The New York Fashion Week Frenzy finally came to an end this weekend.

But I still Can’t get over some of the amazing trends displayed this by some of my favourite designers as they showcased their latest Spring Summer 2015 collections.

Here’s a look at the 4 trends I LOVED this season:

1) Ralph Lauren Goes Chic Safari

It was a very Maharajah-meets-Out-of-Africa scene that was displayed on the runway. Typically haute safari gear was showcased for the wilds of the Hamptons.

2) Marc Jacobs Reinvents The Military Uniform

This season Marc Jacobs gives a new twist to an old form. He adds an element of Utilitarianism for the traditional Military uniform. It was all about uniforms on the runway. What stood out for me however was the absolute detailing with the use of embellishment.Absolutely loved this collection!

DVF never fails to impress, this time was no exception! Côte d’Azur was the starting point for the new collection and it all fell into place thereafter. The checks print was seen in galore on the runway and it was an absolute HIT!
