.
If there’s one place where the nipple has decidedly been freed, it’s the catwalk. Besides Calvin Klein’s boob-baring sweaters, there were sheer tops at Adam Selman and Zadig & Voltaire, strategically-paneled pieces at Narciso Rodriguez, and new takes on the ever-popular red-carpet naked dress at Prabal Gurung and Jason Wu.
Calling all magpies: designers offered all sorts of ways to dress like the disco ball of your dreams this season, from a slouchy sequin dress worn over a camel turtleneck to a Studio 54-worthy suit covered in over one million Swarovski crystals (Brandon Maxwell, you hero, you).

In a week when showgoers braved 30-degree weather in bare legs and coats shrugged off-the-shoulder, designers proposed a welcome array of actually-practical outerwear. Shearling, especially, was a popular choice. It came luxe and lacquered at Proenza Schouler, on the kinds of coats fashion girls will be lusting after all season; at Yeezy the look was humbler—though this being Kanye West
we’re talking about, we don’t expect the price tag to match. At Marc Jacobs, Kendall Jenner
strutted the city sidewalk in a fuzzy jacket (in burgundy, natch) that tipped its hat to ’90s hip-hop culture
The twisted shirting trend that dominated last season is still going strong for fall, with sliced-and-diced pieces ruling the runway at Public School, Monse, ADEAM, and beyond. At Milly, creative director Michelle Smith
chose “Fractured” as the theme of the collection, which manifested in sequin dresses with slashed hems, oxfords pieced together this way and that, and sweaters torn practically in two. Symmetry is so overrated, anyway.
上个季节主宰的扭曲的衬衫趋势，在秋季仍然很强劲，切片、裁片继续出现在T型舞台上。 在米利，创意总监米歇尔·史密斯（Michelle Smith）选择“破碎”作为设计的主题，表现在剪裁的薄片连衣裙，牛仔裤以这种方式拼接起来，毛衣实际上从两个人中撕裂开来。 无论如何，对称性被高估了。
