New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2024 took place at various venues across New York City, with shows and presentations being held at different locations, such as Spring Studios, Skylight on Moynihan, Eyebeam, Gallery, and The Shed. We saw collections from both veteran and emerging designers including Christian Siriano, Helmut Lang, Michael Kors, Carolina Herrera, Laquan Smith, Thom Browne, and many others.

This season was characterized by a diverse range of styles and influences, from futuristic and sci-fi-inspired designs to classic and timeless pieces. The collections ushered in new trends for the upcoming year, such as utilitarian coats, extra-tailored pieces, oversized bags, business tailoring, bright reds, and loads of lace.

Read on for some of New York’s hottest trends for this fall/winter 2024.

Strictly Business

A definitive shake-up from the usual dress attire, New York runways jumped straight into a professional setting with collections from Proenza Schouler and Brandon Maxwell. Models were dressed in pencil skirts, trench coats, and blazers, signaling a call to professionalism. Designer Thom Browne wasn’t afraid to take on the trend and incorporated blazers, ties, and shoulder pads alongside layers of his stylistic storytelling.

Shades of Red

Among other colors, red seems to have taken the fashion world by storm, with models all dressed in splashes of crimson. Collections from Christian Siriano and Alice + Olivia didn’t hesitate to make their looks pop, wowing audiences with dresses, boots, and decked out in shades of red. Even designers David and Philipe Blond featured stunning scarlet looks in The Blonds FW24 runway show

Comfortable, but Chic

Cozying up this year’s fashion week was the appearance of multiple kinds of protective, snug articles of clothing. Brands such as Jason Wu, Collina Strada, and Aknvas welcomed the cold weather, decking their models out in knitwear. The runways warmed up with the sight of sweater gowns, scarves, and layers of crochet one would pluck out for a chilly, snow day.

Hyper Femininity

Some may think that the love for pinks, bows, and all things girly has dimmed ever since the stellar Barbie movie release. As we can see from NYFW, hyper-femininity has instead kept a steady momentum. Inspiring brands like Carolina Herrera and Tory Burch, designers incorporated frilly mini-skirts, knee socks, and ruffles into their designs. All of these romantic, playful elements resulted in looks that fit right inside a girl’s dream Pinterest board.

This year’s runway designers took a particular liking for lace. With collections from Cucculelli Shaheen, Frederick Anderson, and Bibhu Mohapatra, brands blew audiences away with models immersed in lace. Dark lace is presented as an after-dark alternative, with sheer, suggestive fabric being a key trend. Whether it be lace cutouts or lacy sheer skirts, these looks captivated audiences.

Statement Coats

Designers showed statement coats that finished off looks with a bang. Collections from Khaite and Collina Strada utilise these statement coats to coincide with the growing adoration for faux fur. Brands like Libertine styled their models with grand, dramatic coats that demand one’s immediate attention. Whether they were cropped, lined with fur, or a simple trench coat, these statement pieces did what they intended: make a statement!

Large Bags

Many looks seen on the runway were accompanied by oversized bags. These large statement pieces were there to accessorize designers’ looks, making a stellar outfit appear even more stunning. Designs from the likes of Brandon Maxwell, Helmut Lang, Libertine, and Michael Kors highlighted this best, complimenting their models’ clothing with large bags.

Faux Fur 

A hit across many Fashion Week runways, faux fur is a staple in the fashion world for fall. Models were decked out in eccentric furs as they stalked the runways, wearing designs from brands like Proenza Schouler, Prabal Gurung, and LaPointe. In Peter Do’s Helmut Lang show, he experimented with large fur coats. This year, designers combined both their love for faux fur and obsession with big statement coats.
