New York Fashion Week started up today, and many designers are in town to unveil their fall collections. Despite the ugly weather that ravaged through the Northeast leaving a large amount of snow dropping down on the "City that Never Sleeps," the shows did go on. Fashion does not wait for anyone or any weather, and the first day's schedule of shows went on as planned. Talented designers such as Tadashi Shoji and Thakoon presented their latest designs and trends for autumn are filled with wonder and new exciting trends.

One event that did stand out was #erin fetherston's fashion show. A palette of fall colors mixed in a romantic light and airy feel make up Fetherston's Fall 2017 collection.

The rich tones and mixtures of textures are a straight nod back to the 1970s with creative, unexpected inspiration coming from the designer's mind.

The looks of fall in one show

Models hit the runway at the Skyline Clarkson Square today during the first day of #New York #Fashion Week's showcase of women's fashions for fall. Shades of burgundy, indigo, olive, rose and saffron were seen from the sleek pieces shown on the runway. The pieces were made of elegant chiffon and jacquard, creating simple looks that can be a welcome addition to any wardrobe. The soft, feminine pieces include off-the-shoulder and poet sleeve dresses. The combination of varied textures paired with soft fabrics add personality and depth to create romantic silhouettes. The show saw the return of the fringed scarf, perfectly paired with the dresses in matching colors.

Shoes were a low-key detail, as the models walked the catwalk in ankle strap stilettos and slides in metallics and neutral colors.

Inspiration for the collection

Fetherston drew inspiration from moments experienced around the globe. The flowing dresses were an idea from seeing a flamenco dancer in Seville, Spain, to the mindful moments of enjoying tea in Marrakech, and the romance of Paris.
