I watched some of the most influential fashion shows for fashion week in September to get an idea of what trends the most influential fashion designers were following or trying to convey, so that I could have a bit of a go at being a 2019 fashion trend forecaster for fall winter 2018 2019 and spring 2019 fashion trends. So, what did I find out?
Fashion Trend Forecast
- Well there is a lot of yellow in dresses and mix and match tops, bottoms and accessories like gloves.
- Next are gold and silver sparkly patterns on garments or sparkly accessories like scarves.
- Fringing everywhere on black, yellow, gold or silver sparkly fringes in fashion outfits or accessories such as scarves.
- There also seems to be a lot of brown paired with yellow tops or bottoms.
- A bit of Lingerie lace attached to regular clothing such as skirts.
- Head to toe black in suits and or with weird accessories such as fur or leather bits.
- Last are animal prints like leopard, cougar style but it did not seem to be that prevalent, and mainly in the Milan collection.
- Bicycle shorts seem to be popular.
All other things I’ve seen in articles predicting the latest fashion trends for 2019, like Tie dye, Rusty reds colors, and winter layering I did not actually see at the fashion shows.
Fashion shows that I reviewed for my Fashion Trend Forecast
Alexander McQueen – London 2019
At this fashion show, I saw a wearable collection that speaks to the women like you a little bit more than the crazy unwearable outfits designed by McQueen in the past.
Maybe as the head designer is now Sarah Burton and no longer Mcqueen due to suicide by hanging in 2010.
There were a lot of suits but apart from head to toe black there was not a lot of adherence to the trends expressed above.
Fendi – Rome Italy 2019
This fashion show also did not follow the trends outlined above apart from brown. Designs featured white two piece outfits with long dresses and tops or just long Jackets with no pants and brown fake leather two piece outfits.
One of Fendi’s signature styles which featured heavily here, previously in shoes but now in jackets and bags was transparent plastic with brown edging.
Other Designs exclusive to Fendi were F fitting into each other in designs on shirts and bags.
This included a brown and orange bird of paradise print design.
Uncovered bicycle shorts were prevalent and I also saw Several Rusty orange outfits. Pleated skirts, fake tan leather skirts and dresses and embroidered see through mesh dresses.
Additionally utility belts seemed to be the go to for accessories with this designer. Although Fendi did not have any of the common elements of the latest fashion trends for 2019, they do have their own unique style and I would not blame you for adopting some of their designs.
Gareth Pugh – London 2019
At this show there was a lot of really weird stuff which probably related to gays more than anything.
I saw clothing with red background and a black striped polygon print which did not impress me too much. I would not include anything from this collection in my fashion trend forecast for the latest fashion trends 2019.
The more wearable fashion included fit and flare coats with metallic sections.
Mark Jacobs – New York 2019
This fashion show was just astounding with clothing that nobody in their right mind would wear or consider as part of the latest fashion trends for 2019.
The clothing line basically showcased the clown look.
I mean who really wants to look like a clown with overbearing Ruffles, and baggy gold and yellow dresses.
The only things that actually looked realistic were suits with gathered fabric. I would not include anything in this collection in my fashion trend forecast for the latest fashion trends 2019.
Milan – Italy, fall 2018 – 2019
This designer did have a lot of things that followed the basic trends outlined in my fashion trend forecast in the dot points above. which followed my fashion trend predictions for the latest fashion trends for 2019. Although it was mostly realistic, I did not really like any of the designs that much.
There was a lot of glittery gold and yellow. Also featured were glittery gold or silver patterns on dresses, skirts or tops.
Yellow pants or skirts paired with light brown or skin tone tops or vice versa. Lingerie fringing on shiny brown skirts or Shiny brown pants of some sort of plastic appearance.
Large, kind of green yellow checks or tartan, I guess you could call it featured large in this collection, sometimes with fringing paired with black or shiny skin tone or yellow pants or skirts or light brown or skin tone clothes. It was very much a mix and match theme.
Animal prints like leopard and an actual Friesian milking cow print. hide paired with leopard. Not sure if you would want to look like a cow! Lol.
Something that I quite liked were silver palm leaves on transparent mesh skirts and red floral prints. Patchy sparkly multi colored palette dresses and silver sparkly patterned dresses.
The accessories that were used included funny flat topped French foreign legion hats and whistles around the neck. Also Long plastic gloves like dish washing gloves in yellow, red, off pink and white. see above. So as part of my fashion trend forecast for the latest fashion trends 2019 so far, I would say that yellow, clothing and accessories as well as sparkly patterned clothing will have a big part in my fashion trend forecast.
Oscar de Larenta – New York 2019
I quite liked this collection and he did follow some of the trends that seem to be present in several design collections, namely yellow, fringing and head to toe black, while at the same time showcasing his individuality.
Where he departs from the themes followed in several collections is his designs with black and white checks and stripes.
Also something different was his Moroccan and Indian prints.
I also loved his Fit and flare dresses and cocktail dresses (not shown) in yellow. See the fit and flare yellow dress above.
Oscar is one of my choices for a designer that I would look to for the latest fashion trends 2019. My fashion trend forecast is that fringing as well as yellow dresses are going to become popular.
Prada – London 2019
This collection featured brightly colored nylon shorts, jackets and tops. Deep plunging necklines and Sailor Prada esc style jackets as well as 60’s Mod. Although some of the clothes in this collection were nice enough, none of it really followed the underlying theme of my fashion trend forecast for the latest fashion trends 2019 apart from a yellowish gold shirt here and there.
There seemed to be a mixture of clothes for those who were comfortable showing off their body (see through) and clothes for those who were not comfortable showing their body.
Roberte Cavalle – Italy, Spring/Summer 2019
This was my favorite out of all the design collections as the clothes were not only stylish to the extreme, but they were also realistic, feminine and individualistic, while still retaining some aspects of the latest fashion trends 2019 outlined in the first section of this article in line with my fashion tend forecast.
Those were notably bicycle shorts which were used mainly as undergarments with dresses, the color brown, minimal fringes and sparkly items like black and gold or silver sparkly sequin patterned outfits.
Some other nods to the trending themes included long black dresses with lace inserts as in head to toe black but in a sexy style.
Shorts and bicycle shorts featured with suite jackets in brown or brown and black combo as well as dresses with bicycle shorts of the same color underneath just poking out below the hem.
Vertical stripes in button up shirts or blouses were included in several outfits.
Other patterns included squares or checks, but the squares were skewed. Coin prints were on several garments and thick uneven wavering line prints.
This collection was definitely some of the sexiest clothing I’ve seen for the New Year and I would follow definitely Roberte’s lead for ideas on what to wear for the latest fashion trends 2019.
Once again fringing and sparkly outfits play a part in this collection. Additionally I have seen bicycle shorts under dresses and with utility belts in some of the shows.
In conclusion, my fashion trend forecast or latest fashion trends 2019 outlined in the first section of this article were included in only three of the collections and maybe one trend (brown) included in another two collections. So if you want to be in fashion for the coming New Year, the safest bets for fall winter 2018 2019 fashion trends and probable spring 2019 fashion trends would to be to buy some clothing and accessories with fringing. Some sparkly outfits and some yellow dresses or accessories. My favorite things in yellow were dresses, and I would definitely be ready to buy some sparkly clothes and fringing in clothing and accessories. My favorite designer was Roberte Cavalle. I just love his designs and he does include the trends in some of his designs. So that’s my fashion forecast for 2019. I may review some of the French fashion shows and update this article in the near future, and I will search for and add some clothing that you can buy that fits the trending themes. Until then happy shopping.
