New York Fashion Week 2012

Feb 17, 2012

New York Fashion Week spotlights top designer collections for the coming fall. It shows us what trends are coming up in color, style and accessories. This year’s fashion week ran from February 9-16, and featured well over 100 designers from all over the world, from high fashion like Vera Wang’s wedding collection to everyday style from Levi’s. Here’s a rundown of three designers teens love to watch, with featured photos from their collections.

Betsey Johnson’s signature bright colors once again graced the runway this year with hot pinks , bright yellows and oranges, accenting black, grey and white. The skirts were short, the boots were high, the nail polish was black, and the hair was sleek and straight. Here’s Betsey’s take on her  style choices:

“Making clothes involves what I like…color, pattern, shape and movement…I like the everyday process…the people, the pressure, the surprise of seeing the work come alive walking and dancing around on strangers. Like red lipstick on the mouth, my products wake up and brighten and bring the wearer to life…drawing attention to her beauty and specialness…her moods and movements…her dreams and fantasies.”

J Crew’s runway looked not surprisingly like a walking version of their catalog. They showed exactly what you would expect from the preppy staple: lots of chunky layers, muted earth tones, messenger bags, and cleanly manicured, unpolished nails.

Nanette Lepore, favorite stylist to celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Sharon Stone, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Eva Longoria Parker, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, and Abigail Breslin, featured a palette of chartreuse (bright lime green), orange and royal blues, with short skirts and clean lines.

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
