it's new york spring fashion week!

Spring Fashion Week is one of my favorite times of the year! I love seeing all the fun spring/summer clothing head down the runways despite the fact that the weather is starting to cool down. On today they posted the top 10 Pantone colors used in the women's and men's collections for Spring 2010. I was excited to see that a lot of the colors for women's wear I have been using in my own personal sketches, which makes me feel like I'm doing something right! [Now if I could only find a j.o.b...]

Andy & Debb 
Voluminous miniskirt. 

Baby Phat by Kimora Lee Simmons 
Our blazer or denim vest paired with shorts — any spring look can be accentuated with the addition of multistrand necklaces and platform sandals; shoes and accessories, as always, will play a crucial role in dramatizing any look. 

Badgley Mischka 
Little red cocktail dress. 

Carmen Marc Valvo 
A supersexy cocktail dress. 

Catherine Malandrino 
A deep purple jumpsuit with ornamental jewelry. 

Charlotte Ronson 
Double-faced chambray plaid boyfriend shirt. 

Cynthia Steffe by Shaun Kearney 
A sleeveless suede trench dress with a waterfall cascade collar in mint green. 

David Rodriguez 
My pleat-front top that can be worn as a jacket or as a two-piece dress with the matching skirt.

Dennis Basso 
A little fur bolero with inserts of lace or hand-embroidery. 

Erin Fetherston 
The drapy tie-front tan leather jacket. 

Lela Rose 
Striped surfer knits — using bold pastels interspersed with tones from the sea, these knits evoke a casual luxury that gives edge to any look. 

Peter Som 
A pale blue jacquard sheath that can take you from day to evening. 

Ports 1961 by Tia Cibani 
The transparent organza blazer in airy oasis.

Rebecca Taylor 
The quilted voile jacket that comes in ballet pink, white and black — the style is modern and cool, yet it is such a feminine and familiar fabric.

Reem Acra 
Accessories, necklaces and belts in any color that pops! 

Tadashi Shoji 
Garden pink silk crepe cocktail dress. 

Temperley London by Alice Temperley 
My Amora jumpsuit. 

Tibi by Amy Smilovic Lavender 
Shorts with cascading ruffles — the tranquil color paired with the feminine design makes for an elegant take on the everyday shorts design. 

Tracy Reese 
A classic, yet modern statement coat in passionfruit. 

VPL by Victoria Bartlett 
The new insertion bra in lilac. 

Yigal Azrouƫl
The Berber pant — a richly embroidered antique cotton piece in a range of all colors from the palette.

I can't wait to see these runway shots!!!! My runway coverage begins tomorrow <3
