Fall 2014 Trend Report: Printed Gowns and Dresses

The lovely prints that have surfaced for the Fall 2014 season are the standouts of New York Fashion Week for me, from the already-dramatic gowns of Monique Lhuillier, Naeem Khan, and Dennis Basso enlivened with inspired prints to the playful dresses by Tracy Reese, Alice + Olivia, and Carolina Herrera.

The show started off with a lot of black, and even though it was sheer and soft, the opening numbers felt too somber. Fortunately the tide quickly turned back to the light, airy romanticism we associate with Vera.
