Miss Petaluma On…New York, New York

Here’s a little 60 second round up of the shows so far, as AW10 kicked off in a chilly New York this week.  Over all, I must say I’m impressed with what’s to come.  There’s a certain level of sophistication on the runways, one the cooler months deserve.  Tonnes of leather, flashes of hot colour, draped trousers and mixed textures, it’s power dressing for the tweenies -confident  clothes for the urban warrior princesses we are.

Models Backstage at Jason Wu's AW10 show

Key words that come to mind are:

  • black
  • goth
  • utilitarian
  • clinched waists
  • urban
  • drape
  • buckles
  • shiny panels
  • chilli
  • leather
  • Cobalt blue
  • Big, rounded shoulders

Alexander Wang mixed tailoring, layered knits and bondage influenced seperates for his darkly sensual collection

This is just Altuzarra's third collection, but it was packed with hot tailoring, slashed S&M-like details and an overall fierce silhouette

Rich colours were well used at Charlotte's show, particularly chilli, which I predict will be one of the key colours of the season

Cythia Rowley chose volume and texture as her reoccuring theme, using oversized fringing and feathers.

Jason Wu continued this season's girly look with voluminous evening wear. One of Mrs Obama's favourite designers, Jason Wu based the collection on the style of late photographer Irvin Penn.

Curvy? Then look away! Calvin Klein's streamlined collection, featured stiff tailoring, rounded shoulders and skinny lapels on glossy fabrics

The typical rainbow colours at Lacoste, were the perfect highlight to the wintery slates and black, with silhouettes straight out of Claire Huxtable's wardrobe

Micheal Angel is known for his stunning digital prints and this collection was no exception

Rich vegetable colours offset monochrome at Isaac Mizrahi's show, where once again chilli reigned supreme

If you've seen The September Issue then you'll remember the charming Prabal Gurung. His collection was spot on, easy to wear and oh-so-chic black with clinched waistlines

The ever flamboyant Jermey Scott had the ghetto-fabulous covered, showering his collection in jewels, fur, skin-tight jersey and an eponymous logo print.

Hurrah for big cardigans, Diane Von Furstenberg showed us how to keep our glamour levels high while still donning the layers

Next, home turf – London……
