Gretchen Christine Shares Designer trends for New York Fashion Week 2016

Fashion Week is only a week away and everyone here at Gretchen Christine is prepping for our KIA Style 360 Handbag show.  We are thrilled to be showcasing some of our latest designs in a collaboration with Raul Penaranda.  




We asked our friends with Elle Magazine for a sneak peek of what some other designers are up too and what they are using as design inspirations for 2016.

Check out some  sketches and mood boards from Marchesa, Delpozo, Marissa Webb, and more before their looks hit #NYFW.



The spring collection for Jil Sander Navy is filled with modern and eclectic silhouettes in a vivid color palette.




"For our Spring/Summer 2016 collection, we took inspiration from traditional oriental embroidery and combined it with our own signature street graphic prints for a fun and spirited collection," the designers of Ground Zero.


"Spring 2016 is romantic in a modern way with moments of 1970s safari," Rachel Zoe.




"Inspired by the rich textures and colors of the spice markets and the history of the artisans in Morocco," Marissa Webb, Creative Director, Banana Republic.




"The Milly woman is in the throes of a modern summer romance. Clean, minimal, sexy silhouettes set off an intense, vibrant color palette inspired by the sun and the sea," Michelle Smith, Founder and Designer of MILLY.




Reem Acra was inspired by the tales of One Thousand and One Nights.





Pamella Roland's collection is inspired by "the colors, shapes, and composition of minimalist master Frank Stella."




"His uniform & her dresses," Marissa Webb on the look and feel of her spring collection.




"This show is going to be a kick ass big bang…50 years in the making," Betsey Johnson tells us.








"South of the Border," Dennis Basso on what inspired his spring 2016 collection.





"I was inspired by contemporary artists Ellsworth Kelly and Jackson Pollock," Monique Lhuillier says of her collection. "Their art is dynamic, with the use of bold colors, and has a sense of freedom. I translated their use of vibrant colors with sculptural shapes and embellished beadwork into the collection."


We are so very excited to see all these amazing designs come to life during this years New York Fashion Week.  Starting on September 16th I will be doing a Twitter Takeover for Kia Style 360 in order to bring you all the front row action from the shows.  Stayed tuned for more from this years 2016 New York Fashion Week.


Much Love,

Gretchen Christine
