Honorary mention to peplum which continues to be a trend in the Fall. Also, Red and Black were everywhere on the runways!

I’m so excited that Black & White and Leather continue to be on trend. I also loved seeing all the white on the runways. I also saw some metallics, including DVF and Marc Jacobs. And I am, of course, thrilled about military green and animal prints!
